Queen: It's a Kinda Magic!

Friday, Aug. 1

by

Queen's 1986 Magic Tour, in support of A Kind of Magic, would be frontman Freddie Mercury's swan song--he was diagnosed with AIDS in 1987 and passed away in 1991. The tour was the band's biggest: Queen logged 26 concerts, which were seen by more than 1 million people. From Budapest to London to Zurich, audiences were blown away by the music, the light show and Mercury's unrivaled voice and showmanship.

Even though the shows can never be repeated, It's a Kinda Magic, featuring "respected Canadian performer and multi-instrumentalist Giles Taylor," re-creates the tour for 21st century audiences with 20 of Queen's biggest hits, like "Bohemian Rhapsody," "We Are the Champions" and "We Will Rock You."

We promise, it'll be dynamite with a laser beam.
