Queen + Adam Lambert (the active members of the legendary British band Brian May and Roger Taylor together with American vocalist Adam Lambert) have just announced a handful of North American and European dates for this year. The band will perform in Žalgirio Arena, Kaunas, on November 17th, 2017.
This is the first long-term collaboration of Queen since the Queen + Paul Rodgers project ended in 2009.
Queen and Lambert first performed together in 2009 when Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor appeared as guests on American Idol on which Lambert was a contestant. Soon after the show (which Lambert didn’t win), May indicated to Rolling Stone that he was considering Lambert as a front man for Queen.
In November 2011, Lambert joined Queen for a performance at the MTV Europe Awards in Belfast where Queen received a Global Icon Award. Soon after that, Queen + Adam Lambert played their first full concert at Kiev's Independence Square for a joint show with Elton John.
Queen, one of the most popular, ambitious and beloved classic rock bands ever, formed in London in 1970. Their classic line-up was Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon. Mercury, the lead vocalist and principal songwriter, died from AIDS in 1991.
The show in Kaunas will be the only one in the Baltic States - the band hasn’t announced any concerts in Scandinavia, too. This means you should book the concert tickets (on sale from April 21st - follow the link!), flights and a hotel as soon as possible.
