Killer Queen have been performing their tribute to supergroup Queen and the late Freddie Mercury since 1993, thrilling audiences across the globe with their musicianship and dynamic stage presence.
On Sunday, August 28, they bring their special ‘kinda magic’ to the Norwich Theatre Royal stage with a full-on concert belting out a wide range of the high energy hits that marked Queen out as legends – and in today’s competition we have two pairs of tickets to be won.
The band is fronted by Patrick Myers as Freddie Mercury. He not only bears an uncanny likeness to the man himself with a three-and-a-half octave range enabling him to hit those Mercury high notes, but he has also earned approval from Queen guitarist Brian May whose website declares: “This guy is not to be missed.”
Formed in 1993, frontman Myers is backed by a four-piece band, hand-picked to emulate the musicianship of Brian May, John Deacon and Roger Taylor.
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 21 years earlier. By 1995, the tribute band’s UK popularity had grown to such an extent they secured a residency in London’s Strand Theatre attracting nationwide BBC coverage and making them the first tribute to have a show in the West End. For the Norwich date, audience members can expect a high energy performance with a stunning stage set and special effects and faithful renditions of Queen’s greatest hits from across their entire recording career from the Seven Seas of Rye through to their 90s classics – and displaying more than a smattering of that commanding Mercury magic and dynamic stage presence.
