Auditions begin September 19th at www.queenextravaganza.com and the tour, booked by powerhouse agency CAA, launches in 2012.

My Thoughts on the Queen Extravaganza

Personally I don’t see how they can secure the most talented band to perform Queen’s music by limiting the search to North America, as more talented persons may live out side this very limited catchment area. I myself will submit a Queen Extravaganza entry on Keyboards. I am a Queen Keyboard Player in Ireland, I play nearly all Queens hits on Keyboards … who knows they might change their minds on who can enter.
