Launching summer 2012, The Queen Extravaganza is a spectacular touring concert show designed to take the glorious music and the live experience of legends of rock Queen to generations of fans in cities coast-to-coast.
Behind the show is Queen’s iconic drummer Roger Taylor, who’s idea it was to the create the ultimate Queen concert experience in an electrifying road show that celebrates the band’s music and legacy performed by some of the best new music talent working today.
Taylor’s Queen Extravaganza touring band - four vocalists and five musicians (two guitars, bass, drums and keyboards) - were hired after an intensive six week online audition search. The buzz surrounding the public auditions sparked worldwide interest with video submissions generating more than 6.4 million views.
In a show which will run just over two hours of playing time, The QE band will perform close on 40 true Queen classics drawn from a list of the band’s biggest all-time chart 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,” ”Killer Queen” - as well as highlighting some of the band’s finest heavy-duty rock based anthems which have long been at the core of their live performances, so audiences can also expect a healthy dose of early period Queen with songs such as ”I’m In Love With My Car,” ”Tie Your Mother Down,” ”Seven Seas of Rye,” ”In the Lap Of The Gods,” among them. Production values will be boosted with the inclusion of never-before-seen video footage.
Taylor sums up: “The Queen Extravaganza will not be like a traditional tribute show. It is a brand new show specially designed to enable these new fans, together with fans of old, to celebrate the music of Queen in a heart-stopping event. It’s going to be very spectacular, it’s going to be very visual, there are going to be some shocks and some tremendous surprises. It will be a rock celebration in the Royal tradition."
