Queen and Adam Lambert add final dates to UK Rhapsody tour

Following a phenomenal demand for tickets, Queen + Adam Lambert have expanded the UK leg of their Rhapsody tour with a pair of new shows in Birmingham.

With tickets now available, the June 14 and 15 events at Arena Birmingham are the final dates to be added and the last opportunity to see the band perform in the UK this year and come on top of 10 London O2 and two Manchester Arena sold-out concerts.

The all-new Rhapsody show is presently on a run of 17 stadium shows across South Asia and Australasia, which includes a special appearance at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium on February 16 for the Fire Fight Australia concert for national bushfire relief.

Queen were recently honored as the first British band to be featured on a commemorative coin from The Royal Mint.

The first in the new ‘Music Legends’ collection, the coin commemorates all four members of Queen through the portrayal of each musician’s instrument alongside the group’s iconic logo at the center of the design.

“This is a big ‘Who could have imagined it?’ moment for us,” said guitarist Brian May. “When we began as Queen, even the first rung of the ladder to recognition seemed remote and unreachable. To have our band recognised and our music celebrated in this way is very touching - a real honor.”

“Marvellous, all this fuss over our band,”
added drummer Roger Taylor. “I feel entirely spent.”
