Three years after playing their first live show, Britain’s biggest-selling rock band will finally give fans with Queen and Adam Lambert tickets across Europe the chance to see their new frontman in action when they kick off the fourth and final leg of their world tour.
The 2009 American Idol runner-up first joined forces with Brian May and Roger Taylor during his stint on the talent show, and following a second performance at the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards, the two acts decided to hit the road together for a global trek in 2012.
After a handful of dates in Ukraine, Russia, Poland and England, the two acts went onto focus their efforts on North America, Northeast Asia and Australasia, but will now return to Europe for a more extensive run of shows starting at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena on January 13.
Queen and Lambert, who attracted 12 million viewers with their New Year’s Eve performance at London’s Westminster Hall last week, will then go on to visit Scotland, France, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Denmark, Czech Republic, Switzerland and Poland before heading back to England for three recently added dates, wrapping up at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena on February 27.
Those lucky enough to get their hands on Queen and Adam Lambert tickets should of course look forward to hearing all the classics including “We Are The Champions,” “We Will Rock You” and “Don’t Stop Me Now,” alongside US number ones “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” and “Another One Bites The Dust,” and a rendition of “Bohemian Rhapsody” featuring video footage of the group’s late flamboyant frontman Freddie Mercury.
Queen Team Up With Adam Lambert For First US Tour In Eight Years
Five years after he first performed with Brian May and Roger Taylor on the finale of American Idol’s eighth season, Adam Lambert will once again step into Freddie Mercury’s shoes following the release of Queen tickets for a 19-date North American tour.
The British rock legends, who officially announced the news alongside the talent show runner-up on Good Morning America, haven’t toured the continent since they went on the road with former Free/Bad Company lead vocalist Paul Rodgers back in 2006.
But following the positive response to their series of sporadic European shows with the 32-year-old, the pair have now decided to give their fans on the other side of the Atlantic the chance to get their hands on Queen tickets, starting with an opening date at Chicago’s United Center on June 19.
The supergroup, who last took to the Stateside stage at the 2013 iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas, will then visit the likes of New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, Vancouver, Montreal and Las Vegas before wrapping up at Washington, D.C.’s Merriweather Post Pavilion on July 20.
Lambert, who is currently playing Elliott in the fifth season of Glee, has also gained respect from long-time Queen fans for his powerhouse performances at the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards, a sold-out three-night run at London’s Hammersmith Apollo and a handful of one-off shows in Poland, Ukraine and Russia.
Those with Adam Lambert & Queen tickets should therefore look forward to a spectacular show with everything from the band’s two US number ones (“Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “Another One Bites The Dust”) to the stadium anthems “We Will Rock You” and “Radio Gaga” to a reprise of their first collaboration, “We Are The Champions,” expected to make the set-list.
