Along with the many fans that mourn the loss of Freddie Mercury, Flash aim to celebrate the wealth of talent that came together in Queen by recreating, with breathtaking accuracy, the style and excitement of a live Queen concert, which sadly, will never again be seen. Flash are now critically acclaimed as the UK's top Tribute to Freddie Mercury & Queen.

Having played together for ten years, and realising that the Queen songs that they performed received rapturous approval, as opposed to the songs of other artistes, B-fifteen, as they were then known, decided to embark on a monumental task – To recreate the best, most talented rock band EVER!
Are You Serious?
You bet your life they’re serious. Being staunch Queen fans themselves, the last thing Flash want to do is alienate Queen fans, either by name or performance. By aiming to replicate a live Queen performance, with all its charm and charisma, and where possible, adding the studio harmonies, Flash aim to please and impress as many people as possible.
In The Beginning
In 1993 Flash formed to pay tribute to the World’s No.1 band. The arduous task of co-ordinating lighting, image, clothes, make-up, (Yes, make up! If Flash do a job, the job is done professionally throughout!), mannerisms and not least by any means, the harmonies and music of the greatest band in the world.
The Stoke based band rehearsed behind closed doors for twelve months to perfect the show.
Flash are now critically acclaimed as the UK’s top Tribute to Freddie Mercury & Queen.
