There’s a winter’s tale about a devout Queen fan who was feeling under pressure from a heavy work week so they called upon their fellow killer queens and good old-fashioned lover boys for a much-needed night out, where they could escape the bitter chill of the weather and forget their worries for one magical candlelit evening. Sound tempting? Bringing the legendary sounds of the beloved British rock band to Manchester, Queen By Candlelight is a thrilling new theatre experience, combining hit tracks with some of the country’s best West End vocalists.
Taking place at The Monastery, fans of the iconic band will be able to sing-a-long to some of Queen’s biggest hits – all while taking in the beautiful candlelit surrounds. Not only that, but the cast is impressive, too, with the likes of Simon Gordon (Bat Out of Hell), Rory Taylor (Thriller Live) and Joel-Harper Jackson (Kinky Boots) previously starring in the special event.
The cast will be accompanied by a fantastic five-piece rock band who will help bring the powerful music and iconic songs to life once more. It is perfect incentive to get out of the house on a frosty moonlit night and sink into seats in the warm, striking interiors of one of Manchester’s architectural gems.
Returning on February 19 2022, guests will be able to enjoy the mesmerising performances from the comfort of their socially distant area. The early summer wave of tickets sold out super fast this year, and there’s no doubt they will again this winter so make sure you snap up yours now because they’ll soon be disappearing faster than you can say “Don’t stop me now“.
