Classic Albums Live Performs Queen – A Night at the Opera


queen’s ‘a night at the opera’ was a
game changer for rock ’n’ roll
if you grew up in the 70s, this album
was everywhere
all of a sudden, long haired rockers were
singing along to operatic songs
with soaring arrangements
a far cry from foghat

queen became one of the world’s greatest
bands by working hard
they toured endlessly and in the studio –
they strived for perfection
and that’s our challenge
how do you learn perfection?
answer: by working hard

nick walsh rallied to sing this album
originally a rock singer, nick found his
theatre vibe singing the david bowie,
ziggy stardust album
now he’s immersed in the brilliance and
effortlessness of freddie mercury’s voice
alongside the vocals comes the challenge
of brian may’s overdubbed guitar sound
we’ve got a small army of guitarists to
cover the flash and fun

classic albums live loves a good challenge
queen provides just that.
we’re all familiar with “bohemian rhapsody”
and “you’re my best friend”
but it’s the deep tracks like “prophet song”
and “love of my life” that reveal
a profound depth of songwriting
we’re ready
