Queen Nation, a tribute band that pays homage to the iconic British rock band, will re-create the Queen concert experience at the Chumash Casino Resort’s Samala Showroom at 8 p.m. on Friday, January 12. Tickets for the show are $15.
Queen, which formed in London in 1970, performed in front of packed stadiums and arenas around the globe for two decades. The group’s lead singer Freddie Mercury took showmanship by a rock ‘n’ roll front man to a whole new level as Queen laid the foundation for the future of arena rock. The band embarked on its final tour with Mercury in 1986, and the front man later died in 1991.
Queen Nation was formed in 2004 and is made up of members Gregory Finsley on vocals and piano as Freddie Mercury, Mike McManus on guitar as Brian May, Pete Burke on drums as Roger Taylor, and Parker Combs on bass as John Deacon.
Queen Nation’s production of Queen’s greatest hits preserves the image, sound and stage persona of vintage Queen. Audiences are amazed at the accuracy of Queen Nation’s live retrospective journey through such Queen songs as “We Will Rock You,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Are The Champions,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “You’re My Best Friend,” “Another One Bites the Dust,” “Under Pressure” and many more.
Don’t miss an opportunity to see this tribute band when it takes the stage in one of the most popular music venues in Santa Barbara County.
