  • Queen Machine is on a current European tour and their gig in the Sohail Castle in Fuengirola will be their only performance in Spain

Queen Machine, Europe's top Queen Tribute act is coming to the Costa del Sol for the first time to perform a special charity concert in aid of Cudeca next week.

Queen Machine is on a current European tour and their gig in the Sohail Castle in Fuengirola will be their only performance in Spain. Their show is billed as “the closest you can get to the real thing” and fans flock to their gigs in their thousands.

The tribute band, which originates from Denmark, was formed in 2007 and is fronted by Bajarke Baisner, who performs, sings and looks incredibly like the legendary Freddie Mercury.

Queen Machine presents a truly authentic show, complete with lighting and staging designed to create a perfect replica of a 1980s Queen concert, a period when the band were considered the greatest live act in the world.

The show has received the approval of Queen's guitarist, Brian May, and drummer, Roger Taylor.

The band's costumes are tailor made to look just like the ones worn by Queen and attention is paid to even the smallest detail, like the guitarist's plectrum, a sixpence coin that Brian May used during the height of Queen's fame.

The concert will be held on Saturday 21 April and lovers of the band will enjoy some of Queen's greatest hits, including Somebody to Love, We Will Rock You, Another One Bites the Dust and Crazy Little Thing Called Love.

The band was originally formed just for fun, but their act was soon receiving brilliant reviews from both critics and fans alike, and they went from playing small venues in Denmark to huge European festivals attended by up to 20,000 people.

The concert will begin with a performance by Paul Maxwel (also known as the Piano Man), a popular entertainer who has performed with Lionel Richie, Gary Moore and Michael Bolton. Paul will perform popular hits of Elton John, Louis Armstrong, Tom Jones and Tina Turner before Queen Machine takes the stage at 9pm.

Tickets cost 18 and 25 euros and are available online from www.ticketea.com.
