One of the world’s greatest rock bands will be honoured with a candlelit tribute concert in Manchester next week. 

Queen By Candlelight will return to our city after selling out venues across Britain, Australia and New York City. 

The hugely popular event will see an incredible live band and a cast of singers from the West End performing Queen’s biggest hits. 

It’ll all take place at Manchester Opera House – but the stage lights will be switched out for thousands of flickering candles.

Queen – formerly fronted by the late Freddie Mercury – are behind some of the most iconic rock songs in history. 


The tracks featured in the Queen By Candlelight concert will include Bohemian Rhapsody, It’s A Kind of Magic, We Are The Champions, Who Wants to Live Forever, and more.

Previous events have been reviewed as being ‘the best tribute to Queen’ and a ‘must-see’.
