A statue in Montreux, Switzerland (by sculptor Irena Sedlecka) was erected as a tribute to Freddie Mercury. It stands 3 metres high and overlooks Lake Geneva. It was unveiled on November 25, 1996 by Freddie’s father and Montserrat Caballé. Beginning in 2003, fans from around the world gather in Switzerland annually to pay tribute to the singer as part of the “Freddie Mercury Montreux Memorial Day” on the first weekend of September and the Bearpark And Esh Colliery Band played at the Freddie Mercury statue on June 1, 2010.
