Get ready! Queen and Adam Lambert are coming to New Zealand

Queen and Adam Lambert are heading to New Zealand!

Bringing their Rhapsody stadium tour to the country, the group will perform some of their biggest hits in Auckland, Wellington and Dunedin.

Original band members Brian May and Roger Taylor will team up once again with long-time front-man Adam Lambert, as well as Spike Edney on keyboards, Neil Fairclough on bass and Tyler Warren on percussion.

Taylor said the band is "raring to get back with our new show", while Lambert promised a "brand-new visual spectacle that will reframe these iconic songs" adding: "We are excited to reveal the show to New Zealand fans!"

This follows the massive success of the Bohemian Rhapsody biopic, which saw actor Rami Malik take the lead of the late Freddie Mercury.

Paul Dainty, President and CEO of TEG-DAINTY said: “With the enormous success of the highest grossing music biopic of all time - Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen’s popularity in New Zealand is as huge as it gets, we can’t wait to bring Queen + Adam Lambert back to New Zealand with this brand new stadium production and watch them bring their iconic songs to life.”
