"Wow – ANATO all the way through – What a challenge and what an honour to perform one of the most iconic albums in history under the direction of the guys who created it!"

"I once had a profound emotional experience watching Dweezil Zappa perform the whole of Frank’s classic album ‘Apostrophe’ and hoped one day to have the chance to perform a great album in its entirety. And here it is. “Death on two legs” – What a way to start a set! My brain hurts when I think of how to do “Good Company”, and “The Prophet’s song”? They don’t come much more epic than that!"

"There’ll be a few surprises in the rest of the show. Some amazing early tracks I can’t wait to play. I know that this show will touch the hearts of many true Queen fans, myself included."

"See you on the road, it’s gonna be fun!"

Nick Radcliffe - QUEX (Guitar)

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!!"
