Majesty were finally back on the road as the took to the stage for only the second time this year to perform their sell out Queen Tribute show at The Castle Theatre in Wellingborough.
Majesty - Live at The Castle Theatre
Majesty were finally allowed out to play as the government made the decision to open theatres and concert venues to half capacity audiences. Thursday 8th July 2021 found Majesty Royally Rocking at The Castle Theatre in Wellingborough. A new venue for the band and only the second show after the government allowed theatres and music venues to reopen. The show was still subject to limited audience numbers, but what they lacked in size, the Wellingborough audience more than made up for in enthusiasm.
"We knew getting back on the stage was going to be emotional, but the excitement in the room that night was incredible. Even though we had to keep half the seats empty, the audience made up for it in spades with their energy and enthusiasm. We just felt incredible lucky to be able to finally get out and enjoy life with our wonderful audiences - It's been a long time and we've missed it dearly!" - Rob Lea (Freddie Mercury)
Due to the restrictions still in place, less than half the usual audience capacity were able to attend the Castle Theatre, but what the audience lacked in numbers they made up for in volume!
What's on at The Castle Theatre
The Castle Theatre has been providing a fantastic selection of entertainment to the local community in Wellingborough for many years and after a recent partnership with Park Leisure in 2019, The Castle Theatre are now inviting some of the UK's top entertainment shows as well as producing their own in house productions.
General Manager of Castle Theatre, Martin Cleverley, said: "I am extremely excited at the opportunity to work with the venue team at Castle Theatre and look forward to developing a programme that is diverse, engaging and involves community."
It is really heartening to see people coming back and supporting live performances and their local theatres after the upheavals of the last 16 months. Queen fans in attendance that night were treated to a show filled with Queen classics. Singing along was OK (I think) and for everyone, it was a wonderful reminder of the power and positivity of music, bringing people together again to celebrate Freddie Mercury and Queen.
It was an honour to see such a welcoming audience turn up for Majesty's Queen extravaganza on 8th July. With theatre's not being able to operate for so long and the news of closures across the country, it was a privilege to be able to support The Castle Theatre reopening to the public and we can't wait to return.
Where can I see Queen Tribute Majesty?
Majesty will be performing across the UK from July and shall be performing their 5 star, sell out show once again. To see Majesty's full touring schedule visit the Majesty Tour Page, or to keep up to date with Majesty head over to their Facebook Page and say a quick hello to the boys.
The Break Free tour will continue into 2022 at venues all over the UK and hopefully beyond. I'm sure people will feel more and more confident returning to the live entertainment experience. The performers, technicians and house staff are all keen to get back to giving people a truly memorable experience. As Mick J said. " I know it's only Rock n Roll, but I like it!"
