QUEEN: Here They Go Again
Queen have announced the 2013 leg of their official tribute tour, the Queen Extravaganza. The show includes singers and musicians chosen in a contest put together by drummer Roger Taylor, including singer Marc Martel who bears a striking resemblance to the late Freddie Mercury.
The tour starts January 11th in Tarrytown, New York. Taylor says, "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 [our songs] now as they could have done then and perhaps technically even better."
The tour is currently scheduled through February 3rd in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, including five nights in Quebec City. More dates will be announced soon.
