O Freddie, Where Art Thou

All we hear is... radio ga ga...

All we hear is... radio ga ga...

Freddie Mercury died in 1991, but like many of classic rock’s heavyweights, the music of Mercury and his band, Queen, lives on in tribute acts–some even featuring members of the original band. One such act is coming our way, it turns out: Celebrating Queen, featuring the Bohemian Rhapsody Orchestra (yup, they took it there) is scheduled to play the Gillioz Theatre on March 28. We’ve perused their website and we have to admit they do a reasonably good interpretation of the band’s sound, including a very good simulation of Freddie Mercury’s voice by singer/host J.J. Midnight, even if his register doesn’t reach quite as low. But hell, even Queen–ahem, er, Queen’s mostly original-member tribute band–knows it can’t replace the original. Sentimental nitpicking aside, the show is a really cool opportuniy to hear music on a live stage that many readers grew up with but were likely too young to experience during Mercury’s lifetime. Snatch up the chance while it’s here. Tickets can be purchased here or by calling 417-836-7678.
