The brain child of Brian May and Roger Taylor, Queen Extravaganza is more than a Queen tribute band.

 

"What an amazing storehouse of talent we have unlocked. The standard is mind-blowingly high. It has really been a thrill to discover them" says Roger Taylor of Queen. He is referring to the intensive 12 week online auditions that were held to be a part of this touring band. These musicians, along with never before seen Queen footage will be a must see for Queen fans. "The Queen Extravaganza will not be like a traditional tribute show. It is a brand new show specially designed to enable these new fans, together with fans of old to celebrate the music of Queen in a heart stopping event."

This show comes to the Fox Theater in Detroit on Thursday, May 31. Tickets are on sale now.
