It's been a year where we've all felt under pressure, but one upcoming concert will help you break free (excuse the puns).

The Bohemians, a Queen tribute band, will perform at Dubai Opera on November 19, bringing the best of the British rock band's hits to the UAE.

The tribute act, which was formed in 1996, draws from Queen's back catalogue of '70s and '80s, with songs in their repertoire including Killer Queen, Don’t Stop Me Now and We Will Rock You.

The original band was founded in 1970, bringing together Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon with powerhouse singer Freddie Mercury.

Queen, who still tour together with vocalist Adam Lambert, following Mercury's death in 1991, are among the world's biggest-selling bands.

Their hits also include We Are The Champions, Bohemian Rhapsody and Don't Stop Me Now, and in 2018 the band was presented the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

The Bohemians, which are fronted by pianist and singer Rob Comber, will take to the stage at 8pm for their The Best of Queen show.

Aside from the songs, even the tribute band's costumes and instruments are based on those used at Queen's concerts.

Tickets start at Dh145, which includes a beverage.

The concert joins Dubai Opera's upcoming autumn line-up, which also includes performances by comedians Nemr, Michelle Wolf and Mo Amer.
