Queen and Adam Lambert announce Australian stadium tour
April 8, 2019

Buoyed by the massive success of Oscar-winning biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, rock band Queen will embark on a massive tour of Australian stadiums in early 2020.

The iconic group will once more enlist singer Adam Lambert as their frontman, singing the songs made famous by the late, great Freddie Mercury.

Expect ‘The Rhapsody Tour’ to be quite possibly the band’s biggest Australian tour ever, with Queen ruling the charts again, almost 50 years after they first formed: Including the Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack, the band has three albums inside the ARIA top 10 this week.

Bohemian Rhapsody has so far earned $55 million at the Australian box office, making it one of the top-grossing films of all time in this country.

“We have a brand-new visual spectacle that will reframe these iconic songs and we are excited to reveal the show to Australian fans,” said Lambert in a statement.

The tour’s set designer Ric Lipson said fans could expect something truly spectacular from The Rhapsody Tour.

“Queen + Adam Lambert’s Rhapsody tour will, once again for them, expand the parameters of what a live music experience can be. This new show promises to be their most spectacular yet, an innovative and interactive celebration of the continued power of Queen’s music,” he said.
