Celebrating the music of Queen at Mission performance

Queen tribute group coming to Clarke Theatre on Friday, Feb. 22

Queen Nation – a tribute to the music of Queen – is coming to Mission’s Clarke Theatre on Friday, Feb. 22.

Among pure rock enthusiasts the legendary band Queen, with front man Freddie Mercury, reigns as one of the most powerful and iconic groups in history. The Kings of Arena Rock performed to packed stadiums around the globe for more than two decades. Mercury took showmanship to a new, untapped level and was crowned, undisputedly, The Lord of Arena Rock. He mesmerized audiences with his charismatic energy and larger-than-life persona as he delivered powerhouse vocals on We Will Rock You, Bohemian Rhapsod, We Are the Champions, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, You’re My Best Friend, Another One Bites The Dust, Under Pressure and many more.

His death in 1991 left a huge void.

Queen Nation was formed in 2004 to carry the musical torch and pay homage to the golden age of vintage Queen concerts.

Queen Nation consists of: Gregory Finsley on vocals and keyboards 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. The band’s 90-minute production of Queen’s greatest hits preserves the image, sound, and stage persona of vintage Queen.

The show is presented by Rock.It Boy Entertainment and tickets are available at all Ticketmaster locations.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show takes place at 7:30 p.m.
