The rock group Queen had their debut performance at the Marquee Theater in London on this date in 1973.
Although the guys got together in late 1971, it would be well over a year of reheasing and refining the Queen sound before they were ready to debut.
A week after their debut performance, eponymous debut album Queen launched with moderate success in the UK. Their second effort, Queen II, didn’t do much better. It was not until their 3rd studio album, Sheer Heart Attack, did Queen gain international acceptance.
Lead singer Freddie Mercury died of Aids on November 24, 1991.
