Queen music to rock Ballarat
The wait is over for die-hard fans longing for Queen’s return to Australia. Well, almost!
This weekend, Ballarat will host one Australia’s leading tribute bands, ‘Killer Queen’.
It’s icing on the cake for the throngs of fans who have visited Queen – the Unseen Archive since its star-studded opening at the Art Gallery of Ballarat last month.
Killer Queen promises to set the historic Her Majesty’s Theatre stage alight with all musical legacy, energy and iconic set list of the famous English rock band.
Front man Johnny Blunt takes audiences on journey to a loud parallel universe where Freddie Mercury’s very essence is alive and on stage. The Killer Queen band members even bear a very real and eerie resemblance to the legendary Brits that swept up the world in operatic rock throughout the
1970s and 80s.
Killer Queen was nominated at the South East Queensland Entertainment Awards for Best Tribute Show and has appeared on Channel 9 and Series 3 of Australia’s Got Talent.
The band performs 100% live with no backing tracks and all songs are played in the key of the originals. Fan’s will be treated to all of Queen’s greatest hits, including ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’, ‘We Will Rock You’, ‘We Are The Champions’, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ as well as some surprises.
Tickets to the concert are just $35, with a concession and group price of $30. Tickets are available from MajesTix 03 5333 5888 and online from www.hermaj.com
Killer Queen will appear at her Majesty’s Theatre on Friday 12 March at 8pm and Saturday 13 March at 5pm.
Killer Queen is being presented in conjunction with the exhibition Queen – the Unseen Archive at the Art Gallery of Ballarat, which brings together rare and unique photographs and other memorabilia of the British rock band.
Concert-goers can present their concert tickets at the Gallery for a discount on entry to the exhibition. The exhibition is on show at the Gallery until Sunday 11 April.
