Queen tribute band to play Isle of Wight show

Tourists heading out on Isle of Wight holidays at the end of the month can attend a show by a Queen tribute band during their time on the island.

Cowes Yacht Haven will be hosting the Night of a Thousand Freddies on April 30th 2011, the day after the royal wedding between Kate Middleton and Prince William.

Tribute act The Bohemians top the bill and are endorsed by Queen guitarist Brian May and the event is part of Isle of Wight promoter Steve Robson's series of Electric 80s parties.

Speaking to the Isle of Wight County Press, he explained that people on their Isle of Wight holidays who buy a ticket for the show will also be given a special treat.

"Each of the thousand tickets on sale comes with a free Freddie moustache. The best-dressed Freddie will win a bottle of bubbly," said Mr Robson.

Hits likely to be played on the night by The Bohemians include We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions.
