Killer Queen

Picture this: You’re at the Ravinia in Highland Park, Illinois, in the grass area with a beer in one hand and a sandwich in the other. It’s a Saturday, the 27th of July to be exact. You’re not worried about having to go to work the next day. All of a sudden, you hear it! Sheee’s a Killeeer Queeeen. Some dude dressed as Freddie Mercury pops up on stage, and it’s like you’re back in the heyday of one of the best bands in history, watching them live.

That’s exactly the scenario that you’ll be able to live out if you head to The Ravinia in Highland Park on Saturday, July 27th. Killer Queen, which is a band that naturally sings covers from the iconic British group led by the late great Freddie Mercury, will be headlining that weekend’s event. You can also choose to sit inside the theater if you want to get up close and see how much Patrick Myers actually looks like Mercury when he’s in costume. Regardless of where you want to sit that Saturday, click the get tickets button. This is an event you don’t want to miss.

There are plenty of Queen tributes out there, with some very talented bands. In fact, the remaining members of Queen give great performances, with Adam Lambert as the frontman. At the end of the day … he’s Adam Lambert, he’s not Freddie Mercury. Arguably, it’s been a good idea that Lambert doesn’t try to be Freddie. If you want to see the closest thing to Freddie that you can still watch live, that’s Patrick Myers. One of the main things that makes the Killer Queen experience unique is that these guys really play Queen on stage.

What they want you to see on Saturday, July 27th, at the Ravinia is Queen live! It’s Freddie Mercury; it’s Brian May before the gray hair. Another thing that Killer Queen have going for them is that they’ve been playing this act for years on end! Think of them as the cast of a long-standing play that has been on tour together for ages. You’re not seeing the actors anymore on stage. They’ve completely devoted themselves to giving life to the character. That’s pretty much what’s happened with Patrick Myers. He’s the closest thing to Freddie Mercury. Maybe Rami Maleck has something to say about that, but it’s one thing to play him in a movie; it’s another thing to take the character on tour.

Apart from playing the characters throughout the show, Killer Queen provides one of the best renditions of the popular songs from the band. It’s one of those concerts where, even if you’re just a casual fan, you’ll be able to sing along to all the songs. Freddie Mercury is going to have you screaming EEEEOOOO from the back of the theater with your sandwich in hand. This just sounds like a perfect way to spend a Saturday in Highland Park.

Inside the theater at Ravinia you’ll be able to interact with the performers who love to get up close to fans. As mentioned, Killer Queen wants to extract as much fan interaction as the real band. Those who’d like to experience it up close should make sure to get tickets inside the theater. On the other hand, if you’re keen to live out the scenario described at the beginning, stick to the gardens. In any case, make sure to click the get tickets button; Killer Queen is one of the few tribute concerts that’s known to sell out!
