Queen, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, Live at Rock Montreal, 1981
April 6, 2015. Late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury will be honoured with a prestigious blue plaque at his childhood home in London. The sign will be placed as a tribute to the star, who passed away aged 45 in 1991, and will be visible outside the terrace house in Feltham, west London, where Mercury lived from 1964 to 1968 after arriving from Zanzibar with his parents.
A spokesman for the blue plaque panel confirms the news to Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper, saying, “We have received an application for a blue plaque to Freddie Mercury which has been approved.”
Blue plaques are placed by officials from The Heritage Foundation to mark significant historical sites across the UK.
