Well, you can have it right now as the spectacular Champions of Rock comes to the Theatre Royal in Lincoln on 26th September.

And we have a pair of tickets to give away for the show.

Champions of Rock is coming to town.

Be prepared to be regally rocked till you drop.

The stars of the show specialise in combining superb musicianship with audacious stage antics.

The audience is invited to journey back to a time when Queen reigned supreme with Another One Bites the Dust, We are the Champions and, of course, Bohemian Rhapsody.

Champions of Rock is a crazy big thing, a scintillating night out. Prepare to be entertained, exhilarated, rocked till you drop.

Forty years ago Freddie Mercury and his band Queen had begun the year gigging at relatively obscure venues like the Greyhound pub in Croydon,

It was a far cry from their legendary live show of 1986 at Wembley Stadium.

Their live set only occasionally included the song Seven Seas of Rhye – their first hit single – and their first hit album, Queen II, was set for release.

However, all that changed in 1974 when their third album, Sheer Heart Attack, and Killer Queen, the hit single taken from album, were released that year and established the group as bona fide pop stars.

But throughout Queen’s career, even during their relatively low-key winter tour, their incredible live performances marked them out as more than just another band.

To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets, simply answer the following question: Q) What was the name of the names of Queen’s lead singer?

Mark your answer Champions of Rock Competition and send it, along with your name, address and daytime contact number to Gainsborough Standard, Brittania House, Marshall’s Yard, DN21 2NA or email [email protected] by Friday, 11th July.
