Queen Nation
A Tribute To The Music Of Queen
Saturday, November 17 / 7:30 p.m.
LA-Z-BOY CENTER, MEYER THEATER
RESERVED SEATING: $25
VIP SEATING:  $35*

Queen NationThere is little doubt among the pure rock community that the legendary band Queen and lead performer Freddie Mercury earn high ranks as one of the most powerful and iconic groups in rock history. Queen, the kings of arena rock, performed to packed stadiums around the globe for over two decades. Freddie took showmanship by a rock front man to a new untapped level and was undisputedly crowned the lord of arena rock. He mesmerized audiences with his charismatic energy and larger than life stage persona. Upon his death in 1991, a huge void was left in the rock concert world, which to this day has not yet been matched. 

Queen Nation’s live 90-minute production of Queen’s greatest hits preserves the image, sound, and stage persona of vintage Queen. Audiences are amazed at the accuracy of Queen Nation’s live retrospective journey through such Queen songs as We Will Rock You – Bohemian Rhapsody – We Are The Champions – Crazy Little Thing Called Love – You’re My Best Friend – Another One Bites The Dust – Under Pressure and many more. They have performed in front of thousands of people at casinos, fairs, festivals and private affairs.

*VIP Seating includes balcony seating, munchies and cash bar.

LA-Z-BOY CENTER, MEYER THEATER
RESERVED SEATING:  $27

Pink Floyd's The Wall is one of the most ambitious and controversial album projects of the 70's. It spawned a seminal movie, and provided the rebel anti-establishment anthem for a whole generation. This is truly one of the greatest classic rock albums of all time. 

The Classic Albums Live experience is not a tribute band, but an eerily accurate note for note, cut for cut rendition of the entire album. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear one of the greatest albums from the seventies recreated live on the Meyer Theater Stage

*VIP Seating includes balcony seating, munchies and cash bar.
