We are the stamp-ions!
Queen will be the third British music group ever to be honored with a set of stamps by U.K. postal agency The Royal Mail. They are following The Beatles and Pink Floyd. Thirteen stamps celebrating the contributions of the legendary band will go on sale to the general public in the U.K. on July 9.
Eight of the stamps will depict Queen album covers: 1974’s “Queen II” and “Sheer Heart Attack,” 1975’s “A Night at the Opera,” 1977’s “News of the World,” 1980’s “The Game,” 1981’s “Greatest Hits,” 1984’s “The Works and 1991’s Innuendo.”
Four other stamps will commemorate memorable concerts that the band played: Three London shows — Wembley Stadium in 1986, Hyde Park in 1976 and the Hammersmith Odeon in 1975 — and one in Budapest, Hungary, in 1986.
One stamp will feature the famous 1974 pic of the group taken at its first-ever photo shoot.
