VIDEO: The Queen Extravaganza opens tour in Quebec City

Queen’s official tribute band – The Queen Extravaganza – launched their North American tour Saturday in Quebec City.

“The Queen Extravaganza” band was selected after judges spent 11 weeks reviewing online auditions and weighing votes from Queen fans around the world to confirm the lineup.

The band consists of singers Jennifer Espinoza (San Antonio, TX) and Marc Martel (Montreal, QC / Nashville,TN), guitarists Tristan Avakian (Toronto, ON) and Brian Gresh (Tulsa, OK), drummer Tyler Warren (Camden, TN) and bassist Francois-Olivier Doyon (Quebec City, QC).

“Audience refuse to sit down for the first 11 songs...i'm a nervous wreck, band are amazing!” tweeted Queen’s Roger Taylor, who is producer and musical director for the event.
