When you think of band merchandise, the first band you likely think of is KISS (and understandably so), but many bands have upped their merch game as of late, and one band that has stood out, in particular, is Queen.
Brian May, who celebrates his 70th birthday today (July 19), has been front and center in these efforts, and the past couple of years has seen a ton of new items, reissues and more come from the Queen camp. Here are some of our favorites:
Monopoly: Queen Edition
While the Queen-themed version of the classic board game is far from the first branded edition, it’s definitely one of the most unique in terms of the property spaces and player tokens.
Queen In 3-D
If there’s one thing May loves, it’s gadgets, and the new photobook Queen In 3-D, equiped with special 3-D glasses, is the type of creative item that brings a truly one-of-a-kind experience.
Queen Slip Mat
Is there a better way to jazz up your turntable than with a Queen slip mat? And perhaps with a slip mat of the Jazz album art? Didn’t think so!
We want all of the t-shirts. ALL…OF…THEM!
Queen Tea Pot, Cups & Saucers Set
