Ultimate Queen Celebration

The Ultimate Queen Celebration starring Marc Martel! Marc Martel gained notoriety after videos highlighting his vocal similarity to Freddie Mercury went viral on YouTube and most recently for providing vocals for the Academy Award winning Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody.

Martel received an email from an industry pal with a link to a contest spearheaded by the actual members of Queen. At first, the front man of Canadian rockers Downhere almost passed on the opportunity, but with some prodding from his wife and additional friends, he casually cut a version of “Somebody To Love” in 2011, and now 30 million cumulative YouTube and Facebook views later, bolstered by an “Ellen” appearance, Martel was declared the victor. Even legendary Queen drummer Roger Taylor remarked to the Daily Record: “That voice. You listen, close your eyes and you think it’s Freddie. It’s really uncanny.”

Fast forward to 2017, and Martel is the ideal match for the Ultimate Queen Celebration, an explosive, attention-commanding tribute where some of the most iconic rock anthems of all time collide with a theatrical performance style and eye-popping production. At its core, the riveting show focuses on the extremely diverse body of the band’s greatest hits, from the grandiose “Bohemian Rhapsody” to the adrenaline-pumping “We Will Rock You,” the euphoric “We Are The Champions,” the funky “Another One Bites The Dust,” the stadium-shaking David Bowie collaboration “Under Pressure,” the soulful “Somebody To Love” and the swinging “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” (to name but a few from the steroid-stacked set list).

The concert will be held outdoors on the BOS Center Plaza. Gates will open at 6:00 pm and the show will begin at 7:00 pm. Tickets for the Ultimate Queen Celebration start at $29 for the general admission, standing room only plaza. Suite tickets which are located in BOS Center’s Plaza Parking garage will be $45 and come with access to private, suite level, cash bars. VIP Hanson Terrace tickets are $99, come with private cash bar, catered appetizers and a meet and greet with the artist. There is a $2 facility fee on top of all listed prices, and additional fees may apply depending on method of purchase.
