The Freddie Mercury factor

How can a 17 year old shy immigrant, fresh from Zanzibar arrive in London, a complete stranger and within 5 years, become one of the greatest vocalists and rock stars the world has ever known?

Aubrey Malden, author, motivator and partner at Forensic Marketing will be hosting a special evening where he'll tell the remarkable story of Freddie Mercury.

It’s hard to believe, especially, when at first he couldn’t really sing or play the guitar. Aubrey Malden, who studied with the then Farrouk Bulsara takes you through a mind-blowing case-history and motivational talk about Bulsara's incredible transformation into Freddie Mercury, the exceptional brains and motivational leader of the band Queen.

Using private video interviews with his friend Fred and glittering videos from live shows and interviews with Fred’s entourage, Aubrey shares with you eye-popping behind the scenes insights into how Fred took a band, who didn’t really want him, into the top slot in the world of rock.

Share the feelings and learn the secrets as Fred, through obsessive self-motivation and exceptional attention to detail transformed his own shy and, in Fred’s own words, “boring” personality into Freddie Mercury leader of Queen. This is rare. It’s true. And it will rock you!

The Fred Show will be at the Barnyard Theatre, Rivonia on Wednesday, 2 Aug 2017 - 20:00. Tickets are sold for R120.00
