Queen + Adam Lambert Add Shows to 2023 Rhapsody Tour

Brian May and Roger Taylor

Due to significant demand, Queen + Adam Lambert have added second concerts in eight cities to their highly acclaimed Rhapsody Tour back to North America, where it first began in 2019. Brian May, Roger Taylor and their frontman Adam Lambert have announced an expanded and updated production this fall, produced by Live Nation. Tickets for the new concerts will be available via a general on-sale beginning on April 7 at 10 a.m. local time here.

The newly knighted May says, “Our last tour featured our most ambitious production ever. So we decided to rip it apart and get even more ambitious. Watch out world.”

As with last year’s U.K. and European dates, the 2023 North American tour will see Queen + Adam Lambert supported on stage by their regular band members, long-serving Queen keyboard player and musical director Spike Edney, bass guitarist Neil Fairclough and percussionist Tyler Warren.

From the March 24, 2023, announcement: Queen + Adam Lambert’s 150-minute career-spanning set list celebrates the band’s extraordinary back catalog, lining up wall-to-wall immortal anthems like “We Will Rock You,” “Don’t Stop Me Now,” and “Somebody To Love,” alongside classic deep cuts and vintage fan favorites. The production features a dazzling state-of-the-art stage design, incredible special effects and set pieces.

Having extensively toured over the last few years, the Rhapsody show is forever evolving. But it remains at heart a tribute to Freddie Mercury’s majestic legacy, a confirmation of May and Taylor’s musical prowess, plus a magnificent showcase for Lambert’s vocal skills and electrifying stage charisma, all of which adds up to a glorious full-blooded celebration of one of the greatest songbooks in rock history.

In an effort to help minimize resale and keep ticket prices at face value for fans, the band are collaborating with the venues’ ticketing partners to restrict the ability to transfer tickets for The Rhapsody Tour so that they may only be transferred between fans at the original price.

Fans will still have protection against unforeseen circumstances. Those who purchase tickets and are no longer able to attend their show will be able to sell their tickets at the price they paid using a face value ticket exchange, including the Ticketmaster Face Value Exchange – which is free to use for buyers and sellers. More information on how the Ticketmaster Exchange works is available here.

[The states of NY, IL, and CO have laws in place which protect ticket scalpers – these laws prohibit artists from being able to restrict the transfer of their tickets to face value exchanges only. For shows in these states, Queen + Adam Lambert strongly encourage fans to only buy or sell tickets to one another on face value exchanges. More information can be found here, with more details to follow in the coming weeks.]
