The world’s leading Queen tribute band, Killer Queen, formed 1993, playing their first public shows at London University, where Queen had played their first shows 21 years earlier. By 1995, Killer Queen’s UK popularity had grown to such an extent that they secured a residency in London’s Strand Theatre attracting nationwide BBC coverage – the first tribute to have a show in the West End. Before long, they were touring throughout the world and racking up awards; they accepted the award of “Worldwide Best Tribute Band” in 1999 at a ceremony hosted by Suggs of Madness and the “Best Concert of the Year” award in 2009 at Sweden’s Vasteras concert hall. Killer Queen is the only tribute to have sold out the same arenas as Queen did in their heyday, such as Ahoy Stadium and the Brighton Centre, and are regulars at some of America’s most prestigious venues such as the awe-inspiring Red Rocks Arena in Colorado, where the Beatles, Springsteen and U2 have all graced the stage, and Austin City Limits. Killer Queen’s likeness to the group is so uncanny that they were selected to represent Queen in a re-staged tribute LiveAid concert held by Sit Bob Geldof and were asked to recreate Queen’s harmonies for #1 hit, “The Real Life.” Killer Queen will be live at The Carolina Opry Theater, for one night only, on July 21, 2019 at 7:00pm. Tickets are on sale now. To buy tickets call 800-843-6779, visit the box office or https://www.thecarolinaopry.com/event/killer-queen-2019/.

The current Gaither Vocal Band roster is comprised of a group of highly gifted artists and men of authentic faith. Together, they are known around the world for their powerhouse vocals, innovative harmonies, and life-altering message of grace, hope and redemption. The Gaither Vocal Band got its start in the early 1980s with four guys singing around a piano backstage before a Bill Gaither Trio concert. Gary McSpadden, Steve Green, Lee Young and Bill Gaither were just having fun, harmonizing on “Your First Day in Heaven” when Bill decided they should try out their new sound on a live audience that very night. The audience went wild… and that impromptu performance marked the beginning of an era. Now, for more than a quarter century, the Gaither Vocal Band has created a legacy of award-winning excellence that has forever raised the bar for male harmony. The list of men who have comprised the Gaither Vocal Band over the years reads like a “Who’s Who” among the gospel music industry’s best-loved voices. And, always at the helm, has been Bill Gaither, who has led the group out of his personal passion for great harmony and his genuine desire to bring meaningful music to a hurting world. The Grammy-winning, chart-busting success of the Gaither Vocal Band has far exceeded his wildest expectations. The Gaither Vocal Band will be at the Carolina Opry Theater for one night only, Sunday, October 20, 2019 at 6pm.

The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded in Moscow during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980s, when many of the great dancers and choreographers of the Soviet Union’s ballet institutions were exercising their new-found creative freedom by starting new, vibrant companies dedicated not only to the timeless tradition of classical Russian Ballet but to invigorate this tradition as the Russians began to accept new developments in the dance from around the world. The company, then titled the Soviet National Ballet, was founded by and incorporated graduates from the great Russian choreographic schools of Moscow, St. Petersburg and Perm. The principal dancers of the company came from the upper ranks of the great ballet companies and academies of Russia, and the companies of Riga, Kiev and even Warsaw. Today, the Russian National Ballet Theatre is its own institution, with over 50 dancers of singular instruction and vast experience, many of whom have been with the company since its inception. In addition to their extensive tour history, the company began touring the United States in 2017. The Russian National Ballet Theatre will be live at The Carolina Opry Theater performing Swan Lake, for one night only, on February 23, 2020 at 6:00pm. Tickets are on sale now.
