Killer Queen Tribute to the Music of Queen

Killer Queen formed back in 1993.  Their 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 Killer Queen’s UK popularity had grown to such an extent they secured a residency in Londons Strand Theatre attracting nationwide BBC coverage.  The first tribute to have a show in the West End.

The band’s reputation continued to grow both in the UK and aboard.  In 1999 they returned from a  tour of Europe and Russia and an awards ceremony in Leicester square, hosted 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 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 were asked to recreate Queen;s harmonies for “The Real Life: with Fatboy Slim in 2001.

As Killer Queen toured into their second decade, the audiences grew.  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 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.

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 Vaseras concert hall “Best Concert of the Year 2009”
