Queen + Adam Lambert have announced they're playing a night at Newcastle Arena on their forthcoming European tour.

The brand new tour will kick off at the Newcastle Arena on Tuesday the 13th January 2015.

Having only earlier this month wound down a sold out world tour taking in North America, Australia, New Zealand, and outdoor festival stops in Korea and Japan, Queen + Adam Lambert are sparing no time in taking their critically-hailed partnership back on the road.

Coming two years after May, Taylor and Lambert last performed a short tour together of the UK and Europe, this new tour will see Queen + Adam Lambert perform 21 shows in 10 countries.

The band's tour opens in the UK at Newcastle Arena on January 13th and will see the band play a total of seven shows across the UK including London's O2 Arena.

The tour then takes in France, Germany, Netherlands, Austria, Belgium, Italy, Denmark, and Czech Republic and ends on February 19th in Switzerland at Zurich's Hallenstadion.

Paul Tappenden General Manager for the venue said,
"We are delighted to welcome Queen back following a 6 year absence and with an incredible new front man in American Idol's Adam Lambert this is royally going to kick off 2015 in style"

Queen first teamed up with Adam Lambert in 2009 to perform the band's rock anthem "We Are the Champions" on "American Idol's" season's eight finale.

Lambert and Queen partnered again in 2011 at the MTV European Music Awards in Belfast.

In the summer of 2012 they performed their first live concerts together with three sold-out shows in the UK at London's Hammersmith Apollo as well as concert appearances in Russia, Ukraine and Poland.
