The king of Queen tribute bands leaves audiences spellbound in Queen: It's a Kinda Magic. Experience the flawless rock harmonies, soaring guitar solos and -- thanks to lead singer Giles Taylor -- the energy of Freddie Mercury in one unforgettable performance. Taylor's recreation of Mercury is so complete that Mercury's real-life personal assistant and biographer, Peter Freestone, has gushed, "I have not seen another show in the world do it better." Delivered with 21st-century sound and lighting, this show transports you back to Queen's legendary 1986 Magic Tour, featuring over 20 pulse-raising renditions of hits that include "We Will Rock You," "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Fat Bottomed Girls," "Under Pressure" and "We Are the Champions."
