On Saturday Jan. 21st at 7:00 p.m., The Historic Hemet Theatre launches its new concert series with a tribute to Queen featuring Queen Nation. This band has appeared in top venues across the country, performing an amazing recreation of classic rock from across the decades of Queen hits.
The Queen legacy includes eighteen No. 1 albums and dozens of classic hits, including “Another One Bites The Dust,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Will Rock You,” “We Are The Champions,” “You’re My Best Friend,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” and “Killer Queen.” Fans of Queen are in for a great experience at this tribute event.
The members of Queen Nation are seasoned entertainers, creating the No.1 tribute to Queen in the nation. Members of the band include Mike McManus (guitar, vocals), Greg Finsley (vocals, piano), Parker Combs (bass), and Peter Burke (drums, vocals).
