Here's your chance to re-live the magic of mega-pop band Queen by winning tickets to what should be a fantastic show.

Since winning British talent show Stars In Their Eyes in 2000, Gary Mullen - the erstwhile computer salesman - has never looked back, impersonating Freddie Mercury for more than 15 years now.

The Glasgow-born performer - who brings his Queen tribute to Whanganui next week - says he discovered his ability to sound like Mercury while singing in bands as a teenager.

Reviewers have praised Mullen's "uncanny ability to reincarnate Mercury" and his band The Works for their musicianship.


Guitarist David Brockett not only looks like Queen axeman Brian May, he reputedly does a great imitation "punctuated by many good solos and some classic riffs".

Mullen's performances of Queen songs like I Want to Break Free, A Kind of Magic, We Will Rock You and, of course, Bohemian Rhapsody have been described as "uncannily authentic".

To be in to win a double pass to One Night of Queen at the Royal Wanganui Opera House on Thursday, August 24, just tell us which country Gary Mullen is from.

Post or deliver your answer to Liz Wylie at the Wanganui Chronicle, 100 Guyton St or email with your full contact details before Monday, August 21.
