The band is made up of talented musicians carefully selected by the iconic band’s guitarist, Brian May and drummer, Roger Taylor. Queen Extravaganza have earned a reputation for “playing the music perfectly” all over the world on their global tours.
The “spectacular” show — which will celebrate 50 years of Queen — spans 90 minutes and features classics like ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ ‘Another One Bites the Dust,’ ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love,’ ‘Under Pressure,’ ‘We Will Rock You’ and many more hits.
In other Queen news, Roger Taylor recently released his latest solo album Outsider. The drummer also kicked off his UK tour on October 2nd, a day after the album’s release however he won’t be making a stop in Ireland.
“For some time now, we’ve all just been trying to get by. Now, it’s back to the basics, myself and some great musical pals getting back out there to play some rock,” Taylor said about the tour.
“Obviously we’ll include some of the Queen classic catalogue, and some of my earlier solo work, but we’ll also be introducing them to some of the new stuff. So we hope folks are going to come on down,” he added.
