Queen + Adam Lambert have shared the second episode in their exclusive “lockumentary” video series, Roadies In Lockdown. You can check it out below.
Launched last week at Queen’s Official YouTube channel, the behind-the-scenes Roadies In Lockdown explores the roles of various Queen + Adam Lambert crew members on the road and catches up with them in lockdown. In this second episode, bass tech Jez Webb shares a Zoom reunion with band bass player Neil Fairclough at a time when they would otherwise have been winding down in Madrid, Spain, after Queen + Adam Lambert’s final 2020 European tour show. But that will have to wait until May next year when the postponed tour is scheduled to resume.
During the video, we see their interaction on stage during a Q + AL show and watch them catch up with each other on Zoom during lockdown and learn and laugh with them as to why at times it is all about the bass and that solo. As well as looking after Fairclough, Jez is also responsible for Brian May’s set up for his acoustic performance on the B-Stage.
The Roadies In Lockdown series has been conceived and produced by Tour Video Director, Steve Price, who has worked with Queen + Adam Lambert since 2014 directing all the video elements of the show, Price has been keeping himself busy during current times creating this series of “lockumentary” shorts aimed at providing a rare insight into what it is like being a member of the Rhapsody Road Crew.
Roadies in Lockdown introduces us to the people behind the complexities, magic and hard work that goes in to putting on the huge production that is a Queen + Adam Lambert live show, with behind the scenes and concert footage shot at venues across the globe.
