Queen + Adam Lambert add extra summer 2020 UK shows

They will now perform ten shows across their London residency.

Queen + Adam Lambert have confirmed that they’ll be bringing their hugely anticipated Rhapsody concert experience to the UK next summer.

Including the newly announced dates, the legendary band take to The O2, London for ten nights between 2 – 21 June 2020, before heading north for two dates at Manchester Arena on 11 and 12 June 2020.

Tickets for the newly announced dates on 8, 17, 18, 20 and 21 June 2020 will be available from 10:00 on Wednesday 11 December 2019, alongside curated hotel packages.

The UK leg of the Rhapsody tour will feature original Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor team up with longtime frontman Adam Lambert, who first started performing with the band in June 2012.

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

The band’s line up for the tour will be completed by keyboard player Spike Edney, bass player Neil Fairclough and percussionist Tyler Warren.

Queen + Adam Lambert recently wrapped up the US leg of the Rhapsody tour, which included two sell out shows at New York’s world-famous Madison Square Garden. The tour received rave reviews, in particular for its innovative and spectacular stage production, which adds a new dimension into the band’s epic back catalogue.

Brian May enthuses: “This is a fearsome new production taking the Queen legacy to a new place. I’m well proud.”

The announcement comes as the band are attracting a whole new generation of fans, finding Queen’s music through the recent Box Office smash Bohemian Rhapsody. The highest-grossing biopic of all time, Bohemian Rhapsody also saw lead actor Rami Malek take home the Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of the late Freddie Mercury.

Queen are truly one of the greatest British rock exports of all time, selling an estimated 200 million albums globally. Some of their classic hits include Don’t Stop Me Now, Killer Queen, Somebody To Love, We Will Rock You, I Want To Break Free, We Are The Champions and Bohemian Rhapsody. The official video for the latter has just surpassed 1 billion views on YouTube.

The legendary band will once again be joined by frontman Adam Lambert, as they bring their Rhapsody tour to the UK next summer.
