Killer Queen formed back in June 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 London’s 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 abroad. In 1999 they returned from a tour of and Europe and Russia for an awards ceremony in Leicester Square, hosted by Suggs from Madness. He announced they had won the award for “Worldwide Best Tribute Band” .
In 2016 Killer Queen set their sights on America including the awe inspiring Red Rocks Arena in Colorado – one of the countries most prestigious venues. The Beatles, Springsteen, U2 have all played there and the band are delighted it’s become a regular fixture on Killer Queen’s tour sheet.
2019 sees the band’s fourth and biggest 10 week US tour as well headlining across Europe, Scandinavia and Russia.
The fabulous Killer Queen came on stage. What an impact! Mirage or Resurection? The group voted best tribute in the world entirely succeeded in resurrecting Freddie Mercury both physically and vocally. You almost believe you were at Wembley Stadium back in 1986.

“Killer Queen took to the stage, the performance was scarily real. ‘Freddie Mercury’ gave it all he had in his trademark yellow suit – several outfit changes followed. The audience interaction could almost have been rehearsed. The crowd roared, danced and joined in as though it was a requirement for entry. Brilliant.”
