Ultimate Queen Tribute
The Ultimate Queen Celebration is an evening you'll be talking about long after the lights go down. It's dozens of songs that Queen made famous including Radio Gaga, Tie Your Mother Down, Fat Bottomed Girls, Killer Queen, Somebody to Love, Bohemian Rhapsody and more.
It’s simple: Queen’s Roger Taylor and Brian May handpicked singer Marc Martel to take on the lead vocals for their Queen tribute tour known as the Queen Extravaganza.
If that isn't a personal endorsement for this amazing artist, then we're not sure what is. His audition video of "Somebody to Love" garnered 13 million views on YouTube. Marc not only sounds dead-on like Freddie Mercury, but he embodies the heart-and-soul Freddie poured into every song that he performed.
