Back From The Road



Back From The Road

It’s finally here. Nick’s 1st blog. I had to google ‘blog‘ to make sure that’s still what it’s called.

Anyway, firstly a big thanks and welcome to all our new members. We also hope that everyone is enjoying the new site!

So, I’ve just returned from another 2 weeks on the road with the Queen Extravaganza #QuEx @QueenExtrava. It’s the official Queen tribute (no wigs!) and we are actually put together and managed by Queen’s drummer Roger Taylor. I had to do a video audition but I’m proud of having been chosen by Brian May, 9 years ago for the show “We Will Rock You”, and now independently by Roger Taylor for QuEx. It seems I can’t escape Queen!

Some musicians will deny that you get to actually see the countries they visit but occasionally you get to have a good look around. Both Bobby and I have been lucky enough to see a great many cities, but this latest tour I got to visit some cool new places. 2 days in Monte Carlo, after a slightly rusty opening show in Luxembourg (no time for still rocked though!), then on to Amsterdam, Ostend in Belgium and finally to Iceland where we sold out 2 nights at the 1500 seater Harpa venue. What a fascinating country and brilliant audiences. A big thank you for the amazing hospitality we received there (if anyone’s reading this!).

Next up is a 3-week tour of Australia in October followed by a brand new show for the UK tour in November. Click here to watch Roger Taylor’s announcement.

It would be great to see you on the road if you can make it to any of the shows. The “A night at the Opera” tour should be a great experience.

In the mean time, Bobby and I are getting together to plan our next batch of lessons. If you have any good ideas then please let us know.

All the best
