Tribute Mania exploded onto The Palais Theatre’s iconic rock ‘n roll stage with one of the most incredible lineups of tribute acts anywhere in the world on September 3rd, 2016 to a sell out crowd!!
The formula was simple. Sound like the artist, perform like the artist and look like the artist …then have a hell of a lot of fun doing it!
The amazing lineup was as follows:
Bjorn Again – The World’s No.1 ABBA Show
Queen Forever – The Australian Queen Tribute Show – The Closest You Will Ever Get to a 1980’s Queen Concert
Elton Jack Show– The World’s Most Loved Elton John Show
The Beatnix – The World’s First Beatles Tribute Show and Still Going Strong
and introducing The Spicy Girls – Australia’s First Spice Girls Tribute Show
A spectacular fully-staged show, Tribute Mania was like no other tribute show you have ever seen. Paying tribute to five of the biggest bands in the world from the 1960s to the 2000s the crowd experienced the best songs ever written as they were meant to be heard, live and in concert. At Australia’s No.1 theatre concert venue, the Palais Theatre, you can expect big sound, big lighting, big performances and five times the fun. And those who made it to the sell out show were not disappointed!!!
Queen Forever were the highlight of the night! The band ripped through 40 mins of blistering Queen Hits back to back and had the crowd in a frenzy for their whole set! Gareth Hill as Freddie Mercury tore the Palais apart, running up & down the aisles, and jumping into audience members laps dressed in Freddie’s iconic I Want To Break Free outfit, silicone boobs ‘n all. Queen Forever really took it to the crowd and with such hits as Radio Ga Ga, We Will Rock You, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Somebody To Love, Under Pressure and Bohemian Rhapsody up their sleeves, it was a smorgasbord of Queen!!
There have been calls for the event to be repeated and who knows whether this one off, incredible experience will be revived!!
There has been talks of an Australian Tour so stay tuned, because if this returns, you don’t want to miss it!!!
