Ever since Freddie Mercury teamed up with Brian May and company back in the 70s, Queen has never been out of fashion. Thanks to Bohemian Rhapsody, however, the band has been roaring up the charts again. You could call it a kind of magic. You could say that their songs must go on. Either way, if you're happy to let the British group keep rocking you — and you need something to fill the void until the remaining band members tour Australia next year — then head along to The Brightside on Friday, May 3.

Been feeling a crazy little thing called love for Freddie and his bandmates? Then you'll be in the right spot. And if your approach to the group's music is "I want it all!", that's what you'll hear at Mamma Mia — Let Me Go. And well as ABBA songs, too, because why not?

Actually, there's still more to this story. With Elton John getting a 70s-set biopic, as aptly called Rocketman, Brisbanites will be able to feel the love, make sure they're still standing and prove that Saturday nights are all right as well. Yep, it's a good ol' fashioned ABBA vs Queen vs Elton John showdown.

The one-night event will break free from 9pm, so get ready to unleash your inner dancing queen, thank everyone for the music and hold someone closer, tiny dancer. Here we go again, indeed. If you're wondering how much money, money, money it'll set all you wannabe rocket men (and women) back, tickets cost $13.98 — and buying in advance is recommended, because it's likely to sell out.

Because it's a hard life even when you're doing the crocodile rock, DJs will spin tunes from all three acts, and you and your fellow champions, super troupers and candles in the wind will take a chance on dancing and singing along. You'll be able to say 'gimme, gimme, gimme' to other tracks from huge artists of the 70s and 80s, too. Basically, prepare to step back in time — and if you miss out, you'll feel a little under pressure.
