THE BOYS ARE BACK! Queen + Adam Lambert Rhapsody Tour: Opening Night, Belfast, May 27, 2022

After a delay of two solid years due to the pandemic, Brian May, Roger Taylor and Adam Lambert — QUEEN + ADAM LAMBERT — finally were able to start their long-awaited Rhapsody Tour of the UK & Europe on May 27, 2022 in Belfast, Ireland. 

Top of the show, the band appeared onstage to "Now I'm Here," the perfect opener which they have utilized to great effect in several prior tours and here a truly fitting choice, given the two-year delay.  Adam surprised and delighted the audience by starting off his evening's parade of delicious costumes by wearing a stunning, sparkling suit, together with a spectacular top hat that seemed to take inspiration from both Willy Wonka and The Mad Hatter.  Totally magical!  Oh, and, needless to say, Adam sounded absolutely magnificent.

Closer view, but video cuts off even earlier than the one above:

The tour was originally scheduled to debut on May 24, 2020 in Bologna, Italy (the rescheduled dates of which now occur mid-tour on July 10th & 11th) before it was postponed, rescheduled for 2021 and postponed again.  The last time the threesome and their fellow bandmates appeared onstage together was on February 29, 2020 in Gold Coast, Australia.

We will continue to add new video and/or photos to either this post or new they get posted to various social media.

First of all, so glad to see you back, broddy! Missed you!

The videos are absolutely spectacular! That black suit and top hat are perfectly "Adam.' He looked and sounded great throughout. Brian and Roger are in fine form, too, Glad they added "A Kind of Magic" to the set. Perfect choice!

Thanks, Dee! Great to hear from you, too. Well, the concert posts are my favorite things to cover, so had to come back to do this. Our illustrious Admin has returned and has been giving glitzy and me a bit of a break, with all our thanks.

Yes, it looks and sounds wonderful. And I'll be adding more videos as soon as more good ones get posted over the next many hours and days. I just added one — a second version of "Now I'm Here" which was shot by someone much closer to the stage, so the visual is better, but they cut it off a little early, but that's ok.

Yes, I'm waiting for a good version of "A Kind Of Magic."

Ooh thank you broddybounce for finding and posting these videos! I am having so much fun seeing them! Queen and Adam are back in all their glory and Adam is stunning with his outfits and that top hat, yowza!!! Great reviews from Belfast, and its only one show! I pray QAL will come to the US as well! Sorry I’m excited had to use all these “exclamation marks”, Lol

Before I forget I just read that the ABC television channel will present Party at the Palace for June 4th, a 2 hour delay during Primetime at 7:00 or 8:00 pm., depending on one’s time zone. So you guys here in America keep an eye on that. I would be so so so happy to watch this from my living room. Fingers crossed ❤️

A 2 hour delay recording (forgot to mention that). Was thinking UK time is several hours away from me anyways so if we get to see this on ABC at night, why say “2 hour delay recording”? Ugh I’m confusing myself but oh well. Hahaha
