ONE of the top Queen tribute acts is set to belt out the legendary band’s hits at a concert in Skegness this weekend.

Mercury will stop off at the Embassy Theatre on Saturday, October 6 at 7.30pm.

And fans of Queen are in for a treat.

Mercury have toured for a decade and have even received a glowing recommendation from Freddie’s mum Jer Bulsara.

A spokesperson said: “After a decade on tour, Mercury have firmly established themselves as one of the world’s most authentic tributes to the legend that is Freddie Mercury and Queen.

“Over the last ten years, Mercury have performed to sell out audiences at prestigious venues across the world, playing to in excess of a million people - from Holland to Hungary and from Majorca to the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

“Other prestigious shows include headlining a New Year’s Eve festival in Dubai, which was broadcast live to millions via MTV Asia, as well as an exclusive concert for Queen’s own Roger Taylor.

“With the extraordinary vocal range and outstanding delivery of Joseph Lee Jackson as Freddie Mercury and the intricate guitar work of Glenn Scrimshaw as Brian May backed by superbly crafted harmonies and a driving rhythm section, this tour will include fantastic performances of the most popular Queen hits.

“These will include songs from the height of their reign, as well as some additional tracks from the band’s vast back catalogue,” they added.

The band’s performances are so strong that Freddie’s mum Jer Bulsara said, in 2010: “Freddie was an original, he and the boys were the best but now, in this new century, Joseph, Glenn and Mercury are the next best thing.”

Tickets for the show cost £18.50 for adults, £17.50 for over 60s and £10 for children.
