Paying homage to Queen

Hawke's Bay's Killer Queens are proud to be bringing their show to Gisborne for the first time this September.

Featuring a four-piece band and four lead vocalists, the group bring their own style and edge in recreating over 20 Queen songs, and have been described as “a completely live band of Hawke's Bay's finest musicians”.

Killer Queens are not a tribute band, there are no cheap wigs and fake moustaches here.

The band respectfully pays homage to the music, influence and electricity of one of the biggest-selling bands in the world.

The group, made up of three music teachers, a school principal, a software engineer and a semi-pro golfer, will play at the Dome Cinema on September 4.

“The night will span the entirety of Queen's career, with songs from the early years and songs Freddie never got to perform live with the band before he passed away in 1991,” drummer and band manager Rob Franks says.

“There will be crowd favourite sing-alongs, stomping anthems and a few surprises thrown in.

“This night is set to be one that will be talked about for a long time.”

Tickets are available here.
