I've been meaning to but what i really wanted was to see the real thing with Freddie... but that, sadly, is impossible :(

i saw Flash Harry, they were good and the front man would have looked like Freddie if he had more hair, he was a tad bald, still really good. liked it alot.

I plan on seeing one myself someday..if the following ones I will mention ever make it to the states I live in and around.

Anyways,here in the US are the following Q tribute bands:

Under Pressure
Queen for a Day
Queen Nation(These guys sound and look really good.)
Majesty
and this one I recommend the most!
ALMOST QUEEN http://www.almostqueen.com


I've checked out their site several times and imo--they rock as good as the real thing--well--almost as the name desbibes and they did perform near where I lived once,but I live too far from Clevland.

There was also one once called Sheer Heart Attack,but as the movie called Tribute descibed they had to momentarilly disband because their lead singer had things in his life to pursue concerning performing arts.

But who knows--maybe they'll find a new Freddie for that one.

Anyways,i've never even been to a concert in my life--and it would possibly be great to see Paul and Queen--but after hearing his okay voice compared to the mighty Freddie--I just don't know now.

But--I would see a Q tribute any day just for the fun of it.

Oh,and here's two other Q tributes I also recommend checking out at their sites.

KILLER QUEEN
And GARY MULLEN AND THE WORKS.
These guys sound really close to the real thing! Freddie would've been proud!

I have seen Queen-B live back in December 2004 (i think!), and to be honest i was not very impressed. But if you ever get to see Killer Queen - they are a must! I saw out them out in Cyprus when they played a couple of free gigs and they were awesome!

I've seen "It's A Kinda Magic". I found out my friends friend is Freddie. He was so good! I've also seen the guy who won 'Stars in your eyes'
