Russ Says: The Queen Extravaganza Is Officially On Tour And Its Awesome

Queen Tour 2012

When you saw The Queen Extravaganza rock the American Idol stage a few weeks back everyone was begging for more. Now that begging can become reality as the official tribute band of Queen is officially on tour! Its so good that you can’t miss it!

I’ll admit it that I have always wanted to see Queen but was never able to see the band when it was led by the iconic Freddy Mercury, but now thanks to The Queen Extravaganza I am getting a taste of what I have been missing!

In a two-set show that runs just over two hours, the band performs nearly 40 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,” “A Kind Of Magic,” “Radio Ga Ga,” “Somebody To Love” and “Killer Queen.” The show also highlights some of the band’s finest heavy-duty rock anthems which have long been at the core of their live performances, such as “I’m In Love With My Car,” “Tie Your Mother Down,” “Seven Seas Of Rye,” and “In The Lap Of The Gods.”

In addition, the excitement on stage is enhanced with the inclusion of never-before-seen video footage, and a heavyweight production team headed by stage designer Mark Fisher, who has been responsible for some of the most memorable rock concerts ever staged, including The Wall for Pink Floyd and every Rolling Stones show since 1989.

It is a complete rock spectacle and a wonderful show with performers who are loving what they are doing, if by the end of this tour this doesn’t become a staple in Las Vegas I would be completely shocked!

So HollywoodLifers, are you excited for the show to come to your town? Sound off below!
