THE first ever tribute act to rock legends Queen will be coming to Boston’s Blackfriars Theatre for the first time on Saturday.

Magic: A Kind of Queen will be performing all the greatest hits of the 70’s band and some that audiences may not have heard in a while from 7.30pm.

Magic pride themselves on performing completely live with five vocals led by Roger Brown, along with two guitars, a bass, drums, piano and keyboard.

The group were formed in 1974, just as Queen were reaching the height of their popularity.

They originally formed as a harmony group performing covers of The Beach Boys, Four Seasons and Electric Light Orchestra before introducing the music of Freddie Mercury and Queen into their repertoire.

They performed Bohemian Rhapsody live in their stage show just as it reached No 1 in the UK charts.

The group said it does not emulate Queen visually, but boasts being able to create the excitement of the original’s live show.

For the past 25 years, the band has headlined concerts in Gorky Park, Moscow, and played venues in Hong Kong, America, the Middle East and Europe – performing twice at the London Palladium.

They claim this has given them the background to deliver a world class show to remember.

Tickets £15.50.
