Day 26: Queen of the big screen

The latest light show on the Fremont Street Experience canopy is Queen.

It’s made up of 3 songs: Will Will Rock You, We Are The Champions, and then a bit more We Will Rock You for good measure.

There are lots of pictures of the band swirling overhead and various different clips of Freddie Mercury singing but all synchronized to the music at the same time, which is pretty effective.

At one point a Union Jack morphs into the Stars and Stripes as lots of pictures of (presumably) "champions" float over the top.  Maybe I always catch the wrong shows, but they usually seem to manage to work something schmaltzy like this in.

Of course, you can’t appreciate the whole thing in a video because the screen is just too bloody big, but one version I found on YouTube has a damn good go with two cameras edited together split screen style so you can see the entire canopy.

I only took a few pictures myself.
