Qween have hit the ground running consistently selling out Dublin’s Newest live Music Venue The Chalk Venue, Swords, along with catching the attention of Radio Nova Legendary Dj, Pat Courtenay, championing them as Ireland’s first tribute act. Only last night, Qween were selected to represent Ireland’s Mercury Phoenix Trust Campaign, In support for the Worlds Aids Awareness Campaign at the Hard Rock Cafe.
Qween has also had the pleasure of performing Live in Cyprus Avenue Cork, Spirit Store Dundalk, Bowery Rathmines and Dolans Limerick
The band formed late last year with the members having played together in numerous other guises over the years. Since their debut Qween have wowed audiences with a theatrical rock show that brings the audience right back in time to the front row of a classic Queen gig.
The band have gone to extreme lengths to capture the magic of Queen acquiring everything from a tailored lemon leather Freddie jacket (á la Queen’s legendary Slane Castle show in 1986) to guitar equipment from Brian May’s former technician Pete Cornish. “Queen’s music is technically difficult but we’re massive fans so we were able to put in the dedication to getting every detail just right”
Qween put everything into making this show as close to seeing Queen as you can get. Qween even cover Bohemian Rhapsody’s infamous opera sectioNen fully live, not even Queen risked that,” he added. Brian Keville is no stranger to playing Freddie Mercury having portrayed the singer in Live Aid drama “When Harvey Met Bob” alongside Domhnall Gleeson’s mouthy Bob Geldof. “Freddie had a way about everything he did that is hard to capture. You need to totally forget who you are and create this larger than life persona with total commitment to your audience” said Keville, “a real bushy moustache also helps!”.
The two hour show features a veritable anthology of Queen’s greatest hits from Radio Ga Ga to Somebody to Love, performed fully live.
