UNCANNY: Lead singer Patrick Myers’ resemblance to Freddy Mercury

THE best Queen tribute band in the world has been added to the Gibraltar Calling lineup.

Killer Queen will belt out all the hits on the Classic Stage at the festival on the Rock in just 23 days time.


After forming in 1993 the group has become the only tribute act to sell out the same arenas Queen did.

Frontman Patrick Myers’ portrayal of Freddy Mercury has been described as ‘simply uncanny’, while the band has been labelled ‘the best thing since Queen’.

ICON: Enrique Iglesias will also play at Gibraltar Calling

“It’s been an amazing journey,” the singer said, “That first show back in June 1993 changed my life.

“We thought our band would last maybe a summer at the most but it’s a very addictive thing performing these songs.”

Joining Killer Queen at the festival at Europa Point from September 7-8 is a wealth of international talent.

Take That, Enrique Iglesias, Pete Doherty, Rick Astley, Mel C, Liam Gallagher, Goldierocks, Sigala, King Calaway and Tom Walker will all play the main stage.

Meanwhile Lighthouse Family, David Essex, Nazareth, Slade, 10CC and Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel complete the Classic Stage lineup.

Tickets start at £85 and are available from www.gibraltarcalling.com
