Oklahoma, here we come! There’s a new Freddie Mercury in town! Rock-boy Eric Heiman is paying tribute to the legendary Queen in a special night in Tulsa described as a celebration of rock’s most epic bands in history. “Queen is very iconic and not just anybody does a show like this,” Erik tells Abbanibi.com, “I thought it was super challenging and I knew I had the right people to make it the best it could be”
When he says ‘the right people’ he basically means Noah E. Spiegel the director of production at Tulsa Opera, who produced all-time Queen favorites like “We Are The Champions” and “I Want To Break Free” in a very unique way and designed both for a sit down and a proper listen, or to sing-a-long. “I Met Noah earlier this year through working with the Tulsa Pride organization,” as Heiman explains the connection between the two. ” I asked him with his Opera experience if he wanted to help out with this”. Spiegel also brought a few members of the Tulsa Opera choir for a special guest appearance in ‘Bohemian Rapsody’ (and more).

Finally, we asked Eric about Adam Lambert & Queen’s latest collaboration. “I haven’t heard Adam with Queen yet so I have nothing to compare it too,” Heiman replies. “But anyone who steps up to perform their music gets my full respect!”
