Queen Extravaganza, the ‘official’ tribute band created by Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor, return to the UK for a further series of shows during the autumn of 2018.
Pre-sale links for ticket purchase will be made available to the QueenOnline and Queen Fan Club communities from 9am on Wednesday 13 December. Tickets go on General Sale on Friday 15 December at 9am.
These dates follow the band’s 2015 and 2016 sold out UK tours which celebrated the 40th anniversary of Queen’s iconic album, A Night At The Opera. The tour culminated with a headlining show at the legendary Hammersmith Apollo in London, a venue once played by Queen themselves in the 1970s.
The Queen Extravaganza – described by Roger Taylor himself as “a rock celebration in the Royal tradition” and designed to enable new fans together with fans of old to celebrate the music of Queen – will play sixteen shows across England and Scotland beginning the end of October 2018 in Edinburgh with the tour winding up in London on 22 November.
The 2018 shows will be billed as the ‘Queen’s Greatest Hits Tour’ with the promise to deliver all the hits any Queen fan could want to hear – ‘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,’ and ‘Killer Queen’ – just a few to mention – presented 100% live by some of today’s finest musicians hand-picked by Roger Taylor and Brian May.
Announcing the dates, Brian May said: “Queen aficionados!!! This may be your only chance to see ALL of Queen’s greatest hits performed immaculately – Live!!”
“These guys are incredibly talented, with their scintillatingly perfect recreation of our songs,” Roger Taylor adds.
Now scheduled for their sixth visit to the UK, the Queen Extravaganza has already played over 160 dates across the world and made appearances on TV shows such as American Idol where the performance was seen by over 20 million people.
