Queen, Adam Lambert Announce 2015 UK & European Tour Dates
The former American Idol contestant and the legendary rockers will reign over a six-week long set of dates across Europe at the start of 2015, hitting our shores in Newcastle on January 13.
Speaking of their upcoming jaunt, Brian May stated: "On the technical side, it's definitely more of a production than two years ago.
"We've had a lot more cities to visit and so I think we all decided to build up the visuals and the stage accordingly, and of course we do all the hits. We have a very interesting set design."
“It's big and daring. We're going to do it to the max. Each time we've worked with Adam with our music, he's just the most incredible front man."
Roger Taylor added: "He's sensational. He has this amazing range, 'cause Freddie (Mercury) had a great range. Adam can really cover it. He's an extraordinary singer and a real talent. I feel he fits into our sort of theatricality. It is very comfortable.” Queen first teamed up with Lambert in 2009 to perform the band's rock anthem We Are the Champions on American Idol's season's eight finale. They also partnered again at the 2011 MTV EMA in Belfast.
Tickets for the UK shows will go on sale from 9.00am this coming Friday, October 3.
