NIGHT OF QUEEN’

BY SAMANTHA BAITA | Staff Writer
1 “One Night of Queen”
rocks the house at the
Sunrise Theatre in Fort Pierce
tonight. Queen, of course, is the
insanely popular ’70s British
rock band whose hit “Bohemi-
an Rhapsody” has been widely
hailed as launching the MTV
age. Performed by the Scot-
tish group Gary Mullen and the
Works, “One Night of Queen”
packs venues all over the U.K.
and has made fans of trib-
ute-band skeptics on the other
side of The Pond as well. Gushed
one Fort Lauderdale blogger, “If
you’re a Queen fan, ‘One Night
of Queen’ is worth every penny
of admission. Even if you’re
not, the show is still a great
big stone cold crazy kick in
the pants.” The show starts at 8
p.m.; tickets are $45 and $39.
2 Lovers of choreography,
in all its forms, will dis-
cover an evening of entertain-
ment and inspiration tonight, as
