Ian Adams As Freddie Mercury
Ian Adams started out performing in covers bands for several years, also playing guitar & bass guitar respectively. He always had a love for QUEEN & Freddie Mercury’s music & a huge fan at heart. It couldn’t help go unnoticed that when performing QUEEN songs with the covers bands, they always stood out in the shows & were well received the most by audiences.
So in light of this, Ian Adams in 2014 conceived the idea & decided to embark on his journey to become a Freddie Mercury tribute artist. This decision was not taken lightly & he just knew this was not an easy task in which to take on. To attempt to emulate the persona, stage presence & charisma of a true legend as Freddie. However a wonderful challenge & journey began. No expense was spared on the best specially made replica outfits, to provide the most authentic look of Freddie possible!
For many months Ian Adams spent studying Freddie’s mannerism, facial expressions & complete persona. Although Ian had the vocal range to sing pretty much most of QUEENS classic hits in the original keys. He now had to alter his vocals to add the Freddie phrasing & to also be authentic as possible, by adding the lovely English accent for the shows. So with a lot of work to be done, Ian locked himself behind closed doors for many, many, months rehearsing hard to put together an authentic tribute show.
In 2015 Ian Adams and his full tribute show was introduced to the public to a fantastic reception! now the show as grown & gone from strength to strength. This also including developing the act to also offer, a full 4 piece live QUEEN tribute band. Recently Ian was booked in the summer 2016 to headline & perform to a 5000 audience, at a festival with his full QUEEN tribute band QUEEN EXTREME.
Ian Adams has travelled nationwide taking his solo Freddie Mercury tribute show & also his QUEEN tribute band to wonderfully, greatly received audiences. This recognising & establishing Ian as a wonderful tribute to Freddie Mercury, sharing his love & passion for QUEEN’s music with the fans!
