Peter Freestone
Thursday September 15
Thornbury Theatre
Celebrating what would have been the iconic singer’s 70th birthday, Peter ‘Phoebe’ Freestone – speaker, author, personal assistant and best friend to Freddie Mercury – will tour Australia in September 2016.
Presented by First Base Events, You’re My Best Friend: An Evening With Peter Freestone will be an intimate evening of personal stories, rock anecdotes, rare photos, unheard audio and audience Q&A covering the 12 years Peter spent living with and working for the Queen front man.
The pair, who met in 1979 whilst Peter was working in wardrobe for London’s Royal Ballet, formed an immediate friendship which saw Peter become Freddie’s personal assistant, a role he continued daily until the singer’s untimely death in 1991.
“I was Freddie’s chief cook and bottle washer, waiter, butler, secretary, cleaner and agony aunt. I travelled the world with him, acted as his bodyguard when needed and in the end, of course, I was one of his nurses.”
