Queen + Adam Lambert were joined onstage during their ‘Rhapsody’ tour in Dallas last night by some surprise guests. During a fantastic performance of their legendary hit, ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders appeared on stage at the American Airlines Center to add their irresistible glitz and glamour. You can check the performance out below.
The band’s US itinerary kicked off at the Forum in Los Angeles on 19 and 20 July, before they swung into Dallas for this rapturously-received show. They will be on the road in the US throughout July and August with their ‘Rhapsody’ tour dates concluding on the 23 August at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The band’s spectacular Dallas show has already been attracting rave reviews. The Dallas Voice said in their critique: “Queen was one of the first arena rock bands, one whose showmanship and flamboyance helped define the music (and the culture) of the 1970s. But there wasn’t a song in the lineup that I could say was recorded after the 1980s — Queen was great, and it is great, not as a nostalgia act (despite the presence or original members Brian May and Roger Taylor) but for the sound that transcends generations. This stuff just doesn’t get old.
“Lambert has been fronting Queen for eight years, and it’s true — he’s not Mercury… but he is Adam Lambert, himself a powerhouse singer. The concert could seem cover band-ish, merely recreating old standards, but it’s more thrilling than that. Lambert gyrates (on ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’), wails (on ‘Another One Bites the Dust’) and flounces (on ‘Somebody to Love’), but he’s not doing Freddie — he’s doing himself, the product of a musical landscape for which Queen was inescapable. When he struts out in a studded leather costume (one of at least five changes I counted), his version of a leather man is less Castro District and more Greenwich Village. We all have a little Freddie in us, and Lambert lets his shine through.”
