Queen - It's A Kinda Magic - Comes to Singapore

PRESS RELEASE






QUEEN
IT’S A KINDA MAGIC
The much-loved, long-running tribute show and full concert experience Queen – It’s A Kinda Magic will perform exclusively at the MasterCard Theatres, Marina Bay Sands in Singapore for two nights only on 31 October and 1 November 2014. Tickets are now on sale.
The show recreates Queen’s 1986 World Tour concert, featuring over 20 of the band’s greatest hits such as‘We Will Rock You’, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘We Are the Champions’ and ‘Fat-Bottomed Girls’. Painstaking detail has been paid to all the music – the iconic voice of Mercury, the amazing guitar solos of Brian May and the ground-breaking Rock harmonies. With state-of-the-art sound and lighting and an explosive international cast, this is as close as you’ll ever get to the real thing.
In fact the show is good enough to have attracted the attention, endorsement and eventual involvement of Peter Freestone, Freddie Mercury’s former personal assistant and biographer.
“I have not seen another show in the world do it better.Their name is well deserved. They truly are a kinda magic."
- Peter Freestone, Freddie Mercury’s personal assistant and biographer
For the upcoming world tour the coveted and complex role of Freddie Mercury has been taken on by respected Canadian performer and multi-instrumentalist Giles Taylor. Taylor’s accomplished 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 incredible roll call of colleagues, Taylor counts this performance 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 Taylor.
Taylor will be joined by Richie Baker as Brian May on guitar, James Childs as John Deacon on Bass and Kyle Thompson as Roger Taylor on drums.
