Queen: It’s A Kinda Magic!
Friday June 8, 2018. The show recreates Queen’s 1986 World Tour concert and features two hours of the band’s greatest hits performed live, including We Will Rock You, Bohemian Rhapsody, We Are the Champions, Bicycle, Somebody to Love and Fat-Bottomed Girls. Making Queen: It’s A Kinda Magic extraordinarily authentic is the involvement of Peter Freestone, Freddie Mercury’s best friend, biographer, personal assistant and constant companion for the final 12 years of his life. As Production Consultant, Freestone has schooled the cast and producers on the characters and nuances of the original band in order to perfect the performance. Giles Taylor who steps on stage as Freddie Mercury is the only ‘Freddie’ impersonator in the world who sings and plays both piano and guitar live on stage. Taylor is also widely-praised for the trademark Mercury wit and cheekiness that he brings to life in the show. Supporting Taylor in this mammoth stage production – each with jaw-dropping solos that show off their unassumingly good musicianship – are Australians Richie Baker as Brian May on guitar and Kyle Thompson as Roger Taylor on drums, with South African Steven Dennett as John Deacon on bass.
