Watch: Queen + Adam Lambert perform hits medley at US tour opener in Phoenix
Queen + Adam Lambert fans foaming at the mouth to catch the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers fronted by the former "American Idol" star, during their newly launched summer tour of North America, can whet their appetite with newly posted live footage. The video is from The Queen + Adam Lambert Tour 2017-2018 opener on June 23 in Phoenix at Gila River Arena. T
The legendary British rockers and their charismatic frontman rocked fans in The Valley of the Sun with a hit-filled 25-song setlist and have posted setlist details along with professionally-shot footage from the show on June 24 at their official Queen website. The Phoenix date was the first of an extensive 27-city romp through the U.S. and Canada, which will wrap up Aug. 5 in Houston at Toyota Center in celebration of the 40th anniversary of their classic 1977 studio album News of the World.
The video features the multi-platinum sellers and their controversial singer belting out a string of the band’s greatest hits from the Gila River Arena gig, including “We Will Rock You,” “Another One Bites the Dust,” “Killer Queen and “Fat Bottomed Girls.” Given the pro quality of the footage, fans can likely expect a DVD release of the show sometime in the future. Fans can check out the clip above.
Queen + Adam Lambert made a rare live TV appearance Thursday ahead of their U.S tour launch on ABC’s "Jimmy Kimmel Live," performing their 1989 single “I Want It All.” Fans can check out the clip here.
