Queen and Adam Lambert kicked off 2020 with a huge tour across Asia and Oceania. However, the pandemic saw Brian May, Roger Taylor and the singer reluctantly have to postpone their UK and European leg to 2021. Now the Queen guitarist has spoken out on missing performing as he looks ahead with hopes of entertaining fans next year.
Promoting the newly announced Queen and Adam Lambert live album, Live Around The World, the 73-year-old enthused on Instagram: “Gotta say I miss that moment of the huge adrenaline rush – as we head for the stage.
“Fingers crossed we will do it again next May.
“But in the meantime – we can all feel it vicariously with this LIVE AROUND THE WORLD album and DVD.
“Audio is good to go – Lighting is ready for go – Band are walking – Band are walking – Go House Lights !!!“ Bri.”
On the upcoming live album, Roger Taylor said: “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.”
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 together, picking out favourite performances over the past seven years.”
