THE MAGIC of Queen will return to Cambridge when highly rated tribute act GaGa come to the Corn Exchange.
GaGa played a successful gig at the Corn Exchange last year, and return on Friday ,June 15 as part of their Best of Queen tour.
The Liverpool-based trio, lead singer and guitarist John Holmes, bass player Tony Pilling, and drummer Graham Patrick, have been filming with the BBC as part of a forthcoming documentary entitled The Story of Bohemian Rhapsody.
Formed in 1989, GaGa have enjoyed great success over the last 18 years, appearing with artists including Squeeze, The Spice Girls, Space, and Frank Skinner.
They have also played to crowds of more than 20,000 people at events such as Party in the Park and the Mardi Gras, and have starred at Queen conventions from Southport to Dubai.
Unlike many bands on the tribute circuit, GaGa do not dress up or attempt to make themselves look like Queen - there are no wigs, no make up, and definitely no false moustaches.

Instead they concentrate on the power and precision that made Queen's music great.
Classic songs such as A Kind of Magic, Radio Ga Ga, and Bohemian Rhapsody are brought to life with the aid of a spectacular light show.
The audience are encouraged to become part of the show, just as they were when Queen performed live.
Queen guitarist Brian May labelled GaGa 'excellent and stylish musicians', while the Official Queen Fan Club simply described them as 'stunning'.
