Queen Tribute Band – The Crown Jewels – Comes To Pioneer Place
When it comes to musical duos, there are only a handful in the history of popular music that are worth mentioning. Among them Steve Perry and Neal Schon, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, John Lennon and Paul McCartney, and Eddie Van Halen and Sammy Hagar (yes, I said Sammy Hagar. Not David Lee Roth. Sorry – not sorry.)
But there’s one duo whose chemistry I feel is constantly overlooked. I’m talking about Brian May and Freddie Mercury. Of course, Freddie received most of the praise in Queen, but Brian May deserves his due.
Queen would be nothing without those legendary guitar riffs. Between Freddie’s one of a kind operatic rock vocals and Brian’s flamboyant and adventurous guitar licks, these guys created some of the most legendary sonic atmospheres in the history of rock.
Unfortunately, for obvious reasons the iconic duo will never share the stage. But don’t fret, you can still see all of those awesome tunes performed live if you catch “The Crown Jewels” this spring at Pioneer Place here in St. Cloud.
They’re one of the best Queen tributes around, and I don’t say that lightly. There are two back to back performances. The first is on May 15th and then again the next night on May 16th, both at 7:30 pm. You can get a ticket online now for as cheap as $31.
