Francois-Olivier Doyon on playing A Night At The Opera in full on the UK Tour this October and November.

"Without a doubt one of Queen’s masterpieces, if not their most iconic album. And rightfully so. There’s so much brilliance, so many great moments, so much variety within a single band’s album. In fact, it’s really hard for me to imagine another band, especially from that era in rock’s history, who could have pulled it off the way they did."

"Of course, Freddie’s mesmerizing genius shines throughout the whole record, whether as songwriter or as performer. Love Of My Life remains one of my personal favorite Queen songs. And as if Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon and Bohemian Rhapsody weren’t already challenging enough, the vocal arrangements in the remainder of NATO are gonna be quite a task to pull off in a live context… "

"But the three other guys in the band also had a big role to play in the success of NATO, including John who kind of revealed himself for one of the first time as a gifted composer. You’re My Best Friend has been, during previous tours, a highly anticipated moment for me from one night to another. It is one of the busiest bass lines in their entire repertoire and I’ll be once again looking very much forward to performing it this time around. And then there’s ’39, Brian’s “hippy-sounding” acoustic moment, where John brought in the “big lady” to the recording studio. This got me wondering: am I gonna be playing upright bass during the NATO tour?..."

"I expect this next tour to be a really fun one!!"

Francois-Olivier Doyon - QUEX (Bass)

Performing "A Night At The Opera" by Marc Martel

Marc Martel on performing A Night At The Opera in full on the UK Tour this October and November.

"One of my favorite things about being in the QE, is - ironically enough - the opportunity to try new things, and push myself in ways I've never dreamt of."

"I've always wondered what it would be like to perform an entire album front to back. Now, I get to do just that! And I like to think that Roger and Brian sort of live vicariously through us by having us try some things that Queen never attempted - performing BoRhap in its entirety, for example. Or maybe we're lab rats in their grand, diabolical experiment. Only time will tell!"

"A Night At The Opera contains roughly one twentieth of Queen's recorded works, but in those dozen songs, the band's sound was defined like no other album they recorded. It is arguably their most important work, and undoubtedly my favorite Queen record. I can't wait to take on songs I love which we've never done before, like "Death On Two Legs" and "Seaside Rendez-Vous." Should be a blast!"

JUST ANNOUNCED: FOR THE FIRST TIME IN AUSTRALIA - THE QUEEN EXTRAVAGANZA!
April 26th 2015

News 20150426215248

 

The Roger Taylor and Brian May produced Queen Extravaganza will rock Australia this October with shows on the Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. 

The Queen Extravaganza is a spectacular touring concert show designed to take the glorious music and live experience of legendary rock band Queen and bring it to generations of fans.

Two of Queen’s original band mates and songwriters— iconic drummer Roger Taylor and legendary guitarist Brian May—are the masterminds behind The Queen Extravaganza. “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", says Taylor. “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.” Taylor personally has taken on the role of producer with long time Queen Keyboardist Spike Edney as global music director. Together Taylor and Edney have created the ultimate Queen concert experience in an electrifying road show, which celebrates the band’s music and legacy as performed by a new generation of musical talent.

The band is: vocalist Marc Martel; guitarist Nick Radcliffe; drummer Tyler Warren; and bassist Francois-Oliver Doyon. "This band is now so frighteningly good, I would hate to have to follow them on stage," explains Taylor. 

The 90-minute show features more than 20 Queen classics drawn from the band’s biggest hits: “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Another One Bites the Dust,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “Under Pressure,” “We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions,” “A Kind of Magic,” “Radio Ga Ga,” “Somebody to Love,” and “Killer Queen” as well as other fan favourites. The production will be enhanced visually with rare video footage from Queen’s extensive archives and also newly created imagery.
