If you sit in the crowd, close your eyes and listen to Marc Martel bellow out the words to Bohemian Rhapsody you’ll be forgiven for thinking time travelling a reality…
The official (yes, this is as official as it comes; original band members Roger Taylor and Brian May are the masterminds behind it) Queen tribute show promises to rock your socks off.
Having been brought together after a unique online talent search, the members of The Queen Extravaganza have perfected the art of performing the original material and, in the words of Taylor himself, have become ‘frighteningly good’.
Lovers of Queen’s music will thus be delighted to hear that following the resounding success of their recent North American tour, The Queen Extravaganza will perform a 90-minute set at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire.
With more than twenty classic Queen hits on the cards, all that’s left to say is: Long live Queen!
