As a trailer to their upcoming Live Around The World album, Queen + Adam Lambert have shared a remarkable new time lapse video of the work that goes into building the massive stage, and huge production behind one of their present day shows. You can watch the time lapse video in full below.
The Live Around The World album will be available in CD, CD + DVD, CD + Blu-ray, and vinyl formats and it will be out worldwide on October 2. The record presents a compilation of concert highlights captured the world over personally selected by Taylor, May and Lambert from over 200 shows they have performed with several featured here becoming available for the very first time.
These cover concerts from Rock in Rio, Lisbon, to the UK’s Isle of Wight Festival, Summer Sonic, Japan, selected UK and North America tour dates, and – from one of their very last performances before lockdown – the Fire Fight Australia benefit show.
All formats include the band’s entire 22-minute Fire Fight Australia appearance in which they performed Queen’s original history-making 1985 Live Aid set in full: “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Radio Ga Ga”, “Hammer To Fall”, “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”, “We Will Rock You” and “We Are The Champions”. While even Freddie Mercury’s iconic “Ay-Ohs” feature.
The twenty tracks featured include firm Queen fan favorites like “Don’t Stop Me Now” and “I Want To Break Free” as well as rarities such as their versions of the Freddie Mercury penned “Love Kills” and “I Was Born To Love You”. The album comes in CD, CD+DVD, CD+Blu-ray and Vinyl versions, with the DVD and Blu-ray featuring extra performance footage which includes a Roger Taylor ‘Drum Battle’ with drummer son Rufus Taylor, and Brian May ‘Last Horizon’ guitar solo.
Brian May said of Live Around The World: “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.
Live Around The World is available on October 2 and can be bought here.
