With Bohemian Rhapsody – the Freddie Mercury biopic starring Rami Malek – bringing Queen and its music to massive renewed public attention, the surviving band members and longtime frontman Adam Lambert have announced a 23-date North American summer tour.

The “Rhapsody” tour kicks off July 10 in Vancouver, BC, and continues through August 23 in Charlotte, NC. The Forum in Los Angeles and New York City’s Madison Square Garden are among the play dates. See entire tour itinerary below.

Lambert said the band has been “designing a brand new visual spectacle that will reframe these iconic songs and we are excited to unveil it!”

“This is a great opportunity,” said Brian May, Queen’s lead guitarist. “Our last tour featured our most ambitious production ever and got us our best notices ever. So we decided to rip it apart and get even more ambitious! Watch out, America!”

Drummer Roger Taylor added, “We are ready for America and raring to get back in the saddle.”

The tour, produced by Live Nation, follows a run of 10 sold-out shows at Las Vegas’ MGM Park Theater in September 2018.

Lambert has been singing with the band off and on since 2009, when they shared his American Idol stage. Since then, they’ve played more than 180 concerts together.

Rounding out the band are keyboard player Spike Edney, Neil Fairclough on bass, and Tyler Warren on percussion.
