On December 6th, nine songs from Queen – a legendary band whose career has had a lasting and profound influence on modern music across multiple genres – will hit the Rock Band Music Store.
The “Queen Extravaganza Pack 02” pack will feature a wide range of tracks that spans the remarkable career of the quintessential rockers. From “Stone Cold Crazy” off 1974’s Sheer Heart Attack to the band’s 1991 single, “The Show Must Go On” from their 14th studio album, Innuendo, the pack bolsters an already impressive library of playable Queen tracks on the Rock Band platform.
Two of the songs, “Stone Cold Crazy” and “Bicycle Race,” have Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrades available.
One of the biggest rock acts of all time, Queen has released a total of 18 chart-topping albums and 18 #1 singles, while selling more than 300 million albums worldwide. In celebration of the band’s 40th anniversary, Queen’s entire 15-album studio catalog was recently reissued remastering work done by legendary engineer, Bob Ludwig. These must-have pieces of music history are available now on Hollywood Records.
Additionally, finalists for the Queen Extravaganza Tour – a North American talent search to find the best and most gifted musicians for a 2012 Queen tribute tour – have been announced. More information can be found at http://www.queenextravaganza.com.
