Last Saturday, 9th of Feb, Queen Forever played to a sell out crowd of 2,400 mad Queen fans at The Crown Theatre in Perth. It was a massive evening of Queen hits with a lot of crowd involvement and some very special moments.
No doubt encouraged & inspired by the international smash hit movie, Bohemian Rhapsody, which has dominated not only the box office but run away with awards across the globe, Queen Forever were ON FIRE!!!
The band was inundated on social media with feedback immediately after the show with some fans saying it was the best show they’d ever seen!
“One of, if not the best shows ever seen at Crown Theatre Perth. Last night will go on as a show for the ages. Bloody Brilliant.” Peter Hammond
“Awesome show, I’ve been to about 10 different shows in the last 12 months, and this was the best. I loved it ☆☆☆☆☆ Well done and thank you for a great night!” Chasleigh Houston
“A big thank you from Bindi, awesome show, much more entertaining than Adam Lambert 😄” Paris Jordan

“I’ve seen many musicals/concerts and this is by far, one of the best!
You all worked so hard to make it such a memorable show, had the whole audience involved. Can’t believe the similarity to Freddie Mercury!” Rose Montisci
“Fantastic show at Crown Perth. Thank you guys for making a young boys’ dream come true!” Marie Van Straten
“Saw tonight in Perth. Amazing musicians and Freddie – fantastic and energetic!! Brilliant show 🙌🏼🙌🏼” Zena Armstead
“What a night it was spectacular to say the least. Thank you for showing my daughter a glimpse of Freddie and Queen as they will live on forever.” Julie Normington
“Awesome night thanks guys. Reminiscing and singing all my favourite songs. Freddie would be giving you all a big kiss.” Wendy Anne
Undoubtedly the highlight of the evening was when Perth youngster, 9 year old Jayden Van Helsdingen joined Gareth Hill (Freddie) on stage and helped him sing Don’t Stop Me Now. He nearly stole the show, drawing huge cheers from the heaving crowd, reportedly posing for photos with fans at half time!
Gareth as Freddie always loves to get the crowd involved and this show was no exception! There were a bevy of Fat Bottomed Girls who stormed the stage at his invitation which made for a hilarious rendition of the classic song!
Scott Hotpants as Brian May shredded his way through both sets, filling the huge auditorium with echoes of the unmistakable Brian sound using his Red Special replicas and 9 (yes, 9!) Vox AC30’s creating a literal “wall of amps”!! Not since the actual Queen visited Perth were there so many AC30’s on one stage!
