To celebrate the fans that made Bohemian Rhapsody the number one music biopic of all-time, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment invites them to join the ultimate Queen celebration at events across the country, in their own homes and on social media.

Fans in New York City (January 25), Austin (January 30), Las Vegas (February 5) and Los Angeles (February 12) will have a chance to hop on board the double-decker Rock Like Queen Tour Bus and sing-along to their favorite Queen songs. Fans can sign up for a spot via the Rock Like Queen Tour registration site.

The Rock Like Queen Tour will culminate in what the organizers describe as “the ultimate Queen fan experience” at the legendary Whisky A-Go-Go on the famed Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. This BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY super-fan celebration will include musical tributes to Freddie Mercury and Queen, a performance by Queen Extravaganza and more. Free tickets are available online on a first come, first served basis here.

On Jan. 6, the film won a Golden Globe for Best Picture – Drama and Rami Malek earned Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama for his role as Mercury. On Jan. 9, the film also received seven British Academy (BAFTA) nominations including Outstanding British Film and Leading Actor. The awards take place on Feb. 10.

Malek earned a Screen Actors Guild nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role. The cast received a nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. The winners will be announced on Jan. 27, during the live simulcast on TNT and TBS.

The Academy Award nominations will be revealed Jan. 22.

For fans in the U.S. who can’t make the Rock Like Queen Tour or the Los Angeles event, they can join the fun at home via a new Amazon Alexa skill that will enable fans to sing “Ay-Oh” with Freddie Mercury when they call out “Alexa, play Ay-Oh live!” Mercury will sing “Ay-Oh” with you just like Queen’s audience did during the band’s iconic Live Aid 1985 performance. U.S. fans can activate the skill via Amazon Alexa devices from January 22 through March 31.

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment invites fans around the world to show your best “Stomp, Stop, Clap” to become a part of the Bohemian Rhapsody family. A worldwide $100,000 donation will be made to the Mercury Phoenix Trust founded by Brian May and Roger Taylor in memory of Queen’s iconic lead singer Freddie Mercury.

To join #StompforQueen fans can re-share the just released video found on Bohemian Rhapsody official channels (Facebook/Instagram @bohemianrhapsodymovie & Twitter @BoRhapMovie) or show their own “Stomp, Stomp, Clap” on any social platform. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment may include their video in a tribute video to the legendary singer launching in February.

Bohemian Rhapsody arrives on Digital and Movies Anywhere Jan. 22 and 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™ and DVD Feb. 12. This edition features the complete “Live Aid” movie performance featuring two never-before-seen songs (“Crazy Little Thing Called Love” and “We Will Rock You”) packed into a 22-minute segment recreating the original event. In addition, on Blu-ray and Digital, fans will get a look behind the making-of the film including interviews with Queen, the cast and creative team.
