Both poetically tragic and undeniable brilliant, the story of the greatest rock band of all time never seems to get old.
During the 70s and 80s, Queen took the world by storm with their signature sound, eccentric behavior, and incomparable dynamism. The band produced hit after hit, from the anthems “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions” to the timeless “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Somebody to Love”
However, Queen’s prime time was ended prematurely due to the devastating death of the band’s front man at the hands of AIDS. There is no doubt that Freddie Mercury is the most iconic figure in the history of music, and his talent and inventiveness continues to transcend time. And yet, it seemed like Queen was destined to fade into oblivion without its distinctive and charismatic voice.
However, in recent years, the most iconic band in the world has found a new voice.
Since 2012, Queen founding members Brian May and Roger Taylor have collaborated with Adam Lambert to unleash their soul-stirring tunes to audiences across the world. Indeed, Lambert has toured intermittently with Queen for over four years in a dazzling celebration of Mercury’s lasting legacy. While Lambert does have some tough shoes to fill, and while nobody could ever replace Mercury, the vocalist does share some of the former front man’s eccentricities and attributes, namely a passion for the theatrical and the flamboyant. Lambert, of American Idol fame, also has a tremendous tenor voice with an expansive range, which he uses to channel Mercury when the latter was at his peak.
Queen is back, and they’re inviting you to the celebration! The band has announced a 25-city summer trek that will visit venues such as Vancouver’s Rogers Arena, Edmonton’s Rogers Place, Montreal’s Bell Centre , and Toronto’s Air Canada Centre. This highly anticipated series of concert performances represents the group’s first North American tour since 2014.
Whether you’re a dedicated fan that is desperate for nostalgia, or a new fan that is open to experience the sound of the one of the most successful bands in history, seeing these upcoming concerts are sure to unite music aficionados in the spirit of celebration.
