Queen tribute act The Bohemians come to Cresset in Peterborough

ALMOST 20 years after the death of Freddie Mercury, the music of Queen is coming to Peterborough.

Tribute act The Bohemians will rock The Cresset tomorrow (Friday) as part of its 2011 tour. The show is the 10th date of the band’s biggest national tour to date, with further dates planned until the 20th anniversary of Freddie’s death this November.

The landmark anniversary has added some additional poignancy to the tour, which also marks the 40th anniversary of Queen’s formation.

With a history of their own spanning 15 years The Bohemians are one of the longest established Queen tributes in the world.

The Bohemians is made up of Rob Comber as Freddie Mercury, Kevin Goodwin as John Deacon, Christopher Gregory as Brian May and Wayne Bourne as Roger Taylor.

Mr Comber believes the performance Queen, and in particular, Freddie Mercury gave, are almost as important as the music.

He says, “On the occasions I was lucky enough to see Queen, they really put on a great show which is what we try to do. They always wanted their fans to be well entertained as well as enjoying some outstanding music.”
