Marc Martel once promised that he would never do three things: Perform like Freddie in a yellow leather jacket, dance around with a microphone stand like his great idol once did. And he wouldn't grow a moustache either. He doesn't need any of that either. Because to come close to Freddie Mercury, it's enough when he sings.
With his former rock band Downhere, the Canadian had already released seven studio albums when he heard about Roger Taylor's plan to put together an official Queen tribute band in 2011. Martel's application video "Somebody To Love" not only became a hit on the net with more than 22 million YouTube clicks, but also a decisive turning point in his career. From now on, Martel was the vocally authorised Freddie double.
In the Oscar-winning film "Bohemian Rhapsody", he took over some of the vocal parts. In 2018, Marc Martel released the album "Thunderbolt and Lightning" with covered Queen songs such as "Under Pressure", "Love of my Life" or "Don't Stop Me Now". Songs that he will also perform at his spectacular show "One Vision of Queen" on 21 October 2023 in the Olympic Hall. Guaranteed without a yellow jacket and moustache.
