THE QUEEN EXTRAVAGANZA ANNOUNCES
UK TOUR FOR SEPTEMBER
THE OFFICIAL QUEEN TRIBUTE SHOW PRODUCED BY QUEEN DRUMMER
ROGER TAYLOR CELEBRATES THE BAND’S GLORIOUS MUSIC & LIVE EXPERIENCE
Following the resounding success of the recent North American and European tours, The Queen Extravaganza will return to the UK for select performance dates in September 2014.
The Queen Extravaganza is a spectacular touring concert show designed to take the glorious music and live experience of legendary rock band Queen and bring it to generations of fans as performed by new musical talent. Two of Queen’s original band mates and songwriters – iconic drummer Roger Taylor and legendary guitarist Brian May- are the masterminds behind The Queen Extravaganza.
Taylor hand-picked the band members from almost 1,000 entries through a unique online talent search with video submissions generating more than 10 million views around the globe. The late Mark Fisher created the staging and production elements, which are enhanced by rare footage from Queen’s extensive archives and newly created imagery.
The band made their debut performing on the popular TV show American Idol in 2012.
“The Queen Extravaganza is a new show specially designed to enable new fans, together with fans of old, to celebrate the music of Queen in a heart-stopping event,” says Taylor. “It’s very spectacular, it’s very visual, there are going to be some shocks and some tremendous surprises. It will be a rock celebration in the Royal tradition.”
The 90-minute show features more than 20 Queen classics drawn from the band’s biggest hits: “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Another One Bites the Dust,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “Under Pressure,” “We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions,” “A Kind of Magic,” “Radio Ga Ga,” “Somebody to Love,” and “Killer Queen” as well as other fan favorites.
The Queen Extravaganza band is: vocalist Marc Martel; guitarist Nick Radcliffe; bassist Francois-Olivier Doyon; drummer Tyler Warren; and keyboardist and musical director Brandon Ethridge.
