It's 2018 and 11 of Billboard's Hot Rock chart songs are by Queen, many of which are nearly 50 years old — proving both that rock 'n' roll in 2018 sucks and that Queen are the champions forever. We are not mad about it.

Following the success of this year's Freddie Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody — which is on pace to be the highest grossing biopic of all time — 2009 American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert and Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor are riding the wave and once again teaming up, this time for a 23-date North American stadium tour.

The "Rhapsody" tour will storm Detroit's Little Caesars Arena on July 27 at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, Dec. 7 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased by visiting here.

You can watch the official trailer for the tour here and/or take in Mercury singing the best duet of all time by himself below:
