Songs covered included One Vision, Tie Your Mother Down, Seven Seas Of Rhye, Magic, Under Pressure, Save Me, Somebody to Love, Killer Queen, Now I’m Here, Fat Bottomed Girls, I Want It All, Don’t Stop Me Now, I Want To Break Free, Another One Bites The Dust, Bohemian Rhapsody, Hammer To Fall, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Radio Ga Ga, We Will Rock You, Friends Will Be Friends, and We Are The Champions.
There was also an after-party downstairs in the Retro room.
Entry was by donation and the money raised will go to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Nigel Woodhouse, Director of Operations at Studio Nantwich, said: “The QE2 guys put on an incredible show. It was a pleasure to have them at our Studio Live venue and it was great to see them after their now legendary performance on Good Friday at The Bank Stage during the Nantwich Jazz Festival. For anybody that missed either show don’t worry as they are booked in for Good Friday 2020, full line up will be announced after Christmas.”
