Queen + Adam Lambert are getting ready to hit the road for a summer tour that kicks off June 19th in Chicago, but first they made a stop at the iHeartRadio Theater Los Angeles Monday night to give fans a preview of what promises to be an epic tour.
Queen + Adam Lambert Live The rock icons and “American Idol” alum brought down the house with favorites like “We Will Rock You,” “Under Pressure” and “We Are The Champions,” but it was their live rendition of Freddie Mercury’s obscure solo song, “Love Kills,” that got people talking. It was the first time Queen has ever performed the track, which was the first song Freddie Mercury recorded as a solo artist (but never performed live). “We’re going to do it in our own way,” Adam Lambert told the crowd, “minus the disco.”
Check out Queen + Adam Lambert’s full setlist from the iHeartRadio Live show:
“We Will Rock You”
“Another One Bites the Dust”
“Crazy Little Thing Called Love”
“Fat Bottomed Girls”
“We Are the Champions”
“Don’t Stop Me Now”
Nikki Sixx hosted the event, which was broadcast on Clear Channel radio stations across the country as well as streamed live on Yahoo! Screen. At the end of the show, Sixx told the audience, “I don’t know about you, but I could have heard 15 [CORRECTION: “maybe 25″] more songs.” Us too, Nikki! Guess we’ll have to catch them on tour.
