From “We Are the Champions” to “Bohemian Rhapsody” to “Another One Bites the Dust,” few bands have the ability to consistently churn out monster hits across generations like Queen. Their 1981 Greatest Hits compilation has enjoyed a staggering 1,422 weeks on the British charts on its way to becoming the biggest-selling album in British history, with one in three British households owning a copy. It all began when guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor formed the band Smile, changing their name to Queen after Freddie Mercury joined the London-based band in 1970. Trading their initial hard metal/prog rock sound for more radio-friendly arena rock anthems, the band first experienced international success with 1974 album Sheer Heart Attack, whose hit “Killer Queen” was their first to turn heads in the U.S. They followed that up with 1975’s A Night at the Opera, whose single “Bohemian Rhapsody” was their first to crack the top 10 on the U.S. Billboard charts. This led to Queen tickets for their globe-spanning A Night at the Opera Tour being amongst the most in-demand of the era, with the band known for legendary live shows featuring crazy costumes, elaborate lights and effects, and Mercury’s flamboyant personality. But Queen tickets for one of their most famous early gigs, a 1976 concert before 150,000 people in London’s Hyde Park, were given away for free. The band would continue to pack stadiums across the world, selling out all Queen tickets for a 1976 concert at Madison Square Garden within minutes. But Queen would truly cement their legacy as rock and roll legends with 1977’s News of the World, uncorking enduring classics like “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions” that continue to be played at sports stadiums throughout the world today. They followed that up with 1978’s Jazz, featuring hits “Fat Bottomed Girls” and “Bicycle Race,” the latter of which included a video with 65 naked female bike riders in Wimbeldon Stadium. The success of their live shows led to the 1979 release of the band’s first live album Live Killers, followed by the smash success of 1980 classic The Game featuring “Another One Bites the Dust” and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love.” The album sold over four million copies in the U.S. and topped the Billboard 200 for five weeks. In 1981, Queen tickets became available in South America as the band became the first major rock band to tour the region, performing for 300,000 people in Buenos Aires, Argentina — the largest crowd in Argentine history at the time. That same year they released another one of their biggest hits, their 1981 collaboration with David Bowie titled “Under Pressure.” In 1986 Queen tickets were released for a famous gig at Knebworth House near London in what would become their final concert with Freddie Mercury, who died in 1991 from complications brought on by AIDS. But this didn’t stop Queen from continuing to give the people what they want. In 2005, Queen tickets were released for a world tour with former Bad Company frontman Paul Rodgers. The band, known as Queen + Paul Rodgers, would go on to perform Queen classics from London to Moscow in the band’s first major tour since 1986. In 2012, the band struck out on the road once again with Adam Lambert as Queen + Adam Lambert, with Queen tickets for both London shows on the tour selling out within 24 hours. This year, Queen tickets have been released for a new 19-date North American tour with Adam Lambert that kicks off June 19 in Chicago and ends July 20 in Columbia, Maryland. Queen tickets were released not just for major cities like New York and Las Vegas, but also for smaller markets like Saskatoon, Canada and Uncasville, Connecticut. Whether or not this is the band’s last tour no one knows for sure. But one thing is for sure: the rock kings known as Queen sure know how to put on a show.
