Killer Queen was 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 won an award for “Worldwide Best Tribute Band”. 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.
The next year Killer Queen joined forces with Bjorn Again and The Bootleg Beatles for a Waverley 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 Vasteras concert hall “Best Concert of The Year 2009”. 2013 saw them performing in another one of Queen’s former venues, this time the Brighton Centre to celebrate their 20th Anniversary.
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 is delighted it’s become a regular fixture on Killer Queen’s tour sheet.
