Queen + Adam Lambert opened their Rhapsody Tour Wednesday night at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver.
They did 30 songs with a few surprises. They hadn’t played the opener, “Now I’m Here” from Sheer Heart Attack, since 2014. Other gems included the live debut of “Machines (‘Or Back to the Humans’)” from The Works album, and “Doing All Right” from their first album, which they hadn’t done since 1977.
The show also featured a new stage production, which had Brian May wearing a “Frank” mask (the robot on the cover of News of the World) during “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
After the show, May posted, “THANK YOU VANCOUVER! Wonderful welcome! Wow! We survived show number-one! And only a few moments of panic! Ha ha! I’ll be looking at your comments!”
Up next on the 25-date tour is Tacoma, Washington on Friday.
