Queen's 'official' tribute band have had to postpone their upcoming tour due to the 'challenges' posed by Covid. 

The Queen Extravaganza, which is produced by Roger Taylor and Brian May, made the announcement today. 

The group were scheduled to play numerous dates across the UK and Europe in 2022, including a Glasgow performance at the SEC Armadillo on February 15.

They are hoping to reschedule dates for roughly the same period in 2023.

A spokesperson said: "As a result of the current challenges presented by Covid-19, it is with sadness that we have had to make the decision to postpone the upcoming Queen Extravaganza tour. 

"Whilst we were more than ready to get the show back on the road, the logistics this production faces within the current environment prevent us from being able to tour with the confidence needed to deliver over 50 shows across the UK and Europe at this time. 

"The show must go on, and we are working with venues and partners now to reschedule the dates into the same period in 2023. 

"We ask audiences to bear with us whilst we get this work done so that we can offer an exchange into an alternative date. Of course if that is not suitable customers will be entitled to a refund.

"Thank you for your support and understanding during these challenging times."

Roger Taylor has said of the band: “It's our own official tribute band. These guys are incredible gifted musicians in their own right and certainly aren’t just dressing up in costumes and pretending to be Queen.

"They actually play the music better than we ever did."
