It’s no exaggeration to say that the British rock band queen experienced one of the greatest moments of his career in Brazil, when his manager Freddie Mercury led a choir of 300,000 at Rock In Rio in 1985 to the sound of the ballad Love of my life. That’s why the Canadian singer Marc Martel knows the importance of presenting, accompanied by a group of five musicians, the show The Ultimate Queen Celebration here.
“I am ready for this moment! You can come ! », says Martel to the Stadium. “Brazilians’ passion for live music is legendary. I hope the public will not be disappointed.” The show passed before going through Argentina, Chile and Peru.
In the script are hits such as We’ll rock you, we’re the champions, another bites the dust and Under pressure. In addition to Queen’s songs, Martel sings, alone at the piano, Sainte Marie and the aria Nessun Dorma. The singer justifies the poetic license.
“As a fan of so many different styles of music, it’s unclear which direction Freddie would have taken. I like to give the public at least one song that Queen never recorded and sing it Freddie style.
Martel performed songs in the film Bohemian Rhapsody (2018), which recounts the trajectory of the group. He previously participated in the band’s tribute project The Queen Extravaganza, alongside original Queen drummer Roger Taylor, in addition to leading his Christian rock band.
