Killer QueenThursday, July 19, 2018
Featuring Patrick Myers as Freddie Mercury
Killer Queen formed back in June 1993. Their first public shows were at London University, following in the footsteps of the real Queen who had played their first shows there 21 years earlier. By 1995 Killer Queen's UK popularity had grown to such an extent they secured a residency in London's Strand Theatre attracting nationwide BBC coverage - the first tribute to have a show in the West End. The band's reputation continued to grow both in the UK and abroad. In 1999 they returned from a tour of and Europe and Russia for an awards ceremony in Leicester Square, hosted by Suggs from Madness. He announced they had won the award for “Worldwide Best Tribute Band”. The band also scored a number one hit when they were asked to recreate Queen's harmonies for “The Real Life” with Fatboy Slim in 2001. Killer Queen toured into their second decade, the audiences grew. In 2005 they played Ahoy Stadium, where the reformed Queen would be performing only a few months later. The next year Killer Queen joined forces with Bjorn Again and The Bootleg Beatles for a Waverly Stadium show in Edinburgh. It was this performance that led to the band being selected to represent Queen in a re-staged tribute Live-Aid concert held by Sir Bob Geldof. They performed with him at his arena charity concert to raise funds for the homeless. 2009 saw a triumphant return to a sold out Ahoy stadium with their acclaimed “Queen Spectacular” production and another award, this time from Sweden's Vasteras concert hall “Best Concert of The Year 2009”. 2013 saw them performing in another one of Queen's former venues, The Brighton Centre, to celebrate their 20th Anniversary. In 2016 Killer Queen took the show to America at The Red Rocks Arena in Colorado – one of the country’s most prestigious venues – The Beatles, Springsteen, U2 have all played there. They will be returning there as a part of their 3rd US tour in 2018.
