Legendary rock group Queen, along with Adam Lambert, are back on the road this summer and ready to rock once again. With 23 tour dates in North America, and stops in Korea, Japan, New Zealand, and Australia in 2020, this is surely an experience you won’t want to miss.
Queen quickly became one of the most innovative and revolutionary rock bands of the 70s and 80s. They put out their first debut album in 1973, and continued to release albums all throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s. From the iconic 1975 “Bohemian Rhapsody”, to the 1977 hit songs “We Will Rock You” and “We Are The Champions,” Queen continued to put out hit after hit, with a sound that was like no other. Other fan favorites include “Killer Queen,” “Another One Bites The Dust,” “The Show Must Go On” and “Don’t Stop Me Now” which can all be found on the 2000 album The Platinum Collection (Greatest Hits l, ll & lll).
This is not the first time Adam Lambert has joined the band on stage. Lambert first sang with the rock sensation back in 2009 during the season 8 finale of American Idol. Lambert has continued to perform with the group since 2012, accompanying them on tours all around the globe.
The 2018 hit film Bohemian Rhapsody brought Freddie Mercury’s story of following his dreams to life. The film gained huge success, taking home 4 Oscars in the process. The movie was positively received from Queen’s lead guitarist himself, Brian May, and attracts both old and new generation Queen fans to the screen. The 2019 Rhapsody Tour compliments the film and acts as a tribute to Mercury, all while celebrating the Queen legacy that began over 4 decades ago.
While nobody can replace the late Freddie Mercury, known as one of the greatest entertainers of all time, Queen chose Adam Lambert as their lead vocalist for a variety of reasons. Lambert’s range is comparable to Mercury’s, and he effortlessly hits the mark on those difficult songs to sing on key. Lambert doesn’t claim to be a replacement for Freddie Mercury, but he keeps Queen’s songs alive with his radiant energy and seriously high range. He’s a Mercury fan like anyone else, a natural performer in his own way, embracing his individuality like Mercury embraced his.
