Roger Taylor, the original drummer for the band Queen, decided it was time that he put together the ultimate Queen tribute band. The purpose was to allow fans around the world to experience the music of Queen live. He and the band’s guitarist Brian May held auditions for all the parts of the band. According to Taylor, some of the best young musical talent came out to audition. He and May selected the four best vocalists and the five best musicians (two guitarists, bass, drummer, and keyboardist).
The show is just over two hours long and has one half hour intermission. Forty Queen songs will be performed during the show. Including huge hits like “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Another One Bites the Dust”, “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”, and “Under Pressure”. They will also be playing the band’s lesser known, but live favourites. Roger Tayler himself is the producer and music director of the tour.
If you don’t have tickets I regret to inform you that the show is sold out.
