THE QUEEN EXTRAVAGANZA
OFFICIAL QUEEN TRIBUTE SHOW COMES TO THE UK
**Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 5th July**
Following the resounding success of their North American tour, The Queen Extravaganza announces its first ever UK tour will hit British shores in October (full tour dates below). The official Queen tribute show, put together by Roger Taylor and Brian May, 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. Tickets for the UK tour go on sale on Friday 5th July.
Taylor himself hand picked the band members (vocalists Marc Martel and Jennifer Espinoza; guitarist Brian Gresh; drummer Tyler Warren; bassist Francois-Olivier Doyon; and keyboardist and musical director Brandon Ethridge) from thousands of auditionees during a unique online talent search with video submissions generating more than 10 million views from around the globe.
Taylor says: “The Queen Extravaganza is a brand new show specially designed to enable new fans, together with fans of old, to celebrate the music of Queen in a heart-stopping event. It’s very spectacular, and I think people will be truly shocked and amazed at the level of vocal and instrumental performance from these brilliant musicians! When Marc Martel sings it sounds as if Freddie has entered the room.”
The 90-minute show, which kicks off in Birmingham on 27th October and ends at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 6th November, features Queen’s classic hits and some surprises for the true fans.
Capturing the fabled design and excitement of Queen’s legendary live performances, the late great Mark Fisher created the staging and production elements for The Queen Extravaganza. The production will be enhanced with rare video footage from Queen’s extensive archives and newly-created imagery.
Giving fans the unique opportunity to experience the thrill of Queen’s live show with outstanding musicianship, stunning visuals and a spine tingling vocal performance from the awesome talent of Marc Martel, this debut UK tour from The Queen Extravaganza is set to deliver one of the best musical experiences of the year.
