“Guaranteed to blow your mind...” PURE QUEEN is the UK's leading tribute to unarguably the greatest rock band the world has ever known fronted by one of the best Freddie Mercury impersonators in the world. A high-energy night of rock, not to be missed!
Mark Sanders (as Freddie) has been captivating audiences for years with his breathtaking solo act to Freddie Mercury and Queen (Pure Magic), and duo tribute act to Freddie Mercury and Brian May (Stereo Queen). With the untimely loss of the late great Freddie Mercury in 1991 there has always been a huge void to fill in popular music. So with endless studies of live shows Mark has recreated the very essence of Freddie’s stage charisma making him the number one Freddie Mercury impersonator. Production is flamboyant with an historical look at the legend that will endure and always remain timeless.
And now comes the latest string to his bow -the full band show, Pure Queen.
Featuring over 25 of Queen’s classic hits authentically reproduced and delivered with an explosive performance that will leave you rocking in your seats, it is a spectacle that is as close as you can get to the real thing!

“Totally awesome!!...had the whole venue on their feet!!” Andy Winters - Leicester City Football Club. (Audience of 18,000).
“Pure Queen are the business, one of the best tribute shows we have had in a long time!” Alan Duncan - Managing Director - De-Vere Hotel - London
“Just to let you know that last night’s show was amazing. We have loved Queen for most of our lives, but have never been lucky enough to see them. Last night we experienced the nearest thing to the original we will ever get. Thank you for an amazing evening, keep up the good work, and we will try and see you soon.” Unsolicited testimonial, Mike & Jo - Newton Abbot. Performance at the 500 seat Sheldon Theatre (completely sold out) - July 28 2018.
“Next came a full band tribute to the music of Queen, provided by a convincing Freddie Mercury sound alike/look-alike and Brian May. They were “Pure Queen”, performing an entertaining, energetic set of favourites, such as Radio Gaga and We Will Rock You, which had the room rocking. Ending up strutting the stage draped in the Union flag, this Freddie comes close to recreating the huge persona of the real item!” Mike Martin, The Stage Review
“The impressive vocals were still there and Freddie’s mannerisms were spot on in numbers including Bohemian Rhapsody and the almost obligatory We Will Rock You.” Derek Smith, The Stage Review
“The Queen tribute market isn’t crowded because it’s a tough act to pull off but “Stereo Queen” are now fully fledged members of the tribute fraternity and its easy to see why. Mark Ritchie, Expert Choice [review of the Duo Act - its the full Band at the Waterlooville Music Festival]
“Close your eyes and the sounds are electric!” Dave Mills, Chester Music Gazette
