Last month, the band invited fans to be a part of the Queen + Adam Lambert live album experience by sending photos and videos of themselves at any Queen + Adam Lambert live shows, plus photos of themselves with their copy of Live Around The World to be in with a chance to be featured in the “Don’t Stop Me Now” fan video.
The new fan video features a high-energy rendition of “Don’t Stop Me Now,” recorded at Lisbon’s Rock in Rio festival in May 2016.
Released in October, Live Around The World marks Queen + Adam Lambert’s first live album together, and Queen’s first live record since 1986’s Live Magic, which featured the band’s iconic original frontman, Freddie Mercury. On release, the band won a keenly-fought battle with K-pop girl group Blackpink to enter the UK’s Official Albums Chart at No.1 with Live Around The World.
The 20-track collection features live recordings captured over the past six years – all personally selected by Lambert, guitarist Brian May, and drummer Roger Taylor. In addition to selections from Rock in Rio, the band also picked choice recordings from the UK’s Isle of Wight Festival and Japan’s Summer Sonic, and included the entirety of their 22-minute Fire Fight Australia benefit show, in which the band recreated Queen’s legendary 1985 Live Aid set. Deluxe versions of the album also offer extra performance footage on DVD or Blu-Ray.
A recent review by The Independent declared that Lambert “is the perfect successor to [Mercury], seemingly predestined to revive the supergroup with his own impossible vocals and over-the-top showmanship.” They added that the album finds the singer “breathing new life into some of the greatest rock songs ever written, and putting them across just as boldly and fabulously as Mercury did.”
