I recently saw Magic - a kind of queen perform at one of the local theatres.
The opening track was A Kind Of Magic.
When the band ran out onto the stage, i could have died. The members were all well into their 50's except the bass player. I worried that they would ruin Queens amazing songs.

As it turns out, as musicians, vocalists and performers, they were all awesome.
It showed that playing Queen's songs for 20+ years had made them near perfect.

Getting to the point, aside the real Queen, what is the best tribute band that you have seen?


Innuendo or Kashmir? Both awesome!

The Great Pretender is one of the best Freddie tributes I've seen! But Magic where great too!

I also have seen Magic perform and personally wasnt too impressed. In my oppinion the best tribute band I have seen so far Is flash harry. I thought they were Pretty good, hearing a tribute band belt out all of those great numbers makes me very envious of anyone who has seen the real thing.

Mercury. If you can, try seeing them at a theatre venue as opposed to seeing them at some kind of festival or club because usually they have to strip down their setlist which can be a bit annoying. See them in full flight and you are transported back 20 years!

Magic are ok, but are kindy cheesy.
