Mother Mercury (BE)

More info

Mother Mercury, Europe's most authentic Queen tribute, pays tribute to the greatest band in rock history: Queen!

That is not entirely without obligation. You need a killer band and a singer who can sing a microphone to its breaking point. Sonny Vande Putte is that singer. Diehard Queen fan and owner of a voice that effortlessly makes your hair stand on end.

Sonny didn’t choose the easy way out by putting on a fake mustache. Mother Mercury studied Queen with a magnifying glass. After analyzing every detail of these icons, they got to work! The songs, the sound, the harmony, the clothing, the movements, the gear, the energy,... With every performance, these gentlemen confirm why they can call themselves the very best.

Freddie Mercury is, without a doubt, still the greatest showman there ever was. This Belgian Queen tribute band ensures that you will never forget it by performing an overwhelming show with that famous Queen thunder and sound! During this exciting performance you can scream along to unforgettable hits such as 'Don't stop me now', 'Radio Ga Ga', 'Somebody to love', 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and many more!
