The Queen Extravaganza
Sept. 3, 2013
Following the resounding success of the North American tour in 2012 and early 2013, The Queen Extravaganza will continue the tour in August and September in Canada and the Northeastern U.S., which will include a stop at Ottawa’s Canadian Tire Centre on Tuesday, Sept. 3.
The Queen Extravaganza is a spectacular touring concert designed to take the glorious music and live experience of legendary rock band Queen and bring it to generations of fans. 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.
’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,” said 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.”
Taylor has personally taken on the role of producer with long time Queen keyboardist Spike Edney as global music director. Together Taylor and Edney have created the ultimate Queen concert experience in an electrifying road show, which celebrates the band’s music and legacy as performed by a new generation of musical talent.
The Queen Extravaganza band includes musicians selected by Taylor in a unique online talent search that culminated with the group’s performance on American Idol last year. The band includes: vocalists Marc Martel and Jennifer Espinoza; guitarist Brian Gresh; drummer Tyler Warren; bassist Francois-Olivier Doyon; and keyboardist and musical director Brandon Ethridge. ’This band is now so frighteningly good, I would hate to have to follow them on stage,” explains Taylor.
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. The production will be enhanced visually with rare video footage from Queen’s extensive archives and also newly-created imagery.
