Queen + Adam Lambert
Queen + Adam Lambert
The soaring success of Bohemian Rhapsody - the Freddie Mercury/Queen movie that is set to become the biggest grossing music biopic of all time - has proven that the public's love for Queen remains as strong as ever. Longtime fans and recent converts will be thrilled to discover then that Queen - original band members Brian May and Roger Taylor, teaming up once more with longtime front man Adam Lambert on lead vocals - will return to Saint Paul for The Rhapsody Tour.
The six-week tour will debut a brand new larger-than-life production. Stufish Entertainment Architects' set designer Ric Lipson says: "Queen + Adam Lambert's Rhapsody tour will, once again for them, expand the parameters of what a live music experience can be. This new show promises to be their most spectacular yet, an innovative and interactive celebration of the continued power of Queen's music."

Pro tip for faster mobile entry: Add your tickets to your phone's "wallet" and have a fully charged battery.
Mobile tickets are like an airline boarding pass which can be accessed with a smartphone via the Ticketmaster app or mobile site in a QR code format and scanned at the gate for entry.
Once you are within 48 hours of your event, log on to your Ticketmaster account and add the mobile tickets to your Apple Wallet/Google Wallet app. Once you have added to the app, your QR code will be accessible for entry. This bypasses the need for Wi-Fi or cellular data at the gates.
