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. 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!
Says Clark; “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.”
He continues; “To give an audience a taste of their music live, onstage, creates an atmosphere of magic and nostalgia for some and a new discovery for others.”
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!
The event takes place on Friday, 12th July at 20h00 at KSM Centurion (Kerk Sonder Mure – c/o Hendrik Verwoerd Drive and Hippo Avenue, Centurion) and tickets are available at R200 and R250 at iTickets.co.za

Says Joseph Clark ; “Anything (big OR little) I can do that will (eventually) help ANY person who is suffering from cancer is worth all of my personal and professional time and effort. The world is now closer than ever to the goal of finding the cure(s) for this dread disease and I can only hope that my efforts will help in the next step towards meeting that goal!”
About Joseph Clark:
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 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)
