FROM THE CITY OF CLARKSBURG PARKS DEPARTMENT
 
The City Parks of Clarksburg has announced The Ultimate Queen Celebration Starring Marc Martel is set to perform at the Clarksburg Amphitheater on Thursday, July 11th, 2019.
 
Marc Martel, a sonic doppelgänger of the iconic Freddie Mercury, was hand-picked by Queen’s very own Brian May and Roger Taylor. He has appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, on American Idol with the surviving members of Queen, and most recently, provided much of the vocals heard in the 2018 hit Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Roger Taylor has commented, “That voice. You listen, close your eyes and you think it’s Freddie. It’s really uncanny.”
 
The Ultimate Queen Celebration Starring Marc Martel has sold out venues around the globe with their brilliant 2-hour performance. Martel, who has amassed over 125 million views on Facebook and YouTube singing Queen classics, is often described by many as Freddie Mercury reincarnated. 
 
There are few bigger and more iconic bands on the planet than Queen. Their 1975 masterpiece Bohemian Rhapsody recently became the most streamed song from the 20th century with over 1.6 billion streams. 
 
This July, Queen fans can relive the magic as The Ultimate Queen Celebration brings an explosive, attention-commanding tribute featuring some of the most iconic rock anthems of all time paired with a theatrical performance style and eye-popping production. At its core, the riveting show focuses on the extremely diverse body of the band’s greatest hits including “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”, “Another One Bites The Dust”, “Under Pressure”, “We Are The Champions”, “We Will Rock You” and of course “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
 
John Cooper, Superintendent of Parks, said, “The Ultimate Queen Celebration is not a tribute show in the traditional sense. The band does not wear costumes or wigs to look like Queen. However, sonically, they’re simply incredible, and their shows are a lot of fun. There’s a good reason why they sell out so many of their shows – It’s going to be an amazing night out!”
