Queen + Adam Lambert have played 218 shows to date with a total audience of 3,659,232 million fans. But Queen with Adam Lambert have not released music together, until now.

The group will drop Live Around the World for release worldwide October 2nd in CD, CD+DVD, CD+Blu-ray & Vinyl formats.

Brian, Roger and Adam originally had a run of 27 shows across 9 European countries planned. However, the arrival of COVID-19 forced their UK and European summer tour to be postponed until next year. With this in mind, Queen + Adam Lambert looked for other ways to entertain disappointed fans already holding tickets.

The set was inspired by Queen + Adam Lambert’s Youtube watch party

After hosting a special hour long tour watch party featuring live highlights from previous tours across the world. The positive engagement from fans worldwide showed that despite the global blackout of live shows, the show could still go on.

The set includes concert highlights selected by Brian, Roger and Adam from over 200 shows they have performed with several featured here becoming available for the very first time. These cover concerts from Rock in Rio, Lisbon, to the UK’s Isle of Wight Festival, Summer Sonic, Japan, selected UK and North America tour dates. All formats include the band’s entire 22-minute Fire Fight Australia appearance in which they performed Queen’s original history-making 1985 Live Aid set in full: Bohemian Rhapsody, Radio Ga Ga, Hammer To Fall, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions. 

The collection is a first, says Brian May

Brian May said of the historic live album: “As we all grapple with the challenge of creating live shows in a world dominated by a formidable viral enemy, it seemed the perfect time for us to create a collection of hand-picked live highlights from our Queen shows over the last 7 years with our brother Adam Lambert.”

“It’s a first! As you watch and listen to these tracks you’ll be journeying all around the world with us, and experiencing a complete virtual live set. The collection climaxes in Sydney earlier this year when, in support Fire Fight Australia, we recreated the complete Queen Live Aid set. It was a historic event for a great cause – with perhaps the highest adrenaline level since the original Live Aid in 1985. It makes me particularly happy that we can now share this unique moment with the whole world.”

While Adam Lambert added: “ When we couldn’t tour this year we wanted to give the fans something in place of that, and a Live album just felt right. It’s the first time we have released an album together and we have had a lot of fun putting it toge
