The ultimate Queen tribute show, Queen It's A Kinda Magic, will take fans back to the glory days of Freddie Mercury when it tours the Gold Coast in July. The show recreates Queen's 1986 World Tour concert and features all of the band's greatest hits performed live.
Director of the show, Johnny Van Grinsven, attributes its success to the attention to detail – everything from the costumes, instruments and even the lighting cues have been designed to replicate those seen in real Queen concerts.
Making the show extraordinarily authentic is the close consultation of Peter Freestone, Freddie Mercury's best friend, biographer, assistant and constant companion for the final 12 years of his life. Freestone has schooled the cast and producers on the characters and nuances of the original band in order to perfect the performance.
Giles Taylor will take on the lead role of Freddie with support from Australians, Richie Baker as Brian May on guitar and Kyle Thompson as Roger Taylor on drums, as well as South Africa's Steven Dennett as John Deacon on bass.
