The Suffolk welcomes back The Ultimate Queen Celebration on Thursday, May 9, at 8 p.m., this time featuring not one, but two vocalists endorsed by original members of Queen – Brian May and Roger Taylor.

Performing in some of the most prestigious venues worldwide, The Ultimate Queen Celebration is the only tribute to legendary rock band Queen of its kind. UQC breathes new life into Queen's greatest hits such as, "Radio Gaga," "Tie Your Mother Down," "Fat Bottomed Girls," "Killer Queen," "Somebody to Love," "Bohemian Rhapsody" and so many more.

Leaving the half microphone stands and fake mustaches behind, lead vocalists Yvan Pendault and Mig Ayesa pay tribute to the very sound and excitement that cemented Queen's spot in the history books.

Pendault was discovered by Queen founding members Brian May and Roger Taylor during his time on Canada’s “The Voice” in 2016. He was then offered the leading role in the Toronto production of “We Will Rock You” and was later cast in the first North American tour of “Queen Extravaganza.” Ayesa has starred in “Rock of Ages” on Broadway and “We Will Rock You” on the West End as well as three international tours. He has also toured with “Queen Symphonic Spectacular,” which even sold out the Sydney Opera House.

These vocalists are backed by some of the finest musicians on the scene who have performed with the likes of Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Rock of Ages, Cher and others – most recently added to the roster is Jules Radino, the drummer for Blue Oyster Cult since 2004.

Tickets for The Ultimate Queen Celebration are $45 to $75 at thesuffolk.org. The Suffolk is at 118 East Main Street in Riverhead.
