Back by popular demand, the Bohemians return to Hard Rock Cafe Dubai to kick off a new series of live music 

We will definitely Rock You!  Hard Rock Cafe Dubai has returned to the Dubai live music scene with a series of tribute concerts, sponsored by Bose Corporation.  Queen (Saturday 2nd September 2017), Led Zeppelin (Saturday 30th September 2017) and Abba (Sunday 31st December 2017) are guaranteed to get the feet tapping and the fingers drumming. 

Entering into its fifth year, Hard Rock Cafe Dubai continues to support Queen in celebrating Freddie For A Day this September 2nd.  Internationally renowned Queen Tribute band The Bohemians return to take you on a high energy roller coaster ride of a concert, featuring the back catalogue of one of the worlds most popular and iconic rock acts of all time.

Billed as ‘The World’s Most Exciting Queen Tribute’, The Bohemians keep audiences gripped by a bombastic, authentic audio-visual representation of Queen’s iconic Wembley ‘86 performance as they burst onto the stage to the strains of One Vision and A Kind of Magic. So many fabulous hits to be covered— from the early piano and harmony heavy wonders of Killer Queen and Don’t Stop Me Now, to the later, catchy, pop anthems of the eighties.  The stunning Breakthru provides both the introduction and the costume presentation for the second set, which includes a new feature of the Bohemians stage show, a slick rendering of classics from the late eighties and early nineties era. I Want It All, The Show Must Go On, and the haunting, Days of Our Lives are just some of those featured. 

Next up, it’s the sights and sounds of the famous Live Aid performance and of course, the awesome Bohemian Rhapsody. Then it’s back to Wembley ‘86 for a suitably rousing finale when The Bohemians will have you on your feet, singing, dancing and clapping along to the likes of We Will Rock You and We Are the Champions. The appropriate climax to a truly memorable live re-enactment of the world’s greatest Rock Band.
