De News of the World Tour is de zesde tournee van de Engelse rockgroep Queen ter promotie van het album News of the World.

Voor het eerst werden We Will Rock You, We Are the Champions en Love of My Life live gespeeld, drie van de bekende nummers die Queen hielpen om hun concerten bekend te maken. Ook werd voor het eerst een nummer gespeeld waarin Freddie Mercury geen leadvocalen zong (I'm in Love with My Car), maar drummer Roger Taylor. Het was ook de eerste keer dat de band zonder voorprogramma toerde.[1]

In het boek The Show I'll Never Forget: 50 Writers Relive Their Most Memorable Concertgoing Experience, schreef Tracy Chevalier over een van de concerten van deze tournee toen hij 15 jaar oud was:

"The band wisely didn’t dare attempt to reproduce in its entirety the long, baroque confection that is Bohemian Rhapsody. For the infamous operatic middle section, the band members left the stage as the studio recording played. Freddie and Brian then changed costume, and, at the word “Beelzebub”, all four men popped out of a door in the stage floor and joined live again for the heavy metal section, fireworks going off, dry ice pouring out, everyone going berserk, me in tears of excitement. It was one of the best live moments I’ve ever witnessed. Indeed, I was spoiled by seeing Queen play live before anyone else; for sheer exuberant theatricality, no one else has come close."[2]

Robert Hilburn van de Los Angeles Times noemde deze tournee een van de "meest spectaculaire show tot nu toe".[1]

Een van de shows in de Noord-Amerikaanse tournee in de Houston Summit was gefilmd en wordt veel verhandeld tussen fans. In deze show speelde de band niet "Spread Your Wings" en was een van de weinige shows waarin gitarist Brian May zijn gitaarsolo overging in "Now I'm Here" in plaats van "The Prophet's Song (Reprise)".
