People who pre-order Lambert’s new album before 12pm on January 17 will be entered into an exclusive pre-sale for the event, and on at 9am on January 20 general tickets for the show will go on sale here.

High Drama will go on sale on February 23 and in 2022 Adam Lambert teased that his new album would be a 'rock opera' concept collection.

"I’m working on a concept album," he said at the BandLab NME Awards.

"I can’t say much about the concept yet but it’s about a person, it’s a story. A musical of sorts. Or a rock opera, anyway you want to call it," he added.

High Drama has been confirmed as a covers album and will showcase worldwide hits including Lambert's recently release own take on Duran Duran’s 'Ordinary World'.
