When Queen's Freddie Mercury, left, died in 1991 from AIDS-related illnesses, he left a gaping hole in the music world. Saturday, at Clearwater's Ruth Eckerd Hall, we can get the next closest thing to Freddie and the gang back together. "One Night of Queen — The Music of Queen" will be performed by Gary Mullen & the Works, a British act that has earned the respect of the very band they emulate. (Guitarist Brian May frequently praises their shows.) Expect a night of classics — Another One Bites the Dust, We Will Rock You, We Are the Champions, Killer Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody — performed by Mullen, who replicates the showmanship of Mercury flawlessly. Even the stage is nearly identical to Queen shows in the 1980s. Tickets are $53 and $42.50. The show starts at 8. (727) 791-7400.
