Huge news for Shanghai’s massive population of Glamberts. After packing the house earlier this year, the charismatic singer returns to Mercedes-Benz Arena on September 26, fronting - oh, just the legendary rock band, Queen. The Shanghai show is just one of five stops on the band’s Asia tour and tickets are available from RMB380-1,680.
“What an amazing opportunity,” says Queen’s legendary guitarist Brian May. “After over 45 years of touring the world it’s great to be breaking new ground in Asia. Queen has found a new energy and life with Adam, and I look forward to seeing happy faces out there”.
With stone cold classics like ‘We Are the Champions’ and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ to their name, Queen has found new life since linking up with the American Idol runner-up. While replacing the band’s iconic singer Freddie Mercury is an impossible task, the Queen + Adam Lambert team-up has been warmly embraced.
They’ve packed stadiums across the world and drew in over 12 million TV viewers for their 2014 New Year’s Eve live performance on BBC. Recently, they headlined Rock in Rio Lisbon playing to 74,000 people and were announced as headliners to the famed Isle of Wight Festival.
“I have been lucky enough to visit Asia recently and am so thrilled to be able to return there to perform with Queen,” says Lambert. “We are going to give you a show to remember”.
