Queen and Adam Lambert stream tour watch party special

Queen + Adam Lambert are streaming a YouTube Tour Watch Party special this weekend to mark what would have been the completion of a UK arena tour.

The postponed series was due to start in Italy on May 24, with the itinerary also including a massive run of 10 London O2 concerts as well as a pair of shows each in Manchester and Birmingham, before further mainland Europe dates were set to conclude with two Madrid shows on July 7 and 8.

While appreciating that it won’t be the same as seeing them perform live, the band instead are providing an all-access pass to a specially compiled show of highlights from previous tours on the day that they would have played their final O2 London concert.

This never before seen hour-long show will feature standout live band performances of many of the best known and loved songs from the Queen catalogue - plus rarities such as “Love Kills” and “I Was Born To Love You” - performed together at the Rock In Rio festivals in Lisbon and Rio de Janeiro; the Global Citizen Festival in New York; Fire Fight Australia; Japan’s Summer Sonic Festival; the UK’s iconic Isle of Wight Festival; an exclusive iHeart Radio performance in Los Angeles, … and not to forget from Dallas, Texas, the much sought out “Fat Bottomed Girls” performed with the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.

The Tour Watch Party special will be available online for 24 hours only.

Queen and Lambert have rescheduled the UK and European Rhapsody tour, which will now take place in the spring and summer of 2021.

All tickets will be valid for the rescheduled show dates; ticket holders are advised to contact their point of purchase for information on ticket exchanges for the 2021 dates.
