On April 7, One Night of Queen, a Queen tribute band, performed at Glenside’s Keswick Theatre. The band captured the essence of seeing Queen perform live, from the songs and staging down to the looks, looking and dressing exactly like Queen. The stage effects added excitement to the show.
The energy throughout the theater was high as the band encouraged the audience members to be on their feet. The band seemed to only play the super upbeat songs, avoiding many deep cuts and slow songs to give the audience a break. There are more Queen songs than just the hits after all.
The lighting was a bit much at times, often shining into the audience members’ faces. Also, there was one point in “Bohemian Rhapsody” where the band stopped playing and a recording of Queen doing the song, which most bands do not do, but the audience was into it nonetheless.
