Direct from England, Killer Queen, the longest established worldwide Queen tribute, arrives in St. Charles for a night of the greatest Queen hits of all time at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct 5 at the historic Arcada Theater in downtown St. Charles.
Heralded as the standard for Queen tributes, Killer Queen was formed back in June 1993. Their first public shows were at London University, following in the footsteps of the real Queen who had played the first shows there 21 years earlier. By 1995 Killer Queen's UK popularity had grown to such an extent they 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. In 1999 they returned from a tour of and Europe and Russia for an awards ceremony in Leicester Square, hosted by Suggs from Madness. He announced they had won the award for "Worldwide Best Tribute Band." Queen's music is loved the world over. Their songs have inspired generations. Recreating the songs on a world stage takes a great deal of skill and Killer Queen's musicianship is outstanding. During their various careers, the musicians have worked and recorded with a vast array of artists including Roger Taylor, Brian May and Monseratte Caballe. Don’t miss this night of brilliant rock music in the heart of historic St. Charles.
