The Hot Space Tour was a concert tour by the English rock band Queen, supporting their 1982 album Hot Space. A DVD documenting the band's 5 June 1982 concert at the Milton Keynes Bowl outside London was released in 2004 as Queen on Fire - Live at the Bowl. Concerts in Japan and Austria were recorded and added to the DVD as extras.

The Hot Space Tour was the last tour of the band that took them to United States until the Queen + Paul Rodgers Tour in 2006 (the band stopped touring completely in 1986 due to Freddie Mercury's health, and did not tour again until the Queen + Paul Rodgers Tour commenced in 2005).[1][2] The Hot Space Tour comprised 69 shows and three legs.

Billy Squier was the opening act during the North American leg of the tour.[3][4]
