An official book charting Queen (opens in new tab)’s live performances is to be released later this year.
Queen: The Neal Preston Photographs will be published by Reel Art Press in October and will feature more than 300 images by the acclaimed photographer, along with text from guitarist Brian May (opens in new tab) and drummer Roger Taylor (opens in new tab).
Preston began working with Queen in the mid-70s as the band’s official tour photographer and was with the group for many of their most famous shows, including Live Aid (opens in new tab) in 1985 and Queen’s last tour with Freddie Mercury (opens in new tab) in 1986.
A statement on Queen: The Neal Preston Photographs reads: “It is the first time Preston and Queen have collated this work in one volume: glimpses of life backstage, live performances, post-performance highs and lows, and outtakes – many of which have never been seen before – are accompanied by memories and anecdotes from Queen guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor.

Queen: The Neal Preston Photographs is now available to pre-order through the Reel Art Press website.
