You know what you need? You need a date night that rocks — seriously rocks. So this week we’re giving two tickets to one rockin’ mama so she can take her sweetie (or a hard rockin’ friend) to see One Night of Queen at the Walton Arts Center on March 15, 2013. Things start rockin’ at 8 p.m.
Click the play arrow on the video above if you want to know if this band does the legendary group Queen justice. They do. In fact, it’s hard to believe you’re watching a tribute band instead of the real thing. They cover all the Queen classics including We Will Rock You, Bohemian Rhapsody, Fat Bottomed Girls, We Are the Champions, and The Show Must Go On.
ABOUT THE SHOW: The backstory on this show is fascinating. The lead singer, Gary Mullen, applied to be on a televised talent show in Britian that was called “Stars in Their Eyes.” Each contestant was supposed to impersonate a showbiz star. In the year 2000, Garry Mullen impersonated Freddie Mercury of Queen on the show, and the reaction was as phenomenal as Queen’s music. During the finale, the show received a record number of votes for Gary’s performance — so many, in fact, that his vote totals more than doubled the runner-up and he won the entire season.
Gary began touring on his own and in 2002, he formed a band called “The Works” to pay tribute to rock legend Queen. They’ve performed through the United Kingdom, Europe, South Africa, New Zealand and the United States, giving spectacular live concerts that recreate the look, sound, pomp and showmanship of the greatest rock band of all time.
We don’t think we need to tell you how many “cool wife” points you’ll score with your husband if you win tickets to this kind of hard rockin’ date night. This would also be a great surprise gift for a teenager who loves classic rock. And needless to say, we believe every hard-workin’ mama deserves a night off to rock out.
