Freddie Mercury has been long gone, but his spirit will live on forever. In the spirit of Christmas, it’s only appropriate that we honor one of the cheeriest people ever to walk the face of the earth! We miss Freddie on days like today, but we’ve dug up something that will make it feel like he is physically with us!
Back in 1975, Queen performed in Hammersmith at the Oden. The performance was televised and happened to be around Christmas time. During the performance, Freddie decided to celebrate by raising a glass of wine and toasting the season!
Freddie raised his glass and told the audience, “Right now Queen would like to drink a special Christmas toast! To everybody here and all of the viewers: Cheers!”
So there you have it! Freddie raising a glass to you on Christmas! Now you can play this at your family’s dinner tonight, and receive a special message from Freddie himself! Following the toast, the band goes into their song “Keep Yourself Alive,” which is an appropriate song to play on this day! Enjoy the video down below!
