Almost Queen: A Tribute to Queen matches the original band’s vocal layering and studio precision with the elaborate lighting, special effects and costumes to create an uncanny live concert experience for even the biggest Queen fan. Lead singer Joseph Russo, who channels Freddie Mercury, is also a Broadway veteran whose powerful voice has earned him stage and musical success around the world. Almost Queen band members have toured internationally with groups such as Thin Lizzy, Dee Snider and others. From “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “We Are the Champions” to “We Will Rock You,” “Fat Bottomed Girls” and “Somebody to Love,” Almost Queen’s repertoire spans all the biggest hits and more. New York’s Highline Ballroom hosts the tribute band on what would have been Mercury’s 69th birthday in a show titled Freddie for a Day.
