Freddie Mercury’s 73rd Birthday

Today’s Throwback Thursday celebrates what would have been Freddie Mercury’s 73rd Birthday. On the 5th September 1946 Freddie Mercury was born. A British singer, songwriter and lead vocalist of the rock Band Queen. Regarded as one of the greatest lead singers in the history of rock music he was known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range.

‘One Night of Queen’ is a touring stage show paying tribute to Queen and is headed by Freddie Mercury imitator Gary Mullen who had previously won the talent show Stars in Their Eyes with his vocal and visual imitation of Mercury.
After winning Stars In Their Eyes in 2000 by receiving a record breaking number of votes for the show, Mullen began touring with his band The Works, putting on a sell-out tribute show.

In 2017 they rocked the 8 Day Weekend Marquee on the Thursday Night to a packed audience which was regarded by many as the best night of the week.
Next year they return to headline the opening Saturday and we can’t express how excited we are to have Gary Mullen & The Works Official back for the 2020 event!
