Queen are by far one of the most recognisable and celebrated bands of all time. Yet, after the tragic passing of lead singer Freddie Mercury, the two remaining members of band (Brian May and Roger Taylor) teamed up with American Idol season eight runner-up Adam Lambert in 2011. But wait, there's more! Queen + Adam Lambert are currently part way through a world tour that they began back in June 2014.

The tour previous consisted of a United States and Canada tour between 19th June and 28th July. After this, the group embarked on a tour around Australasia, beginning on 14th August in South Korea and finishing on 4th September in New Zealand. The majority of the tour so far has entirely sold out, with two nights on 17th and 18th January at the O2 in London being entirely sold out.

The set list for each of the concerts consists of around 30 songs ending with 'Bohemian Rhapsody', and with an encore usually consisting of 'We Will Rock You', 'We Are the Champions' and 'God Save the Queen' with occasional other additions. And for anyone who was wondering - no, they did not include 'Flash' on the set list. Much to everyone's disappointment.
