RHAPSODY IN THE SKY / QUEEN SUPER FIREWORKS

WHAT: RHAPSODY IN THE SKY / QUEEN SUPER FIREWORKS 2019
WHY: FIREWORKS AND ROCK MUSIC
WHEN: DATES THROUGHOUT NOVEMBER 2019
WHERE: JAPAN
COST: TICKETED EVENT

Japan is already known to put on some of the most epic firework displays throughout the summer months but in November they will go one step further with an event that will be the first of its kind in Japan. Queen super fireworks, or ‘yozora no rhapsody’, will be a tribute to a legend of the British music industry; that’s right, you guessed it is the fantastic Queen.

Japan has one of the most loyal Queen fan bases in the World and they have been supporting them ever since the band first toured over there in 1975. Queen and Adam Lambert are due to tour there in 2020 and the tickets for the show were so popular that they sold out in seconds. When the band released the film Bohemian Rhapsody, once again the sales of the tickets were stratospheric.

In this instance, the loyal fans will now reach the skies throughout Japan with three events in November; full of music and massive fireworks displays.

Dates & Venues

Sunday 3rd November – Maishima Sports Island (Osaka)

Saturday 16th November – Urayasushi Total Park (Chiba)

Saturday 30th November – Miyazaki Rink Park (Miyazaki)

Officially approved by Queen themselves, the super fireworks event will light up the skies in a blaze of light and effect as the fireworks are perfectly synchronised to some of the greatest hits such as “Somebody to love”, “We will rock you” and the film’s soundtrack the unparalleled “Bohemian Rhapsody”. The director of the display is Ryo Oro, regarded to be one of Japans experts in pyrotechnics and specialist in the programming of pyro musicals. One of the events he is most known for was the 2019 Koyoto Geijutsu Hanabi (Artistic fireworks) commemorating Emperor Naruhito’s accession to the throne.

Programme

15:00 – opening / food court opening

18:30 – fireworks start

  • Part 1: Art fireworks course
  • Part 2: Great Sky Art – where fireworks and music are synchronised together

19:30 – Ending

This will be a ticketed event and is also expected to be very popular so grab a ticket while you can, tickets start from the early bird discount 6,480yen (£51) and the standard seating tickets cost 7,560yen (£60).

The night promises to be an over the top extravaganza of rock music, just like the band. The event will last over an hour long and will be packed with non-stop musical entertainment and over 1,300 fireworks will be released into the night sky, perfectly choreographed to the rhythm, melody, musical instrument and vocals and is not to be missed. As a fan of both fireworks and Queen, this will be something that I will be keeping an eye on myself.

Diamond Jubilee Pack

Diamond Jubilee Firework Pack

When we sat down to design this pack, the first consideration was who it will appeal to.

Obviously, the theme would be red white and blue to celebrate Her Majesties sixty years as our sovereign. From the deep scarlet strobes of the Aerial atom to the bright cherry reds of the fabulous Cosmic Charge followed by the stunning effects of the Galaxian with its shades of blues and reds, the pack was put together to include a huge variety of effects. From pearls to huge dahlias, this pack has it all and is sure to impress all from eight to eighty.

Geared more towards a visual display than an ear splitter, the pack includes some lower noise pieces, perfect for the family, or displays of mixed adults and younger children.

Looking for a variety of fireworks, excellent value for money (as always), and something to impress, the new Diamond Jubilee pack, could be the perfect answer.

The finale on this pack is simply stunning, a guaranteed crowd pleaser. With the ease of use and safety in mind as always, all Epics D.I.Y firework kits come with, safety lighting devices called portfires which won’t blow out, a setup plan, safety goggles, rocket launch tubes and safety hints and tips.

Your firing order supplied free of charge will advise which fireworks to light in which order for the best visual spectacular.

For those able to collect from our Head Office (just 2 Mins from junction 36 of the M1) you will receive the added bonus of £149.95 worth of free rockets.
