We've had an awesome year so far. We have begun to play more dates around Ontario and many more in Toronto. Thank you very much for all the support.

The Queen Is Dead play our last gig of the year at Cherry Cola's Rock n' Rolla Cabaret Lounge on Saturday November 30th. All The Smiths all night.

Please check out the Gigs page for currently confirmed 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.
