Stormtrooper in Stilettos

Is the name of the Queen exhibition currently on at the Truman Brewery off Brick Lane in London. I first heard about this when I recieved an email from As a massive Queen fan I immediately started plotting how to get there, where to stay etc. Fortunately my boyfriend's sister lives in London and we were long overdue a visit, so it enabled us to do everything.

The exhibition focuses on the first 5 albums that the band released, charting the stories behind the music and some of their greatest achievements, as well as displaying some treasures from the time. There are lots of TV screens with clips of interviews, and you can listen to the songs at appropriate points around the displays. These are my favourite Queen albums, so it was just that little bit more wonderful!

Some of the footage on the screens was of live gigs from various places and times and just watching it took my breath away. My favourite bit was catching a clip of 39 being performed - it is one of my favourite Queen songs for its sheer simplicity, and Freddie aside, Roger Taylor is one of my musical idols.

The slight maniacal grin shows you how pleased I was to be there!!

If you can make it to the Truman Brewery between Commercial Street (Spitalfields Market) and Brick Lane before the exhibition closes on March 12th then I heartily recommend that you go!
