Queen opening night at Joburg Civic Theatre was definitely a kind of magic!!!
A world class performance by Giles Taylor (in the role of Freddie Mercury) had everyone singing and dancing along to Fat Bottom Girls, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, We Are the Champions and of course Bohemian Rhapsody among some other favourites.
Giles Taylor had some big shoes to fill but somehow managed to pull it off and had everyone (especially the ladies) screaming for more...
The supporting acts on guitar and drums only enhanced the magical evening with their outstanding instrumental skills.
All in all it was a fabulous evening... and with a fabulous evening comes a fabulous outfit.
A flairy, feminine dress accompanied by a waist belt from Forever New and some Carrie Bradshaw heels and the night was complete.
Dress & Belt: Forever New - Blue Hangisi Heels: Manolo Blahnik
I won't be a rock star. I will be a legend.
I'm just a musical prostitute, my dear.
I always knew I was a star And now, the rest of the world seems to agree with me.
The reason we're successful, darling? My overall charisma, of course.
What will I be doing in twenty years' time? I'll be dead, darling! Are you crazy?
Who wants to live forever?
I'm very emotional; I think I may go mad in several years' time.
When I'm dead, I want to be remembered as a musician of some worth and substance.
I want to lead the Victorian life, surrounded by exquisite clutter.
I like to be surrounded by splendid things.
- Freddie Mercury
