Queen and Adam Lambert announce UK and European Rhapsody tour

Queen and Adam Lambert will bring their Rhapsody tour to Europe and the UK next spring.

Inspired by the success of the 2018 biopic, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, the five-week, 16-date series will open May 24 in Bologna, Italy and include a five-night stand at London’s O2 Arena in June.

"We're back and we're hot,” says drummer Roger Taylor.

“I can’t wait to get back to the UK and Europe,” adds Adam Lambert, “we had a blast on our last tour, and I am so excited to bring this new show over there!”

Tickets for the UK dates on the “Rhapsody” tour go on sale to the general public today, September 25; there are no pre-sales.

The announcement of new 2020 shows comes on the heels of a recently-completed North American run and on the eve of one of the biggest North American concerts in Queen's history when they will take to the stage as headliners this Saturday, September 28, for this year's annual Global Citizen Festival on the Great Lawn of New York’s Central Park, playing to an expected audience of 60,000.

The all-star event has been staged each year since 2012 by the Global Poverty Project, which has set the goal of ending extreme poverty by 2030. Queen + Adam Lambert will star alongside artists such as Pharrell Williams, Alicia Keys, One Republic and Carole King.

The all-new Rhapsody show, already hailed as “a marvel of technical advances,” will kick off the new year of 2020 with 17 giant arena and stadium shows across South Korea, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
