GROUP TO KICK OFF LIMITED ENGAGEMENT
‘THE CROWN JEWELS’
AT PARK THEATER AT PARK MGM
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 1
LAS VEGAS (August 28, 2018) – Earlier this afternoon, Queen + Adam Lambert made their grand entrance into Las Vegas by private jet at the MGM Resorts aviation hangar. Immediately after arriving, Brian May, Roger Taylor and Adam Lambert headed straight inside to a press conference to speak with media about their new Las Vegas show, “The Crown Jewels.” Also in attendance were Bill Hornbuckle, president of MGM Resorts International and Kurt Melien, president of Live Nation Las Vegas.
Queen + Adam Lambert will rock the Las Vegas Strip with a 10-date limited engagement, “The Crown Jewels,” at Park Theater at Park MGM. Shows are scheduled for September 1, 2, 5, 7, 8, 14, 15, 19, 21 and 22 at 8 p.m. Tickets ranging in price from $79 to $350, as well as a limited number of On-Stage seats, are on sale now at ticketmaster.com.
Queen + Adam Lambert have come a long way since first sharing a stage for the “American Idol” finale in May 2009. The critically acclaimed creative partnership has since proved to be a global phenomenon, having played more than 150 shows in all corners of the world. Filling stadiums and festivals, Queen + Adam Lambert’s awe-inspiring show has drawn across-the-board rave notices.
In an incredible career spanning more than four decades, Queen’s indelible influence on rock history is unrivalled. The band has amassed a staggering archive of accolades and honors including seven Ivor Novello awards, an MTV Global Icon Award and three songs enshrined in the GRAMMY Hall of Fame. With record sales in the hundreds of millions – their Greatest Hits collection has sold over 6 million copies in the UK alone, meaning one in three UK households own a copy – plus a string of chart-topping albums and singles, Queen are undoubtedly one of the UK’s most successful and best loved national treasures. With one of the most enduring song catalogues of all time, including “We Will Rock You,” “We Are The Champions,” “Don’t Stop Me Now,” “Radio Ga Ga,” “Somebody To Love,” and of course “Bohemian Rhapsody,” their musical repertoire is second to none. The glittering legacy created by Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon lives on through the ongoing partnership of May and Taylor, now joined by Adam Lambert.
November 2, 2018 will see the release of the feature film Bohemian Rhapsody. The bio epic is a celebration of Queen’s meteoric rise through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury.
About Adam Lambert
After blowing everyone away on the eighth season of American Idol, Adam released his debut album ‘For Your Entertainment’ which featured collaborations with Lady Gaga, Pink, Max Martin, and Muse’s Matt Bellamy. It spawned the International hit “Whataya Want From Me,” which earned him a GRAMMY nomination for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. His second album ‘Trespassing,’ featuring collaborators Pharrell and Nile Rodgers, debuted at no. 1 on the Billboard charts and became the first album to reach the number one spot in the U.S. and Canada by an openly gay artist. In 2013 he appeared as a guest star on the hit TV series ‘Glee.’ Adam released his highly anticipated third album ‘The Original High’ in 2015, which entered the worldwide chart at no. 3 and featured the hit single ‘Ghost Town.’ The album, his debut for Warner Bros Records, was executive produced by Max Martin and Shellback. After a sold-out world tour to support the album, he went on to play Eddie in the Fox version of the ‘Rocky Horror Show’ and later that year finished his stint as a winning judge on The X Factor Australia. Adam has been working on his fourth solo album for the past year, and will release new music later this year.
