Queen Forever

Queen Forever, The Australian Queen Tribute Show is coming to Cabramatta this September!

On Sunday September 17, Queen Forever will be headlining the main stage of the much-anticipated annual Cabramatta Moon Festival.

The legendary Freddie Mercury is to be brought back to life by the dynamic Gareth Hill, whose electric energy, dramatic stage presence, and stellar vocals will certainly leave you awe-struck. Alongside him, Scott Bastian will impeccably replicate the legendary guitar solos and sound of Brian May, promising a tribute worthy of the original. The rhythm section sees Brad Hodgkinson delivering a masterful performance as Roger Taylor, while Darryn McLaughlin channels the solidity and reliability of John Deacon. Completing the line-up is the extremely gifted Danny Oakhill, emulating the invaluable contribution of Spike Edney, the unofficial fifth member of Queen.

Settle in for an evening filled with some of Queen’s most celebrated anthems, including “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Will Rock You,” “We Are the Champions,” “Somebody to Love,” and “Another One Bites the Dust.” This exhilarating sonic journey, performed with passion and intensity, offers you a unique chance to revisit the magic of Queen’s music.
