Press Release: Queen + Adam Lambert to perform New Years Eve Concert – Broadcast on BBC One


Queen + Adam Lambert

Queen + Adam Lambert are performing an exclusive concert on New Year’s Eve from London, close to the iconic landmark of Big Ben, which will be broadcast live on BBC One.

Queen + Adam Lambert Rock Big Ben Live will take place in the build up to the clock striking midnight to see in 2015 and continue after the spectacular, world famous fireworks display along the river Thames, which is also live on BBC One.

Brian May, Roger Taylor and Adam Lambert first toured together in 2012 and have since toured the world to huge critical acclaim. The exclusive performance will feature some of their most legendary hits performed by Adam as their impressive front man, continuing the legacy of iconic lead singer Freddie Mercury.

Roger Taylor says: “I never imagined we would be around to usher in the year of 2015, what a thrill! We promise you a great night.”

Brian May says: “OK – Let’s Rock into 2015!” 

Adam Lambert says: “Words can’t describe how excited I am, we are going to kick off 2015 in style!”

The broadcast of the event will be presented by BBC Radio One presenters Greg James and Gemma Cairney. Last year’s New Year’s Eve celebrations, featuring Gary Barlow’s Big Ben Bash Live, were watched by a peak of almost 14 million people between 23.15 and 00.30am.

The concert is a Phil McIntyre Entertainments event, with coverage produced by BBC In House Entertainment and Events, commissioned by Charlotte Moore Controller of BBC One. The Executive Producer is Guy Freeman.

Charlotte Moore says: “BBC One will be kicking off 2015 in spectacular style with an exclusive live concert from rock legends Queen and Adam Lambert, I hope you join us for a night to remember!”
