Legendary outfit Queen and its new flamboyant frontman Adam Lambert have confirmed they’ll be back in Australia in February.
Armed with a “state of the art” new show, the boys will make stops in all five main capital cities, kicking off in Sydney on February 21.
There’s also an Adelaide date, making the band’s first performance in the City Of Churches in more than 30 years.
Yes, of course they’ll roll out the hits made famous by the iconic outfit and their famed former frontman Freddie Mercury. But they’ve revealed that they’ll also throw in some surprises this time around.
“What people should know if they came to the shows a couple of years back, is obviously we will still be playing the big hit songs you know and love from Queen, but we thought it would be good to challenge ourselves a bit,” Adam Lambert says in a statement. “Change it up a little bit, change the visuals, change all the technology, change the set list to some degree.
“We will probably be pulling some other songs out of the Queen catalogue which we haven’t done before, which I am very excited about.”
Members of both Queen and Adam Lambert fan clubs will have first access to tickets from 10am this Friday, June 16.
Then it’s over to Telstra customers; a Telstra Thanks pre-sale kicking off at 10am local time on Tuesday June 20.
Then the general public will have the chance to snap up what’s left from 10am local time on Friday June 23.
