Queen + Adam Lambert have kicked off their North American Rhapsody tour in style by delivering a 30-song set at Vancouver’s Rogers Arena.

The tour was first revealed in December last year, with the the live extravaganza described as a “brand new larger-than-life production.”

The setlist featured a wealth of classic tracks including Seven Seas Of Rhye, Hammer To Fall, Killer Queen, One Vision, Radio Ga Ga, Under Pressure, Crazy Little Thing Called Love and Another One Bites The Dust.

They left the stage only to return shortly after to perform We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions.

Video footage from the performance has now appeared online and can be found below, along with the full setlist.

Speaking previously about the tour, Stufish Entertainment Architects’ set designer Ric Lipson said: “Queen and Adam Lambert’s Rhapsody tour will, once again for them, expand the parameters of what a live music experience can be.

“This new show promises to be their most spectacular yet – an innovative and interactive celebration of the continued power of Queen’s music.”

Guitarist Brian May added: "This is a great opportunity. Our last tour featured our most ambitious production ever and got us our best notices ever. So we decided to rip it apart and get even more ambitious!”

The Rhapsody tour continues later tonight when Queen and Adam Lambert play the Tacoma Dome in Washington State.
