Last year, Rovio paid tribute to Freddie Mercury by creating a video featuring one of their Angry Birds characters as the Queen frontman as part of the annual "Freddie for a Day" celebration.

In 1992 the surviving members of Queen invited friends and fellow musicians to pay tribute to the late Freddie Mercury. The concert included performances from over a dozen top rock and pop artists of the day, from David Bowie to Guns N' Roses to Metallica and Def Leppard. Later this summer 34 different performances from that night will be available on 'The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert: The Definitive Edition' DVD and Blu-Ray.
