Tickets On Sale Immediately @ www.ticketmaster.co.uk
London – 21th April, 2017. Within one hour of going on sale this morning, Queen + Adam Lambert’s thirteen date UK and Ireland tour set for later this year has sold out. As a ‘thank you’ to fans, the band have hastily scheduled one extra, final date.
Following their three London shows (December 12, 13, & 15), the band will now end their tour with a return for a second show at Birmingham’s Barclaycard Arena on Saturday 16 December. Tickets are on sale immediately.
"Shocked and stunned (in a good way!) that our British tour has immediately sold out, Thanks, Folks, for a wonderful response. To celebrate - and offer a few more chances to see us before Christmas - we're adding one final extra show in Birmingham. OK, we have about 5 months to practise and develop our new show in the USA and Europe. By the time we get back home we should be quite good!"
Yesterday the band announced a second London O2 show after the first sold out in pre-sale. The venue described it as “one of the fastest selling shows of the year at the O2”. The tour is presented by Phil McIntyre Entertainments.
The band‘s UK and Ireland dates, part of a now 26-date European tour, will see Queen + Adam Lambert play 14 massive arena shows beginning in Dublin on 25th November and climaxing with three huge London shows in December and this second Birmingham concert.
These shows will mark the band’s first full British tour in almost three years, having last performed across the UK in January 2015, and will unveil a brand new stage production.
