The crowd refused to sit down for the 11 first songs its seems.

I am trying to find setlists and reviews. But no luck yet. There should be some online newspapers in Quebec covering this?

It's sold out last night at the Grand Theatre de Quebec that the tribute band Queen Extravaganza starting up its North American tour.

The show, which included more than 35 songs, traveled the band's repertoire in his greatest hits. Whether it's quieter songs such as Love of My Life and You Take My Breath Away or more rock songs like Stone Cold Crazy , all were delighted.

The group exuded an energy and an infectious enthusiasm that has been passed in a natural way to the crowd. Lighting simple, but how well made is added to the show. All members of the group had its place, and guitarists Brian Gresh and Tristan Avakian were conspicuous with their awesome guitar solos and some acrobatics.

Several standing ovations were offered to the group by the public, whether for Another One Bites The Dust and Crazy Little Thing Called Love and many others. On I'm In Love With My Car , is the drummer Tyler Warren who is responsible for the interpretation vocals, and drums of course.

It is obvious that the group offered the biggest hits such as Bohemian Rhapsody , which had never been done by the Queen on show in a complete, We Will Rock You, We Are The Champions as well as Fat Bottomed Girls and The Show Must Go On rappelling.

The Queen Extravaganza is a show of greatest hits ... without forgetting. In addition to providing any performance, group members have generously offered the public a quick session of signing autographs and taking pictures directly into the corridors of the Grand Theatre. A rumor that the Queen drummer Roger Taylor, was in Quebec for the first tour as a producer.

Of the nine artists in the group include the presence of three Quebec, is Francois-Olivier Doyon (bass) of Quebec, Marc Martel (vocals) of Montreal and Yvan Pedneault (vocals) Sept-Iles.

The Queen Extravaganza will be performing tonight in Montreal and Toronto May

I don't think it is. It's another review.

Under Pressure was quite good, actually. Liked Jeff's Bowie and the "Why" high note. Good execution.

So, what was the setlist? Did they actually perform anything which was not played by QPR and/or which isn't on the Greatest Hits albums?

Better than I expected from those youtube videos.

They seem to be re-creating the album versions of songs pretty faithfully.

I'm never a fan of bands performing in front of a big TV screen but at least it's not camera shots of themselves (looking at you Van Halen).

Beautyful.
1st: I want the live DVD, when can we get it, Rog?
2nd: I'd love to attend, do a world tour whenever you want.
It's interesting that the first video that made it to YTube was DSMN, my favourite song. I'm totally sold. :)
