Experience the power and intensity of a Metallica concert -- on a far more approachable scale -- as tribute band Damage Inc comes to The Hangar. Based in Southern California, Damage Inc has spent more than a decade perfecting this tribute to the band that's now in its fourth decade of making hits like "One," "Enter Sandman," "Nothing Else Matters," "St. Anger" and "All Nightmare Long." Damage Inc's so good that they've played countless sold-out shows and been featured on AXS TV's The World's Greatest Tribute Bands. Learn More

My son (10 years old) likes Queen and since he will never see them live, this was a good outing. I had never seen a tribute band so did not expect much, but these guys did everything they could to "Be Queen" and pulled it off nicely. Excellent vocals and instrumentals. My wife, son and I thoroughly enjoyed this event and will be more likely to watch other tribute bands.
Queen Nation lead singer Joe Retta is a talented singer and performer who has an uncanny ability to totally assume the role of rock’s greatest icons. His role accomplishments include Ronnie James Dio, Paul Rogers, Robert Plant and of course Freddie Mercury. Joe can easily recreate the vocals of the late Queen frontman complete with his dead-on physical appearance and on-stage mannerisms.
In 2004, guitarist Mike McManus got a call from singer Joe Retta to complete the line-up for Queen Nation. Looking at it as a labor of love, Mike buckled down and began learning all the guitar parts and transcribing all the harmonies. Not an easy task! Mike stated “I didn’t think I could gain any more respect for Brian May and Queen than I already had… My respect for them DOUBLED when I sat down to learn these songs!” His hard work led to an endorsement with Burns Guitars, maker of the Brian May model. Add to that Mike’s dead-on Brian May mannerisms and accurate stage attire, and you’d swear you were at the L.A. Forum in 1980!
