Following the recent success of the recent UK and North American tours, the Queen Extravaganza will perform in certain European cities starting in May 2014.
The Queen Extravaganza is designed to take Queen’s glorious music and live stage experience to a brand new generation of fans … as well the the die hard Queen fan.
The Queen Extravaganza band includes musicians selected via a unique online talent search (but which you couldn’t enter if you were living in the UK … much to my personal annoyance). Anyway, the band is made up of vocalist Marc Martel who has an amazing voice and can do a “Freddie”; guitarist Nick Radcliffe; drummer Tyler Warren; bassist Francois-Olivier Doyon; and keyboardist Brandon Ethridge (who if he wants to resign, I will take his place at a drop of a hat!).

April 25th : Update – Tickets for the two Queen + Adam Lambert concerts at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo on July 11th & 12th have both SOLD OUT. Brian May has hinted at the possibility of a third date being added to the bill.
Despite the sudden cancellation of the Sonisphere Concert and with Queen set to headline with singer Adam Lambert at Knebworth, Queen have announced they are to go ahead with not just one but two Queen UK concert appearances this summer.
Queen and Lambert will perform at 2 concerts at London’s HMV Hammersmith Apollo over two nights, July 11/12 2012. Queen also promised to endeavour to give priority booking to all fans who had held tickets for their Knebworth Sonisphere concert.
Queens Hammersmith Tickets will go on sale this week. Tickets for Queens HMV Hammersmith Appollo concerts will be sold first to Queen fan club members, Queen online subscribers and Sonisphere Knebworth ticket holders and then on general sale.
A bit of Queen Hammersmith History
HMV Hammersmith Appollo was originally known as the Hammersmith Odeon. The Hammersmith Odeon venue was the scene of 4 sold out Queen concerts in late November/early December 1975 (at the height of the Bohemian Rhapsody release). Hammersmith Odeon was also the venue for a special Christmas Eve show and again in December 1979 when they played the opening night of a series of UNICEF concerts for the people of Kampuchea.
Amongst Queen fans, the Hammersmith Odeon shows continue to be regarded as some of Queen’s most exceptional concerts.
