Queen + Adam Lambert announce five extra London O2 Arena shows

From Planet Rock.

Due to huge demand, Queen + Adam Lambert have added five extra shows at London’s O2 Arena to their summer 2020 touring schedule.

Having completely sold out their previously announced first five shows, the band will play additional dates at the Greenwich venue on Monday 8th, Wednesday 17th, Thursday 18th, Saturday 20th & and Sunday 21st June 2020.

Queen + Adam Lambert will now be playing 10 dates at the iconic venue in summer 2020 in front of 200,000 fans.

Alongside the 10 shows at The O2 Arena, the UK leg of Queen + Adam Lambert’s Rhapsody Tour also includes two nights at Manchester Arena.

Queen + Adam Lambert’s UK concerts follow the triumphant success of the North American Rhapsody Tour, which took in 25 shows throughout this summer 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.
