It’s going be a killer Queen holiday season: one of the biggest rock bands in music history are once again all over the world’s stage thanks to the historic success of last year’s Bohemian Rhapsody biopic. From an expansive box set celebrating Freddie Mercury’s solo work, to stunning reinterpretations of their music, a flamboyant seasonal jumper and an updated memoir, the best Queen gifts will rock every fan this Christmas.

Freddie Mercury: Never Boring box set

The first-ever comprehensive career-spanning box set of Freddie Mercury’s solo material lives up to its name. The mammoth, five-disc collection brings together his two solo works (Mr Bad Guy and Barcelona) along with a lavish book stuffed with rarely-seen visuals, quotes and an introduction from Rami Malek (who played Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody). His two solo albums have also been reissued separately on CD and vinyl.

Queen: Bohemian Rhapsody DVD

Most Queen fans can recite the Academy Award-winning biopic by heart, but the newly expanded DVD and Blu-ray release now includes the band’s complete Live Aid film performance, which was not featured in the cinema cut.

Queen: Bohemian Rhapsody (The Original Soundtrack) vinyl

Rami Malek may have won an Oscar for his career-defining role as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, but the real star of the biopic is the band’s music. The Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack features fan favourites along with the band’s show-stopping Live Aid performances of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘Radio Ga Ga’, ‘Hammer To Fall’ and ‘We Are The Champions’, which have never been released in audio form before. For the audiophile fan, the soundtrack made it to vinyl this year.

Queen + Béjart: Ballet For Life DVD

Freddie Mercury moved with the grace of a dancer, so it’s only fitting that Béjart Ballet Lausanne’s Ballet For Life paid tribute to the Queen frontman’s life and work. The DVD pairs a documentary with the full performance of the ballet at Salle Métropole, in the Swiss city of Lausanne, in June 1997.

Freddie Mercury: Freddie Mercury: A Life, In His Own Words

The closest thing that we have to a Freddie Mercury autobiography, A Life, In His Own Words collects all of Freddie’s witticisms, quotes and life lessons, meticulously edited together by Queen’s longtime archivists. Told across 20 chapters and 194 pages, the book presents the iconic Queen frontman’s life in his own voice. This latest edition is expanded to include over 8,000 additional words.

New additions include the band visiting the BoRap film set, and their recent stadium tours, along with a Lite OWL 3-D viewer.
