QUEEN - A Rock & Symphonic Spectacular

What was it?

An epic concert of Queen’s greatest hits, featuring rock band, symphony orchestra and star performers from the smash hit musical We Will Rock You. Generate’s Director of Events, Andrew Wyke, worked with Australian-based promoter North Street Productions to produce the first concert tour of Australia. The show enjoyed three complete sell out performances at the iconic Sydney Opera House, performing with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and featuring an international cast of singers and musicians from the UK, USA and Australia. The show then performed at venues across Western Australia with the Perth Symphony Orchestra, the highlight being a performance for 8,000 people at Joondalup Country Club.

How did we do it?

Using our expertise and wide range of contacts we cast the show using musicians and performers from the UK, Australia and the USA. The power of technology meant we could hold ‘virtual’ rehearsals with performers via skype, resulting in everyone performing seamlessly together at the first rehearsal in Sydney the day prior to the first performance. We specified all production logistics and requirements, working with the respective production teams in Sydney, Perth, Joondalup and Mandurah to ensure that every venue and show had consistent layout, technical equipment and thus ran as smoothly as possible. Andrew Wyke and Richard Sidwell (conductor and arranger) flew out from the UK to oversee the shows, which were all a great success. So much so that plans are already underway for an extended tour in 2015. Likes of the Music Of Queen facebook page hit over 1,200 and the facebook page became the number one search return on google.
