Scandinavia at the Kalich Theater in Prague

Dear friends, as you could have already noticed, another concert that we are preparing is approaching. After a sold out performance in SONU in Brno and another sold-out show at the Josef Kajetán Tyl Theater in Pilsen, which is still to happen on February 25, 2017, we will have a concert at the Kalich Theater in Prague!

The concert is scheduled for April 13, 2017 from 19:00 and will be part of our Scandinavian tour. So we are going to make a stop in Prague for this very unique concert, for which we will bring the dramaturgy of the whole tour to Kalich. Size-wise it will be the biggest concert we have ever had in Prague and it will make full use of the potential of the theater environment and equipment of the Kalich Theater. Soprano Petra Alvarez, soloist of the National Theater, will make appearance as a guest of the concert.

We conceive our shows as a concert theater – and this performance will be twice that! Do not miss it.

Art against AIDS

Libor Vaculík’s accla­imed dance musical Freddie – The King of Queen is a portrayal of the life and artistic career of Queen‘s singer Freddie Mercury, who became one of the most famous victims of AIDS.

The J. K. Tyl Theater will dedicate the repeat performance on October 2 to the prevention and fight against this disease and will support the activities of the Positive Life charitable foundation. The performance on the New Stage will be followed by a few additions from QUEENIE band and the visitors will have an opportunity to see a photo exhibition in the foyer. There will also be an autograph ceremony with the main performers: Michael Kluch, Richard Ševčík, Iva Marešová and soprano Monika Sommerová, who will sing the famous opera duet Barcelona together with the band. The New Theater building will be illuminated in red all night long.

„Freddie Mercury would have been seventy years old this year, and twenty-five years have passed since his death, so we have decided to make this performance special in way and help the good thing at the same time. We want to express our support for the Positive Life foundation, which has focused on preventing and fighting AIDS for a long time,“ says the theater‘s art secretary Michal Lieberzeit.

From September 27 to October 2, an exhibition of black-and-white photographs capturing the everyday life of people infected with HIV will be placed in the New Stage foyer. The exhibition is traveling and besides Pilsen it could be seen in Prague, Munich and Zurich. In addition to photos, there will be information boards dedicated to the aforementioned patients in the foyer, through which they provide an opportunity to look into their private lives afflicted with the malicious disease. „I think the J.K.Tyl Theater contributes enormously to the prevention and fight against AIDS by having a performance about Freddie Mercury on the repertoire,“ said Miroslav Hlavatý, chairman of the foundation’s board of trustees. The patronage of the event was taken over by the Minister of Health of the Czech Republic MUDr. Svatopluk Němeček.

Once again, moustaches, masks, costumes, and all kinds of Mercury's theme outfits are very welcome :-) Like every year, with this show we are joining the worldwide event „Freddie for a Day“, which takes place at Hard Rock Cafe venues across the planet. After the performance, Queenie autograph session will be held.

The admission is voluntary and will be transferred to the Mercury Phoenix Trust. Facebook event here.

Winter / Spring 2015 - Scandinavia

Yesterday, we started the most demanding part of our current Scandinavian tour. After Finland and Norway we are going to spend 2 weeks in Sweden, with a total of 8 concerts.

First city conquered! It is the oldest Viking town of Västerås. You can check out what they wrote about us on the following link: http://vlt.se/…-queenkopior

Among other things, we will play in the university town of Uppsala, where the show will include the entirely unique Barcelona duet. The popular Swedish singer Elisabeth Wanngård will be our guest. An interesting fact is that the concert will be held in the local auditorium for 1,800 people where it will be the first rock concert since Led Zeppelin‘s show on March 15, 1969. This classical concert hall hosted i.a. Pope John Paul II.

Michael Kluch for the biggest Czech musical server Musical.cz

Our singer Michael Kluch talked about himself and more with Musical.cz.

„First of all, I would like to say that we do not even call our project a tribute band. What we do is a musical theater. We have authentic instruments, we play the songs in their original tones, we wear period costumes and on the stage every member has his role. It is not an imitation, we just play Queen. I dare to say that thanks to such a philosophy we are successful and I can thus also state exactly the opposite – thanks to my band I am free, not only because the band is my primary source of income, but also because I do what I really enjoy and I can choose what I'm going to enjoy next. As I have already hinted, money has never been the main priority to us. If you are going into something with pure energy, the rest just accumulates on top of it. We are absolutely independent, no one has made us, we ourselves are our masters and that's what I enjoy so much.“
