For most of the world, from the first beat of a Queen song nostalgia takes hold, instinct takes over and voices start belting out the lyrics we know and love – ‘We will we will rock you’, ‘We are the champions (no time for losers)’, ‘All we hear is radio ga ga radio goo goo’… and possibly the greatest arena rock song of all time, ‘Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?’ Bohemian Rhapsody.
These and more ultimate sing-along classics will be taking to the giant screen in the comfort of Montecasino’s Teatro for a four-show ‘raise the roof’ Bohemian Rhapsody Sing-Along Experience on the 28th, 29th and 30th of June. Based on the life Freddie Mercury, the flamboyant lead singer of British rock band Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody won more awards than any other film in this year’s Academy Awards (including Best Motion Picture of the Year and Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role), and the Sing-Along Experience takes this blockbuster experience to the next level, delivering an amazing sing-out-loud experience, with concert quality sound.
Sing-alongers are also encouraged to dress up as their best-loved rock star, squeeze on their tight pants, and be the star of the show, with great prizes and giveaways for the best dressed and favourite audience members. To add to the excitement, a live band will perform on stage before the screening to help warm up your vocal cords and get your best singing voice on.
The Sing-Along Experience is the only movie screening where you are encouraged to make noise, lots of it, even if your family insist you only sing in the shower!
It’s a not-to-be-missed event for all rock fans – and seats are limited and unreserved so book early and then arrive early to secure your seats.
Mike Page, Operations Director and Complex GM of Montecasino, says, “Queen, Freddie Mercury, and Bohemian Rhapsody were a worldwide phenomenon and the movie reminded us how big their influence in our lives is still today. We know them and their music and the Montecasino Bohemian Rhapsody Sing-Along Experience will deliver an unforgettable event that’s captured perfectly in Queen’s famous lyrics: ‘So don’t stop me now, don’t stop me, ‘Cause I’m having a good time, having a good time…’.”
Shows are on Friday 28 June at 8 pm, Saturday 29 June at 3 pm and 8 pm, and Sunday 30 June at 3 pm. Limited tickets are available through www.quicket.co.za.
