A MUCH-PRAISED tribute act is coming to rock Bridport.

Mercury: Queen Tribute Band will play Bridport Arts Centre on Friday, May 10 at 7.30pm.

The act was declared winner of the National UK Tribute Awards. Their show will include all of Queen’s most popular hits, including Bohemian Rhapsody, Radio Gaga, We Are The Champions, We Will Rock You and more.

With a dynamic stage show that fully emulates the true charismatic appeal of rock's most flamboyant front man backed up by superbly crafted harmonies and intricate guitar work, Mercury faithfully and accurately recreate the distinctive Queen experience.

Freddie’s mum, the late Jer Bulsara, said: "Freddie was an original. He and Queen were the best. But now, in this new century ,Joseph, Glenn & Mercury are the next best thing."

Mercury was formed in 1998 and since then has gone on to play theatres, festivals and high profile shows across the UK and Europe – from Holland to Hungary and from Majorca through to the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. Other prestigious shows include headlining a New Year's Eve festival in Dubai, which was broadcast live to millions via MTV Asia as well as an exclusive concert for Queen's own Roger Taylor.
