Recreating Queen’s 1986 World Tour concert, the tribute extravaganza ‘Queen – It’s a Kinda Magic’ will be showing at the iZulu Theatre at Sibaya Casino from December 11 to January 10, 2016. The show feature’s all of the iconic band’s greatest hits performed live, including ‘We Will Rock You’, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘We Are the Champions’ and ‘Fat-Bottomed Girls’.
Painstaking attention has been paid to all the music – the iconic voice of Mercury, the guitar solos of May and the ground-breaking rock harmonies.
Taylor’s career has seen him travel the world over the past 13 years, performing with artists such as Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz), Gabrielle, Rick Wakeman, The Moody Blues, Martin Taylor, Richard O`Brien, Sir Jimmy Tarbuck and Dennis Waterman. Despite this impressive roll call of colleagues, Taylor counts his role in ‘Queen – It`s a Kinda Magic’ as one of the toughest musical roles he has encountered to date.
“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 those details need to be just right for a show of this magnitude. True Queen fans will appreciate the attention to detail,” says the artist.
Taylor will be joined by Australians Richie Baker as Brian May on guitar and Kyle Thompson as Roger Taylor on drums, with Johannesburg’s own Steven Dennett as John Deacon on bass.
* Performances will take place on December 11 to 13, 18 to 20 and 26 to 31; and January 1 to 3, as well as 7 to 10.
