BRS Entertainment:
 Killer Queen
8pm, Saturday 27 October
Killer Queen have been performing their tribute to Queen’s concert since 1993. Their expert musicianship, extraordinary energy and accurate portrayal of the world’s greatest live band have rightfully earned Killer Queen the title of Queen tribute royalty.

Thrilling sell-out audiences across the globe from the UK to Moscow and annual tour of USA, Killer Queen recreates the high energy, powerful phenomenon that was Queen live.

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. From there, 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”.

Queen's music is loved the world over. Their songs have inspired generations. Recreating the songs on a world stage takes a great deal of skill and Killer Queen's musicianship is outstanding. During their various careers the musicians have worked and recorded with a vast array of artistes including Roger Taylor, Brian May and Monseratte Caballe.

The band also scored a number one hit when they they were asked to recreate Queen's harmionies for “The Real Life” with Fatboy Slim in 2001. 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 restaged tribute LiveAid 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, this time the Brighton Centre to celebrate their 20th Anniversary.

Killer Queen is fronted by Patrick Myers as Freddie Mercury. ‘Time Out’ described Patrick’s resemblance to Freddie Mercury as "Spooky,” his uncanny likeness was further proven when he recorded a number one hit single singing as Freddie Mercury on Fat Boy Slim's record 'The Real Life!' This quality, combined with a powerful 3 1/2 octave tenor range, expert musicianship and dynamic stage presence, has captivated audiences the world over.
