The energy of epic rock and a symphony orchestra slammed together in perfect harmony Saturday night, for the Byblos International Festival performance of "Queen Symphonic".Since its premiere in 2000, the show has toured worldwide and entertained thousands.Combining the talents of the Lebanese Philharmonic Orchestra and a 10-piece rock band, 80 musicians amassed on stage to perform a two-hour spectacle worthy of Queen's legacy.Originally the first time Queen used synthesizers in a song, the orchestra filled in for the electronic substitute, creating a full-bodied, live arrangement.The song was first released as a double A side to "Bohemian Rhapsody" in the wake of Freddie Mercury's passing, which was written as a final lament.
