How Zionist Israel Celebrated Its 70th Anniversary

Download free computerized mp3 audio file of this column


Three days ago, Jared and Ivanka Kushner, Steven Mnuchin, Sheldon Adelson, Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Dean Heller (R-NV), along with House members Joe Wilson (R-SC) and Lee Zeldin (R-NY) and Florida Republican Governor Rick Scott, joined Benjamin Netanyahu and his Zionist government in celebrating the 70th anniversary of Rothschild’s Israel. (Evangelical Christian leaders Robert Jeffress, John Hagee, Paula White, Ralph Reed, Jim Garlow, Lourdes Aguirre, Ramiro Pena and Jay Strack were also there.) But the real celebration wasn’t the one attended by Kushner and Company; it was the one that took place on the IDF (Israel Defense Forces) killing fields just a few miles away. And that “celebration” mirrored the way Israel has spent its entire 70-year existence: by committing mass violence and murder against defenseless Palestinians.


The indigenous people of Palestine have been subjected to some of the cruelest and most inhumane treatment at the hands of the Zionist government of Israel ever since Zionists came to power on May 14, 1948. And May 14, 2018, was no different.


At least 58 unarmed (unless you count slingshots and stones against armored tanks, machine guns and .50 caliber sniper rifles as being “armed”) Palestinian protesters were mowed down by Israeli gunfire. Over 1,300 were wounded. And let’s not forget the relentless, non-stop air strikes against Syria by the Israeli air force since Donald Trump announced his withdrawal from the Iranian treaty a little over one week ago.


Gordon Duff, Senior Editor of Veterans Today, writes:


On May 14, 2018, while an American delegation which included the purported slum lord Jared Kushner, a US Embassy opened in Jerusalem in violation of four Senate ratified treaties and the fourth Geneva Convention, Netanyahu decided to strike.


With Americans on Israeli soil and engaged in a solemn ceremony in defiance of human rights and the laws of man and God, America and Israel joined in the ritual slaughter of Palestinian innocents…at least 58 are killed and another 1,350 were injured by Israeli gunfire.


Duff then posts a column by Steve Robertson (that includes photos and videos) detailing the absolute horror routinely inflicted upon the Palestinian people by Israel’s Zionist government:


There was clear and undeniable video evidence that showed four Palestinian children playing soccer on the beaches of Gaza being shelled, dismembered and murdered by an Israeli naval gunboat. F-16 fighter jets, provided by the U.S., regularly drop laser guided one-ton phosphorus bombs on densely populated areas. A phosphorus bomb, for those unfamiliar with it, detonates on the ground and blankets the area with flying molten metal. When this molten metal lands on someone, a small child or an adult, the metal boils through the skin and can’t be put out…even if someone were to jump in a swimming pool.


U.S. provided, Apache helicopters are used [to] machine gun strafe, in-other-words spray bullets, throughout civilian areas. Each day Palestinian people, people just like you and me, are forcefully challenged year in and year out to go through armed military checkpoints when traveling to work, going to buy food or visiting family or friends. Each day the Palestinians must endure multiple hour long checkpoint delays, each of which are engineered to intentionally harass . . . and humiliate.


Palestinian property and homes are regularly and illegally seized and/or bulldozed to the ground. How many of you have heard about the young American peace activist Rachel Corrie who courageously stood in front of [a] Caterpillar bulldozer to protect the home of a Palestinian doctor from being bulldozed to the ground? Protesters who rallied around her watched in horror as the bulldozer operator ran over her and then backed up and ran over her again. She died as a result of these injuries.


As Israel controls the electrical power and water supply grids within the region, they psychologically and logistically turn off and on these services as they so choose. Often power and or water is available for just a few hours a day. Imagine, if you will, the impact on any home, your home, if you were forced to endure this. No power equals no water pumps [which] means no water to drink, cook with or wash in. No power means that your food spoils because the refrigerator doesn’t work. It also means live or die basic hospital equipment is inoperable. Life saving ICU equipment, nursery incubators don’t work and emergency or scheduled operations can’t be performed. Add to this that the basic infrastructure of schools have been bombed to the ground and/or have no basic utilities from which to operate.


[The] Israeli military [often] fire . . . tear gas canisters into Palestinian homes where parents have no means whatsoever of protecting their infants and small children from choking on these toxins and related lung/nervous system damage they cause.


Robertson further writes:


Palestinian parents regularly and defenselessly witness their children being kidnapped by the Israeli military. [The children are] imprisoned and tortured in Israel’s gulags and will likely never be seen again.


In addition to this, there are reports of Israel harvesting organs from children. Yes, America’s greatest Democratic ally in the Middle East region appears to [be] regularly farming children for their organs. . . . Thus far, some 300,000 Palestinians are among the disappeared [that fill] the mass graves of the Negev.

Forgiveness In The Face Of Israel’s Great Global Arrogance and Cruel Indifference Towards Palestinians


Writing for GlobalResearch.com, Joyce Chediac writes:


More than anything, Israel is an agent of war, since its formation.


Just a day after the Trump administration exited the Nuclear Accord with Iran, in a coordinated move, Israel violated the sovereign borders of Syria and bombed what it called “Iranian positions” there. The provocative nature of these attacks, and bombings days later, were to draw Syria and its allies into an escalating conflict. Israel’s internal name for its strikes—”Chess.”


Israel has attacked all bordering countries, some, like Lebanon, repeatedly and for decades. It occupied or annexed all of historic Palestine and territory from Lebanon, Egypt, Syria and Jordan. This not because it had to do so to survive. It is because imperialism backed the formation of Israel on stolen Palestinian land, not as a homeland for Jewish people but as an agent of war against Arab independence [or better, their independence from the Rothschild/Federal Reserve central bank]. The Holocaust survivors who populated it were meant to fight and die for imperialism. To this end, the U.S. has given this country of 8.5 million people $254 billion (2016 dollars) since its formation. Most of this is in sophisticated offensive weapons and spy equipment. Israel has been constantly at war with its neighbors for the benefit of U.S. imperialism. [I would counter that it’s not for the U.S. as much as it’s for the New World Order globalists who control U.S. foreign policy.]


She goes on to write:


Israel claims to be a democracy and a Jewish homeland. This “democracy” published in  January a list of 20 human rights organizations whose members would be banned from the country. This included Jewish groups like Jewish Voice for Peace that support some form of Palestinian rights.


A state that claims to be a refuge from anti-Semitism has twisted the definition of the term to include those who oppose the policies of the Netanyahu regime, many of them war crimes. It has launched an international campaign to get other governments to accept this patently false definition and make it legally binding. This is aimed at the movement to Boycott, Divest and Sanction Israel, which calls for an end to the occupation of Palestine, equal rights for Palestinian citizens of Israel, and the right of return for all Palestinian refugees to their homes.


In the U.S., both Democratic and Republican legislatures have happily complied. Such a bill is currently pending before the U.S. Congress, and 23 states have pass laws outlawing BDS as “anti-Semitic.”

Israel At Seventy: Symbol Of War, Racism, Reaction  


Sadly, most evangelical Christians will have no desire to read or listen to anything critical of Zionist Israel, because they have been totally and completely indoctrinated in Scofield dispensationalism and Israel-centered prophetic futurism.


From Liberty University (LU) to Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS), from John Hagee to Robert Jeffress, and from Pat Robertson to Tim LaHaye, evangelical Christians have been immersed in the notion that the advent of Rothschild’s Zionist State of Israel in 1948 is a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy and that the state itself is a burgeoning fulfillment of Jehovah’s covenants with Abraham and David. They are further convinced that God’s promise to Abraham, “I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee” (Genesis 12:3 KJV), applies to the Rothschild State of Israel created in 1948.


Believe me: I understand the way they think perfectly, because I used to think the exact same way—for over 30 years. That is, until I began to prayerfully and carefully study the issue for myself, only to find that Scofield and LU and DTS and Hagee and Jeffress and Robertson and LaHaye, et al. are wrong. The Rothschild Zionist State of Israel is NOT the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy; it is NOT a burgeoning fulfillment of the covenants God made with Abraham and David; Netanyahu and his fellow Zionists are NOT God’s “chosen people”; and God’s promise to Abraham, “I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee,” does NOT remotely apply to the Rothschild state created in 1948.


And perhaps nothing Jesus taught applies more accurately to the Zionist State of Israel than these words: “Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” (Matthew 7:20 KJV)


Rothschild Zionism—since even before Israel’s inception, and even more following its inception— has produced chaos and carnage, destruction and death that is unparalleled in human history. And the impact of modern Israel on human suffering staggers the imagination.


Gideon Polya writes:


Presently there are 16 million avoidable deaths from deprivation and deprivation-exacerbated disease each year globally and there have been 1,500 million such deaths since 1950 (this including 600 million Muslims), this carnage being significantly linked to continuing Zionist perversion of US aid and foreign policy.


There have been 32 million Muslim deaths from violence, 5 million, or from deprivation, 27 million, in 20 countries invaded by the pro-Zionist US Alliance in the US War on Terror (US War on Muslims) since the US Government’s 9-11 false flag atrocity in which Apartheid Israel is very likely to have been complicit.


There have been millions of refugees generated and millions of Indigenous deaths from violence or imposed deprivation in countries subject to Apartheid Israeli-backed, genocidal civil wars, notably Guatemala, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Syria, Sudan and South Sudan.


There have been 28 million American preventable deaths since 9-11 (1.7 million annually) that are inescapably linked to Zionist-beholden US Governments committing to a $40 trillion long-term accrual cost of supporting Apartheid Israel, this including a $7 trillion long-term accrual cost for the killing of millions of Muslims abroad in the Zionist-promoted War on Terror instead of keeping millions of Americans alive at home. Australia has similarly committed to $11 billion per year long-term to the War on Terror ($176 billion since 9-11) with this fiscal perversion linked to 1.4 million preventable Australian deaths since 9-11 (85,000 annually). Canada has similarly committed hugely to the War on Terror with this inescapably linked to 0.1 million Canadian preventable deaths annually or 1.7 million preventable deaths in Canada since 9-11. The UK has similarly committed hugely to the War on Terror with this linked in terms of fiscal deprivation to 0.15 million UK preventable deaths annually or 2.5 million preventable deaths in the UK since the 9-11 atrocity that killed 3,000 people.

70th Anniversary Of Apartheid Israel: History Of Violent Invasion. Chronology Of Palestinian Genocide     


Yet, to Scofield-zombied evangelicals, all of this death and destruction is considered not only “acceptable” but part of “God’s plan.” They believe that the Rothschild State of Israel is destined to usher in the return of Christ. But not before the antichrist takes over Israel, of course, and destroys a large percentage of the world’s population. Not to worry, however, because these Israel-obsessed evangelicals believe they will escape all of this death and destruction via the “Rapture.”


Evangelicals also attempt to justify Israel’s murder and genocide of millions of innocent people by trying to compare this death and destruction by the Zionist state to God’s direct commands to Old Testament Israel (through Moses) to defeat the nations of the Old Testament Promised Land. But there is absolutely NO comparison. Lionel Walter Rothschild, Theodor Herzi, Chaim Weizmann and Benjamin Netanyahu are NOT Moses. These men didn’t (or don’t in the case of Netanyahu) even recognize Jesus Christ as being the Jews’ Messiah or the world’s Savior. (And as every evangelical Christian should know, Jehovah of the Old Testament and Jesus Christ of the New Testament are ONE.) These men subscribed (or subscribe in the case of Netanyahu) to Talmudism, which is nothing more than the continuation of the pagan religion of the Pharisees in Jesus and the Apostles’ day. Back in May of 2014, Netanyahu even recognized the law that will “establish the Talmud, the core work of Jewish law, as an official basis for Israeli state law.”  


To equate the acts of a group of Christ-rejecting, Christ-hating Talmudists who murdered and are murdering millions of people for the sake of power and wealth to the acts of God’s great Old Testament prophet, deliverer and lawgiver, Moses, is nothing short of blasphemy.


But evangelicals do seem to have one thing right: This Zionist State of Israel created in 1948 has already partially fulfilled the antichrist agenda of bringing death and destruction to the world, as noted above. Unfortunately, one thing they may not be counting on is that when the antichrist agenda being accomplished through Israel comes to fruition, it may include the death and destruction of the United States—and when that happens, the “Rapture” may not come in time to save them.


In the meantime, the celebration of modern Israel’s 70th anniversary this week was merely a continuation of what Zionist Israel has celebrated since the day it was conceived: death and destruction.


P.S. I, again, invite readers to watch my eight-message, two-DVD series The Church And Israel.


As I said, I had been schooled in and personally believed and taught Israel-based Bible prophecy for over 30 years. After MUCH prayer, deliberation and personal study, however, I came to realize that everything I had been taught and had myself taught on the subject was patently FALSE. I now realize that the Zionist State of Israel created in 1948 has NOTHING to do with Biblical Israel.


These two DVDs containing eight messages explain the basic, foundational scriptural truth relative to the subject of Israel that must first be comprehended in order to understand the full teaching of Scripture on the matter. I consider these eight messages to be “Biblical Israel 101.”

Five Fast Facts You Need to Know On the Anniversary of Osama Bin Laden’s Death

OsamaOsama

Washington, D.C. – Although the U.S. government has always maintained that the operation to find and kill Osama bin Laden was some Hollywoodish “Zero Dark Thirty” blockbuster action thriller, the reality exposed by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh set the record straight regarding the Obama administration’s extensive and repeated lies about the events and circumstances that led to the assassination bin Laden—and the subsequent cover-up/propaganda campaign undertaken by the U.S. government in the wake of his killing.

In an explosive report in the London Review of Books, an exclusive interview with Alternet and in his book “The Killing of Osama bin Laden,” Hersh gives strong evidence that the Obama administration lied repeatedly and extensively about the circumstances and events that led to Osama bin Laden’s assassination on May 2, 2011.

Hersh blew the lid off of the narrative the American public has been spoon fed for over a decade, including several explosive claims that expose the official narrative sold to the U.S. public as nothing more than political propaganda meant to burnish then-President Obama’s military credentials, including the fact that Saudi Arabia paid Pakistan to keep bin Laden hidden to prevent possible questioning by the United States.

In fact, to kick off this list of five facts, Hersch revealed that the Pakistani ISI knew of bin Laden’s whereabouts in Abbottabad as early as 2006, and the Saudi government was able to bribe the Pakistanis into not telling the U.S.

“The Saudis bribed the Pakistanis not to tell us [that the Pakistani government had bin Laden] because they didn’t want us interrogating bin Laden (that’s my best guess), because he would’ve talked to us, probably,” Hersh explained, regarding the description in his book about the bin Laden compound receiving financial support from the Saudis in an interview with Alternet. “My guess is, we don’t know anything really about 9/11.”

When asked whether the Saudi money was from an individual or the government, Hersh replied, “The money was from the government … what the Saudis were doing, so I’ve been told by reasonable people … is that they were also passing along tankers of oil for the Pakistanis to resell.”

Here are four more largely unknown facts that expose the official U.S. narrative about finding and killing Osama bin Laden to be a fraudulent piece of propaganda sold to an unsuspecting American public:

1. The U.S. government has consistently claimed that it acted alone in locating and killing bin Laden when in reality it worked hand-in-hand with the Pakistani government.

Contrary to these claims, Hersch, citing interviews with “a retired senior intelligence official who was knowledgeable about the initial intelligence about bin Laden’s presence in Abbottabad” as well as American sources who “had access to corroborating information,” says the U.S. in no way acted alone, and that senior Pakistani officials worked in concert with the U.S. to assassinate bin Laden.

In fact, according to Hersh, the “most blatant lie” was that “Pakistan’s two most senior military leaders—General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, chief of the army staff, and General Ahmed Shuja Pasha, director general of the ISI—were never informed” of the U.S. raid on bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound in advance.

2. There was no firefight. The entire operation was a coordinated killing with Pakistani ISI escorting the SEALs around bin Laden’s compound.

Although the U.S. public was sold a story that there was a firefight in which U.S. Navy SEALs raided the Bin Laden compound, Hersh claims that there was no firefight and the only shots fired that night were the ones that killed bin Laden.

In fact, the entire situation was set up by the Pakistani government who had been holding bin Laden prisoner since 2006. Bin Laden was simply made available to the SEALs who flew under cover of darkness to the Abbottabad compound with an officer from the ISI, the Pakistani intelligence service, who escorted them around the compound upon arrival.

3. There was no walk-in or Pakistani doctor that procured bin Laden’s DNA.

To hide the complicity of the Pakistani government in the operation, the Obama administration lied about how bin Laden was found, claiming that a “walk-in” to the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad tipped off the CIA that bin Laden was living in the Abbottabad compound when in reality this was not even remotely true.

U.S. officials disingenuously claimed bin Laden had then been found by the CIA, which had traced back one of bin Laden’s couriers to his compound, subsequently building a circumstantial case that bin Laden was living there. The elaborate story fabricated by the U.S. included claims that a Pakistani army doctor obtained DNA from bin Laden that proved he was in Abbottabad.

4. bin Laden was not given an Islamic burial. His body was dismembered by SEAL gunfire and thrown out of a chopper over the Hindu Kush mountains.

Although the U.S. claimed it gave Osama bin Laden a burial at sea, the al-Qaeda chief’s body was torn to pieces by rifle fire with some parts of his dismembered body tossed out over the Hindu Kush mountains. Hersch said there was no Islamic burial for bin Laden aboard the USS Carl Vinson, and that U.S. officials’ assertions as such were lies meant to cover up the political-religious inflammatory truth of his body’s desecration.

“With Obama’s announcement of his killing by the SEALs everyone now expected a body to be produced. Instead, reporters were told that bin Laden’s body had been flown by the Seals to an American military airfield in Jalalabad, Afghanistan, and then straight to the USS Carl Vinson, a supercarrier on routine patrol in the North Arabian Sea,” Hersh said in his article in the London Review of Books.

“One consultant told me that bin Laden’s remains were photographed and identified after being flown back to Afghanistan. The consultant added: ‘At that point, the CIA took control of the body. The cover story was that it had been flown to the Carl Vinson.’ The second consultant agreed that there had been ‘no burial at sea’,” Hersh said.

Hersh quoted an unnamed retired senior U.S. intelligence official who was knowledgeable about the initial intelligence about Osama’s presence in Pakistan’s Abbottabad for his reporting.

“The retired official said there had been another complication: some members of the Seal team had bragged to colleagues and others that they had torn bin Laden’s body to pieces with rifle fire. The remains, including his head, which had only a few bullet holes in it, were thrown into a body bag and, during the helicopter flight back to Jalalabad, some body parts were tossed out over the Hindu Kush mountains—or so the Seals claimed,” Hersh stated.

It is important to remember that Seymour Hersh is no run-of-the-mill journalist, as he is one of the most influential investigative journalists in recent American history—breaking two of the biggest stories about modern U.S. war atrocities with his account of the 1968 My Lai massacre during the Vietnam War and with his 2004 revelation of the U.S. Army abuse of detainees at Abu Ghraib prison.

Hersh’s account of the bin Laden raid is diametrically opposed to the version sold to the American public by the Obama administration. The reality is that authorizing the raid that killed Bin Laden was said to be one of Obama’s greatest accomplishments, and the administration was not going to let the truth get in the way of that.

Thus, the administration undertook a rewrite of reality to create a version of events that would be more politically palatable for all parties involved. Obama gets to look like a hero, and Pakistan doesn’t get maligned domestically for handing Osama bin Laden, who was extremely popular in Pakistan, over to the United States.

B & Rakim and EPMD. Its influence in bringing light to this genre cannot be overstated.

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the ground-breaking show, an all-star concert featuring some of the shows most iconic artists will take place at Brooklyn’s Barclay Center on June 1. Artists including Doug E. Fresh, Big Daddy Kane, Flavor Flav of Public Enemy, Melle Mel & the Furious Five, the Pharcyde, Brand Nubian, Onyx, Black Sheep and Kid Capri with regular show hosts Fab 5 Freddy, T-MoneyEd Lover and Doctor Dré on hand to keep the show moving.

Ms. Lauryn Hill coming to Red Rocks as part of ‘Miseducation’ 20th anniversary tour

It’s hard to overstate the impact The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill has had on pop culture. Hill’s 1998 studio album was a commercial and critical smash; on the strength of singles like “Doo Wop (That Thing)” and “Everything is Everything,” the album went 8x platinum and won five Grammys, including Album of the Year, making it the first hip-hop record to earn the prestigious award. Yet even beyond those obvious signposts of success, Miseducation still has a vibrant, timeless quality that marks it as one of the most influential albums ever released. Acclaimed new R&B artists like SZA are clearly indebted to the album’s clever, vulnerable numbers like “Ex-Factor,” while rapper/ singer duel threats like Drake are obviously descendents of her pansophic talent (in fact, Drizzy made this connection explicit by sampling “Ex-Factor” on his latest hit “Nice For What“).

In honor of the 20th anniversary of one of the most monumental albums of our time, Ms. Lauryn Hill his heading out on a summer tour in which she’ll perform her debut solo album in full. The tour kicks off on July 5 in Virginia Beach and includes a Sept. 26 concert at Colorado’s iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Tickets for that show go on sale this Friday, April 20; grab yours right here on AXS.com.

In a statement announcing the tour, Hill reflected on the album’s genesis and the impact it can have in 2018:

“This album chronicled an intimate piece of my young existence. It was the summation of most, if not all, of my most hopeful and positive emotions experienced to that date. I Loved and believed deeply in my community’s ability to both Love and heal itself provided it received the right amount of support and encouragement. Our world today, both complex and changing, is in need of the balance between moral fortitude and cathartic expression. I hope the Love and energy that permeated this work can continue to inspire change with Love and optimism at the helm.”

To that end, Pitchfork reports that “a portion of ticket sales will go to the MLH Foundation, which supports education, health, agriculture, technology, and community-based initiatives.”

Celebrating one of the greatest albums ever made at one of the greatest venues on Earth for a great cause should result in a lot of Love for both the audience and performer. Click here for tickets and keep it on AXS.com for more on Ms. Lauryn Hill’s tour.

Deir Yassin outrage remembered: 70th anniversary

Stuart Littlewood writes:

“Misled and criminal people” caused 100 innocent civilians murdered and 50 children orphaned in a systematic slaughter of a peaceful village

Today is the 70th anniversary of the Deir Yassin massacre, one of many committed in the vicious frenzy of the Zionists’ land grab. Here is an account of that appalling event.

Early in the morning of 9 April 1948, commandos of the Irgun (headed by Menachem Begin) and the Stern Gang attacked Deir Yassin, a village with about 750 Palestinian residents. The village lay outside of the area to be assigned by the United Nations to the Jewish State; it had a peaceful reputation. But it was located on high ground in the corridor between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Deir Yassin was slated for occupation under Plan Dalet and the mainstream Jewish defence force, the Haganah, authorised the irregular terrorist forces of the Irgun and the Stern Gang to perform the takeover.

In all over 100 men, women and children were systematically murdered. Fifty-three orphaned children were literally dumped along the wall of the Old City, where they were found by Miss Hind Husseini and brought behind the American Colony Hotel to her home, which was to become the Dar El-Tifl El-Arabi orphanage.

Part of the struggle for self-determination by Palestinians has been to tell the truth about Palestinians as victims of Zionism. For too long their history has been denied, and this denial has only served to further oppress and deliberately dehumanize Palestinians in Israel, inside the occupied territories and outside in their diaspora.

Some progress has been made. Westerners now realise that Palestinians, as a people, do exist. And they have come to acknowledge that during the creation of the state of Israel, thousands of Palestinians were killed and over 700,000 were driven or frightened from their homes and lands on which they had lived for centuries.

The 9 April 1948 was before the state of Israel was declared. But already atrocities were being committed as Jewish militia and terror gangs tried to seize as much key territory as possible, overrunning the boundaries set out in the UN’s 1947 Partition Plan.

The next day Albert Einstein penned this letter to the director of American Friends of the Fighters for the Freedom of Israel which raised money to support Jewish terrorists such as the notorious Stern Gang and had tried to solicit Einstein’s help.

In it Einstein blames responsibility for the coming catastrophe on the British and the terrorist organisation from the Zionist Jews’ own ranks, saying he would not see anyone associated with those “misled and criminal people”.

Which goes to show that you don’t have to be a genius to know who caused the current misery and strife in the Holy Land.

Killer Queen returning to Red Rocks on 25th anniversary tour

2018 marks the 25th anniversary of the first shows by the London-based Queen tribute band Killer Queen. A quarter century career is quite an accomplishment for any band (Queen itself lasted just 21 years before frontman Freddie Mercury succumbed to AIDS-related illness in 1991), much less a group of college friends who never planned on playing more than a few shows for fun.

But Killer Queen is not only still performing, they’re thriving. Case in point: The band has booked its second headlining show at Colorado’s iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre as part of their upcoming U.S. tour. Killer Queen will hit Red Rocks on Wednesday, July 25. Tickets for the show will go on sale to the general public on Friday, March 23; grab yours right here on AXS.com.

Killer Queen’s history is nearly as rich as their forebearers. The band’s popularity exploded shortly after forming in June 1993, thanks in no small part to the band’s killer interpretations of the Queen catalog and frontman Patrick Myers’ uncanny similarity to Mercury’s look and sound. By 1995, the were booked for a residency on London’s West End, becoming the first-ever tribute act to receive such an honor.

Since then, the band’s stature has only grown, as they’ve performed at and sold out many of the same venues that Queen played during their heyday. Killer Queen’s Red Rocks performance is a particular point of pride, with Myers’ singling out their Red Rocks show in a recent retrospective video, which you can watch above.

Their return to Red Rocks in July should be a special night for the band. Click here for tickets to see Killer Queen on July 25 at Red Rocks and keep it on AXS.com for plenty more on the band.
