The album is entitled Queen + Adam Lambert ‘Live Around the World’ and is set for a worldwide release on October 2nd. The Live around the World release will be available on CD, CD+DVD, CD+Blu-ray & Vinyl formats

Queen + Adam Lambert - 'Live Around the World' Album - October 2nd

It doesn’t seem like 11 years since Brian and Roger appeared as guests on the finale of the eighth season of American Idol. It was on that show that Adam Lambert was a contestant and it was there that Brian and Roger got a sneak peak of what might be. Since then they have performed over 200 shows to over 3 and a half million people around the world including recent concerts in the southern hemisphere with audiences of over 60,000.

Unfortunately due to Covid-19 that number should be higher as 27 concerts had to be abandoned due to the ongoing virus pandemic. Had those concerts gone ahead the audience numbers would surely have topped the 4 million mark by now. Those shows have now been rescheduled for 2021 – all going well. This new live album release is a way of easing the pain, in some way, on those who would have seen the shows.

The recent live watch party on YouTube saw Queen’s 12.5m subscribers watch show highlights and there were over 500,000 views in the 48 hours the show was availabe to stream. The content and the popularity was a surprise to the band also, as they hadn’t see much of this footage due to being always on the road. Roger stated that he wasn’t aware how good the band sounded.

The new album set list

The set list on the new album spans many concerts – unlike some live albums, such as Wembley ’86, this is from various sources. These include Rock in Rio, Lisbon, the Isle of Wight Festival, Summer Sonic, the Japanese tour, selected UK and North America tour dates, and all 22 minutes of the the Fire Fight Australia benefit show in Australia (which if you didn’t know was the same set list as Queen’s original history-making 1985 Live Aid set in full: namely Bohemian Rhapsody, Radio Ga Ga, Hammer To Fall, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions).
