The legendary Queen
tribute band, Ultimate Queen
Celebration, starring Marc Martel, brings Queen's unmatched hits to The Event Center at SugarHouse Casino on Friday, Oct. 11, at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 12, and cost from $39 to $59.
Martel received rave reviews for his striking vocals in "Bohemian Rhapsody," in which his voice resembled the late Freddie Mercury's unforgettable sound in the Queen
biopic movie. Ultimate Queen
Celebration performs timeless tracks — everything from "Bohemian Rhapsody," "We Will Rock You
" and "We Are the Champions" to "Another One Bites the Dust," "Under Pressure
" and "Somebody to Love."
Before creating Ultimate Queen
Celebration, Martel was hand-selected by Queen
Taylor and Brian May to front their official tribute show, The Queen
Extravaganza. The Canadian-born singer incorporates a theatrical performance with the heart pounding music Queen
fans know and love.
Prior to performing the iconic rock anthems, Martel began his career as a member of the Canadian rock group Downhere. After touring around the globe for over a decade with the acclaimed band, he joined The Queen
Extravaganza. His "Somebody to Love" video went viral with 30 million YouTube and social media views that also landed him a guest spot on "Ellen."
Other upcoming concerts in The Event Center include 98 Degrees
on Saturday, July 27; Herman's Hermits
on Friday, August 16; and The Alan Parsons Live Project on Friday, Sept. 27. All SugarHouse Casino Event Center performances are at 8 p.m. Tickets and more information are available at SugarHouseCasino.com.
