Queen – It’s A Kinda Magic will present fans with the opportunity to re-live Queen as the band was in its classic days. This stunning re-creation of the 1986 ‘We Will Rock You’ tour features Giles Taylor as Freddie Mercury at his charismatic best.
Taylor landed the coveted role of Freddie Mercury following extensive worldwide auditions – Showtime Australia spent 18 months searching for the right person. The competition was fierce but Taylor’s natural talent as a pianist and his three-and-a-half octave vocal range saw him beat many other sensational candidates. In Taylor they found someone who not only has an incredible voice, is an accomplished pianist and looks the part – he also has the charisma and stage presence to make audiences really feel like they are watching Freddie Mercury.
Freddie Mercury’s former personal assistant of 12 years and biographer, Peter Freestone, was so impressed with Queen – It’s A Kinda Magic that he has not only endorsed the show but he now travels with it, acting as a consultant and meeting fans when his schedule allows. Freestone only spent three weeks away from Mercury in 12 years so there are few people more equipped to help Taylor fine tune and finesse his performance.
