TAQTS @ The Venue in Townsville review by Jazmin Malcolm

Posted by admin Category: Reviews



The audience could barely contain their excitement – or their singing voices – as the Australian Queen Tribute show rocked out the stage at The Venue on Saturday night.

The five piece Tribute Band are no strangers to The Venue, with this being their second gig in as many years.

What makes the band so special is that they play all of Queen’s songs in their original key and they do not use backing tracks.

The audience got the chance to relive their hay day as they crowded around the stage, some even being lucky enough to dance and “make the rockin’ world go round!” with the band on stage.

Gareth Hill as Freddie mercury is truly something that has to be seen to be believed, with his incredible vocal likeness and energetic stage antics, he certainly kept the crowd entertained well into the night.

The crowd was only too happy to sing along to such great hits as “Another one Bites the dust” and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”.

The energy in the room was unrivaled however, when the opening notes of all time favourite “Bohemian Rhapsody” started to play.

The band really captured the essence of Queen’s ability to “mix and mingle” song genres whilst still boasting an incredible energy.

Here’s hoping they’ll be back again next year, for what I expect to be a fully phenomenal show!

The Queen Tribute Show was backed up by equally awesome support band Supersonic Sex Machine, who got the crowd going with great modern hits.

Stay tuned for the next big show, “Something about Kate” on the 21st of June. Tickets on sale now from Ticketek.
