Event:
Hear an interpretation of rock music royalty
Enjoy a selection of hits from rock music royalty, Queen within the acoustics of one of Brisbane's premier and magnificent places of worship, St John's Cathedral

Queen is an English rock band that formed in the 1970s. Led by the charismatic vocals of Freddie Mercury, they are estimated to have sold records in the range from 170 million to 300 million, making them one of the world's best-selling music artists.



While illuminated by candlelight, the program of Queen's greatest hits in Brisbane at St John's Cathedral will feature some of their most popular and recognisable hits including:

Another One Bites the Dust
We Will Rock You
Radio Gaga
Don't Stop Me Now
Crazy Little Thing Called Love
Under Pressure
I Want To Break Free
Somebody To Love
Who Wants To Live Forever
Love of My Life
Killer Queen
Bohemian Rhapsody
We Are The Champions

The songs will be performed by a string quartet over the 65-minute show. Please note that the doors open 30 minutes prior to the start time and late entry is not permitted-

Candlelight tickets for this unique performance range from $30.00. Upcoming performances are scheduled for 31 July, 21 August, 16 September 2021.

Four seating zones will be set up with:
Zone A seating (premium visibility)
Zone B seating (great visibility)
Zone C seating (good visibility)
Zone D seating (restricted visibility)

The majestic Cathedral was designed in the Gothic revival style by John Loughborough Pearson, one of England's leading church architects of the late 19th century.

So while enjoying the music, don't forget to look out for the strong columns, wooden pews and stunning lead lights of the beautiful sathedral. So stellar is the building, which underwent a restoration in recent times, that St John's Cathedral often appears as part of the Brisbane Open Houses program where buildings are open to the public to walk through and learn about its intriguing past.

Gillian,

There is a reason Queen sold so many albums! Simply they are the best and keep me company on all my drives.
