The Killer QUEEN Experience
Formed in 2003, The Killer Queen Experience has risen from a Local Brisbane based Queen Cover Band to an International Touring Show and is Australia’s most sought-after Tribute Act today. Meeting Queen in 2020 is the highlight of their career! Persistence has paid off for Lead Singer John Blunt, original member and Freddie Mercury Impersonator for over 15 years, cementing John as the most recognised Freddie around the globe.
Originally known as “The King and Queen Show” (a tribute to Elvis & Queen), John found his talents entertaining guests at Warner Bros Movie World imitating characters such as Roy Orbison, Austin Powers, Elvis Presley and Freddie. Forgetting his costume fronting a Cover Band for a Halloween gig, John somehow accidentally dressed as Freddie and the rest is history!
