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.
