PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust presents the return of "One Night of Queen," a rock tribute concert emulating the spirit and passion of rock icon Freddie Mercury, at 7:30 p.m. April 20 at the Byham Theater.
Performed by musician Gary Mullen & The Works, this '80s rock concert pays tribute to the stage theatrics and music of British band Queen. This concert is part of the 2010-11 Cohen & Grigsby Trust Presents series.
Formed in 2000 by Gary Mullen, "One Night of Queen" has toured virtually non-stop around the U.K., U.S., Germany, Portugal, France, Holland and New Zealand.
"Gary bears a remarkable likeness to Freddie, not only in emulating Freddie's unique stage persona but also accurately reproducing Freddie's live vocal style and range," said Brian May, former Queen guitarist and song writer.
The tribute band will perform Queen songs such as "Bohemian Rhapsody," "We are the Champions," "Killer Queen," "You're My Best Friend," "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," "Radio Ga Ga," "Under Pressure" and "Another One Bites the Dust."
Gary Mullen, vocals, will be accompanied by David Brockett, lead guitar; Billy Moffat, bass guitar; Jonathan Evans, drums; and Malcolm Gentles, keyboards.
