Ive seen two- magic, a kind of queen, who performed freshers wk near my college- they are like 5 or 6 50years old men but boy, their lead singer was good! having said that, it really was a bleeding tribute- cheesy!

The other was at my local park music concert, queen b. they were so good i way almost convinced they were the real thing! their freddie was so spot on.
think they have websites....

how bout you lot?

I've seen Magic too and I agree with what you said. The one thing I didn't like about their performance were the lights tht went off whenever they sang the word Flash and scorch you in the retinas :(

The other person I've seen in the flesh is Gary Mullen, who did Stars in their eyes a few years back. He was pretty good, but his voice seemed a little weak in places.

The people I'd really like to see are Miracle :) Anyone who can pull off the Prophet's song has to be blinding :)

Flash Harry are good, the are a bunch of guys who are from Northern Ireland.

Killer Queen, they are brilliant the guy who plays Freddie is stunning, and there are only one or two key changes in their set.

IMO Magic are crap, I saw them and was not impressed.
Dont even start me on Mullen.


Give me a good guitar and you can say that my hairs a disgrace.

Wow, i apologise. That really was very very rude of me. Amazingly i work most days of my own holiday like alot of students, so no, i dont catch every single post on here. Sometimes (shock horror) i come on off peak and some of the new posts have moved so far down the list that i miss them. I beg your forgiveness >:(

Yep - the lights are a tad bright! I thought their harmonies were stunning - and they sung the complete Bo Rhap too.

My favorite tribute band is Queen+. wink wink. nudge nudge. Say no more. :)

Sorry, poor attempt at Monty Python humor.


There can be only one....Freddie.
