Freddie Mercury’s valuable memorabilia to be auctioned

London, Jun 3 (Prensa Latina) A series of objects that belonged to musical legend Freddie Mercury and that nowadays have acquired a big value, manuscripts that unravel the enigmas of his popular Bohemian Rhapsody, will be auctioned.

According to Sotheby’s, these items will be exhibited in New York, Los Angeles and Hong Kong, as part of Freddie Mercury: A World of His Own tour, and they will be auctioned in London from August 4 to September 11, 2023.

The value of the manuscripts ranges from 1 to 1.5 million dollars, while the complete catalog consisting of 1,500 objects amounts to 7.2 million dollars.

Gabriel Heaton, a specialist in manuscripts, said that these documents show a fascinating immersion that reveals the way in which the artist developed and composed his songs, and recall his musical complexity and sophistication.

Among the writings is a 15-page draft that brings to light details about his iconic tune Bohemian Rhapsody, as well as others that group together data from songs with equal transcendence such as Don’t Stop Me Now, Somebody to Love and We Are The Champions.

Thanks to his friend Mary Austin, the world idol’s collection was preserved after his death in 1991, and will be on display for the enjoyment of the public and those who can take home a memento of one of the greatest rock exponents.
