The Ultimate Queen Celebration (Christchurch)
August 26, 2018 @ 7:00 pm
Get ready to rock with Marc Martel, the greatest Freddie Mercury voice on the planet.
It’s one night only. It’s the ultimate Queen celebration.
“That voice. You listen, close your eyes and you think it’s Freddie. It’s uncanny.” – Roger Taylor, Queen
No stranger to fronting Queen projects, Marc Martel was handpicked by Roger Taylor and Brian May to front their official Queen tribute in 2012.
Martel launched his own The Ultimate Queen Celebration project in March 2017.
“I get a little more artistic freedom in this show,” Martel said. “I feel like I have a good feel for how Freddie interpreted the music. Later in life, he branched out and did his own things, a few covers and some opera. I’ll pick a couple of songs that I wish Freddie recorded in his lifetime and perform them along with the songs that these legendary artists made famous including “Radio Gaga”, “Tie Your Mother Down”, “Fat Bottomed Girls”, “Killer Queen”, “Somebody to Love”, “Bohemian Rhapsody” and many more.
An absolute must for Queen fans!
