In cooperation with the show & stage designer Martin Hruška, who has worked on projects for e.g. Leoš Mareš, Marpo, Lucie and even Madonna, the music of Queen will come to life again on the pompous stage worthy of Freddie Mercury himself.

Freddie Mercury will come back to life at O2 Arena during the Queen Relived show

Fans of one of the greatest music bands of all the time, Queen, can look forward to a big event. On May 15, 2020, the concert show named Queen Relived will take place at O2 Arena in Prague, commemorating the glory of the band that changed the course of rock music history. Popular hits of the British icon will be played by the Czech band Queenie, which is considered one of the best tribute bands in the world. The music experience will be supported by an impressive light and multimedia show. Concert tickets will become available in the coming days.

The whole concert show will be a celebration and a commemoration of the famous band. “With this concert, we want to create an atmosphere which the audience would experience at a real concert with Freddie Mercury. We decided to create a stage worthy of concerts of the world's biggest bands,” says Martin Zoubek on behalf of the organizing agency.

Famous songs, which are still aired by radio stations worldwide, will be played by the Czech band Queenie. It is one of the most successful and recognized tribute groups ever. They play the songs of Queen in authentic arrangements and costumes, and play them like no one else. The band Queenie was formed thirteen years ago and since then has had over 1 200 concerts, one fourth of them abroad, including several tours e.g. in Scandinavia or Belgium, a show in Vietnam, a performance at the famous Montreux Jazz Festival, where Queen played in the Eighties, and concerts at the birthday celebration of the British Queen Elizabeth II or of Dominik Hašek.

“We have state-of-the-art equipment, lights and large screens. It will be the biggest concert ever performed in our „tribute“ genre. We have involved the show and stage designer Martin Hruška, who is a worldwide recognized professional and who in the past worked for the biggest stars, including Madonna,” says Michael Kluch, frontman of the band, whose portrayal of Freddie Mercury can give the goosebumps to the audience.

The show has big ambitions. In the future, the band plans to go on a European and world tour with it to further spread the legacy of the legendary Queen. With a bombastic stage design and songs in their original arrangements and tunes – which is nearly impossible, considering Mercury's phe­nomenal vocal range – this is a plan that must work out.

Hruška's ambitious scene design for the upcoming Queen Relived show features not only a giant stage but also a „bridge“ in the form of two long arrows stretching through the entire hall. Thanks to that, the audience will have the musicians practically within arm‘s reach. The lighting design of the concert will make use of the latest technologies and methods.

Queen Relived show will take place at O2 Arena in Prague on May 15, 2020. Tickets will be available from September 11, 2019 on the Ticketportal network in the price range from 990 CZK to 1 890 CZK.

Queenie at the legendary Montreux Jazz Festival

Queen, David Bowie, Phil Collins, Deep Purple and other prominent musicians have performed here during the 53-year history of this legendary Swiss festival. It is an immense honor for us to be a part of it now. We are happy and proud to have participated in this event along with this year's guests incl. Elton John, Sting, Slash, Tom Jones, Janet Jackson, ZZ Top and Quincy Jones.

This year, on July 6th, a new concert stage moving across the whole Geneva lake, known as the „Rock Boat“, was unveiled – and there, in the middle of the lake under the Alps, we played the premiere show as the main band on its deck. We became the first ever tribute band to perform at this festival. It was a marvelous experience, which became even more special when the first tones of the Bohemian Rhapsody resounded in front of the statue of Mercury, as if the captain had read our playlist. A very intense and unforgettable moment. And for the song Under Pressure we had a special guest, amazing Milan Šatník!

Montreux is an awesome place, which many bands and artists (including Queen) visited to live, create and record. We had already performed here twice before, participating in Freddie Mercury memorials in 2008 and in 2017. This year, however, it was our first time here at an event not directly related to Queen.

We would like to thank everyone and especially our wonderful audience. We are happy!

Freddie the musical has closed

On March 19, 2019 the musical performance of Radek Brzobohatý Theater, Freddie, was played for the last time in the completely full theater in Jablonec nad Nisou.

Under Karel Janák direction, a rather sharp script turned into a remarkable work of art, mainly thanks to the superb interpretation of the legendary band‘s songs, which were played live by Queenie, one of the world's most renowned Queen tribute bands. Their frontman, Michael Kluch, starred as Freddie Mercury, and together with the band, Jiří Korn (band manager’s repre­sentative), and other protagonists they presented a fascinating, breathtaking performance full of emotions. The artists on the packed stage were rewarded with a thunderous final applause including a standing ovation. This last performance of the musical, organized outside of Prague, was a somewhat secret but very pompous farewell to the audience.

We have asked Michael Kluch, who plays the lead role as Freddie Mercury: What was behind such an unexpected end?

“I'm very sad about it, both for myself and the band and for the other artists who spent a lot of time and energy preparing this performance and expected the result of their effort to last. It is obvious that none of the performers can influence the copyright factors. That is purely a matter of production.”

Am I to understand that the theater‘s copyright ended with this performance?

“We don't even know exactly how it was done with the copyright. We know only that there was some conflict regarding an infringement of the copyright in this performance, which is why today it was probably the last time we played it. A new version is being prepared. The new script’s concept would not need the approval of the Queen group copyright holders, but for now it does not seem promising.

Is the script not good?

“I don't want to evaluate the script as such, but Queen without Queen?! That's nonsense to me. Culture is supposed to entertain and enrich people, not to look for ways to bypass some rules – that's not how we want to be. With the band, we perform all over the world and we do care how people abroad see us and what they say about us. If we want to be a proud nation, we can't just constantly work around things in some cunning ways.”

So will you and Queenie not take part in the next version?

“I don’t think so at the moment. We are proud of our previous work on the musical, we enjoyed doing it and we would be glad to continue with the original version. However, if it‘s true that the authors‘ consent has never been issued at all, our efforts to carry on with this project would most likely be pointless. As I have already mentioned, we cannot, and indeed do not want to, participate in something that infringes copyright.”

What’s the situation with the copyright and Queenie?

“For organizing concerts, the consent of the authors is not necessary – only the organizer of each event where we play pays the authors royalties according to the rules. We do not need to handle that part.”

What are you preparing in the near future?

“We are planning a lot of concerts both in our country and around the world, even though, unfortunately, we cannot be everywhere. In April we will play in Sweden and Costa Rica, but Prague fans can enjoy our show on April 16, from 19:00, at Retro Music Hall. In May, besides Denmark and Prague, we will bring our Queen Relived show to Olomouc, Pilsen and České Budějovice, where the concert tickets are already sold out. I can't remember all the concerts we've arranged, but we will also play in other cities, so hopefully there will be something for every fan. We are also preparing one special pearl, but that one is still a secret.”

Which concert are you looking forward to most?

“We look forward to all our concerts, and we enjoy them to the fullest. If I should name just one though, I am thinking of our most recent addition – we have been invited to the legendary Montreux Jazz Festival, with Sir Elton John as its main star this year.

Michael Kluch as a guest on Všechnopárty

Lately you could read or watch several dozen interviews with Michael in media of various kinds, and this week he‘s appeared on the Czech Television already twice. After the TV show 168 hodin, he accepted Karel Šíp‘s invitation to the cult talk show Všechnopárty!

This was a slightly different kind of interview – see for yourself in the link below :-)

Queen‘s stage came alive in Brno

The crowded Sono hall in Brno witnessed a spectacular concert by Queenie on Friday. During the show, fans could enjoy not only the music, but also a unique stage looking as if it came straight from the set of The Miracle music video by Queen. Thanks to the perfect combination of music and visual components, an amazing atmosphere accompanied the whole concert.

“This year we have already had 150 concerts in 20 countries around the world. The one at Sono was our concert of the year, a sort of summarization. We wanted the audience to receive a unique experience, and it worked out. Two years ago we had a sold-out concert with the Czechoslovak Chamber Orchestra Prague and the Children's Choir Brno here. We wished to bring something new and with this in mind we designed a stage matching the one of Queen to complement the unique performance,” said Michael Kluch, the band's frontman.

The band Queenie – world Queen tribute band represents the absolute top of their genre. More than a thousand spectators could enjoy the proof thereof at the sold-out Sono hall in Brno. The band played a two-hour concert with thunderous unstoppable ovation from the audience. The show was further escalated with the song Barcelona, for which the National Theater soloist Petra Alvarez joined Queenie on stage. Then the fans asked for three more songs. We Will Rock You, Friends Will Be Friends and We Are The Champions were already sung in unison by the whole hall.

The concert had been sold out since the end of summer and because of the ongoing interest the band has decided to do two shows at Sono next year, on December 5th and 6th, 2019. In addition, Queenie will have concerts in other Czech cities and in many places abroad. Besides the spring and autumn Scandinavian tour, the band has accepted a Central American tour invitation that will begin on April 20, 2019 in Costa Rica, exactly 27 years since the commemorative concert honored Freddie Mercury in Wembley, London.

Queenie got main role in a new musical about Freddie

In April this year, the Radek Brzobohatý Theater will present a musical novel called Freddie by the director Karel Janák, inspired by the life story of one of the greatest musical icons of the 20th century that has conquered the whole world with its charisma and unique voice. Speech is about the frontman of the legendary Queen Freddie Mercury, whose genius has brought him to the top of glory, but also on the road to destruction.

Queenie in this newly prepared musical was given the main role. Michael Kluch will perform as Freddie and the rest of the band will perform the rest of the Queen. It will be a completely live musical accompaniment, which is not always a matter of course on the Czech scene, and Queenie will take care of it. In this unique theater show will also perform by Jiří Korn, Rudolf Hrušínský junior, Simona Postlerová and other leading musical actors.

Michael is already performing in another performance about Freddie Mercury. This is the dance musical Freddie: The King of Queen, written by Libor Vaculík with Václav Kopta and Petr Malásek. It is presented in the Theater J.K.Tyl in Pilsen and Michael also performs the role of Mercury. But the new production of Karel Janák is conceived as a musical performance with all the elements that belong to the musical.

The cast of Freddie musical: Freddie – Michael Kluch Manager – Jiří Korn / Ernesto Čekan Journalist – Rudolf Hrušínský junior Brian – Roman Říčař / Roman Tomeš Prenter – Přemysl Pálek / Lukáš Kumpricht Moralist – Simona Postlerová / Tereza Nekudová Mary – Romana Goščíková / Charlotte Doubravová
