RHAPSODY IN THE SKY / QUEEN SUPER FIREWORKS

RHAPSODY IN THE SKY / QUEEN SUPER FIREWORKS

WHAT: RHAPSODY IN THE SKY / QUEEN SUPER FIREWORKS 2019
WHY: FIREWORKS AND ROCK MUSIC
WHEN: DATES THROUGHOUT NOVEMBER 2019
WHERE: JAPAN
COST: TICKETED EVENT

Japan is already known to put on some of the most epic firework displays throughout the summer months but in November they will go one step further with an event that will be the first of its kind in Japan. Queen super fireworks, or ‘yozora no rhapsody’, will be a tribute to a legend of the British music industry; that’s right, you guessed it is the fantastic Queen.

Japan has one of the most loyal Queen fan bases in the World and they have been supporting them ever since the band first toured over there in 1975. Queen and Adam Lambert are due to tour there in 2020 and the tickets for the show were so popular that they sold out in seconds. When the band released the film Bohemian Rhapsody, once again the sales of the tickets were stratospheric.

In this instance, the loyal fans will now reach the skies throughout Japan with three events in November; full of music and massive fireworks displays.

Dates & Venues

Sunday 3rd November – Maishima Sports Island (Osaka)

Saturday 16th November – Urayasushi Total Park (Chiba)

Saturday 30th November – Miyazaki Rink Park (Miyazaki)

Officially approved by Queen themselves, the super fireworks event will light up the skies in a blaze of light and effect as the fireworks are perfectly synchronised to some of the greatest hits such as “Somebody to love”, “We will rock you” and the film’s soundtrack the unparalleled “Bohemian Rhapsody”. The director of the display is Ryo Oro, regarded to be one of Japan's experts in pyrotechnics and specialist in the programming of pyro musicals. One of the events he is most known for was the 2019 Koyoto Geijutsu Hanabi (Artistic fireworks) commemorating Emperor Naruhito’s accession to the throne.

Programme

15:00 – opening / food court opening

18:30 – fireworks start

  • Part 1: Art fireworks course
  • Part 2: Great Sky Art – where fireworks and music are synchronised together

19:30 – Ending

This will be a ticketed event and is also expected to be very popular so grab a ticket while you can, tickets start from the early bird discount 6,480yen (£51) and the standard seating tickets cost 7,560yen (£60).

The night promises to be an over the top extravaganza of rock music, just like the band. The event will last over an hour long and will be packed with non-stop musical entertainment and over 1,300 fireworks will be released into the night sky, perfectly choreographed to the rhythm, melody, musical instrument, and vocals and is not to be missed. As a fan of both fireworks and Queen, this will be something that I will be keeping an eye on myself.
