But the stage show interpretation was just about right. They did not try to mimic Freddy's performances but gave an energising, fun performance around a light story.
I loved it. I also liked the Scottish twists - kilts, tartan and stuff.
The cast were brilliant and the dancing high octane. It must be very difficult. It was difficult enough for our choir to all sway in the same direction!
The only slight downside for our family was my 16 year old came away with a headache from the flashing lights and noise! Can you believe it? He has very blue eyes and is a bit photosensitive. Just shows that youngsters can't stand the pace - or maybe he really does need some cool shades!.
