A word from the photographer
ON THIS NIGHT: QUEEN
With the increased popularity in Queen due to the release of the Bohemian Rhapsody movie, I am so pleased to have my 1980 concert images seen by many new and old fans of the band. On this night I was photographing Queen at Madison Square Garden in New York City. They were on tour supporting the newest album, The Game. This album was to be a high point for the band in the US due to the singles “Another One Bites the Dust”, their best-selling single, and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”.
Spectacular light show
Queen were known for their spectacular light show as well as the amazingly photogenic Freddie Mercury. As I mentioned earlier, the Bohemian Rhapsody movie also featured a scene that took place back in 1980 at Madison Square Garden, the very night I was shooting this show in fact. I remember loving the cover of their previous album, 1979’s “Live Killers” due to all of the great photography on it, very colorful indeed.
Queen from the front row
The show started and within minutes I was in concert photographer heaven, the lighting, the stage fog and the energy were all encompassing. With all of the colorful lighting in the back ground of every shot, it was amazing composing all of my images that night. Barring any technical problems, I knew I was getting some amazing photos from my front row seat. The arena was completely sold out and the energy and love for the band came in waves from behind as I was shooting the performance.
As seen here in this article, my Queen images have become quite popular over the years. A few have been published, but for the most part many of them have been solely cherished by me and the great memories that they have provided. In fact that is basically how my concert photography career started out, I needed to take home more than a fleeting visual memory of the show, or just a t-shirt and ticket stub, I needed to document with still images for eternity.
