Queen + Adam Lambert are coming back to London

They'll be playing a show at London's O2 on Monday 2 July 2018.

Queen + Adam Lambert will be headlining a show at London’s O2 on Monday 2 July 2018.

The rock legends, with Adam Lambert taken on Freddie Mercury’s vocal duties, last toured the UK in November and December last year, including two shows in England’s capital.

Fans will now get another chance to catch Queen live, as they return for the spectacular show.

“The almost unanimous reaction to our last round of dates in Europe was this is absolutely the best production we’ve ever mounted,” guitarist Brian May says of the previous dates. “There has been a great demand for us to go back and cover the cities we missed!”.

The London show forms part of a European tour which also sees the band take to Germany and Italy.

“So, while we’re still physically able to perform at those high energy levels on this massive scale, we thought… ‘YES !! One more around the block!’ It’s live, it’s dangerous, and it takes every ounce of fitness we can muster. But it’s still fun,” May adds.

Fans can expect performances of classic tracks such as Bohemian Rhapsody and Somebody To Love, as well as others from the band’s extensive back-catalogue.

Queen, originally fronted by Freddie Mercury until his untimely death in 1991, have been touring with Adam Lambert at the helm since 2011. Lambert rose to fame in the eighth series of American Idol, having since gone on to have solo success and stage credits, as well as touring with the rock icons.
