Legendary rockers Queen and Paul Rogers, the former Free and Bad Company singer/songwriter, stamped their own mark on a quintessential evening of classic rock music at Dubai Festival City on Friday.The group performed classics such as We Will Rock You, Tie Your Mother Down, Bohemian Rhapsody, All Right Now, I Want It All, Bad Company and their latest hit C-lebrity.
Fans were thrilled as the rock artists raised the roof with their energy-charged performance at a packed Dubai Festival City.The trio hit the stage, launching into Hammer Will Fall before covering the hits fans wanted to hear — Fat Bottomed Girls, Another One Bites The Dust, I Want It All and I Want to Break Free.
Rogers teamed up with Queen's guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor to launch an exhaustive European Tour, which also took place in Dubai.Queen was formed in 1970 in London by guitarist Brian May, lead vocalist Freddie Mercury and drummer Roger Taylor. Bassist John Deacon joined the team a year later.
The artists are known for vocal harmonies and audience participation in their live performance.
Following Mercury's death in 1991 and Deacon's retirement in 1997, May and Taylor have performed infrequently under the Queen name.
The two artists have also been collaborating with Paul Rodgers since 2005 for performances around the world.
Queen's hit single Bohemian Rhapsody, was number one in the United Kingdom for nine weeks, and is Britain's third best selling single of all time.
