Killer Queen…The world’s best “Queen” Tribute!
“Concerts as near to the real thing as you’re likely to get. A real life Bohemian Rhapsody. Freddie Lives! A Pop Legend Is back” -The People
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 at 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.
In 2016 Killer Queen took the show to America including 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.
