The Queen Extravaganza, described by the band's drummer Roger Taylor as "own official tribute band”, is coming to Sheffield this November

The show has been dreamed up by Taylor and guitarist Brian May to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the band’s iconic album, A Night At The Opera.

As well as the album, the show features many of Queen's greatest hits and surprises for fans, as well as rare video footage from Queen’s extensive archives and newly-created imagery.

The band features vocalist Marc Martel, interpreting the work of the legendary Freddie Mercury. Marc's YouTube video of Somebody To Love went viral, generating more than 11 million views.

The line-up includes guitarist Nick Radcliffe, also a touring member of The Who’s rock opera Tommy; bassist Francois-Olivier Doyon, drummer Tyler Warren and keyboardist Darren Reeves. Darren has previously appeared in the Queen musical We Will Rock You and has toured with ABBA tribute band Bjorn Again.

Roger Taylor said: “They actually play the music better than we ever did… a more perfect version, with a more polished sound."

The Queen Extravaganza is at Sheffield City Hall on November 9. Tickets from the City Hall box office or call 0114 278 9789 or go online at www.sheffieldcityhall.co.uk
