The Show Must (And Will) Go On At This Epic Candlelight Tribute To Queen

Feeling under pressure? Want to break free from the shackles of a stressful work week? Dreaming of a candlelit evening with some fat bottomed girls and killer queens? This is the answer. Queen by Candlelight puts the beloved anthems of the band in the spotlight once more. Coming to Clapham Grand on December 19; the sensational evening will have you scouring the internet for a lemon-yellow leather jacket and dusting off your Queen vinyls.

The line up features all the favourites, including Bohemian Rhapsody, It’s A Kind Of Magic, We Are The Champions, and Who Wants To Live Forever. The powerful vocals of West End singers, combined with the talents of a five-piece rock band, have been recruited to do justice to the treasured tracks. It will only be a matter of minutes before you are singing along under your breath – the iconic melodies and lyrics of Queen popping up in your head like a visit from an old friend. If you fancy yourself a theatre aficionado you may even recognise a few familiar faces. With Simon Gordon (Heathers), Rory Taylor (Thriller Live and Rent), and Joel Harper-Jackson (Kinky Boots and Beautiful), all stepping into Mercury’s white Adidas high tops for the evening.

As if the stunning Victorian architecture – with ornate golden dragons peering from the royal boxes and an impressive domed ceiling – wasn’t enchanting enough, the Clapham Grand will also be illuminated by candlelight. The flickering glow will make for an intimate setting, highlighting only the performers on the stage and gleaming off the gilded detailing.

Doors will open at 7pm on the day, leaving you an hour to grab a drink and sink into a seat before the show kicks off at 8pm. Queen is, of course, for all the family, so all ages are more than welcome. Just don’t look at us if one of your kids somehow doesn’t know the infamous opening to Bohemian Rhapsody (it should really be in the syllabus.)

If you grab tickets to Queen by Candlelight you’ll be having such a good time come December 19. In fact, you’ll be having a ball.
