The set list for these dates will more than likely be exactly the same as they have just played. Would love to see them mix it up and change at least 4 songs but it won't happen.

Was excited by the thought of hearing some 70s 'deep cuts' (It's Late, Spread You Wings) so slightly disappointed by their exclusion given the theme of the tour. Wonder why they were omitted?

Still be a great gig mind, AL seems to sing more of the 70s stuff than PR did ten years ago.

Agreed. It would be great to here less well known songs or more from the NOTW album. I guess what we have yo remember is that their biggest selling album is Greatest Hits and a lot of the audience are not necessarily olde fans from the early days, although there are a lot of them still, many are more casual Greatest a Hits fans so that is who the Setlist is designed to entertain.

I'm a huge Free and Bad Co fan, and enjoyed the PR tours, but I always thought that he seemed not to want to go to far into the Queen catalog.

From the first dates with Lambert, in 2012 they seemed to be more willingness to explore some older hits or stage favourites, which I guess they're still doing.

Nothing new, but still good :D .
I prefer to watch the show from the front though, so I like this video of Spread your Wings better:

And I won’t give up my hope, that they will include it in the upcoming gigs in Europe.

Nicki, I was looking for that one but couldn’t find it. I like it better, too! I hope they add those two songs again this summer!

That article isn't about the tour though. It's the Who is Adam Lambert biography...that just happens to have the dates of the shows near the bottom of the page.

And I posted it from a UK source! Some people in the UK may not know that information.

I wouldn't call The Sun a source of anything other than crap. It's one of the tabloids that hounded Freddie before he passed away.
The info is out there, easily found about Adam. Pretty much that article is an AL biography, and not even much to do with the upcoming tour. Just mostly a rehash, with dates of some shows at the bottom of the page.

I’m surprised to read that The Sun is a tabloid that was unkind to Freddie since the article I posted was quite positive about Adam. I thought the Daily Mail was the nasty one.

Many tabloids treated Freddie and many others, in the public eye and out like utter shit through the years. A postive article, rather bio about AL will not make up for how horribly the treated Freddie... personally speaking nothing could ever make up for it.I hope AL will never be treated half as bad by the tabloids as Freddie and many others were in their life times.
Daily Mail, The Sun, The Mirror aren't worth the paper it's printed on, IMO. F**k them all.

Adam was treated shabbily by Bill O’Reilly the week of the Idol finals which may have contributed to him not winning. He has received a lot of grief for his AMA performance and sexuality and hasn’t performed at US award shows since.

As you have stated many times before.
I'm not so sure if Bill was the contributing factor of Adam not winning a talent award show. And I know Adam has performed on the Much Music Awards and he actually won at the time. I don't think him being gay has much to do with some things as you think it was...or is. Thing is, I think he has for themlast couple of years, and at least as of now, AL has put more time and energy into Q+AL than his solo career. Hell, things have changed even since his last album was released.
Personally, I think the tabloids hounding a dying man is much worse than anything AL has gone through since being in the public eye. In a way, you are very fortunate that AL hasn't been treated so badly by the overseas tabloids.
