The glory days of rock legends Queen are set to be relived at Buxton Opera House with a performance by one of the most dynamic and exciting tribute bands around.

Queen was formed in London in 1971, consisting of the late Freddie Mercury, Brian May, John Deacon and Roger Taylor.

The band are one of the world’s best-selling music artists, having released a total of 18 number one albums, 18 number one singles and ten number one DVDs.

A Night of Queen with The Bohemians, established in 1996, is a high-energy show which re-enacts the band’s glory days, from the craziness of the 70s to the magic of the 80s.

A favourite with the ‘official Queen fan club’, The Bohemians were the first Queen tribute look-a-likes to headline the ‘Queen fan club’ convention with an audience of over 2,000 ardent Queen fans. They were also the first tribute act to play every type of event run by the Queen fan club, and the first Queen tribute to be seen, and play on the same bill, as guitarist Brian May, who later described them as ‘brilliant’.

The band play venues all over the world including Ireland, Belgium, Holland, Jordan, Switzerland and China, aiming to deliver the energy, costumes and showmanship of the world’s greatest rock band.

Rob Comber’s outrageous stage antics and personality makes him the perfect Freddie, Christopher Gregory’s Red Special enables him to get as close as possible to Brian May’s inimitable style, Wayne Bourne hammers the tubs like drummer Roger Taylor and Kevin Goodwin provides that unmistakable Queen backline on bass.

Standing ovations greet their performances, with full staging, lighting, backdrops, pyrotechnics and a baby grand piano, as The Bohemians recreate Queen live in concert.

Tickets for The Bohemians - A Night of Queen on Sunday September 1 at Buxton Opera House from 7.30pm, are £16.50 and £18.50. They are available on 0845 127 2190 or at www.buxtonoperahouse.org.uk.
