When announcing the UK and European tour, guitarist Brian May said: “This is a fearsome new production taking the Queen legacy to a new place. I’m well proud.”

Frontman Lambert added: “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!”

Set designer Ric Lipson described the Rhapsody 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."

Before the Rhapsody run across Europe, Queen and Adam Lambert will play at the Fire Fight Australia benefit concert Sydney’s ANZ Stadium on February 16 to raise funds for the national bushfire relief efforts.
