Press Release: Queen Extravaganza Announce New UK Tour - On Sale Now!

May 9, 2014 - 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. Tickets are now ON SALE.

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 Roger 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.

Press Release: Queen Extravaganza Announce New UK Tour - On Sale Now!

I wish Queen & Adam would play in the UK this year - I watched Adam in American Idol (was living in Nashville at the time) and thought he was brilliant. I would love to see him perform with my favourite rock band; it would be amazing. Just feeling emotional after watching him perform Who Wants to Live Forever and thinking about Freddie too. Freddie is still irreplaceable and I thought no-one would be able to do his songs justice vocally but Adam Lambert is doing a sterling job of keeping the songs alive without trying to mimic Freddie.

No Manchester, Liverpool etc, how is anyone in the North West supposed to see this?
Please add a couple of dates in the NW, im sure tickets would fly out of the door.

Sherrie Miller

OK! I get it. No Queen members. I feel better. Is this the same band members who have been touring for a while? For the record, I really hope Brian and Roger don't plan on touring without Adam. The 3 of you are the new 3 Musketeers! So very great together!!!

Sherrie Miller

OH NO! No Adam Lambert!!!! It feels like he's one of you!! You know how they said and say Freddie couldn't be replaced. Well, modern day, Adam can't be replaced.
While it's great to see you touring, sorry, no way it could be the same without Adam!!!!!!!!!!!!!
