In the wake of the massively successful biopic film ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, Queen + Adam Lambert are taking centre-stage at Tokyo’s Saitama Super Arena - and you could be there! This fantastic holiday is an amazing opportunity to join fellow Queen fans for the opening night in Japan of the Rhapsody Tour 2020 and discover the magic of a country that first recognised Queen music almost 50 years ago!

QUEEN IN JAPAN

Following the release of Sheer Heart Attack, in the spring of 1975 Queen first set foot as a band in Japan - much to the joy of their loyal fan base there. Upon arrival they were greeted with over 3000 fans ready to welcome them as Sheer Heart Attack had reached number one in Japan at the time - it was a scene reminiscent of Beatlemania in the sixties! Due to their popularity, Queen returned to the country the very next year. These early Japanese gigs feature some stellar performances, and have gone down in Queen fan history as some of their best ever live shows.

The band has always felt a strong bond with the Japanese people, so much so that Brian May penned "Teo Torriatte" - the closing track on their number 1 album, A Day at the Races, as a thank you to the passionate and loyal fans. Their popularity in Japan only strengthened as the years went by and the band's return with Adam Lambert to Tokyo in 2020 is a testament to the strength of their special bond with between Queen and their Japanese fan base.

DAY 1 - 22ND JAN

Meet up with old friends and new at London Heathrow’s Airport for your overnight flight to Tokyo.

DAY 2 - 23RD JAN

Arrival in Tokyo and transfer to the Ikebukuro district of the city for your 5-night stay in the cosmopolitan Hotel Metropolitan, Tokyo. The remainder of the day is at leisure to get acquainted with the Japanese capital where in April 1975 Queen launched the first of their six tours in the Land of the Rising Sun.

DAY 3 - 24TH JAN

Today will show you just why the band loved Japan, its culture and art! Enjoy a full day tour showing you the highlights of this city of contrasts. Stroll along the centuries-old Nakamise shopping street where typical Japanese souvenirs are sold alongside traditional snacks, before visiting the colourful Buddhist Asakusa Kannon Temple, which is the oldest temple in Tokyo. You’ll see the vibrant Omotesando/Harajuku shopping district epitomising Japan in today’s world. Walk through the massive Torrij gate that marks the entrance to the Shinto Meiji shrine – a peaceful haven in this densely populated city. From the Main Deck Observatory of the Tokyo Tower you can look down at where a 29-year old Freddie and the band sat on what was then a grass lawn alongside traditionally dressed Geishas. You’ll also have the chance to experience a traditional Japanese tea ceremony.

DAY 4 - 25TH JAN

After a day at leisure to explore Tokyo further you’ll enjoy a private transfer to the iconic Saitama Super Arena where the legendary British rock band with Adam Lambert will perform some of the greatest songs of rock history.
