The world is pretty busy fawning over Rami Malik's big screen portrayal of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, and the band has officially decided to capitalize on the success of Bohemian Rhapsody by getting back on the road.

Today, Tampa's Amalie Arena announced that original Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor will be bringing Adam Lambert on tour for a Rhapsody show that hits town on August 18. The only other Florida date is on August 17 at the BB&T Center in Ft. Lauderdale.

A press release says that the six-week, 23-date tour will debut "a brand-new, larger-than-life production" built in part by Stufish Entertainment Architects’ set designer Ric Lipson.

Tickets for the show go on sale December 7 at 10 a.m. and will cost fans $45.75-$171.25.

This definitely beats traveling to Chicago to see Lambert and Queen in action.

Queen w/Adam Lambert: 'Rhapsody.' Sun. Aug. 18, 7 p.m. $45.75-$171.25. Amalie Arena, 400 Channelside Dr., Tampa. amaliearena.com.
