Killer Queen

My rents and I went to see Queen play at Castle Howard for an evening of rock, champagne and middle aged men playing air guitar! As it turns out, combining the stars from a smash hit West End musical (We Will Rock You), a 60 piece symphony orchestra, a rock band, the grounds of one of the grandest private residences in Britain and about £100,000 worth of fireworks is quite a good idea. Favourite Queen song? A Kind of Magic, Bohemian Rhapsody, Radio Ga Ga, We Are The Champions, Somebody To Love, Who Wants To Live Forever, Killer Queen, Don't Stop Me Know, Fat Bottomed Girls and I Want It All? TOO HARD TO CHOOSE!
Champagne picnic in the grounds of the castle before the concert
Holey socks
My dad hit the booze hard
But maybe a little too hard (ohh and notice how beautiful the
castle is in the background)
Light your lanterns when the sun goes down
My dad and I
Mum, Mike and Sophia watching the concert (this is before they
started doing some very inappropriate air guitar moves)
The newly purchased IKEA solar charged lanterns come up trumps
The 90 piece orchestra and the rock band
Fireworks at the end
Head torches at the ready so we can find our way home in the dark!
.
Ohh and if you were wondering, my air guitar skills rock, I've been taught by the best. Cough cough!
