Queen fans, “we will rock you” at the San Mateo County Fair when Queen Nation takes the stage on Pride Family Day.
Queen Nation, a tribute to the music of Queen, is slated for June 10, during the nine-day San Mateo County Fair. This day has been designated Pride Family Day, when all children 12 and under will be admitted free, from opening until closing.
“The lines to see the movie Bohemian Rhapsody late last year are evidence of the timeless love for Queen’s music,” said Dana Stoehr, chief executive officer of the San Mateo County Event Center and Fair. “We are delighted that Queen Nation will bring Queen’s iconic music to our free concert series in June.”
There is little doubt among the pure rock community that the legendary band Queen and lead performer Freddie Mercury earn high ranks as one of the most powerful and iconic groups in rock history. Queen, the kings of arena rock, performed to packed stadiums around the globe for over two decades. Upon Mercury’s death in 1991, a huge void was left in the rock concert world, which to this day has not yet been matched. Queen Nation, a tribute to Queen, was formed in 2004.
The mission of the show is to carry on the musical torch and pay homage to the golden age of vintage Queen concerts. Queen Nation’s live 90-minute production of Queen’s greatest hits preserves the image, sound, and stage persona of vintage Queen. Audiences are amazed at the accuracy of Queen Nation’s live retrospective journey through such Queen songs as “We Will Rock You,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Are the Champions,” and “Another One Bites the Dust.”
All main stage concert general admission seating is free with fair admission, on an open seating, space-available basis. For reserved seating, the fair’s Gold Circle admission includes fair admission plus reserved prime seating in Fiesta Hall (main stage). Gold Circle tickets are just $40. Discount tickets for this year’s fair go on sale on March 11 at sanmateocountyfair.com.
