Have you ever been to a tribute concert? Have you ever been to a good one?
I have seen ELO and Tom Jones tributes before and both were good…but how on Earth do you emulate one of the true greats of music…Freddie Mercury?
Freddie was an ultimate showman with a fantastic vocal range…
Enter Gary Mullen and his band, The Works, for One Night of Queen, all the way from Bonnie Scotland. The 2014 New Zealand tour starting at the Bruce Mason Centre in Takapuna. Gary Mullen won the UK “Stars in Their Eyes” in 2000 and from the moment he leapt onto stage and strutted around like a peacock you couldn’t help but admire how well he did the job. He even brought his own personality to proceedings when chatting with the audience. If you ever get chance to see him…give it a try. His band didn’t let him down either. You won’t be disappointed…you don’t keep a tribute going for so long if you aren’t good. Sure, the range wasn’t quite as broad…but the rest was a sheer delight.
