Queen: The Studio Experience Montreux


Marking the 40th anniversary of the release of their first single and album, a new Queen exhibition, Queen: The Studio Experience Montreux, is currently offering a rare insight into one of the most significant periods of their recording years. The Mountain Studios sessions saw Queen at their most demanding—both of themselves and of those who worked around them. Covering Queen’s sessions in Swiss based Montreux Mountain Studios, where they regularly recorded between 1978-1995 and where they created the bulk of tracks for six of their most popular albums, the exhibition offers the opportunity to experience the environment and surroundings in which the band created so many classic tracks. The exhibition, which is under the auspices of the Mercury Phoenix Trust, particularly highlights Freddie Mercury’s personal ties to Montreux and the studio where in his final months Freddie would spend as much time as his health would allow, recording his very last vocal tracks. Dedicated to Freddie, the exhibition is being staged by the Mercury Phoenix Trust, the HIV AIDS charity set up in Freddie’s name to fight HIV AIDS worldwide.
