- Classic Albums Live: Queen…A Night at the Opera, Dec. 13, 2019, 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available online or at the FAC box office.
Queen’s A Night at the Opera was a game-changer for rock ‘n’ roll if you grew up in the 1970s. This album was everywhere! All of a sudden, long-haired rockers were singing along to operatic songs with soaring arrangements. Queen became one of the world’s greatest bands by working hard. They toured endlessly and in the studio, they strived for perfection. Classic Albums Live performs Queen’s groundbreaking album “A Night at the Opera” note for note, cut for cut. The concert features the songs “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Love of My Life,” and “You’re My Best Friend” and much more. After intermission, the band plays from the catalog of Queen’s extensive greatest hits collection. Founded in 2003 by Craig Martin, Classic Albums Live has become the ultimate destination for music lovers wanting to hear the greatest albums performed live without all the gimmickry and cheesy impersonations. Relying only on the music, using what Martin refers to as ‘the world’s best musicians,’ Classic Albums Live has defined itself as a mainstay in Performing Arts Centers across North America.
