Performer extraordinaire Roy Gomez Cruz delivers powerful vocals, Queen hits, and an incredible live entertainment experience in his new hit show, The Epic Freddie Mercury, a breathtaking musical event you won’t soon forget!

The show is featured every Friday at 8 pm at The Palm Cabaret to enthusiastic audiences.

The Epic Freddie Mercury takes you on an energetic, visual, and emotional journey through the songs and life events that made Freddie Mercury larger than life. Roy’s powerful vocals and unbelievable impersonation bring you as close as you’ll ever be to this legendary rock icon.

His professional musical and performance training has enabled him to produce and star in a truly EPIC tribute to Queen and its lead singer.

Not only does Roy sing every song authentically, but his costumes, style, persona, and audience engagement all measure up to the legendary Freddie Mercury. Several times during the night, Roy even accompanies himself on the piano, just like the iconic Freddie Mercury did in his concerts.

With incredible video footage of Queen concerts and interviews in the background, the show entertains and educates the audience about this unique and groundbreaking star.

The concert takes the audience through Freddie’s transformation into an eternal legend!

The Palm Cabaret’s Mark Rome has commented, “This is much more than just a show. I have never seen audiences embrace and enjoy a performance like this. Absolute magic happens with this unforgettable tribute to Freddie and Queen.” 

To take on the challenge of portraying such an extraordinary musical icon is no small task, and Roy does it perfectly and with the energy and passion of the legend himself.

Throughout the performance, we experienced hits like Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Love of My Life, Under Pressure, Don’t Stop Me Now, and I Want to Break Free, with the classic reenactment of the Queen cross-dressing video.

We also enjoyed classics like Somebody to Love, We Will Rock You, and We Are the Champions. And, of course, the best-known of all his songs, Bohemian Rhapsody, was a highlight of the evening.

Joining Roy through the entire show were amazing performance actors Francisco (Paco) Guízar, Mery Zambrano, and Bryan Santana, who danced to Choreographer Jary Torres’s beautiful depiction of Freddie’s life and music. Each one added another fabulous dimension to the show.

Roy Gomez Cruz has years of successful participation in Queen Tribute shows. He has a master’s degree in Communications, specifically examining Cirque du Soleil as a cultural industry of global reach.

He has fully immersed himself in artistic creation and performance. From a musical family, Roy grew up loving the band Queen and knew all their music.

Roy considers it a great honor to pay tribute to such a legendary performer as Freddie Mercury. Larger than life, Freddie was a complex artist who was challenging to portray. Roy sees every show as a wonderful privilege to honor and share the music and the persona of Freddie Mercury and Queen.

Prepare for an electrifying journey through Freddie Mercury’s best hits that propelled him to legendary status. The Epic Freddie Mercury, Roy Cruz’s newest MASTERPIECE, is a highly energetic odyssey filled with nostalgic and intimate moments, featuring live singing, dazzling acrobatic dancers, mesmerizing lights, and iconic costumes.
