Ian Adams as Freddie Mercury

Ian has always had a love for QUEEN & Freddie Mercury's music, being a huge fan at heart. When gigging in covers bands it didn't go unnoticed that when performing QUEEN songs they always stood out in the shows and were always very well received by audiences. 
 
So in light of this, in 2014 Ian conceived the idea and decided to embark on his journey to become a Freddie Mercury tribute artist. This decision was not taken lightly and he just knew this was not an easy task in which to take on. To attempt to emulate the persona, stage presence and charisma of a true legend as Freddie. However a wonderful challenge and journey began. No expense was spared on the best specially made replica outfits, to provide the most authentic look of Freddie possible! 
 
For many months Ian spent studying Freddie's mannerism, facial expressions & complete persona. Although Ian had the vocal range to sing pretty much most of QUEENS classic hits in the original keys. He now had to alter his vocals to add the Freddie phrasing and to also be authentic as possible, by adding the lovely English accent for the shows. So with a lot of work to be done, Ian locked himself behind closed doors for many, many, months rehearsing hard to put together an authentic tribute show. 
 
In 2015 the full tribute show was introduced to the public to a fantastic reception! now the show has grown and gone from strength to strength. This also including developing the act to also offer, a full 4 piece live QUEEN tribute band. Recently Ian was booked in the summer 2016 to headline and perform to a 5000 audience at a festival with his full QUEEN tribute band.
