Feel like a champion this weekend as a Queen tribute act struts its way to the borough.
Tribute act Killer Queen will be taking centre stage at the Queen's Theatre, Billet Lane, Hornchurch, this weekend to fans' delight.
Lead singer Patrick Myers said: "It's a very busy time for us right now.
"We're just back from America, going back out in June and all of July and again in October followed by a tour of Hungary as well as a ton of Uk and European dates in between.
"A lot of fun.
"We've toured for a long time now and know that people really love the music all over the world but with the film [Bohemian Rhapsody], a lot more people now know the Queen story.
The band first formed back in June 1993 where their first shows took place at the University of West London, following in the footsteps of the real Queen who had played there 21 years earlier.
The band's reputation continued to grow both in the UK and abroad and in 1999, they returned from a tour of Europe and Russia for an awards ceremony in Leicester Square, hosted by Suggs from Madness.
