Killer Queen: A Tribute to Queen
The premier Queen tribute band, Killer Queen, will be bringing their must-see live show to The Carolina Opry Theater! Formed in 1993, Killer Queen played their first public shows at London University where Queen themselves had played their first shows 21 years earlier. By 1995, Killer Queen’s UK popularity had grown to such an extent that they secured a residency in London’s Strand Theatre attracting nationwide BBC coverage – the first tribute to have a show in the West End. Before long, they were touring throughout the world and racking up awards; they accepted the award of “Worldwide Best Tribute Band” in 1999 at a ceremony hosted by Suggs of Madness and the “Best Concert of the Year” award in 2009 at Sweden’s Vasteras concert hall. Killer Queen is the only tribute to have sold out the same arenas as Queen did in their heyday, such as Ahoy Stadium and the Brighton Centre, and are regulars at some of America’s most prestigious venues such as Austin City Limits and the awe-inspiring Red Rocks Arena in Colorado, where the Beatles, Springsteen and U2 have all graced the stage. Singer Patrick Myers is an absolute dead ringer for the legendary Freddie Mercury (both visually and vocally), resulting in a live concert experience that is second only to catching an ‘80s era Queen performance. The group’s likeness is so uncanny that they were selected to represent Queen in a re-staged tribute LiveAid concert held by Sir Bob Geldof. Killer Queen will be live at The Carolina Opry Theater on October 1, 2023 at 7:00pm. Tickets are on sale now.
