Roger Taylor announces Liverpool date as part of new Outsider tour
Queen’s Roger Taylor is embarking on a national solo tour – with a date at Liverpool’s 02 Academy this autumn.
The superstar drummer will play the Hotham Street venue on October 8 in support of his new album Outsider, written during lockdown and which is due for release on October 1.
But along with solo numbers he will also perform Queen favourites.
He will appear with a band specially assembled for the tour including Queen + Adam Lambert’s keyboardist Spike Edney and supporting drummer Tyler Warren, plus guitarist Jason Falloon and Goldfrapp live players keyboardist Angie Pollock and bassist Charlie Jones
Tickets go on pre-sale at 10am on Tuesday, June 8 and general sale on June 11. Fans who pre-order the new album on the 71-year-old’s website before 4pm on June 7 will get early access to the pre-sale tickets.
Taylor says: “For some time now, we’ve all just been trying to get by.
“Now, it’s back to the basics, myself and some great musical pals getting back out there to play some rock.
“Obviously we’ll include some of the Queen classic catalogue, and some of my earlier solo work, but we’ll also be introducing them to some of the new stuff. So we hope folk are going to come on down.”
The Outsider tour sees Taylor’s first solo shows in two decades.
