15.11.2019 The Miracle: A Night With Queen @ Kulttuuritalo, Helsinki

Almost 30 years after Freddie Mercury‘s death, the vocalist still is in our hearts and minds, and probably one of the most legendary singers ever. With that in mind, THE MIRACLE resurrected, the ultimate QUEEN tribute band fronted by Kimmo Blom (LEVERAGE). Check out our gallery here.

Cover bands and tribute nights are usually very popular because what drives ticket sales is that nostalgia breeds profit. If you can’t watch the actual band, perform a show, why not visit a tribute night. Fans can gladly feel nostalgic about their fandom and all the classics are usually being played by skilled musicians, with the same amount of energy. We heard songs like “We Will Rock You”, “Radio Gaga”, “The Show Must Go On”, “Fat Bottomed Girls”, “Bicycle”, and many more sang with as much dedication as QUEEN once did. The band took us on a trip through QUEEN‘s whole history with 23 songs, showcasing the ultimate highlights and many hits of the band. The great thing about the evening is that Kimmo Blom channeled his inner Freddie Mercury, not only in outfits, but also in his performance. Moving around like him, singing the songs he did, and yet still keeping his own identity, makes him what he really is: an excellent frontman. Often, his speeches in between the songs were also filled with a lot of humor, and it definitely won the audience over. Stepping in Freddie Mercury‘s shoes is not an easy job but Kimmo Blom excelled.

Overall, it was a great evening filled with a positive atmosphere amongst the crowd and a lot of nostalgic outstanding songs, performed by a great band of musicians who passionately played the music of their idols. If you have the chance to watch the QUEEN tribute night, make sure you attend one of their shows, you’ll be in for a ride.
