The "Queen Extravaganza" tour, produced by Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor, has
announced its initial 2013 dates. The tour - which does not feature the band - kicks off on January 11th in
Taylor, who played a crucial role in picking the creative and production team along with the performers, said in the tour's press release, "We did the first 10 years of our career
with just the four of us, no additions, you know the technology wasn't there. We were relying on stripped down adrenalized versions of our songs and our own personalities. But with this band, we continue to push all the musical boundaries with technology that was not available to the four of us originally. This band is a powerhouse of talent. To hear our songs performed by them gives fans a chance to hear them (our songs) now as they could have done then and
perhaps technically, even better!!"
The 90-minute show features the Queen Extravaganza band performs 22 Queen songs including classics and deep album cuts.
