Crazy Little Things grew into a real sensation in a very short time. After performing on several large stages and festivals, the group is now presenting a special theater programme. Don't expect stick-on mustaches, vacuum cleaners or wigs, because these musicians go back to the essence of Queen's music.

Music journalist, editor-in-chief and Veronica DJ Jean-Paul Heck, along with singer Marijn Geluk and Heck's close friend and colleague Leo Blokhuis, created Queen: The Story. Heck interviewed the original Queen members several times. For example, he visited drummer Roger Taylor and guitarist Brian May at home. In 2011 he personally brought the legendary Queen guitarist to the Netherlands to present him with the Sena Performers European Guitar Award. He also goes back to the very beginning: the legendary Queen concerts he attended as a young teenager in the Netherlands and Belgium. Besides the legendary music, the show is full of anecdotes about his encounters with the Queen members. It's just one part of this true musical spectacle in which Crazy Little Things is mercilessly close to the sound of Queen, but in its own way. 

The band only wants one thing and that is to bring the legendary live shows and vintage sound of Queen to life in the theater. 

No stick-on mustaches, weird suits or messing with the keys. We will bring the hard rock side and the subtlety of Freddie, Brian, Roger and John to live. Queen: The Story is a theater show created with the deepest respect for perhaps the best band in pop and rock history. And yes, our singer sings every song in the same key as Freddie did back then.
