Killer Queen Band has been paying tribute to Queen for Companies, Festivals and Associations for the past 25 years! The band's lead singer, Patrick Myers says, "It's been amazing. That first show way back in June 1993 changed my life. We thought our band would last maybe a summer at the most. But singing and performing these songs - it's a very addictive thing ! The concerts grew and grew and we've ended up playing and selling out the same arenas that Queen played at their peak. It's been quite a surreal ride."

Killer Queen formed back in June 1993. Their first public shows were at London University, following in the footsteps of the real Queen who had played their first shows there 21 years earlier.
By 1995 Killer Queen's UK popularity had grown to such an extent they secured a residency in London's Strand Theatre attracting nationwide BBC coverage - the first tribute to have a show in the West End .
Even though the band never had any connection to Queen officially their reputation continued to grow both in the UK and abroad. In 1999 they returned from a tour of and Europe and Russia for an awards ceremony in Leicester Square, hosted by Suggs from Madness. He announced they had won the award for “Worldwide Best Tribute Band”
The band also scored a number one hit when they they were asked to recreate Queen's harmionies for “The Real Life” with Fatboy Slim in 2001.
Killer Queen toured into their second decade, the audiences grew. In 2005 they played AhoyStadium, where the reformed Queen would be performing only a few months later.
The next year Killer Queen joined forces with Bjorn Again and The Bootleg Beatles for a Waverly Stadium show in Edinburgh. It was this performance that led to the band being selected to represent Queen in a re-staged tribute Live-Aid concert held by Sir Bob Geldof. They performed with him at his arena charity concert to raise funds for the homeless.
2009 saw a triumphant return to a sold out Ahoy stadium with their acclaimed “Queen Spectacular”production and another award, this time from Sweden's Vasteras concert hall “Best Concert of The Year 2009”.
