Queen Has Played New Zealand, Next Stop Australia

by Paul Cashmere on February 12, 2020

in News

Queen + Adam Lambert have played the first three shows of their 2020 The Rhapsody Tour and will kick off the Australian leg of the tour in Brisbane on Wednesday (13 February).

Since the tour started in Vancouver in July 2019 there have only been a few changes to the set. ‘Machines (Or Back To Humans)’ from The Works album, which hadn’t been performed by Queen since 1984, has been dropped. Brian’s solo song ‘Last Horizon’ has been replaced with Freddie’s ‘I Was Born To Love You’.

‘Dragon Attack’ and ‘The Show Must Go On’ have been juggled around the setlist but overall the setlist is pretty much intact to what was first performed in July 2019.

Here is what to expect from Queen when they play Australia this week and next.
