Three years after impressing Cape Town audiences with the ultimate Queen tribute performance in 2015, Queen: It’s a Kinda Magic returns to The Mother City for a special one-night-only performance at the majestic Grand Arena at GrandWest Casino on the 12th of January 2019.
Showcasing an arena rock spectacular with the most sensational tribute ever staged, Queen: It’s a Kinda Magic is set to recreate Queen’s historically famous 1986 World Tour concert on stage in SA.
If you’re wanting to kick off 2019 with a bang, this show gives ultimate rock fan the chance to go “Ga Ga” by singing and dancing along to some of the most classic rock hits of our generation.
Relive the magic of ‘We Will Rock You’, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘We Are the Champions’ and ‘Fat-Bottomed Girls’ and more, with this two-hour live theatrical rock experience.
The show’s continued global success is attributed to the attention-to-detail in this mind-blowing and energetic stage show, which includes the costumes, instruments and lighting cues which have been designed to replicate those seen in real Queen concerts.
Multi-talented English musician, Giles Taylor, takes on the iconic role of Freddie Mercury and is the only tribute performer in the world who sings and plays both piano and guitar live on stage.
“It’s a major thrill for us to bring the show back to Cape Town. Freddie was known for his powerful voice and vocal range and had a very distinct character in general, so emulating him is quite a challenge, but the show pays so much attention to detail and I’m sure the True Queen fans will appreciate this live rock experience,” says Taylor.
Supporting Taylor on stage throughout this two-hour rock experience are South Africa’s very own Steven Dennett as John Deacon on bass guitar, Australians Richie Baker, as Brian May on guitar, and Kyle Thompson, as Roger Taylor on drums.
Tickets for this spectacular show can also be purchased via Computicket or via Checkers and Shoprite retail stores, countrywide, and are priced between R120 and R380 each.
