Queen concert chronology

The Hot Space Tour was a concert tour by the British rock band Queen in support of their 1982 album Hot Space. The tour started on 9 April in Gothenburg, Sweden and ended, after sixty-eight concerts, in Tokorozawa, Japan.[1][2]

Background[edit]

Queen toured Europe, North America and Japan throughout 1982. Several alterations were made to the touring schedule. The first being the cancellation of a planned concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London, due to the venue not being able to cope with the weight of the band's light rig.[3] The second were two rescheduled concerts in England. The concert in Leeds was originally scheduled to take place at Old Trafford in Manchester and the Milton Keynes concert was supposed to take place at Arsenal Stadium in London. The concerts were moved due to potential noise complaints from local residents.[4][5]

A DVD documenting the band's 5 June 1982 concert at the National Bowl in Milton Keynes was released in 2004 as Queen on Fire – Live at the Bowl.[6] The DVD Extras contained video clips and audio clips recorded in Austria and Japan.[7]

The Hot Space Tour was the last of Queen's tours to have concerts in North America. Brian May and Roger Taylor returned to perform in the United States, along with Paul Rodgers, on the Queen + Paul Rodgers Tour.[8]
