Queen Extravaganza, the official Queen tribute band produced by Roger Taylor and Brian May, has postponed its upcoming tour - including a Blackpool date - due to coronavirus.

The band had been due to perform at the Opera House, Winter Gardens, Blackpool, on January 19 this year - but organisers fear the current Covid-19 situation will create too many

logistical problems.

The tour across the UK and Europe was due to run from January 9 until February 21, 2022.

"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 for 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 for 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."
