RECREATION OF QUEEN
QUEEN – It’s A Kinda Magic will present fans with the opportunity to re-live Queen in their heyday with a re-creation of the 1986 We Will Rock You tour, featuring Giles Taylor as Freddie Mercury.
Taylor said taking on the role of iconic Mercury was not only an honour but also a continual challenge.
“Australians are renowned for their appreciation of classic rock music and having performed in Australia before, I know how receptive and appreciative the audience can be,” he said.
“Queen – It’s A Kinda Magic has been embraced by audiences worldwide and now it’s Australia’s turn.”
The concert experience, which will include more than 20 Queen songs, so impressed Mercury’s former personal assistant of 12 years, Peter Freestone, that he now travels with the show as a consultant.
“Giles has got Freddie under his skin now and is mesmerising the crowd,” Freestone said.
