Alien Queen!! In Concert!!! One Night Only!!!


Witness the birth of Alien Queen: The Concert at Chicago’s ultimate rock destination – METRO, 3730 N. Clark St. Chicago

TICKETS ON SALE SATURDAY, 4/9 AT NOON; $16 advance general admission; $20 day of, $30 VIP seating.

"Alien Queen: The Concert combines the legendary music of Queen with an outrageous parody of the “Alien” films. For the “Concert” we’ve added songs, dancing, and even more absurdity to create a top-notch Queen tribute band featuring those fantastical aliens, cross-gendered humans, and some of Chicago’s best singers and rock musicians.
Starting at 9pm on May 13th, The Scooty & JoJo Show and Metro host the full evening of rock and ridiculousness with special guest performances leading up to the incredible Alien Queen: The Concert!
The Scooty & JoJo Show premiered Alien Queen: A Sci-fi Rock ParOdyssey in December 2010 and January 2011 at Chicago’s Circuit Nightclub, garnering incredible critical praise and packed houses. The original show, created and staged by Scott Bradley, is a farcical fusion of the Alien film franchise with the iconic sound of British rock band Queen.
Featuring classic Queen hits as well as deep cuts from the early Queen catalog, Alien Queen’s transformation into concert form puts the epic music and absurd pageantry front and center"
