The Hong Kong Rugby Football Union today unveiled the entertainment line-up for this year’s Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens.

Headlining this year’s musical action is the official Queen tribute show: The Queen Extravaganza founded by two of Queen’s original band mates and songwriters, drummer Roger Taylor and legendary guitarist Brian May.

Since forming through an online talent contest, The Queen Extravaganza has toured North America and the United Kingdom to huge acclaim.

“This band is now so frighteningly good, I would hate to have to follow them on stage,” says Taylor.

The Queen Extravaganza will perform on Saturday afternoon following the pipes and drums of the Hong Kong Police, Auxiliary Police, and Scout Pipe Bands.

Hong Kong hip-hop group 24Herbs, and the city’s premier jazz guitarist Eugene Pao, will also perform.
