THE music of two of pop's best-loved groups is celebrated on February 4 as top tribute band, Magic, performs a special concert at The Playhouse, Weston.Two Kinds of Magic pays homage to the musical talents of Queen and the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO).Queen, whose Greatest Hits album sold 25 million copies worldwide, dominated the charts during the 70s, 80s and early 90s with hit singles such as Bohemian Rhapsody, We Are The Champions, Radio GaGa, A Kind Of Magic and Innuendo.ELO, a ground-breaking and innovative UK group, featured an orchestral string section and had 15 top 10 UK hits including the number one single Xanadu. Other ELO hits include Roll Over Beethoven, Livin' Thing, Wild West Hero, Sweet Talkin' Woman, Shine A Little Love, Don't Bring Me Down and Hold On Tight.Formed in 1974, Magic started out as a harmony group performing covers of The Beach Boys, Four Seasons and ELO. The band soon introduced the music of Freddie Mercury into its repertoire and concerts attracted more and more Queen fans.Then, in 1993, Magic produced a tribute fully-dedicated to the music of Freddie Mercury and Queen.The five musicians who make up the band are Roger Brown (lead vocals), Trevor Lock (guitar, vocals), Rob Lock (drums, vocals), Dave Fusaro (guitar, vocals) and Charlie Sutton (bass guitar, vocals).Tickets, priced £12.50-£14.50, are available from the box office on 01934 645544 or via www.theplayhouse.co.uk
