10 years at Vagon

This October, 10 years have passed since Queenie’s first concert at Vagon, the cult club in Prague. The band performed there for the first time on October 7, 2007, and since then they have had shows at this venue with remarkable regularity, almost every month,. During this time, the band has become the most popular one at Vagon in terms of the numbers of visitors, with thousands of people having seen it during hundreds of hours of live music production. Thank you very much for your support, it keeps on motivating us to go on. This project is yours, too ;-)

We are attaching an illustrative collage – there was i.a. a cake from our wonderful fanclub and the Barcelona opera aria sung by the National Theater soprano Petra Alvarez with us.

Queenie are adding another show at the Kalich Theater!

Considering the great interest in our sold out concert at the Kalich Theater in Prague dedicated to the celebration of Freddie Mercury's life, which will take place on November 24, 2017, we have decided to do a nice thing for all those who will not be able to attend this event. For those of you who did not manage to purchase their tickets in time or would like to see this show twice, we are adding another one on December 4, 2017!

On both shows, we will for make début appearances with our Queen-style stage structure; in addition, we are already preparing some bits of Christmas sentiment for our December show. The opera soprano diva Petra Alvarez, soloist of the National Theater, will join as our guest, too.

Queenie performed on this stage, which belongs among the most famous and recognized ones in Prague, for the first time on April 13, 2017, having arrived here with the program of their Forever spring European tour. The concert received great acclaim, and so the band with the frontman Michael Kluch, who also appeared at the Kalich Theater in the main roles in RENT and Touha musicals, is returning here again half a year later.

Tickets available here.

On September 5th, 2017 Freddie Mercury would have celebrated his 71st birthday. And as already a tradition, on his birthday each year we hold the so-called Freddie for a Day event, where everyone can contribute.

Ještě před tím, než Hard Rock Cafe began to support this event worldwide. We are pleased that we can do something for the good cause again and that we will not be alone in this.

5th Anniversary of U Krále Václava IV. restaurant – July 27,.2017 – "with orchestra and choir"

Dear audience, this year it will be 5 years since our first appearance at U Krále Václava IV. in the Kunratice Forest in Prague, where we have had concerts every July since. Because of this we have decided to invite to the stage of this Prague summer scene the Czechoslovak Chamber Orchestra Prague, the Maranatha Gospel Choir and the soprano of the National Theater, Mrs. Petra Alvarez,. The concert will take place on July 27, 2017 and it will be the first time we present ourselves this way in Prague. We will play a usual rock concert which will be followed by the orchestral part with the chorus. This is the concept of a concert that we presented to the Brno audience last December in the sold out SONO Center. We believe you this is something you can really look forward to – just like we do.

Queenie finished their Spring Tour 2017 in Montreux, Switzerland

After a month, in May, Queenie ended their spring tour in the Swiss town of Montreux, which is closely associated with Queen and other artists who lived and recorded here. Queenie performed in Montreux at the Freddie For A Day Festival 2017, 9 years after having been the first Czech-Slovak performer to play as the headliner at one of the biggest Queen festivals, the Freddie Mercury Montreux Memorial Day 2008. During this year's spring tour, which counts 17 concerts, Queenie visited 7 European countries and for the first time also presented their mostly Scandinavian concert concept in the Czech Republic. The opening sold out concert which took place at J.K. Tyl Theater in Pilsen was not officially part of this sequence of concerts, but Queenie tried out their new playlist on it. The actual tour included the also sold out show at the Kalich Theater in Prague, where, together with Queenie, the soprano of the National Theater Petra Alvarez performed. Besides Switzerland and the Czech Republic, the tour included Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Spain.

Queenie have a new Roger! The circle is closing.

Ladies and gentlemen, we would like to inform you of a change behind the drums, namely that the band has a new member, Petr „Bali“ Balas. Welcome aboard! :-)

Last year we went through two involuntary member changes, when due to health reasons we were forced to find a new keyboardist literally from one day to another and after a thorough selection process we also got a new drummer. While (believe it or not :-) ) Michal David established himself on the keyboards and the band noticed a great contribution of his participation immediately, in the case of the drums things were not that easy. After almost 10 months we ended cooperation with Gleb Chuykov. We hereby thank Gleb and wish him lots of success.

With Bali, we have already done the final Norwegian part of our spring Scandinavian tour and the way he has caught up with the rolling train is great! The following brief profile also proves the fact that he is no slouch:

„Petr Baláš has been active on the music stage for already more than 12 years. He is a graduate of the Jaroslav Ježek Conservatory, and the drummer Václav Zima has been his long time lecturer and principal mentor, with whom he has taken private lessons. Petr is the company player of the #1 world brand of cymbals Zildjian, as well as the founder of LOLA band, with which he played for 6 years and won i.a. the Mercedes Benz Live Space Show and the Real League contest. He has participated in other projects too, such as the Tábor Superstar Band, Slovak Popcorn Drama band and others. He has also recorded a number of albums. In addition to those of the bands he played with, he also made recordings for the Sobi20, Lukrecia and Country Steel bands. Petr is also involved in pedagogical activities. He is currently preparing a video class in collaboration with and his new drumming textbook will be released in the summer of 2017. He teaches at the Sezimovo Ústí Art and Music School and Želivský Art and Music School in Prague.“
