Calling All Queen Fans: A tribute to Freddy Mercury comes to the Fox Theatre this Sunday

The music is “Queen” however “Mercury” is a story about Freddie’s life. It’s intimate, personal and operatic. Freddie’s dream album was “Barcelona.” He loved opera and always wanted to perform with Montserrat Caballe. “Mercury” takes that inspiration and blends it into an unforgettable concert experience. This Sunday, December 1st, the show will come to the Fox Theatre.

International opera star Terry Barber, a former member of the two-time Grammy Award winning group “Chanticleer, beautifully executes Freddie Mercury’s range. “We’re here to tell a story, about fame, decadence, triumph and tragedy,”says Barber.  “About a man who had it all and could never have enough! It’s a story about music that made the world shake, stomp, chant, and cheer. It’s a story about a man who helped a generation learn to rock!”

Barber’s most recent album, was nominated for six Grammy Awards and he’s considered the world’s best countertenor with a 4 octave range {like Freddie} and has performed for the Metropolitan Opera, Moscow’s Svetlanov Hall, and at Carnegie Hall. Jonathan Cummings {Drums, Vocalist, Guitarist} performed and toured with Barry Manilow and is the creator of “The Troubadour’s Journey.”

Grace Field {Vocalist, Pianist} is a member of the Grammy nominated “Broadway Inspirational Voices” and performs as a soloist for the “United Nations” and Lincoln Center.

Don Carr {lead guitar} for the Oakridge Boys for 25 years played thousands of concerts worldwide from the White House to 50,000 seat arenas and has performed on numerous national and international TV specials.

Bob “Bones” Moltedo {bass guitar} considered a “musician’s musician” plays the bass with flawless virtuosity. Whenever a national touring act needs a bass player they hire “Bones,” who has over fifty years of experience playing with some of the world’s most talented musicians including the “Santana” brothers.
