Killer Queen’s first public shows were at London University, following in the footsteps of the real
Queen who had played their first shows there decades earlier.
Killer Queen’s UK popularity grew to such an extent they soon secured a residency in London’s
Strand Theatre attracting nationwide BBC coverage – the first tribute to have a show in the West
End .

The band’s reputation continued to grow both in the UK and abroad leading to an awards ceremony
in Leicester Square, hosted by Suggs from Madness who presented them with the award for
“Worldwide Best Tribute Band”. They also scored a number one hit when they they were asked to
recreate Queen’s harmonies for “The Real Life” with Fatboy Slim.

By now they were in demand in European arenas playing Ahoy, where the now reformed Queen
would be performing only a few months later. They were delighted to sell out Forest National Arena
where Queen filmed the concert set piece videos such as Hammer To Fall and Don’t Stop Me Now.
Killer Queen then joined forces with Bjorn Again and The Bootleg Beatles for a Waverley
Stadium show in Edinburgh. It was this performance that led to the band being selected to represent
Queen in a re-staged tribute LiveAid concert held by Sir Bob Geldof. They performed with him at
his arena charity concert to raise funds for the homeless.

In 2016 Killer Queen set their sights on America including the awe inspiring Red Rocks Arena in
Colorado – one of the countries most prestigious venues. The Beatles, Springsteen, U2 have all
played there and the band are delighted it’s become a regular fixture on Killer Queen’s tour sheet.
By 2020 the band were pulling huge arena audiences in Cardiff Motorpoint, Liverpool and
Nottingham. 2021 sees them back on the road ready to delight huge audiences the world over.
