Queen + Adam Lambert have just kicked off their 3-date run in New Zealand at Wellington’s Westpac Stadium, and they did so in style by including the track ‘I Was Born To Love You’ in their setlist – it was the first time that the band has performed the song outside of Asia!

The track, which was originally a Freddie Mercury solo hit and later reworked for the Queen ‘Made In Heaven’, is incredibly popular in the Far East and was only ever reserved for live shows in that region. Lucky New Zealand!

Queen + Adam Lambert play the following two shows in New Zealand.

7 FEB – Auckland, Mt Smart Stadium
10 FEB – Dunedin, Forsyth Barr Stadium

Remaining tickets are available @ www.ticketmaster.co.nz.


Queen + Adam Lambert dial the theatrics up to 11 for Wellington 6 Feb 2020 by Kylie Klein-Nixon

Folks will tell you stadium rock really died the day people exchanged their bic lighters for the torch on their cell phones. Those folks have never seen 10,000 glittering iPhone torches waving about over Wellington’s Sky Stadium to the sound of Queen and Adam Lambert putting his vocal chords through their paces. 10,000 phone torches lifted in song at Sky Stadium for Queen + Adam Lambert. KYLIE KLEIN NIXON 10,000 phone torches lifted in song at Sky Stadium for Queen + Adam Lambert. “That’s right, light ’em up,” legendary guitarist Brian May says at one point. “That’s what iPhones were made for.”
