Like many of the past popular Concerts in the Park in Santa Clarita, this week’s band will bring up nostalgic feelings for some members of the crowd. Queen Nation will take the stage on Saturday, July 8 at 7 p.m., a group that has been hailed by critics as one of the best re-creations in the world of the ‘70s sensation Queen.
It is the opening performance in the annual summer concert series at Central Park, located at 27150 Bouquet Canyon Road in Saugus.
Queen Nation is a tribute to one of rock and roll’s most successful bands. Lead vocalist Joe Retta recreates the iconic style of Freddie Mercury, and guitarist Mike McMannus nails the legendary riffs of Brian May, producing a live experience that some say could rival the original.
Concerts in the Park are free events put on by the City of Santa Clarita every Saturday night from July 8 through August 26. The family-friendly atmosphere allows residents and visitors to sit back, relax and enjoy the music all summer long.
Concert-goers are encouraged to bring beach chairs and blankets and food vendors will be on site selling a variety of concessions and snacks. For more information on Concerts in the Park, visit Santa-Clarita.com/Concerts.
