Queen + Adam Lambert were forced by the coronavirus outbreak to postpone their much anticipated ‘Rhapsody‘ European summer tour which would have seen the band end it’s run of 14 UK arena shows at London’s The 02 today (Sunday June 21). They are out to prove that even in these lockdown times the show can still go on.
Appreciating that it won’t be the same as seeing them perform live, the band instead are providing an all-access pass to a specially compiled show of highlights from previous tours on the day that they would have played their final O2 London concert. The band will partner with YouTube for a special Queen + Adam Lambert Tour Watch Party, Sunday, June 21st at 8:00 PM BST/3:00 pm EDT @ www.youtube.com/queen
This never before seen hour-long show will feature standout live band performances of many of the best known and loved songs from the Queen catalogue – plus rarities such as ‘Love Kills’ and ‘I Was Born To Love You’ – performed together at the Rock in Rio festivals in Lisbon and Rio de Janeiro; the Global Citizen Festival in New York; Fire Fight Australia; Japan’s Summer Sonic Festival; the UK’s iconic Isle of Wight Festival; an exclusive iHeart Radio performance in Los Angeles, … and not to forget from Dallas, Texas, the much sought out “Fat Bottomed Girls” performed with the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.
A seat at The O2 may not be an option right now, but Queen + Adam Lambert are out to show that they can still rock you.
Queen + Adam Lambert’s lockdown version of “You Are the Champions,” all the proceeds of which are going towards the Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund for The World Health Organisation, has already been viewed close to 4 million times in its first month on YouTube.
