Sweden Rock Festival, Sölvesborg, Sweden
Thursday 9 June
QUEEN + ADAM LAMBERT UK/US
Only show in Sweden
FESTIVAL STAGE, THURSDAY 9 JUNE, 22:15
Few bands in music history can be called unique. Queen is one of those few. In 1973-91 they gave the world a mixture of hard rock, progressive rock, pop, showtunes… virtually everything. And became monumentally successful in the process. Not just the band, but an entire era expired with frontman Freddie Mercury in 1991.
In 2005, Queen’s guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor, who played together since before Queen even existed, began a first world tour with the constellation Queen + Paul Rodgers. This was a great success, followed by a studio album and another worls tour in 2008. In 2011, the time had come to once more add new blood to the Queen family. The young, and stupendously talented Adam Lambert was discovered on “American Idol” in 2009, and got to know Brian and Roger as well. They hit it off, to put it mildly.
These last few years, the constellation Queen + Adam Lambert has toured the world with astounding success, performing the immortal Queen classics. “Another One Bites The Dust”, “We Are The Champions”, “We Will Rock You”, “Tie Your Mother Down”… to name but a very few. Now they will also be arriving at SRF 2016. We are lost for words to describe how extraordinary that is. A phrase like “the highlight of the festival” feels painfully inadequate. More: SWEDEN ROCK
