Killer Queen formed back in June 1993. Their first public shows were at London University, following in the footsteps of the real Queen who had played their first shows their 21 years earlier. By 1995, Killer Queen’s UK popularity had grown to such an extent they secured a residency in London’s Strand Theatre attracting nationwide BBC coverage – the first tribute to have a show in the West End. The band’s reputation continued to grow both in the UK and abroad. In 1999, they won the award for “Worldwide Best Tribute Band” at an awards ceremony hosted by Suggs from Madness and in 2001, scored a number 1 hit when they were asked to recreate Queen’s harmonies for “The Real Life” with Fatboy Slim.  In 2016, Killer Queen set their sights on America including the awe-inspiring Red Rocks Arena in Colorado – one of the country’s most prestigious venues. The Beatles, Springsteen, U2 have all played there and the band is delighted it’s become a regular fixture on Killer Queen’s tour sheet.

ABBA The Concert continues to be the top ABBA tribute group in the world, dazzling all who see their fantastic performance while playing the most iconic hits from ABBA, including “Mama Mia,” “S.O.S.,” “Money, Money, Money,” “The Winner Takes All,” “Waterloo,” “Gimme, Gimme, Gimme,” and “Dancing Queen.” Many critics agree, ABBA The Concert is the most amazing and authentic ABBA tribute show in the world.
