Dec 28, 2021 · (Image credit: Gus Stewart/Redferns) Queen's Roger Taylor reflects on the band's infamous performance at South Africa's Sun City during the cultural boycott of the country's apartheid era. As a group, the band have always taken an apolitical stance, which was pushed by their late frontman Freddie Mercury.
For context, Sun City was a cash cow in South Africa that allowed performances that the rest of the country forbade. Black Africans were forced into ghettos. Afrikaners were white Africans that enjoyed the cultural and economic benefits of performers coming in.
Sun City is a luxury resort and casino, situated in the North West Province of South Africa. It is located between the Elands River and the Pilanesberg, about 140 km northwest of Johannesburg, near the city of Rustenburg. The complex borders the Pilanesberg National Park.
