All the trimmings are there – Mercury’s iconic stage presence, flamboyance, theatrics and energy of the band are all captured by Thomas Crane and the Bohemian Rhapsody tribute band in their performances. With a sold out run of shows in 2019, hot of the back of the hugely successful Bohemian Rhapsody movie, they’re bringing a whole new show where they’ll be showcasing Queen’s hits from the 70s all the way through to the 90s.

Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody will perform all the great hits like We Will Rock You, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, We Are The Champions, Radio Ga Ga, A Kind of Magic, I Want To Break Free, Another One Bites the Dust, Bohemian Rhapsody.

“Everything is here, right down to the trademark cheeky banter and singing contests between Freddie and his audience,” Crane says. “Bohemian Rhapsody manage to take everything that made a Queen show unique, and bring it back to life before your very eyes and ears.”
