QUEEN TRIBUTE CONCERT
FRI 5TH AUG 2011 – PINILLO BEACH MARBELLA
CELEBRATING 40 YEARS OF THE GREATEST ROCK BAND OF ALL TIME!!
Dream Ticket Promotions, the team that brought you the sell-out BJÖRN AGAIN ABBA show last year bring you the most anticipated event of the summer – the huge “QUEEN TRIBUTE CONCERT” on Friday 5th of August at the stunning new PINILLO BEACH open air concert arena in MARBELLA in partnership Marbella Town Hall and supported by Hard Rock Café.
On the 5th August 1986, Queen and Freddie Mercury played their last-ever European concert to 25,000 people in Marbella’s football stadium. Exactly 25 years later, on Friday 5th August 2011, Marbella will once again rock to the sound of Queen’s greatest hits.
GARY MULLEN & THE WORKS PERFORM “ONE NIGHT OF QUEEN”
Headlining this unmissable night of entertainment are GARY MULLEN & THE WORKS performing their acclaimed international show “ONE NIGHT OF QUEEN”. Over the past 10 years they’ve played sold-out concerts all over the world, including 45,000 fans at the iconic Hyde Park in London. Even Queen guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor are reported to be fans quoted as saying, “This is the only show we recommend to our fans.” Now for the first time, their incredibly accurate performances of Queen’s timeless anthems will get Marbella rocking… They are the most successful and highly regarded Queen tribute band in the world, with perfect recreations of the songs, the showmanship and the light show – you will never see a more accurate performance of a Queen concert!
Gary and the guys are excited about their first show on Spanish soil saying “We’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to play to the legions of Queen fans in Spain…you had better be ready to get off your asses and rock!”
WE WILL ROCK YOU – BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY – WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS A KIND OF MAGIC – RADIO GA GA – DON’T STOP ME NOW – ONE VISION I WANT TO BREAK FREE – BARCELONA – KILLER QUEEN – SOMEBODY TO LOVE – AND MORE…
2011 marks 40 years since the legendary rock band QUEEN formed in 1971 and 20 years since the sad passing of their phenomenal and flamboyant singer Freddie Mercury who remains an icon beyond measure. These milestones in musical history are being celebrated around the globe with album releases, documentaries, exhibitions and a movie, re-igniting interest in the band’s musical legacy once again.
One of the most successful acts in history with worldwide album sales of more than 170 million, the international hit musical “WE WILL ROCK YOU”, inductions into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and concerts performed in every corner of the world, including their historic appearance at Live Aid in 1985. Their remarkable musical legacy spanning four decades has inspired a host of diverse artists from Lady Gaga (who took her name from Queen’s “Radio Ga Ga”), Axl Rose and Katy Perry through to Dave Grohl. And with over 9 million Facebook fans, their popularity continues to grow!
SOPRANO – RUTH KERR SINGS “BARCELONA” – Acclaimed international soprano Ruth Kerr will be joining Gary Mullen & The Works on stage to sing the unforgettable classic “BARCELONA” sung originally by FREDDIE MERCURY and MONTSERRAT CABALLÉ, in a rendition put together especially for this concert.
PLUS – RUTH LORENZO RETURNS! – She stole the show when she performed in Marbella last year, enthralling the crowd with her breathtaking voice, unbridled Spanish passion and stunning stage presence – a true star in every sense and we are thrilled to have her back. This year the 2008 “X Factor” finalist has put together a special set of rock classics to fit with the theme of the night and open the show with a bang!
