Roger Taylor Concertography 2004-2020

 

This page is an overview of Roger's live career from 2004 to 2020. All of the shows on this page are one-off performances, rather than a fully structured tour.

The list includes almost every show, apart from TV appearances where he only appeared to perform (or mime) a single track, and other artists' shows where he performed on a couple of the artists' own tracks (the shows are included if he performed any tracks by Queen, or his own solo tracks). For a more comprehensive list, with exact setlists and details of live recordings, please see the Queen Concerts website.

All of Roger's appearances with his other solo project The Cross are on their own page.
