Queen + Adam Lambert have added two shows in Birmingham to the UK leg of The Rhapsody Tour this summer.
In addition to their epic 10-night residency at London’s The O2 and two shows at Manchester Arena, Queen + Adam Lambert will play Arena Birmingham on Sunday 14th and Monday 15th June 2020.
Tickets to the two Birmingham concerts went om sale from Planet Rock Tickets at 10am today (Wednesday 29th January).
Queen + Adam Lambert’s UK concerts follow the triumphant success of the North American Rhapsody Tour, which took in 25 shows last summer and saw them perform in front of 400,000 people.
They’re also the first UK and European dates since the release of the Bohemian Rhapsody movie, which made more than £720million at the global box office and won multiple awards, including four Oscars.
Queen + Adam Lambert’s newest production is again the work of Stufish Entertainment Architects’ set designer Ric Lipson and lighting designer Rob Sinclair who both have a long-term association with Queen, including the most recent eye-popping “News Of The World” touring show.
Lipson describes the two-and-a-half-hour production as “a new chapter in the history of the band. Once again for them expanding the parameters of what a live music experience can be, this new show delivers the band’s most spectacular yet, an innovative and interactive celebration of the continued power of Queen’s music.”
First announcing the European tour in September, Queen drummer Roger Taylor said: "We're back and we're hot.”
Guitarist Brian May added: “This is a fearsome new production taking the Queen legacy to a new place. I’m well proud.”
Singer Adam Lambert enthused: “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 full European tour also calls in at Bologna, Paris, Antwerp, Amsterdam, Berlin, Cologne, Zurich, Munich and Copenhagen.
