25-DATE EUROPEAN TOUR WITH NEW STATE-OF-THE ART SHOW

For their 2017 tour, the band will unveil a brand new show including a specially designed state-of-the-art production. The choice of performance material will no doubt acknowledge this year’s 40th anniversary of Queen’s biggest-selling studio album to date, News of the World from 1977, which yielded the immortal anthems “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions”.

Queen drummer and co-founder Roger Taylor insists the 2017 tour “will look entirely different to the show we took around before. Production has really changed a lot, the things you can do now, you have a much broader palette, the technology has really come along. But we don’t use it all. We don’t play to click track. It’s 100% live. We're planning on doing stuff we either haven't done before or haven't done for a long time. We started as an albums band, that's what we were. The fact that we had hits was just a byproduct.”

Guitarist Brian May confirms Queen’s 2017 shows will have a more ambitious musical agenda. “The general public knows the hits, so you've got to cater for that,” he says, “but we can chuck in a few things that people really don't expect. We’ll do quite a bit more of that this time around. There are so many dimensions to Adam, which of course fits with our music. He can get down and do the rock stuff really dirty, and you have all those dimensions, and we can explore that even more.”

This is the performance that got Queen interested, according to Roger Taylor in the interview above:

O2 ARENA LONDON; SOLD OUT ! ;)

DUE TO OVERWHELMING POPULAR DEMAND QUEEN + ADAM LAMBERT ADD SECOND SHOW IN LONDON AT THE O2 ON WEDNESDAY 13th DECEMBER

QUEEN+Adam Lambert announce second show!
http://www.queenonline.com/en/news-arch ... o-uk-tour/

London – 20th April, 2017.
Fresh from announcing their 11-city UK and Ireland tour earlier this week, Queen + Adam Lambert today announce a second December show at London’s O2 Arena. The added date, December 13, comes after their first announced show sold out during the ticket pre-sale becoming “one of the fastest selling shows of the year at the show O2” according to the venue.

40.000 people are obviously paying to see more than confetti and pyro, so sorry for you. :mrgreen:
