Win tickets to Queen, It’s a Kinda Magic

Queen has written more classic rock anthems than you’d even realize. Like, they have so many hits there are some you just forget about, unless you’re looking at the band’s greatest hits album, which there are two volumes of.

That’s how many anthems the band has.

That’s the wheelhouse for “Queen, It’s a Kinda Magic,” the touring Queen tribute that plays the Saroyan Theatre on Saturday. The show recreates the band at its iconic best — live and on stage.

Aré You telling me i can win tickets for a tribute of one of the greatest rock bands ever?!
Bo rhapsody is probably one of my favorites. I Never heard anything like it. It’s amazing how they can include all these genres of music and make it a hit.

“You’re My Best Friend” is my favorite Queen song. It is my beautiful wife and my wedding song and we have been married for nine and a half wonderful years.

“Don’t Stop Me Now” that is one of the best Queen songs ever recorded. It’s Rock, It’s Broadway, Its Soul!
Oh Yeah the “Flash Gordon Theme” is a close second!

My favorite song from Queen would have to be ‘Somebody To Love’. It’s my favorite because this is a song everyone at one point could relate to, wanting and waiting to find someone to give all your love to.

I like “Fat Bottomed Girls You Make This Rockin’ World Go ‘Round.” They do!! :)

QUEEN was awesome!!! They had dozens of great tunes but I think my favorite was “The Show Must Go On!” Dang I would’ve loved to see them with Freddie Mercury!
