In the first two months of 2020, Queen and Adam Lambert toured across Asia and Oceania. However, their planned UK and European leg was postponed due to the pandemic. But now as they gear up to release their first live album, Brian May and Roger Taylor have shared an incredible time-lapse video showing how their massive concerts are set up and performed.
Don’t Stop Me Now is played as the crew set up the monster stage for Queen and Adam Lambert concerts around the world.
Clearly it takes a lot of work to prepare for these impressive shows.
Brian May wrote on his Instagram: “Brian May Trailering ! LIVE AROUND THE WORLD album and DVD/Blu-ray imminent !! Bri
While Roger Taylor added: “A glimpse at the work that goes into building the massive stage and huge production behind our show!”
But, as mentioned previously, Queen and Adam Lambert are releasing their first live album in the meantime.
Titled Live Around The World, the record will be released worldwide on October 2nd on CD, CD/DVD, CD/Blu-ray and Vinyl.
What with the pandemic seeing the band’s summer dates postponed, they felt it was “the perfect time” to release a live album.
May said: “As we all grapple with the challenge of creating live shows in a world dominated by a formidable viral enemy, it seemed the perfect time for us to create a collection of hand-picked live highlights from our Queen shows over the last 7 years with our brother Adam Lambert.”
The Queen guitarist added: “It’s a first! As you watch and listen to these tracks you’ll be journeying all around the world with us, and experiencing a complete virtual live set.
“The collection climaxes in Sydney earlier this year when, in support Fire Fight Australia, we recreated the complete Queen Live Aid set.
“It was a historic event for a great cause – with perhaps the highest adrenaline level since the original Live Aid in 1985. It makes me particularly happy that we can now share this unique moment with the whole world.”
