On the heels of Bohemian Rhapsody becoming the highest-grossing music biopic of all time, Classic Albums Live returns to P.E.I. with the Queen masterwork, A Night at the Opera. Confederation Centre of the Artswelcomes the much-celebrated touring act for its second performance of the Sobeys LIVE @ the Centre 2018-19 season, taking to the Homburg stage this Saturday April 6 at 7:30 p.m. This must-see show is sponsored by Charlottetown Inn & Conference Services.

A perennial Centre must-see, Classic Albums Live presents skilled musicians recreating the greatest albums of the ’60s and ’70s live on stage—note for note, cut for cut. The concerts are delivered as a pop symphony. The first half of the show presents the album in full, then the second act stages a ‘best of’ from Queen. Don’t look for costumes and look-alike theatrics at these ‘rock recitals’, just pure musicianship and the songs that shaped a generation.

“Nothing succeeds like excess—at least that’s the case with Queen’s breakthrough classic,” says music historian, Daniel Durchholz of A Night at the Opera. The 1975 full-length is regarded as Queen’s quintessential recording and includes the timeless hit ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. Widely seen as one of the most significant rock songs of all time, the six-minute single was championed by head-bangers a generation before being revived by the Wayne’s World fans. 

The album is remembered for its precisely produced anthems, but it contains a wide variety of material, from the gorgeous piano-based ‘You’re My Best Friend’ and the Paul McCartney-esque ‘39’ to the volume-11 rockers ‘Death on Two Legs’ and ‘I’m in Love with My Car.’”

Tickets are selling very well for this show but there is still some availability. To order, connect via the Centre’s box office, in person, online at confederationcentre.com, or by phone at 902-566-1267 (toll free at 1-800-565-0278.)

Special thanks are extended to the Department of Canadian Heritage; the Province of Prince Edward Island; the City of Charlottetown; to Sobeys; and to media sponsors Ocean 100, Hot 105.5, and The Guardian.
