The passion and excitement of Freddie Mercury, the amazing guitar solos of Brian May and all those unbelievable harmonies from the whole band, the best of the 1970's- 80's rock era, taking audiences back in time.
“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
QUEEN – It’s A Kinda Magic transcends reality and make-believe: Queen songs are anthems, the band is legendary and Freddie Mercury was an rock’s undisputed icon! 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 – It’s 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.
Presenting 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 features Craig Pesco as Freddie Mercury, where his stage performance and the band in the show are so close to the real thing that they have been given unanimously thumbs up by critics and audiences.

Peter Anderson, Director of Showtime, the show’s promoter and producer said, “We are absolutely delighted to bring QUEEN - It's A Kinda Magic back to Hong Kong. I believe that Queen fans and rock lovers will have a great night with the Queen’s classic hits.
