Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

Gary Mullen was just a Glasgow guy who liked to sing karaoke Queen songs in the local pub until his wife and mother secretly signed him up for Stars in Their Eyes, a U.K. talent show for celebrity impersonators. In 2000, Mullen’s deadon Freddie Mercury won the competition with what still stands as the most votes in the show’s 16-year history.

Nine years later, Mullen and his band The Works re-create the splashy theatricality of a circa- 1986 Queen performance in a two-hour piece of rock performance art. Have you slipped into a time machine back to the heyday of the flamboyant mustachioed frontman? No, it’s just Mullen—who has made a touring career out of deciding that he will, he will rock you.
