The J.P. Morgan Premiership Rugby 7s Cup took place at Old Reigations RFC on Saturday 18th May and was a day full of fast-running, thrilling rugby.
Killer Queen formed back in 1993. Their first public shows were at London
University, following in the footsteps of the real Queen who had played their first
shows there 21 years earlier.
By 1995 Killer Queen's UK popularity had grown to such an extent they secured a
residency in London's Strand Theatre attracting nationwide BBC coverage - the first
tribute to have a show in the West End .
The band's reputation continued to grow both in the UK and abroad. In 1999 they
returned from a tour of Europe and Russia for an awards ceremony in Leicester
Square, hosted by Suggs from Madness. He announced they had won the award for
"Worldwide Best Tribute Band".

musicianship is outstanding. During their various careers the musicians have worked
and recorded with a vast array of artistes including Roger Taylor, Brian May and
Monseratte Caballe. The band also scored a number one hit when they they were
asked to recreate Queen's harmionies for "The Real Life" with Fatboy Slim in 2001.

The next year Killer Queen joined forces with Bjorn Again and The Bootleg Beatles
for a Waverly Stadium show in Edinburgh. It was this performance that led to the
band being selected to represent Queen in a restaged tribute LiveAid concert held by
Sir Bob Geldof. They performed with him at his arena charity concert to raise funds
for the homeless.
