Amp Up Your Evening When You See Queen + Adam Lambert at The Smoothie King Center

Get ready for a night out that will rock you! Queen’s original guitarist and drummer, Brian May and Roger Taylor, are teaming up once more with longtime frontman Adam Lambert on lead vocals for a memorable night at Smoothie King Center next Tuesday, August 20th!

Queen was one of the most popular, ambitious and beloved classic rock bands ever. The London group created an elaborate, perfection-minded sonic approach informed by classical flourishes, ornate piano passages, stacked harmonies, layered guitars and theatrical arrangements. Over the years, Queen songs have become pop culture touchstones. "Bohemian Rhapsody" was used for a pivotal scene during Wayne's World, which helped the song re-enter the U.S. singles charts and peak at No. 2 in 1992, while "We Are The Champions" remains a perennial celebratory anthem for sports teams.

More recently, Queen saw the release of the 2018 feature film Bohemian Rhapsody, which focuses on the band’s formative years and the period leading up to the celebrated performance at the 1985 Live Aid concert. The film has grossed over $900 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing musical biographical film of all time, and helped bring the band back into the spotlight once more.

Since the tragic passing of charismatic frontman, lead vocalist, and piano player Freddie Mercury, Queen tours with former American Idol contestant Adam Lambert, who ably fills in for Mercury on lead vocals. Lambert is an American singer who competed in the eighth season of American Idol in 2009. His tremendous vocal range and theatrical flair made his performances memorable, and he finished second. His first post-Idol album, For Your Entertainment, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see the legendary Queen live with Adam Lambert! Ticket prices will vary and are available at Smoothie King Center or online via Ticketmaster. For more information on available VIP packages, please 504-561-7011.
