While 65,000 fans waited excitedly to see Green Day perform at Londo’s Hyde Park on July 1st something quite fascinating happened. Sure, the band thought blaring Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody was a good idea while setting up, but they never imagined something this intense would be their response.
All 65,000 fans passionately broke into song and matched Freddie’s voice note for note. Most of the people in the crowd even hummed out the guitar solo! This interesting and heartfelt moment was captured from the stage. If you know this song and love it, chances are, you will be quite pleased with the outcome of this video. All of these people are complete strangers and yet this common ground is theirs.
Fans everywhere took to Twitter (Some who were there and others who were not) and had some of the following things to say:
Strangely after watching this spontaneous spectacle I have hope.
