Rhapsody Tour Kickoff: Queen + Adam Lambert Live Debut "Machines"

Queen continues to keep the music alive with their latest Rhapsody Tour. The legendary rockers have managed to deliver their feel-good anthems to the world with some vocal help to fill the void that the irreplaceable Freddie Mercury left behind. The original remaining members of the band are Roger Taylor and Brian May
For this tour, they've enlisted American Idol season eight runner-up Adam Lambert once again to take the vocal reign, or has he expresses, "an intrepretation," NOT a replacement.
They kicked off worldwide Rhapsody Tour last night, July 10th, at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC, Canada. The tour will go on until February 2020 over the course the three legs!
All the North American dates are sold out, and if you got to catch their opening set last night, then you walked away with a night to never forget. Their 31-song setlist delivered all the catchy and addicting Queen anthems, along with deep cuts to satisfy the die-hards.
They started the night with "Now I'm Here," a song they hadn't done since 2014. From there it was a cluster of beloved deep cuts amongst some great anthemic tracks like "Killer Queen" and "Somebody to Love."
It was 14 songs in when they did the live debut of "Machines (Or Back to Humans)"! This was followed by the classic "Radio Ga Ga," (fun fact, this song inspired Lady Gaga's stage name!)
"Machines" + "Radio Ga Ga" Live
During "Love of My Life," the backing screen displayed a powerful image of Freddie at the end of the song. May sang this one acoustically so it was a moment that carried ALL the feels. Soon after, they performed "Doing All Right" - Queen hadn't performed this number since 1977. The first verse was only sung by Roger Taylor.
There was no better way to end the main set than with "Bohemian Rhapsody. They came out to a tape recording of "Ay-Oh," with Freddie from Wembley Stadium in 1986 on the screen. Then the band went into the two most known rock anthems in perhaps the world - "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions."
