The band were set to head out on a huge UK and European tour last summer, but the jaunt was rescheduled to May – July 2021 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
But the dates have now been rescheduled to 2022 kicking off with two shows at the AO Arena Manchester on May 30 and 31. They have also added two extra UK shows at The SSE Hydro, Glasgow on June 2 and 3.
Tickets for the latter gigs are on sale now and can be purchased here. You can see the full list of rescheduled dates below, which also include a 10 night residency at London’s O2 Arena.
“Under continuing Europe-wide Covid restrictions there’s no possible way the tour can go ahead as planned for this year,” Queen +Adam Lambert said today. “The prospect of again not being able to look forward to performingand getting to experience those wonderful audiences is just heartbreaking.”
All previously purchased tickets continue to be valid for the corresponding rescheduled shows.
Ticket holders will be contacted by their point of purchase for information on ticket exchanges for the new dates.
In a statement the band added: “We wish to make it clear. None of the shows from 2020 and 2021 have been cancelled, just re-arranged due to COVID-19. We really do hope that as many people as possible who were booked for those original dates in 2020 will still be able to join us for the shows.”
