Special guest from London, where he works as official archivist for Queen will appear at Vzpomínka. His signature is under most recently released projects (CD´s, DVD´s, books) related to Queen. The biggest projects he worked on are Freddie Mercury Box Set and Queen Live book. He has been working at the new Barcelona album version at the moment. Greg was given job from the band due to big knowledge he has made as a long-time Queen fan.
At our convention he will talk about his work for Queen and about the band´s archive. He will also play some rare and valuable records from the archive – most of them were never seen and heard before and are not at YouTube!
Queen Unplugged Project
Every gig of these four guys from Hungary is special. Their versions of Queen songs are very original and are played with great musical skills. Even though it is an acoustic set, it has strong energy and fast tempo. We can guarantee that you won´t remain sitting during the show! QUP will arrive with new set-list, prepared especially for our event.
