Tonight: One Night of Queen at the Bluebird
There is only one Freddie Mercury, and there will never be another performer like him -- but Gary Mullen is an excellent reminder of why and how Queen changed the landscape of modern music forever. Along with his band, The Works, Mullen brings Mercury and company's epic existence back to life with a two-hour stage show celebrating the group's anthemic, operatic pop.
For the last decade, Mullen has been strutting stages across the world with the "One Night of Queen" show, representing Mercury in both a physical and vocal homage, sporting a comparable mustache and four-octave range. With big lights, a lead singer in full Freddie Mercury regalia and a tight backing band, this stadium-rock revival set in the intimate Bluebird Theater should be one of the better tributes of the year. The show is sixteen and up, and tickets are $30-$35. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the concert starts at 8.
