Picnic in the Park: A Kind of Magic featuring
Killer Queen Alan Price Saturday 16th July (by kind permission of Oundle School)
at Heron Rogers Field, Oundle, Northamptonshire
Concert ends 10.55pm.
The evening will culminate in a spellbinding show of fireworks by 1605 Fireworks.
Best known for tracks such as House of the Rising Sun and I’m Crying, singer Alan Price also proudly joins Oundle’s Picnic in the Park line-up this year. The former keyboard player for British rock group ‘The Animals’ will delight audiences with his inimitable style and classic Sixties tracks.
‘As near to the real thing as you're likely to get. Freddie lives! A pop legend is back.’
Gates open at 5pm Prepare to be enthralled as Killer Queen returns to Oundle to set the stage alight with its spot-on renditions of classics such as Bohemian Rhapsody, We Are The Champions and Don’t Stop Me Now. Arguably the best ‘Queen’ tribute act features the superbly talented Patrick Myers whose portrayal of legendary front man Freddie Mercury is simply uncanny. It will feel as if Freddie himself has returned to the stage! Backed by three hand-picked band members who skilfully emulate Brian May, John Deacon and Roger Taylor, Killer Queen is guaranteed to bring the original band’s showmanship and electrifying performances to life.
