Queen and Adam Lambert have issued a video preview of their forthcoming package, “Live In Japan.”
Due December 20, the multi-format release captures the band's headline performance at Japan's largest rock festival, Summer Sonic, on August 17, 2014 at Chiba’s Marine Stadium.
The band’s set of classics also featured a performance of "Teo Toriatte (Let Us Cling Together)", a song written by guitarist Brian May especially for the Japanese fans that also includes Japanese lyrics.
“We all thought it was quite a difficult gig,” says May. “The audience was wonderful, but it was so hot and so humid, it was very difficult to play, but when we saw the video, we thought that it was great and the interaction with the crowd was great."
"The Japanese audience was so passionate, so emotional,” adds Lambert. “You could feel the connection. And it's different than in other countries; there is something very special there."
"Queen + Adam Lambert - Live in Japan" will be released exclusively in Japan in various formats, including DVD, Blu-ray, DVD+Live CD, Blu-ray+Live CD, DVD or Blu-ray+Live CD+Tshirt, and a Super Deluxe Box set (including DVD or Blu-ray+Live CD+2LP+Tshirt+Tote Bag+Photo Book).
