Four amazing musicians and life-long Queen fans keeping the tradition of Queen's music alive

 

Due to popular demand from the enormous devoted Legion of Queen fans, we are proud to present the Queen tribute act show aptly named QUEEN LEGION. It's a live, modern-day, musically stellar tribute to the music of Queen. The 90-minute show endeavors to capture and emulate the energy, spirit, essence, and soul of what Queen and the late, great legendary frontman Freddie Mercury were all about, as interpreted by frontmen Fernando Castro or JR Severn, and the QL band. Depending on the region, date, and availability, either cast member is equally capable of delivering an outstanding performance on stage, as each singer brings their own unique entertainer qualities to the table.

Fernando Castro is the first-ever Freddie Mercury tribute artist to headline on the Las Vegas Strip for Legends in Concert. He has successfully completed three Las Vegas residencies, singing LIVE six nights a week at the Tropicana, and has toured extensively around the world. Fernando has received praise and acclaim for his portrayal of Freddie in numerous publications, including Las Vegas Magazine, the Las Vegas Review Journal, and South Beach Magazine. He is painstakingly meticulous when performing and outfitting himself in his multiple colorful custom-designed Queen-era-style costumes.

JR Severn is an amazing Southern California vocalist in his own right, with numerous years of experience in a handful of Modern Rock projects, as well as fronting various bands and logging session work throughout Los Angeles. Severn’s unique vocal versatility, with off-the-charts vocal range, has been skillfully performing in various Modern Rock projects in and around Los Angeles over the last five years. He welcomed the challenge to sing Queen songs, as one of his all-time favorite bands when he began his musical career, was Queen fronted by Freddie Mercury.

Queen Legion is an authentic tribute rendition of the original four-piece band Queen. They utilize full harmonies along with multiple matching period Queen costumed attire. The performance showcases the bulk of Queen’s library of greatest hits, recreating an early vintage Queen concert format. The presentation is meant to be realistic, authentic, and reminiscent of the lost but not forgotten arena rock show, honoring and paying homage to one of the greatest lead performers, Freddie Mercury, and the band Queen, who are unquestionably one of the greatest rock bands of all time.

Each member of the band is an established top-tier professional musician in their own right, having gained valuable stage experience in various other ongoing musical projects both past and present. Together, they harmonize as a unit like birds and perform with impeccable detail, paying homage and giving the respect due while honoring the music of Queen. The formation of Queen Legion came to fruition with one thought in mind: to supply concertgoers another opportunity to listen to music by arguably one of the greatest Iconic Arena rock bands of all time. The ultimate goal is to hopefully deliver and keep the music of Queen alive and strong for the numerous fans of all ages to enjoy for years to come. In summary, Queen Legion’s main objective is to simply expose and/or gain more fans to the music of Queen.

We hope you enjoy the show, as you will hear Queen's timeless classics such as: Bohemian Rhapsody, Fat Bottomed Girls, Somebody To Love, We Will Rock You, We Are The Champions, Killer Queen, Another One Bites The Dust, and many more.
