Queen, with Adam Lambert, to launch tour, including Chicago date

LOS ANGELES  — Queen and Adam Lambert are launching a six-week North American tour following the release of the Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

Live Nation announced the 23-date tour Monday. It will feature original band members Brian May and Roger Taylor with Adam Lambert singing lead.

It will kick off in Vancouver, British Columbia, on July 10 and will swing through Chicago with a stop at the United Center on August 9th.

It will end in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Aug. 23. Other venues include Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Dallas and Atlanta.

Tickets for the “Rhapsody” tour will go on sale on Dec. 7.

Lambert says they have been “designing a brand new visual spectacle that will reframe these iconic songs and we are excited to unveil it!” He first shared the stage with Queen during the 2009 “American Idol” final.

The tour follows the group’s September run in Las Vegas.
