You’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t know of the legendary band, Queen and the most charismatic and flamboyant front man in history, Freddie Mercury. And since 2003 there has been a tribute to this band like no other - Killer Queen!
Brisbane actor and musician, Johnny Blunt conceived the idea for Killer Queen in 2003. Already an experienced and versatile performer, Johnny Blunt decided to pay homage to the greatest rock act of all time. Add a hot band of Queensland’s best session musicians, a wardrobe of detailed and exactly replicated costumes, a stage presence second to none and you have The Killer Queen Show.
Bearing an uncanny resemblance to Freddie Mercury some audience members have commented on what they saw on stage was Freddie’s ghost. From the moment that Johnny steps foot on stage, Freddie’s very essence is alive again and it goes further than that as all members of Killer Queen bear a very real and eerie resemblance to the original band. But hauntingly similar appearances aside, they also play like the original band which is no small feat!
The Killer Queen Show performs live with no backing tracks, just as Queen did back in the day. The Killer Queen Show guitarist, Anthony Smith even uses a signature copy of Queen guitarist Brian May’s guitar to re-create that authentic haunting sound recognized by the millions of fans all around the world.
The Killer Queen Show starts with the hits of the 1970’s – the decade of leather and long hair and goes right through to the 80’s and 90’s when Queen was the hottest act in music. This show will not disappoint, with such immortal rock hits as Crazy Little Thing Called Love, We Will Rock You, We Are The Champions and of course, Bohemian Rhapsody.
Killer Queen has developed its own fan base throughout Australia and overseas as they have toured extensively. They have been featured on Channel 9, played unplugged sessions on 4KQ and 4BC, featured in a two page spread in Woman’s Day and have appeared at the Big Gay Day & in the third season of Australia’s got Talent. And they call Queensland home being the only Queen Tribute show in the Sunshine State.
