Queen Legion is a four-piece matching period rock costumed Queen tribute band that performs a live 90-minute show of Queen’s library of greatest hits. They work hard to try and recreate a vintage Queen concert show format. The presentation is meant to be realistic, authentic, and reminiscent of an early arena rock show honoring and paying homage to Freddie Mercury, arguably one of the greatest lead performers, and the band Queen, who are unquestionably one of the greatest rock bands of all time. We hope you enjoy the show as you will hear them perform Queen’s timeless arena rock classics such as “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Fat Bottomed Girls”, “Somebody To Love”, “We Will Rock You”, “We Are The Champions”, and many more.
