VIDEO: Queen and Adam Lambert perform 1978 classic at Rock In Rio Lisbon

Queen and Adam Lambert are sharing video of their May 20 performance of the band’s 1978 classic, “Don’t Stop Me Now”, at Rock In Rio in Lisbon, Portugal.

Originally released as the second single from the group’s seventh album, “Jazz”, the track reached No. 86 on the US charts and No. 9 in their native UK while the project peaked at No. 6 on the US Billboard 200 and at No. 2 on the UK album charts.

The Rock In Rio event marked the opening date of the band’s summer festival tour, which will see the pairing perform 15 shows across Europe over 6 weeks, wrapping up in Padua, Italy on June 25.

This week the group will play the Sweden Rock Festival on June 9 and the UK’s Isle Of Wight Festival on June 12.

The 2016 run marks Queen’s first live dates since completing a South American tour last September.

The group have also issued footage of their 1984 single, “I Want To Break Free”, from Lisbon’s Rock In Rio event.
