Last updated 2 years ago by Jon Wilkins

For all you lovers of music from the past, it’s time to Rock!

On Saturday 23 February 2019, Queen Forever will be appearing in Nieuwegein.

Freddie Mercury may no longer be with us, but Queen tribute band Queen Forever will pick up his mantle when they appear at Fletcher Hotel-Restaurant Nieuwegein-Utrecht.

Listen to the radio and we know that ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is always number 1 in the Top 2000 on Radio 2. Queen is still very popular, perhaps even the most popular band in music history.

During this concert you will feel as if you are back to the 70’s, 80’s & 90’s listening only to hits from Queens catalogue! This Dutch tribute band, famed acrossEurope, will not disappoint you.

The hits are almost too many to mention, but you will be able to dance to ‘Another One Bites The Dust’, ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’, ‘We Will Rock You’, ‘We Are The Champions’ and more!

The Bands website tells us more. 

Queen Forever are the premier Queen Tribute Band, they will shock everyone with their fantastic interpretation of the legendary British rock band ‘Queen’. The band performs 100% live and plays all your favourite ‘Queen’ songs during their two-hour set. Epic Queen-anthems such as: ‘Innuendo’, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and the mesmerizing ‘Barcelona’ are performed with passion and stellar ease.

Not only does the band mimic the sound of ‘Queen’, they dress like them too, giving the audience the full audiovisual experience and ‘Queen’ nostalgia.

Naturally, every great Queen Tribute needs a professional Freddie imitator. Our Freddie, in real-life Timothy Drake, competed on the Dutch RTL4-show “My name is..” in 2009 and took second place. Shortly thereafter the band was formed and in the following years toured The Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Great Britain, Germany and Mexico. Timothy even had the honor performing before the British Embassy in Kuwait, which is a true testament to his credibility as Freddie Mercury.

In 2016 ‘Queen Forever’ were asked to portray the story and musical life of Freddie Mercury in the Dutch theatre production ‘I Want to Break Free’ spanning fifty-five shows. It was such a huge success the production was renewed for a second season.

They’ve wowed tens of thousands of visitors and the audience is thrilled:

‘Phenomenal, Never seen such a great cover band, and I have seen many’

‘Enjoyed this amazing band’

‘I thought Freddie was lip-synching, but it’s all live!’

‘Brian May is sublime’

‘Highlights are ‘Innuendo’ and ‘Barcelona’

All in all, ‘Queen Forever’ is an act you have to see, hear and experience.
