Queen Nation presented by the Civic Concert Series

May 20, 2023
7:00PM - 11:00PM

Queen Nation, a tribute to the music of Queen, with opening act Mike Barthel & the Boys to play at the LaPorte Civic Auditorium on Saturday, May 20th!

Queen Nation is an amazingly accurate tribute to a throwback 70s-80s Queen concert. The band was formed in 2004 by LA based music agency DMHE.

Queen Nation is the West Coast’s longest running most authentic fully costumed re- creation of a Vintage Queen concert. The show consists of four musicians who all sing and perform in character and in period costumes while playing live note-for-note renditions of Classic Queen songs. Featured front man vocalist Gregory Finsley who is an amazing singer with an uncanny tone that matches the late great Freddie Mercury to a tee . Gregory also is an excellent concert trained pianist which allows him to accurately recreate what Freddie Mercury magically did live on stage in Queen’s original four piece lineup.

Queen Nation has been crowned by their loyal legions of fans as “The Peoples Choice Tribute To Queen Champions” and rightly so because arguably they are one of the hardest working tribute bands in the US. Their Pollstar averages are at: 1,600 + tickets and over $35K gross. They have also been honored to recently be inducted into the California Music Hall Of Fame’s inaugural class and voted “The Best Live Band” at the VCMA’s.
Mike Barthel & the Boys are coming home to Mike’s backyard to provide a great show and start the night off rockin’!! Don’t miss the release of Mike’s new music video “My Hometown” on February 18th!!
General Admission tickets start at $25 for balcony and limited GA seats available on the floor at $50.

Reserved tables start at $400. Tickets available at or in person at the La Porte Civic Auditorium.
