Mt Smart Stadium to become a drive-in theatre for Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" movie

Rock News 19/12/2019

This is pretty cool.

Auckland's Mt Smart Stadium, home of the Warriors and live gigs throughout the year, is set to become a special drive-in movie theatre on 29 January for a special screening of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody - just nine days before  Queen + Adam Lambert arrive with The Rhapsody Tour at the same venue.

For the first time ever, fans will be able to drive their cars on to the turf to watch the four-time Oscar-winning movie on the gigantic 212m2 screen, which usually delivers high-definition live action and replays during Warriors games. Spaces will be available for 200 cars, with a limit of four people per car.

To get that classic drive-in experience, a unique FM radio station will be created so that fans can tune in on their car radios.

No car, no problem. Tickets are also available to grab a seat on the grass. Fans will be able to bring a bean bag, low seat or picnic blanket and sit back, relax and watch Rami Malek bring Freddie Mercury to life in one of the most successful music films of all time.

Tickets go on sale 12pm tomorrow (Friday 20 December) via Ticketmaster with strictly limited spaces - so get in quick.

Tickets are $70 per vehicle with a limit of 4 people per vehicle and $20 per person for grass seating.

THE NITTY GRITTY DETAILS

Vehicle Tickets:

Each vehicle ticket includes popcorn and soft drinks for two people. There is a 4-person limit per vehicle permitted and larger vehicles will be parked at the rear of the field. Vehicles parked at the rear may be reversed in, boots will need to be tied down as not to obstruct view of those behind.

Vehicle tickets are strictly limited and will sell out.

Field Tickets:

Prefer to be on the field? We’ve got you covered. You can bring your own bean bag, low seat or picnic blanket and grab a great spot on the grass.

About the film:

Bohemian Rhapsody is an enthralling celebration of Queen, their music, and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and convention to become one of history’s most beloved entertainers. Following Queen’s meteoric rise, their revolutionary sound and Freddie’s solo career, the film also chronicles the band’s reunion, and one of the greatest performances in rock history.
