With a new album in the pipeline, the first new studio album to carry the Queen name since the Freddie Mercury sessions, the band are heading back on the road for a four-month tour. Once again vocals will be provided by musician/singer/songwriter Paul Rodgers who joined the band in 2005.

The Queen featuring Paul Rodgers 28-date arena tour will take in 14 countries in just seven weeks, and take the band to Northern Eurasia, Central and Southern Europe, and the UK, and is expected to wind up at the end of the year with the band’s highly anticipated return to South America.

The UK dates are:

Friday 10, Nottingham Arena
Saturday 11, Glasgow SECC
Monday 13, London O2
Tuesday 14, Cardiff Arena
Thursday 16, Birmingham NIA
Saturday 18, Liverpool Arena

Tickets for all UK dates will go on sale at venue box offices and usual ticket agents from Saturday April 5.

Queen’s last studio album release was ‘Made In Heaven’ released in November 1995 containing the last recordings with Freddie. The album became the band’s biggest selling studio album, with world sales in excess of 20 million.
