Queen are coming to Australia again and bringing a super weird Freddie Mercury replacement

You know Queen? Yeah, creators of such wonderful songs as Another One Bites The Dust and, like, Bohemian Rhapsody, have announced that they’re gonna be touring Australia in August and September.

While they’re not taking onboard my recommendation to change hit single “We Are The Champions” to “Australians Are The Champions”, they will be pressing on around Oz without the dear and departed Freddie Mercury, and it’s guaranteed to be a sellout concert regardless. Who wouldn’t kill(er Queen)to sing along to Bohemian Rhapsody as it’s being performed live, especially as most people under thirty would never have had the chance to see them?

“But Project U, who’s replacing old m8 Freddie on the tour?”

Well, dear reader, we’re glad you asked.

A lot of brilliant musicians have played in Fred‘s place over the past 29 years – legends like Elton John, David Bowie and Annie Lennox. So Queen have decided to use…


Yeah, we’re not sure either. We present this without comment….take it as you will. The other members of Queen are saying he’s pretty good, so shall we give them the benefit of the doubt with that one?

Nonetheless, Scaramouche, Scaramouche, we will most DEFINITELY be doing the fandango if we get tickets to see these guys.
