A Brief History…
Having played together for more years than they care to remember; and realising that the Queen songs that they performed received rapturous approval, as opposed to the songs of other artistes, B-fifteen, as they were then known, decided to embark on a monumental task – To recreate the best, most talented rock band EVER.
In 1993 QEII formed to pay tribute the World’s No.1 band. The arduous task of coordinating lighting, image, clothes, make-up (Yes, make-up! If QEII do a job, the job is done professionally throughout!), mannerisms and not least, by any means, the harmonies and music of the greatest band in the world. The Stoke based band rehearsed behind closed doors for twelve months to perfect the show – The 1986 Magic Tour.
QEII are now critically acclaimed as “The UK’s top Tribute to Freddie Mercury & Queen”
The rest, as they say, is history.
