The show Your Face Sounds Familiar (YFSF) of ABS-CBN is very popular and audiences started to appreciate the act of impersonation. Long time before the success of YFSF, there is a similar talent show called Stars In Their Eyes, which aired on British television from 1990 to 2006, wherein non-celebrity contestants were asked to impersonate showbiz stars. It became one of Britain’s most successful show, attracting around 13 million viewers for the live grand finale at the end of each series.
One of the series winners of Stars In Their Eyes is Gary Mullen. His spot-on imitation of the legendary Freddie Mercury of the band Queen was phenomenal.
In 2001, Queen was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. That same year, the theatrical and mesmeric show One Night of Queen was set in motion by Gary Mullen and his band The Works as homage to perhaps the greatest rock band of all time.
Since then, Gary Mullen and The Works have been touring the world to bring back to life the timeless rock anthems of Queen. Their two-hour energy-filled concert never fails to amaze their audience that had toddlers and grandparents dancing inside the concert halls and venues.
On October 24 and 25, Filipinos will now have a chance to see One Night of Queen. After successful shows in Europe, New Zealand and the USA, Solaire Resorts & Casino, MKFAE Productions, Inc. and Royale Chimes Concerts and Events Inc. are bringing the show to Manila for the first time from October 24 to 25, with 2 massive shows.
Mullen gained popularity when he won the competition show Stars in Their Eyes with his spot-on imitation of Mercury’s vocals and performance, and has been touring with his band around the globe since then. Aptly coined the world’s premiere Queen tribute band, Gary Mullen and the Works is guaranteed to rock you.
