Queen are really going to let it rock again! The true champions of rock are coming at the end of May 2016 for their only concert in Germany with a spectacular, glamorous production in the Cologne RheinEnergie Stadium. The majestic rock musicians will be appearing on May 27 with Adam Lambert who has led the band to new summits with his perfect stylish mix of rock stage presence, sex appeal and impressive vocal performance.

The captivating combination Queen + Adam Lambert has stimulated euphoric reactions at all of its totally sold-out gigs so far on its world tour in the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Korea, Japan, South America and Europe. Stage, visual effects, design and engineering combine to form an impressive framework for the Queen + Adam Lambert show, which of course includes all the band’s rock hymns and classics. Adam Lambert makes his mark with a vocal range quite similar to the legendary Freddie Mercury, brilliantly reviving the songs to new life.

Queen, who have enraptured their fans with countless no. 1 hits such as “We Will Rock You”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “We Are The Champions”, “Killer Queen”, “Somebody To Love”, “A Kind Of Magic”, “Radio Gaga”, “I Want To Break Free” and “The Show Must Go On”, not to mention memorable live appearances, count among the most successful groups of all time. The inimitable band branded its very own unique music style between pomp and pop, hard and art rock. More than 200 million CDs and singles worldwide and 16 million audio carriers in Germany and Austria alone bear testimony to their outstanding drawing power.

Queen have found an exceptional frontman with Adam Lambert who fills the part of the too soon deceased Freddie Mercury to perfection in his own individual way. The live liaison of Queen + Adam Lambert began in 2009 when they performed “We Are The Champions” together in the American Idol Finals. This was followed in 2011 with an appearance at the MTV European Music Awards and one year later the first selected live concerts. In the autumn 2013 Queen and Adam Lambert decided to go on tour together. Since then there have been more than 70 regal appearances and now Queen + Adam Lambert will celebrate the 40th anniversary of their historic Bohemian Rhapsody in Cologne.
