‘God Save The Queen’ rock Sitges, as Terramar Festival moves into 2nd week

The renowned God Save The Queen tribute band rocked Sitges on Sunday night, on the fourth night of the Jardins Terramar Festival, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the legendary group led by Freddie Mercury.

It was a magical, sold-out performance by the Argentine tribute band, from the first bars of the opening One Vision to a full repertoire of classics, such as Radio Gaga, Bohemian Rapshody, We Will Rock You, Friends Will Be Friends, We Are The Champions, I Want To Break Free and Don’t Stop Me Now.

Queen are considered to be one of the most important bands of the 20th century and have been probably one of the most influential in history. And God Save The Queen have earned international recognition for being the band that best represents the spirit of the group formed in 1970 by the legendary Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon.

Pablo Padín’s extraordinary performance as Freddie Mercury, accompanied by Ezequiel Tibaldo, Dani Marcos and Matías Albornoz, earned them the honour of being chosen by 20th Century Fox to promote the band’s official film Bohemian Rhapsody. At the Terramar Gardens in Sitges on Sunday, the band performed hits dating back to 1973 with Made in Heaven, combined with dazzling costume changes and moments reminiscent of the original band’s performance at the famous Wembley Live Aid concert.

On Friday Fangoria, the duo formed by Alaska and Nacho Canut, returned to the stage of the Terramar Festival, four years after performing in the first edition of the event. ‘We love Sitges, because Sitges is Sitges,’ they said, just minutes before going on stage.
