Following a well-received coast-to-coast trek earlier this year, the Queen Extravaganza has scheduled a 2013 North American run, which includes a monthlong Quebec City residency.

The Queen concert experience created by original drummer Roger Taylor and guitarist Brian May will return to the North American tour trail with a Jan. 11 performance in Tarrytown, NY. The 14-city trek currently focuses on the East Coast and parts of Canada through a Feb. 3 performance in Halifax, Nova Scotia, though more dates will be announced soon, according to a press release. Several dates are slated in at Quebec City's Le Capitole de Quebec, including a six-night stint in January and more than a dozen dates scattered throughout August.

Ticketing information is available at the outfit's website.

The impending road trip will feature singers Marc Martel and Jennifer Espinoza, bassist Francois Olivier Doyon, guitarist Brian Gresh, drummer Tyler Warren and keyboardist/musical director Brandon Ethridge. Each stop will enjoy a 90-minute performance with 22 Queen classics, such as "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Another One Bites The Dust," Under Pressure" and "We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions," among others.

"The Queen Extravaganza is not a traditional tribute show," Taylor said in a press release. "It is a brand new show specially designed to enable these new fans, together with fans of old, to celebrate the music of Queen in a heart-stopping event."
