The Queen Extravaganza is specially designed to enable new fans, together with fans of old, to celebrate the music of Queen and has already played phenomenally successful dates across the world. “It’s our own official tribute band”, says Roger Taylor.

“These guys are incredible gifted musicians in their own right and certainly aren’t just dressing up in costumes and pretending to be Queen. They actually play the music better than we ever did. Or, maybe ‘better’ isn’t the right word. But they play a more perfect version, with a more polished sound, whereas we always used to go off and play around with the music when we were in concert.”
