Queen + Adam Lambert will play a second Melbourne show at AAMI Park giving fans an extra 30,500 seats to fight over.
The Rhapsody Tour will have Queen playing outdoors in Australia for the first time since the ill-fated Sunbury show of 1974. At that show the crowd boo’d “go home Pommy wankers” while legend has it a roadie for Madder Lake mooned them. A few years later, when they returned, they were on of the biggest bands in the world.
Promoter Paul Dainty tours Queen in Australia. He said, “With the enormous success of the highest grossing music biopic of all time – Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen’s popularity in Australia is as huge as it gets, I am not surprised we have announced an extra show ahead of the general public on sale next Monday. I can’t wait to bring Queen + Adam Lambert back to Australia with this brand new stadium production and watch them bring their iconic songs to life.”
