The Queen Extravaganza In Europe

The Queen Extravaganza plays the continent beginning in May.  Produced by Queen drummer Roger Taylor, the tour launches in Belgium and includes stops in Germany, Austria, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland.

Masterminded by Taylor and Queen guitarist Brian May, Taylor picked the members of the tribute via an online completion.

 “The Queen Extravaganza is a brand new show specially designed to enable new fans, together with fans of old, to celebrate the music of Queen in a heart-stopping event,” Taylor said in a posting on the tour’s website.  “It’s very spectacular, it’s very visual, there are going to be some shocks and some tremendous surprises.  It will be a rock celebration in the Royal tradition.”
