JOSEPH CLARK – QUEEN EXPERIENCE PRESENTED BY HOSPICE CENTURION
This event is in aid of Centurion Hospice and it takes place on Friday, 12th July at 20h00 at KSM Centurion. Awesome cause to support, helping ease the pain of those suffering from Cancer!!! I’ve been privileged to watch Joseph Clark perform live in the past and it’s so worth it! He does Freddie Mercury justice with his performances of Queen’s music.
International singer, Joseph Clark has long been regarded by many as the world’s number one performer doing justice to Queen’s music, backed by his star-studded band, he will thrill you with a powerful tour de force of his magical and individual style. The group of musicians performs regularly in Europe and had the honour of playing The Gelredome Stadium in The Netherlands to over 30,000 Queen-fans.
Joseph’s “Queen-roots” lie in the 90’s when he starred in Queen At The Opera; one of the most successful productions in South Africa. Apart from being a regular soloist with symphony orchestras in South Africa, Joseph has been the lead vocalist with the NNO (Noord Nederlands Orkest), since 2009, performing throughout the Netherlands, including the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. Born and raised in Texas, Joseph left his ballet career in America when he was brought to South Africa to dance the lead role in Swan Lake and Romeo & Juliet. He soon expanded to musical theatre and won immediate acclaim and national awards for dancing, acting and singing. Musical theatre roles include Buddy in The Buddy Holly Story, Riff/Bernardo in West Side Story, El Gallo opposite pop star Jason Donovan in The Fantasticks, Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar, the narrator in Joseph And His Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat, Anthony in Sweeney Todd and Whizzer in March Of The Falsettos.
One of the highlights of his career was singing for Nelson Mandela at his 85th Birthday.
For their performance at KSM (Kerk Sonder Mure) they are adding the special song, Let Me Live from Queen’s final album, Made In Heaven. Apart from great classics like Innuendo, You Take My Breath Away, Is This The World We Created and Too Much Love Will Kill You, the show still boasts the popular We Will Rock You, Another One Bites The Dust, We Are The Champions, I Want To Break Free, Killer Queen, Fat Bottomed Girls, Bicycle Race and of course Bohemian Rhapsody and Barcelona!
“I’m not a believer in impersonating great artists. But to pay tribute to their music, to keep it alive and new and fresh, is the greatest compliment to their genius.” – Joseph Clark
Joseph Clark – QUEEN Experience has all the elements to make for an eventful, memorable time where you can enjoy a journey of pure nostalgic rock delight and at the same time contribute to Hospice Centurion!

“For me Joseph Clark has long been one of the great interpreters of Queen’s music and he certainly doesn’t disappoint with this magical performance. His vocal versatility comes magnificently to the fore as he moves effortlessly from the quiet ballads, to blues, to rock.” – Journalist Peter Feldman (Artslink.co.za)
