One Night of Queen with Gary Mullen & The Works is back on the road in the UK, with dates scheduled through February 2018 and more to come. The Queen tribute show, which has been touring since 2001, will make stops in Yeovil, Margate, Isle of Wight, Chesterfield, Frome, Evesham, Folkestone and more.
The show features Gary Mullen on lead vocals. Gary has been a fan of Queen his entire life, but his career as a Freddie Mercury imitator didn’t start until 2000 with his appearance on Stars in Their Eyes. He was the winner of the Live Grand Final with 864,838 votes – more than double the votes of the second-place winner. Gary obtained a record number of votes for the show.
After the show, Gary performed as a solo artist and received rave reviews out the gate. In 2002, he launched One Night of Queen and started his band The Works.
The band performed more than 150 shows per year in the first five years and played in a number of different countries.
Brian May invited Gary to attend the Queen & Paul Rodgers show over in Cardiff and was introduced to Brian personally after the show.
Along with his successful tribute show, Gary has also recorded voiceovers for computer games, radio and television. He has also recorded an album with original material, entitled Blood, Sweat and Beers.
