It's a statue. And at least with the band name non democratic systems are praised. Not a must see at all.

A great place to stop by if you are a lover of Queen. I am sure this place gets a lot of attention during his birthday, and also his final day. The man has made a huge impact on the world, and it can be seen by all this fans. Swing by the old studio to get a feel for how things were done back then. Located inside the casino now.
It's a statue alright! Interestingly enough, I was able to see it during a weekend celebration leading to his birthday, so many people were around. Unfortunately, the first and best set of pics (I took) were not backed up in my photos, so I had my husband text me one, and we went back to take some more. Nothing beat the evening shots I had the first time though.
