Queen and Adam Lambert have announced their European tour dates for next year
Written by Alex Alicia
After their astounding North American success, the prominent rock legends, Queen, will take to the UK stage once again to perform their European leg of The Rhapsody Tour, fronted by eccentric American Idol runner up and singing star, Adam Lambert. Sources say they’ll be kicking off their killer first performances over five nights at the famous London O2. Starting on Tuesday 2 June and following on with another four dates including the 3rd, 5th, 6th and 9th June.
Not to worry for the Northern Queen fans though as the band will then head north of the country to play another two stand out shows at Manchester Arena on Thursday 11 June and Friday 12 June 2020.
The Rhapsody Tour took off April this year and was a continuation of the success of 2019 film biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, starring, Rami Malek, as the much loved and well respected, Freddie Mercury. Each and every date from the US leg was a sold out phenomenon with Queen and Adam Lambert excitedly hitting a total of 27 cities in the States from Vancouver to Toronto, to New-York and so many more in between. Before lastly closing out and rounding up all of their glorious shows at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Lambert hash-tagged the continued tour on Instagram last month, teasing the British and European fans with a promotional video that barely gave anything away but still managed to get the undivided attention of over 61,000 fans on Lambert’s social media platform alone. Adam said, “UK and Europe, here we come! #TheRhapsodyTour is coming your way in 2020 – tickets on sale now!”

The tour is said to feature classic hits such as ‘Radio GaGa’, ‘Who Wants to Live Forever’, ‘We Will Rock You’ and of course the enthralling title feature tune ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. A full set list can be found online via setlist.fm.com. Filled with an action packed set and over two hours of legendary music, Billboard online reviewer, Mick Stingley, said “They played for 135 minutes. Yet there was never a dull moment.” Mr Stingley was present at Queen’s sold out show on August 6th in Madison Square Garden, New-York City.
This is certainly one tour you don’t want to miss!
