Queen + Adam Lambert recently announced their forthcoming Rhapsody Tour that will see them packing arenas throughout the U.S. 

Sure, it is going to be quite the spectacle, but some folks might not want to fork over a few bills to sit high in the rafters, which is understandable. 

No worries, The Clyde has you covered. 

On Tuesday, July 25, the Bluffton Road venue will welcome Killer Queen: A Tribute to Queen, a band that imitates the music, look, and moves of the legendary band with startling accuracy. 

Killer Queen are led by Patrick Myers who has an uncanny resemblance of Freddie Mercury. They have been paying homage since 1993, which is plenty of time to perfect the act. Their first public shows were at London University, following the footsteps of Queen who had played their first shows there 22 years earlier. From there, they became Europe’s top Queen tribute. 

In 2016, Killer Queen came to America and have sold out Red Rocks Amphitheatre outside Denver, have played Austin City Limits many times over, and are now in high demand all over the world. Killer Queen is the next thing to the original, and they will have you believing you’re at Wembley Stadium in 1986. 

Tickets go on sale Friday, April 7, at, over the phone at (800) 514-3849, or in person at The Clyde box office and Sweetwater Sound.

Clyde bringing in Culbertson, Zeppelin tribute

Along with Killer Queen, The Clyde have also added the prolific keyboardist, composer, and multi-instrumentalist Brian Culbertson to their schedule on Saturday, Sept. 30, and Zoso: The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience on Saturday, Nov. 25. 

Culbertson tickets go on sale April 7, while Zoso tickets are already on sale.

Smile Empty Soul stopping by Piere’s

On Thursday, June 8, Piere’s will welcome California hard rockers Smile Empty Soul on their 20th anniversary tour. 

It’s hard to believe these cats have been around more than 20 years despite a few lineup shuffles. Sean Danielsen remains the only founding member still active as well as the band’s primary songwriter, frontman, and leader. In 2021, the band released their ninth full length album, Black Pilled

They will be joined that evening by the alternative/dark rock project The Nocturnal Affair and Philadelphia’s premier fuzz rockers The Stone Eye

This all-ages show will take place in Stan’s Room with tickets available via or in person at all Wooden Nickel locations. 

Indianapolis rockers Antlerhead at Brass Rail

The Indianapolis indie-rock outfit Antlerhead will make the trip north to perform at the Brass Rail on Friday, April 21. 

With ethereal guitars and in-your-face vocals, these cats will grab your attention and not let go. 

Led by frontman Ty Bush, the band formed in 2017 and set out to carry the indie rock torch with catchy pop melodies atop abstract rock n’ roll. 

They will be joined that evening by our very own Middle Names and the post-hardcore act The Part You Left Out (featuring Jared Madigan and Tristan Wright of Disappear). 

A $7 cover at the door will get in for all the mayhem.
