She will rock you…
Five ferocious females ascend the rock throne and step into Freddie’s shoes (and shorts, leather jackets and leotards) in a celebration of glam rock.
Electrifying performances of Queen’s greatest hits, with some original infusions from other glam rock royals Prince and David Bowie thrown in, Killer Queens pays tribute to one of the greatest front-men and queer icon, Freddie Mercury.
Sure, you’ve been rocked by ‘We Are The Champions’, ‘Another One Bites The Dust’,’ Somebody to Love’, ‘We Will Rock You’ and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ before, but you haven’t heard them sung like this.
Following a sell-out season at Melt Festival, Killer Queens is a combination of prog rock, heavy metal, vaudeville, astonishing vocals, and campy theatrics, five women perform all the classics we know and love in a way you’ve never heard before.
Forget the tragic tribute bands and bastardising impersonations, this is how Queen is meant to be celebrated, remembered, and performed. Bombastic, brilliant and bold, the Killer Queens are guaranteed to blow your mind.
Presented by HOTA, Home of the Arts, and Oscar Theatre Company as part of FIRESIDE and Bleach* Festival
