Queen + Adam Lambert return to Nashville's Bridgestone Arena this fall

·1 min read

Rock legends Queen will come back to the States for their first shows here in four years, and the trek includes a stop in Music City.

The band — currently fronted by "American Idol" rock belter Adam Lambert — will return to Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on October 25, a Wednesday night.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, March 31 via Ticketmaster.

Queen and Lambert last came to Nashville for a 2019 concert at Bridgestone as part of their "Rhapsody Tour." That's still the name of this latest jaunt, but the band promises a new experience for those who attended last time.

“Our last tour featured our most ambitious production ever," guitarist Brian May says in a press release. "So we decided to rip it apart and get even more ambitious. Watch out world.”

Lambert has toured with Queen since 2011, after first performing with co-founders May and Roger Taylor on "Idol" in 2009. He is the third lead vocalist to work extensively with the band, following the death of iconic frontman Freddie Mercury in 1991. (Bad Company's Paul Rodgers previously toured with the group from 2004-2009.)

"There is no replacing the rock god, Freddie Mercury," Lambert told their Nashville audience in 2019. Every time I take the stage, all I'm hoping for is that I'm doing his memory proud, and that I'm celebrating his amazing legacy, and this amazing band with all of you guys."
