Under Pressure 40th anniversary - cover performed by Giordano Petrini and Ambra Mattioli

Updated: Jan 1, 2022

Under Pressure, released in 1981, born out of Queen's collaboration with David Bowie and both have since performed the song frequently in their live shows.

2021 marked the 40th anniversary of this much-loved song by Freddie Mercury and David Bowie fans and we "Aladdin Insane David Bowie Tribute" welcome the idea to play our version of it with friends of "Galileo - Queen Tribute Band". Thanks to the passion for music of our friend and (in this case) Patron and Producer Remo Ottaviani, who took care of the expenses, we met on 11 December in Clive Simpson's "Extrabeat Recording" studios in Rome to record our cover of the classic version of Under Pressure.

The Crew:

-Aladdin Insane David Bowie Tribute band : Ambra Mattioli lead voice and back vocals, Francesco Infarinato piano and synth, Marco Di Nicolantonio drums.

-Galileo - Queen Tribute band : Giordano Petrini lead voice, Andrea Casali bass guitar and back vocals, Marco Giuliani electric guitar. Valentina D'Amelio back vocals and finger snaps.

At the end of the day we thought we had a good result so we decide to publish the video on YouTube and it has been a great surprise to find that the YouTube algorithm identifies our cover as the original remastered in 2011. We took it as a compliment!

The joy and fun of having been together to play and sing erase the effort and commitment of the day and remain with us.

Thanks all guys… including YouTube 😊
