Featuring Patrick Myers as Freddie Mercury
Killer Queen’s first public shows were at London University, following in the footsteps of the real Queen who had played their first shows there decades earlier.
Killer Queen’s UK popularity grew to such an extent they soon secured a residency in London’s Strand Theatre attracting nationwide BBC coverage – the first tribute to have a show in the West End.
By now they were in demand in European arenas playing Ahoy, where the now reformed Queen would be performing only a few months later. They were delighted to sell out Forest National Arena where Queen filmed the concert set piece videos such as Hammer To Fall and Don’t Stop Me Now.
Killer Queen then joined forces with Bjorn Again and The Bootleg Beatles for a Waverley Stadium show in Edinburgh. It was this performance that led to the band being selected to represent Queen in a re-staged tribute LiveAid concert held by Sir Bob Geldof. They performed with him at his arena charity concert to raise funds for the homeless.
Killer Queen set their sights on America including the awe inspiring Red Rocks Arena in Colorado – one of the county’s most prestigious venues. The Beatles, Springsteen, and U2 have all played there and the band are delighted it’s become a regular sell out fixture on Killer Queen’s tour sheet.
2023 sees the band pull in huge arena audiences in Cardiff, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Leeds and Nottingham as we as more sell out shows in Red Rocks and Austin City Limits.
