– Killer Queen will be performing a tribute to Queen’s discography at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) as part of the venue’s summer concert series.
– The concert will be a ‘pavilion-only’ event, with no lawn seats available, and SPAC is a cashless venue with cash-to-card kiosks for those who need them.
Get ready, folks. The Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC), a place more magical than Hogwarts and a mecca for the musically inclined, is wrapping up its summer with a pretty little bow, and the gift inside it is none other than a sensational performance by Killer Queen. Now don’t be fooled by the name, folks. Despite their murderous moniker, the only thing Killer Queen slays is Queen’s discography, bringing you a phenomenal tribute to the legends of rock and roll.
Now, before you dust off your picnic blanket for those lovely lawn seats that SPAC usually offers, let me deliver a reality check. This isn’t your usual ‘spread-out-your-blanket’ kinda soiree. It’s a ‘pavilion-only’ event. Say what? Yep, you heard me right. No lawn seats, which means you and your blanket are going to have to sit this one out. But don’t worry, the official SPAC website or Live Nation has got your ticketing needs covered.
And if you thought that was the only curveball, brace yourselves. SPAC has declared itself a ‘cashless’ venue. I mean, who carries cash these days, right? Fortunately for those who still believe in the power of paper, there are cash-to-card kiosks generously sprinkled throughout the venue. So, if you’ve been hoarding those bills, now might be a good time to let go.
Now, you’d think getting there early might get you a good parking spot, right? Well, not exactly. Parking spaces open at 6pm for a nominal fee of $10 USD per vehicle. I’d suggest turning that clock-watching into an art form if you want to snag a spot. As for the gates, those open half an hour later. And at the stroke of 7:30pm, Killer Queen takes the stage.
Did I mention there’s a baggage policy too? Apparently, SPAC has a strict ‘no nonsense’ policy when it comes to bags. So, be sure to check up on that on the official SPAC website before you end up lugging around a suitcase only to get turned away at the door. And remember, kiddos aged two and over need a ticket. Seems a tad harsh, don’t you think?
Looking back at the 2023 Capital Region concerts, it’s quite the musical fiesta we’ve had. From intimate club performances to stadium spectacles, we’ve seen it all. And tonight, we get a taste of nostalgia with Killer Queen’s renditions of Queen’s epic hits. It’s like rummaging through your parents’ vinyl collection, only way cooler.
So, buckle up, concertgoers. Tonight, we bid adieu to SPAC’s summer concert series with this intimate ode to Queen. It’s nostalgia, it’s music, it’s an evening you won’t forget. Just be sure to stick to the rules and you’re in for a treat, my friends.
