It’s a huge deal when you can combine one of rock’s all-time biggest names with a truly unique opportunity to raise money for a good cause, and we’re simply over the moon that we get to witness Steven Tyler, front man of iconic rock band Aerosmith, belt out tunes while raising money for Akron Children’s Hospital.

Killer Queen is the tribute band that Queen lovers can’t miss. Fans say that their concerts are “uncannily accurate,” “scarily real,” and that they are the “kings of impersonators.” You would almost believe that you’re back at Wembley Stadium in 1986 watching the real band perform. Catch them at Hard Rock Rocksino on July 6th!
