THE official Queen tribute show will be performed at the Salisbury City Hall on September 20.

The Queen Extravaganza will play best-selling hits including Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites the Dust, Under Pressure, We Will Rock You and Radio Ga Ga.

The band includes musicians selected by Taylor in an online talent search that culminated with the group’s performance on American Idol in 2012.

Long-time Queen Keyboardist Spike Edney has helped Taylor produce the show. The production will be enhanced by rare video footage from Queen’s extensive archives.

Taylor said: “The Queen Extravaganza is a brand new show specially designed to enable new fans, together with fans of old, to celebrate the music of Queen in a heart-stopping event.

“It’s very spectacular, it’s very visual, there are going to be some shocks and some tremendous surprises. It will be a rock celebration in the royal tradition.

“This band is now so frighteningly good, I would hate to have to follow them on stage.”

Tickets for the event are on sale at ticketweb.co.uk.
