Queen and Adam Lambert have become a synonymous pairing, having created a rock show that still transcends the iconic genre around them. 

Now they’re returning to New Zealand in 2018, having announced details of a new headline tour in February.

Accompanied by an equally new and dazzling state-of-the-art show, Queen + Adam Lambert will roll into Auckland’s Spark Arena on Saturday 17 February.

The upcoming tour follows the success of their sold out arena run across Australasia in 2014.

Paul Dainty, President and CEO of TEG-DAINTY commented, “Queen + Adam Lambert’s sold out tour of 2014 was one of the highlights of my career as a concert promoter, to see those iconic songs come to life was incredible. I am very much looking forward to bringing the band back to New Zealand and Australia in 2018 with this brand new show.”

While Queen drummer and co-founder Roger Taylor insists the 2018 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.”

We. Can’t. Wait.
