We are the champions, my friend!
The soaring success of Bohemian Rhapsody – the Freddie Mercury/Queen movie that is set to become the biggest grossing music biopic of all time – has proven that the public’s love for Queen remains as strong as ever.
Longtime fans and recent converts will be thrilled to discover then, that Queen – original band members Brian May and Roger Taylor, teaming up once more with longtime frontman Adam Lambert on lead vocals – will return to North America next year. Produced by Live Nation, the epic 23-date arena and stadiumRhapsody tour is set to run from mid-July through late August with an all-new concert experience.
Tickets for the Rhapsody tour go on sale to the general public starting December 7th at LiveNation.com at 10 AM local time. Queen and Adam Lambert Fan Club Presales will run from 10 AM local time through 10 PM local time on Thursday, December 6th, 2018.
In the UK the release of Bohemian Rhapsody has also given a healthy boost to Queen's music on streaming services. Rhapsody remains their most popular, with 50.4 million streams, followed by Don’t Stop Me Now on 46.1 million plays. When Freddie sang The Show Must Go On all those years back, even he couldn’t have guessed that Queen music would still be storming the charts in 2018. Next summer, the stages of North America will be well and truly rocked again. You can’t help thinking Freddie would be overjoyed.
Queen and Adam Lambert will play on Friday, August 23rd at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, NC. For more information or to purchase tickets go to livenation.com.
