Rock fans traditionally hold up lighters at concerts during ballads so that heartbroken moths know where they can go and, for once, not be judged. Get drawn in with this GrouponLive deal to One Night of Queen at the The Rosemont Theatre. For $25, you get one ticket for balcony seating on Friday, March 8, at 8 p.m. (up to a $47.20 value, including all fees). Doors open at 7 p.m.
To recreate the legendary rock group Queen, you need a tough rhythm section, a thoroughbred lead-guitar player, and a singer capable of hitting notes over the moon, which is exactly what Gary Mullen and The Works do in their One Night with Queen performances. Gary’s ability to ape Freddie Mercury’s seemingly inimitable voice, mustache, and snug white pants made him the winner of Britain’s Stars in their Eyes, a television program featuring celebrity impersonators. Along with guitarist David Brockett, who blows back wigs with his imitation of Brian May’s six-string histrionics, the band celebrates more than a decade of overpowering international audiences as its epochal Queen review storms Rosemont. Expect hits such as “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Fat Bottomed Girls,” and “Don’t Stop Me Now” executed with operatic intensity, along with a dazzling light show that accompanies the marathon performance.
