The Queen Extravaganza

The Queen Extravaganza

Launching this summer, the Queen Extravaganza is a spectacular touring concert show designed to take the glorious music and the live experience of legends of rock Queen to generations of fans in cities coast-to-coast across the United States and Canada. 

Taking on the role of producer and music director, Queen’s iconic drummer Roger Taylor has created an ultimate Queen concert experience in an electrifying road show that celebrates the band’s music and legacy performed by some of the best new music talent working today. The show includes nearly 40 true Queen classics drawn from a list of the band’s biggest all-time chart hits – "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Another One Bites the Dust," "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," "Under Pressure," "We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions," "Somebody to Love," "Killer Queen" – and highlights some of the band’s finest heavy-duty rock based anthems which have long been at the core of their live performances. Audiences can also expect a healthy dose of early period Queen with songs such as "I’m In Love With My Car," "Tie Your Mother Down," "Seven Seas of Rye" and "In the Lap Of The Gods."

To guarantee the touring show matches the fabled design and excitement of Queen at its live best, Taylor has enlisted a heavyweight production team headed by stage designer Mark Fisher. Fisher has been responsible for some of the most memorable rock concerts ever staged, including The Wall for Pink Floyd, every Rolling Stones show since 1989 and, working with lighting designer Willie Williams, every U2 concert.

The Queen Extravaganza touring band – four vocalists and five musicians (two guitars, bass, drums and keyboards) – were hired after an intensive, six-week, online audition search. The buzz surrounding the public auditions sparked worldwide interest with video submissions generating more than 6.4 million views.
