Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Twenty-one years ago, The Palm Cabaret and Bar launched what was to become a thriving entertainment scene in Puerto Vallarta. The Palm Cabaret truly started it all and continues to feature talented musicians and acts from across the planet.
The current entertainment director at The Palm, Mark Rome, was there from the beginning, but eventually moved on to other entertainment venues. Mark has once again joined The Palm Cabaret, doing what he loves best, coordinating and booking quality artists and acts.
Mark brings with him one of his all-time favorite shows. Mark has witnessed hundreds of shows over the last 20 years and last February introduced Vallarta audiences to 'Queen Live Forever,' a tribute to the band Queen, starring Roy Gomez Cruz as Freddie Mercury.
Back by popular demand, 'Queen Live Forever' returns to The Palm Cabaret for performances on Fridays at 6:30 pm and Saturdays at 9:30 pm throughout the entire season. The opening show is on November 28th at 9:30 pm. Experience this concert in a cabaret setting for a show that you won't soon forget!
"This is much more than just a show. It's a concert that is musically and visually a 'not to be missed' experience. I have never seen audiences embrace and enjoy a performance like this before. Absolute magic happens with this unforgettable tribute to Freddie Mercury and Queen," Mark recently said about 'Queen Live Forever.'
The members of 'Queen Live Forever' are spectacularly talented musicians with impressive careers. Roy Gomez Cruz had already been part of two other successful Queen Tribute shows when he joined the project in 2018. Roy has a master's degree in Communications, specifically examining Cirque du Soleil as a cultural industry of global reach.
Currently he is a PhD Candidate in Performance Studies at Northwestern University. He has fully immersed himself in artistic creation and performance, hoping to eventually become an artistic director / producer of shows that recognize Mexican talent in the international arena. From a musical family, Roy grew up loving the band Queen and knew all of their music. He enjoys the raw emotion and drama of portraying a fantastic artist like Freddie Mercury.
Other members of the band include Christian Gomez, (as Roger Taylor), who has played drums for musicians like Luis Fonsi, David Bisbal, Yuri, Haash, Ricardo Montaner and Alejandra Guzman; Alejandro Carrera, (as Brian May), a guitarist trained at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA; and Danny Sixx, (as John Deacon), an impressive bassist, a former musician of EMI Music, and a favorite in the rock music scene.
Roy Gomez Cruz considers it an incredible honor to pay tribute to such a legendary performer like Freddie Mercury. Larger than life, Freddie was a complex artist who is a challenge to portray. Roy and the band see every show as a wonderful privilege to honor and share the music and the persona of Freddie Mercury and Queen. 'Queen Live Forever' portrays the many voices of one of music's most memorable stars.
Don't miss the phenomenal performance, 'Queen Live Forever' every Friday night at 6:30 pm and Saturday night at 9:30 pm beginning November 28th.
