After a four-year gap, the revised and extended Rhapsody Tour by British rock band Queen and American vocalist Adam Lambert is returning to North America. On Friday, drummer Roger Taylor, guitarist Brian May, and Lambert announced they would make a fall trip back to the area where the tour began in 2019.
Roger Taylor, drummer of the band, said, “We do our best to keep ourselves engaged continually as it’s good to shift the concert around, even in subtle ways. Of course, we make some deep cuts while still playing the well-known tunes that everyone is familiar with. Individuals are curious about their knowledge. But it’s excellent to include a few surprises people might not expect to liven up.
The tour will visit 14 locations across the United States and Canada, including performances in Baltimore, Boston, New York, Atlanta, Toronto, Denver, Chicago, and Dallas, before wrapping up in Los Angeles in November. The events are being marketed as a part of Queen’s Rhapsody Tour, which runs from 2017 through 2019.
Due to the pandemic, the band hasn’t visited North America for four years. According to guitarist Brian May, who recently got honored by King Charles III, he, Taylor, and vocalist Lambert have strengthened their friendship.
Queen’s “Face It Alone,” which features the late vocalist Freddie Mercury, was discovered again and premiered in October. The song was first made during recording sessions for the band’s top-charting album “The Miracle” in the late 1980s but wasn’t released.
The launch of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the Oscar-winning biopic of lead vocalist Freddie Mercury, who passed away in 1991, has helped the band gain recognition. They are currently riding the wave.
