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. 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.

The incredible CHANCES DANCES deejays The Lady Speedstick and Erik Roldan will spin before and after the party into the morning hours!

Kicking off the night is special guest The Game Show Show…and Stuff! Two years in a row, they were named “BEST LATE NIGHT” by Chicago Magazine, which described the show as “the best (and worst) of ‘The Price Is Right,’ ‘Jackass” and ‘Soul Train.” The Game Show Show…and Stuff! is a live interactive game show in which willing audience members are pitted against each other as contestants to play hilarious games of trivia, physical challenges and good old-fashioned guessing games. The “…and Stuff!” portion of the show includes live music, comedy, dancing and more.

HISTORY: 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.
