IT'S TIME TO ROCK!
After capturing the hearts of over 250,000 Queen fans and conquering stages across the globe, Queen -- Its A Kinda Magic returns to Australia ready to rock!
Since it's 2007 Australian tour, the production has electrified audiences in South Africa, France, Spain, Portugal, Turkey, Germany, Dubai, Canada, United States, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines.
In 2009, interest in Queen has never been higher, with Queen upstaging The Beatles as the "greatest British band of all time" (BBC Radio 2 poll, 2007). Queen -- Its A Kinda Magic takes audiences back in time to re-live the energy, excitement and theatrics of Freddie Mercury and the greatest ROCK band in the world, QUEEN!
With 21st century sound and lighting, and a cast that takes magnetism to new heights, this theatrical attraction creates the 1986 world tour of Freddie Mercury and Queen, taking audiences back in time to experience the passion of Freddie Mercury, the amazing guitar solos of Brian May, the thundering rhythms of Roger Taylor and all those unbelievable Queen harmonies.
Amid rave international reviews, and 20 years since Freddie Mercury and Queens last live performance together, it was written:
"imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and if the legendary Freddie Mercury was with us today, we are sure he'd agree that the outstanding Queen -- Its A Kinda Magic... was a worthy homage"
Masala, DUBAI, 2006
The stage performance and presence of Mercury in this production is so close to the real thing that Freddie's trusted personal assistant, confidante and biographer Peter Freestone has given it his personal thumbs up:
The thrill, the excitement, the personality and theatrical experience that was Freddie live! 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, 2005
Queen -- Its A Kinda Magic features over 20 original Queen hits including We Will Rock You, Bohemian Rhapsody, Fat Bottom Girls, We Are the Champions and many more.
"Queen It's a Kinda Magic's portrayal of Freddie Mercury and Queen was flawless... With a standing ovation to a much loved classic "Bohemian Rhapsody" the crowd, many having a feeling of deja vu of days gone by, left feeling as though they had been 'mercurized'!"
Toronto Sun, CANADA, Sept 2006
If you have not seen this theatrical production, based on the sellout 1986 Queen World Tour, then you haven't completed your "Queenology". Bringing back to the rock stage all the electric energy, vibrant costumes and homemade sound that is Queen, including the iconic "Freddie Prance" in a manner that will transport even the hardest critic back to a time when Queen ruled the rock circuit.
"The fact it has nearly sold out every show on its North American tour speaks volumes about its caliber of accuracy and the dedication of Queen fans worldwide"
Seattle Post Intelligencer, US, Sept 2005

Masala, DUBAI, 2006
This theatrical production of designers, cast, crew and technicians is as close as you'll ever get to the real thing. The magic and pulse that Queen -- Its A Kinda Magic delivers to its audiences has created a new buzz and even newer fans of the original band who weren't around for the 1986 Queen World Tour.
