Following the enormous success of the Bohemian Rhapsody motion
picture, Queen + Adam Lambert are hitting the road again for
their third tour of North America. The Rhapsody Tour builds
on their spectacular 2017 live show, featuring a new stage and
lighting rig by Stufish Entertainment Architechs. The setlist
is largely inspired by the Bohemian Rhapsody movie soundtrack,
and also includes a few surprises like Doing All Right, Machines
and Dragon Attack. The pre-recorded opening is a new orchestral
arrangement of Innuendo by Stuart Morley with Brian May on guitar.
The 25 date tour began in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
and continues through most major cities in North America, including
two dates at The Forum in Los Angeles and two dates at Madison
Square Garden in New York City. After North America, the tour
will continue in 2020 with two shows in South Korea, six shows
in Japan, three dates in New Zealand and seven concerts in Australia.
