Press Release: The Queen Extravaganza Coming to The UK!

THE QUEEN EXTRAVAGANZA - OFFICIAL QUEEN TRIBUTE SHOW COMES TO THE UK 

 
**Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 5th July via www.ticketweb.co.uk** 
 
Following the resounding success of their North American tour, The Queen Extravaganza announces that 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 via www.ticketweb.co.uk. - all tickets are £19.50 plus booking fees.
 
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.

Nothin for Manchester ? That does seem a bit strange

Klytus Iembord

I don't recall a female vocalist being in Queen.
Does she sing Barcelona as part of the show? Does she do the Joan Armatrading bit from Don't Lose Your Head?

THE ROCK TZAR

Saw this show in Dallas TX last year..was a lot of fun ( and I saw the ORIGINAL QUEEN 30 times between 78 - 86 ).Well worth the admission price just for LAZING ON A SUNDAY AFTERNOON / I'M IN LOVE WITH MY CAR.Go with an open mind.OUTSTANDING !!

Geir

Come to Norway....please.

btw, attended my third queen gig last year at Hammersmith Apollo (July 11th ). It was amazing. The two prior was in Norway ´82 and Sweden ´86. Best band in the world...ever.

All o2 venues ?
Does the promoter have a connection with o2 ?

As Roger Taylor once said about Mustapha..."Strange one that"

No Thanks

Not wanted here: Queen Extravaganza go home!

We'll take a solo acoustic tour from Brian and Roger though.

I saw this in Tampa, FL, USA last summer. It was great! The best part is BoRhap being performed totally live from its original beginning to the end! Wonderful!!!! Nothing could ever be a good as the real Queen, but this comes close. Please take it around the world for all to see and bring it back to Florida while you're at it!! I'd love to see it again and would highly recommend this show to all Queen fans and average real music lovers, too. See this show!!
