Queen+ Adam Lambert iHeartRadio Theatre,Los Angeles (June 16th 2014)
Adam Lambert and Queen will give fans a live preview of their North American concert tour tonight! The special iHeartRadio concert live stream from the iHeartRadio theater in Los Angeles begins at 6pt/9et.
Queen’s summer concert tour featuring Adam Lambert kicks off on June 19 in Chicago Illinois.
Nikki Sixx hosted an interview with Adam, Brian May and Roger Taylor first. Roger promised a concert with no click tracks and real singing! Also, there will be lots of early songs on the set list, from when Queen was a heavier rock band. Adam had input on the set design. After a dream about gold, he suggested incorporating more of the color on set. The band was happy to incorporated the idea.
As soon as the mini-concert began with the Queen standard, “We Will Rock You,” it became clear that Adam has been diligent about the throat coat and herbal tea! He sounded superb during Queen’s 9 song set–just a taste, I’m sure, of what fans can expect on tour.
Mid-set, Adam and Brian took to the stools to perform a ballad Freddie wrote with Giorgio Moroder for the movie Metropolis. It’s a song that’s never been performed live. Adam sang “Under Pressure” with Roger picking up David Bowie’s part. Adam’s introduction to “Fat Bottomed Girls”: ‘This is for all the fat-assed bitches out there!’ Ha. “We Are The Champions” ended in a shower of gold confetti, with “Don’t Stop Me Now” closing up the show on an upbeat, energetic note.
We Will Rock You
Another One Bites the Dust
A Crazy Little Thing Called Love
Fat Bottomed Girls
We Are the Champions
Don’t Stop Me Now
Really great share.
I have to admit that Adam Lambert is in better shape with his voice.
Really nice version of Love Kills; it sounds like a Queen song in my opinion (I my idea this version has a build up like Who Wants To Live Forever)
We are two years later since the last concert of Q + AL and this sounds all promising for the coming tour !
Thanks for this share.
It was a Live Stream, but the interview was pre-recorded.
Was the interview filmed in Chicago? & does anyone know when the Interview section was filmed?
BTW the tour stage/set looked awesome!!!
Wow! I know that more than a few people were complaining about the previous set of shows, but I thought this rocked. The band kept the songs recognizable and singable, while Lambert still found a way to make the songs his own.
Their version of Love Kills got me a bit teary. Not sure if it was me missing Freddie, or the magic I felt in hearing it live, but Wow! That worked for me!
Love Kills was epic, i think even Freddie would've gone WOW....... whatever we may think of Glambo , that kid can sing the roof off, he made it his own, if I'm nit picking, I'd like to have heard Brian give it the beans in the middle eight, if they record it that's what I'd like to hear, and by the way I've said on here that I would hate them to record together, but if that was the quality we could expect, it would be......a kind of magic.
