Scott Malley (Freddie Mercury), Luke Timmins (guitarist), Ben Marshall (pianist), Alan Wallbanks (bass) and Allan Brown (drummer), are bringing their ‘authentic’ show to the Pavilion Theatre next month as they take to the famous stage for the first time ever.
Speaking exclusively with the Glasgow Times, Scott said: “We’re very excited to play Glasgow.
“We’ve heard the Pavilion is a really nice venue, we haven’t played it before.
“We’ve played shows in Scotland quite a lot though, we’ve recently done gigs in Hamilton and Motherwell and played a charity show at the Classic Grand in Glasgow.
“Scotland is very dear to me. I have family there from Paisley and Renfrewshire, so, I’ve spent a lot of time in the country.
“We always get a great reception in Scotland too, we have quite a big following over there.”

Before becoming a tribute band back in 1995, Supreme Queen began their career in various cover bands.
After working the bar and club scene for many years, the band found themselves playing festivals alongside superstar tribute acts like Bootleg Beatles, before taking charge of the theatre circuit and performing around the world.
But there was one question we had to know, why Queen?
Scott explained: “It was natural (to play and sing Queen).
“I was always into music, and I turned to classic rock bands when I was little.
“I was always singing, even as a kid, and I found it quite natural to sing Queen.
“When I first sang one of their songs, I believe it was Under Pressure, it seemed very natural and for the band too.
“When we were doing the circuit, people told me my voice came out as Freddie.
“Whatever I did and whatever artist I was emulating, it always seemed to come out as and sound like Freddie.”
After performing for around 28 years, Scott admitted he still finds it ‘amazing’ that people come out to see the band’s performances.
He added: “It still amazes me after 28 years that so many people come out to see our shows. It’s amazing.
“Parents bring the children which is amazing, and then the rest of the audience are older and were probably teens at Queens’ actual shows back in the 70s and 80s.
“It’s a wonderful thing to be part of the band and since Bohemian Rhapsody came out, we have so many new and especially young fans.”
So what can fans expect from the fresh round of upcoming shows?
Scott teased: “Our show will be very authentic; we are very meticulous in what we do.
“We base our shows on Queen’s live concerts. Some other tribute bands stick to the studio sound, but we don’t because that’s not even how Queen played it live.
“We get as close as we can to their sound, and we keep the set filled with the greatest hits and we sprinkle the album tracks. We also like putting a few ballads in the set to change the flow of the show.
“Generally, we do as Queen did, just as it was.”
