4.0 star rating T from Oxford,


I don’t know what expectations others had, they’re not Queen, so they won’t sound or look identical, the purpose of tribute bands is to celebrate musicians and bands which they did flawlessly. Sometimes the sound of certain instruments would over power all others but that’s hardly a major issue….. and just for the note…. His trousers do fit

3.0 star rating Ruby from Oxford,


Spotlights were shining into the audience eyes which made you squint. The two guys singing were dressed in what looked like scruffy jeans. Perhaps a bit of sparkle would have been more adept. During the second half the audience were encouraged to stand, surely if you pay for a seat you want to be seated- there was a man sitting in front of me who clearly found it difficult to get up everytime so he basically sat and watched people's backs the whole second half. I would go again, purely to listen to the songs

2.0 star rating G P from Oxford,


Not as good as expected, after a 2 year delay. They looked like 4 old guys who had sang at a karaoke, thought they sounded great and formed a band. Alirio the lead vocalist had so much stuff rammed into his dirty jeans pockets he looked like he had just step in off the street and had seen a stage and went for it. We left at the interval

2.0 star rating Denny from Oxford,


I thought I was a Queen fan but did not recognise many of the songs in the first half , we felt tempted to leave at the interval but had paid to see this , The lead singer had an excellent voice but was screaming most of the songs unsure how many more performances they have but he was straining his voice and seemed like he was trying too hard and he looked so scruffy, his jeans may have fitted him once, but had everything stuffed in his pockets, and why did he have to wear a black Mac in the second part? Bizarre The Second half the audience warmed up as they sang Queen songs everyone recognised. I certainly wouldn’t recommend this, the stage setting was uninspiring I had been looking forward to this for a couple of years and was bitterly disappointed. Looking around at the audience I think there was a lot who felt the same

1.0 star rating Josephine Giblin from Oxford,


A complete waste of £70 which was a birthday present, sounded like a karaoke, couldn’t really hear what he was singing, so bad my son and I left at the interval, very disappointed, he just went from one song to another, no story like, definitely wouldn’t recommend to anyone

The band that played at the New Theatre Oxford were terrible. The bass drum was so loud that it drowned out all the other instruments and the singer who seemed to be shouting to be heard. The whole sound system set up was appalling!! The theatre is quite small, therefore the sound was even worse. It was a terrible night and did nothing for Queen music. I certainly would not see them again.

1.0 star rating Jane Bennett from Oxford,


Was really looking forward to the show. As stated in other reviews the extreme loud screaming of the lead singer overwhelmed any song he was singing. Brilliant spotlights shining directly into the audience has well. Had The New Theatre Oxford given health warnings we would not have gone. Left at interval completly deaf and blinded! An awful experience.
