Queen and Adam Lambert to bring in New Year with London concert
02 Dec 2014
Queen and Adam Lambert will perform a special concert in London this New Year’s Eve to celebrate the New Year.
The concert, Queen + Adam Lambert Rock Big Ben Live, will take place at Central Hall Westminster, which is close to Big Ben. Tickets will go on general sale on Tuesday 2 December.
The exclusive gig will see Brain May, Roger Taylor and Adam Lambert perform their biggest hits in a career-spanning set. The concert will be held in conjunction with the Thames fireworks display starting with the build up to the New Year and continuing after the fireworks.
Queen + Adam Lambert Rock Big Ben Live will be broadcast live across BBC One. BBC Radio One presenters Greg James and Gemma Cairney are set to host the event.
Last year Gary Barlow performed a similar concert, Gary Barlow’s Big Ben Bash Live, which saw a whopping 14 million people tune in to see the Take That star and famous firework display.
The concert leads Queen and Adam Lambert into an exciting 2015, which will kick off with the group bringing their world tour to the UK and Ireland during January and February. Queen tickets are now on sale.
Their tour has received outstanding praise. Notably, Adam Lambert has been commended for his vocals and presence as a frontman, honouring the legacy of Freddie Mercury.
