2020 is turning out to be an odd year... 

We really appreciate the support we've received thus far.

The Queen Is Dead like everyone else, is waiting to see how things progress.

Please be safe and check out the Gigs page for any future shows. Thank you.


The Queen Is Dead are a Toronto based tribute to legendary Manchester band THE SMITHS.

Since our debut gig in August of 2017 we have built a solid reputation for performing top quality renditions of THE SMITHS back catalog of classic melancholic pop.

Building on a strong following we have played various venues throughout Toronto and other Canadian towns and cities.

The Queen Is Dead are constantly changing up the set list to keep the performances fresh and ensure we play all the material any fan of THE SMITHS would enjoy.

Each member of the band has many years of professional musical experience, both live and in studio.
