Queen fans are invited to join Brian May, Roger Taylor and Adam Lambert live and in person across the world for the live stream to launch their brand new album Live Around The World.
The three band members will take part in an exclusive album launch live stream Q&A hosted by Matt Everitt on Thursday, October 1 at 10:00h PDT/13:00h EDT/18:00h BST.
The Q&A will feature questions submitted from both press and fans, and will be followed by an exclusive preview of 3 full length videos taken from Live Around The World. Visit Queen’s official website for further information about the event.
The Q&A will also go out as a live stream on Queen’s official YouTube channel at the same time, but on YouTube the stream will not include the 3 full length videos taken from Live Around The World. Once the live YouTube stream is over, the full Q&A will remain on the channel for fans to watch.
Available worldwide on October 2, Live Around The World 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.
