Watch Airport Staff Perform Queen’s ‘I Want to Break Free’

September 9, 2018

Staff at England’s Heathrow Airport took part in a choreographed performance of the Queen classic “I Want to Break Free” to mark what would have been Freddie Mercury’s 72nd birthday this week.

It's also been around 50 years since the late singer worked as a baggage handler at the complex.

The video was made with the assistance of British Airways and involved the staff working with TV choreographer Lyndon Lloyd for more than two weeks. It was presented as part of the “Freddie for a Day” celebrations. It follows the performance of a medley of Queen tracks by the Ohio State Marching Band at a college football game last weekend, which guitarist Brian May described as “truly amazing.”
