33 1/3 Live's Killer Queen Experience

Penn Community Bank Amphitheater, 2400 Byberry Road, Bensalem, PA

Bensalem Residents - $5 Non Residents - $10 ​​ / Chidren 12 and Under - Free

Remember listening to your favorite albums all the way through, the way the artist meant them to be heard? So does Jim Drnec, drummer and founder of the multi-faceted musical collective 33 1/3 LIVE. “We perform classic rock albums using a rotating cast of the best musicians,” says Drnec.

But 33 1/3 LIVE’s most recent endeavor is also their most ambitious: The Killer Queen Experience faithfully re-creates Queen’s studio recordings live on stage including all the vocal harmonies that made the records so amazing! Not satisfied with just playing the “hits” however, the Killer Queen Experience also plays Queen’s quintessential album, A Night At The Opera, in its entirety, featuring tracks like You’re My Best Friend, The Prophet’s Song, and, of course, the operatic masterpiece Bohemian Rhapsody.* * * * * * * * * *
