Queen + Adam Lambert Announce First Live Album

Queen + Adam Lambert are gearing up to release their first-ever live album ‘Live Around The World’, due out on 02 October 2020.

After having to postpone their UK & European summer tour until next year, news of the album will be a welcomed surprise for the almost half-a-million fans who were due to see them on stage this year.

Since first performing together in 2009 after Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor appeared as guests on the finale of American Idol season eight where Lambert was a contestant, they have gone from strength to strength to become one of the world’s biggest touring bands.

Following the global blackout of live shows, the band turned to YouTube to present a special ‘Tour Watch Party’, which was viewed by over 500,000 fans.

Roger Taylor commented, “We hadn’t really watched those clips before, we were always too busy touring…We weren’t aware of how good the band sounded. So we thought, well, maybe there’s a live album of highlights of concerts that we’ve done over the last eight years with Adam Lambert to be made.”

Discussing the historic live album Brian May said, “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.”

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 together, picking out favourite performances over the past seven years’.”

Queen + Adam Lambert’s only previously released track is their lockdown version of ‘You Are the Champions’. The song accumulated close to four million views on YouTube and proceeds were donated towards the Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund for The World Health Organisation.
