    Chocolate Starfish’s Adam Thompson takes his Bohemian Rhapsody concert back out on the road in 2021

    Adam Thompson - Bohemian Rhapsody

    After postponing a swag of dates due to COVID-19 in 2020, Adam Thompson is gearing up to take his dynamic Bohemian Rhapsody show back out on the road in 2021. When it comes to magnetic front men, there are few that embody the power and passion quite like Chocolate Starfish’s Adam Thompson. He owns the stage, channels the music, and has audiences eating out the palm of his hand. Showcasing the music of his hero Freddie Mercury and Queen in Bohemian Rhapsody the blockbuster movie soundtrack, live in concert, has already seen Adam perform to sold-out houses and standing ovations.

    Chocolate Starfish are known for paying homage to great music. They’ve put on a hugely successful run of Classic Album Series concerts, with an ode to Meat Loaf’s Bat Out Of Hell (2017) and INXS’s KICK (2018), bringing the music to life with their powerhouse performances. Now, the band are stepping aside to let their electric and engaging lead singer – lover of life, singer of great songs – pay tribute to the immeasurable talent of Queen, Freddie Mercury and the acclaimed soundtrack of the smash-hit Golden Globe winning music biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

    The Bohemian Rhapsody live in concert was originally just a one-off event, planned for April 2019 in Melbourne. Adam Thompson announced the show just as the biopic landed in theatres in 2018 and the concert sold-out within minutes. Much like the movie, which is reputed as the highest selling music biopic of all time, the live concert concept left music fans demanding more dates. Due to popular demand, Adam Thompson decided to take the live show out on the road.

    Chocolate Starfish are widely reputed as one of the best live bands on the scene and Adam Thompson is revered for his showmanship. The band arrived smack bang in the middle of the grunge scene of the 1990s and carved a reputation for doing things their own way. Chocolate Starfish had six top 40 singles and two top 10 albums on the Australian charts, gold and platinum record sales and an ARIA for Most Popular Album.

    The Bohemian Rhapsody concert will feature hit after hit from Queen’s back catalogue. With tracks such as Somebody to Love, Killer Queen, Fat Bottomed Girls, We Will Rock You, Another One Bites The Dust, I Want To Break Free and Under Pressure to name a few, it will be a spectacular evening from start to finish. Adam Thompson is looking forward to exchanging that love and energy of Queen with audiences.

    Tickets for the 2021 tour of Bohemian Rhapsody are on sale now.
