QUEEN – BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY

Fri 8 March at 8:00 pm

Direct from sell-out theatres, Australia’s longest running Queen Tribute since 1993, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” starring the internationally acclaimed Thomas Crane, returns in 2024 for the brand new show, “Made In Heaven”. Prepare for an unforgettable journey as Thomas Crane takes fans through the iconic hits of Queen.

Queen, one of the most legendary rock bands of the 20th century, continues to inspire and captivate audiences worldwide. Freddie Mercury’s charisma and flamboyance are brought to life in a spectacular manner by Thomas Crane, whose uncanny impersonation of the iconic lead vocalist goes beyond vocals – he also showcases his piano-playing skills, just like the legend himself.

Prepare to be transported back in time as “Bohemian Rhapsody” recreates the visual excitement and electrifying energy of a Queen concert. Audiences can expect an unforgettable night filled with Queen’s iconic hits from the ’70s to the ’90s, including classics like “Somebody to Love,” “Another One Bites the Dust,” “Don’t Stop Me Now,” and, of course, “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

Queen’s musical diversity, multi-layered arrangements, vocal harmonies, and audience participation have made them one of the most beloved bands in rock history. The 1985 Live Aid performance was voted the best live rock performance of all time in an industry poll, solidifying Queen’s status as a live music phenomenon.

Thomas Crane and his band of incredibly talented musicians not only bring the musical genius of Queen to life on stage but also embody the flamboyance and unique personalities of Freddie and the entire band. Their performances have received rave reviews:

A fabulous night out. A group of incredibly talented musicians, who bring not only the musical genius of Queen to life on stage but embody the flamboyance and unique personalities of Freddie and the band. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the show! ”

Thomas (Freddie) is a great showman.”

My God! Freddie Mercury is alive and well. He would have been very proud of that vocal performance.” – Molly Meldrum

That’s THE BEST Freddie Mercury impersonation I have seen.” – Dannii Minogue

Don’t miss the chance to experience the magic of Queen’s music live on stage.
