Hello - I am Steve Miller, Queen fan and guitarist of tribute band QUEENESQUE and I have got an idea which I need YOUR help with...

For the Queen's platinum jubilee weekend, on Sunday 5th June 2022, I will be attempting to re-create Brian May's iconic playing of "God Save The Queen" for the Her Majesty's golden jubilee on the roof of Buckingham Palace 20 years ago.

Now, I don't think I will get access to the palace roof, so instead I thought it would be fun to try and play on as many roofs (or balconies)
as I can around north west England (where I live) within 12 hours..and hopefully raise a few quid for charity along the way.
This project and this webpage are a WORK IN PROGRESS, so please KEEP CHECKING BACK...


SO WHAT'S THE PLAN?

Well, I am still in the "concept stages" of planning at the moment - but the idea is to do a whirwind tour of interesting (and safe!) rooftops in the NW, playing the national anthem on electric guitar. I am going to see how many different roofs in different places I can play within 12 hours - we might even set a record!

I am inviting suggestions of locations to play at, and hopefully I will be able to create a route and a schedule over the coming weeks. Once I know where I will be, and roughly when I will be there I will publish the schedule.


WHAT ARE THE CHARITIES?

I hope folks might sponsor me to do this crazy sceheme in support of two great causes;

COMIC RELIEF - Because they know how to do wonderful things with people's hard earned money and change lives - and Comic Relief has given me a lot of laughs over the years. You can DONATE HERE (via JUST GIVING)

THE MERCURY PHOENIX TRUST - Freddie's charity, ..because....well...I want to thank Queen for the pure joy they have given me. You can DONATE HERE (via JUST GIVING)



SO WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP?

Well apart from donating of course, there are loads of things I need help with...I have not done anything like this before so I am figuring things out as I go along.


1 - I NEED ROOFS TO PLAY ON - I am looking for safe and suitable rooftops (or balconies) to be able to perform on, in NW England - especially for jubilee events. Ideally I would like a PA system (does not have to be huge) in place with 1 audio input for me to plug into.

2 - I NEED HELP SPREADING THE WORD - Please help me with social media and other ways of spreading the idea around. Any media assistance is gratefully received.

3 - PLEASE COME ALONG AND SUPPORT ME! - When I know my schedule I will let you all know here.
