Inside Queen + Adam Lambert's Las Vegas Show
Rock's biggest multi-generational collaboration is hitting Las Vegas for their first ever residency. The 10-show extravaganza is called 'The Crown Jewels: Queen + Adam Lambert', and brings the champions of the world to the Park Theater until September 22nd.
Although Queen rose to stardom in the 1970s, their reign came to an end with the passing of Freddie Mercury in 1991. Fast forward to 2009 when a 27-year-old Adam Lambert auditioned for American Idol by singing the band's anthem 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.
“I’m really glad that I sang Bohemian Rhapsody on American Idol for my audition, ‘cause, if I had not, I don’t know if I’d be sitting here with these amazing gentlemen.” - Adam Lambert
Lambert began his long-lasting collaboration with Queen in 2011 and Queen + Adam Lambert have gone on several world tours since.
“Literally, we would not be here if it weren’t for finding Adam. There’s no one else that could fill those shoes.” - Brian May
Bohemian Rhapsody on the Big Screen
Of course, original Queen frontman Freddie Mercury is getting an encore this Fall in a biopic about his life and the band, Bohemian Rhapsody. The iconic rockstar is played by Mr. Robot star Rami Malek.
“Rami became Freddie to an astounding degree. If you were with him, you would have thought that he was Freddie.” - Brian May
You can visit Queen's court in Las Vegas through September 22nd, and see Bohemian Rhapsody in theaters November 2nd.
