"Queen + Adam Lambert - Live in Japan" will be released in Japan on December 20, 2016. This multi-format release captures the band's headliner performance that took place on August 17, 2014 at Marine Stadium, the main stage of Japan's largest rock festival, Summer Sonic, in its entirety.
The combination of QUEEN's long and legendary standing with the young talent of Adam Lambert made for an unforgettable show. The stadium was filled to the brim with fans eager to see the first live show of QUEEN + ADAM LAMBERT performing together on stage in Japan. The show itself, preluded by "Procession", opened with "Now I'm Here", and what followed was a performance of hit after hit, such as "Another One Bites The Dust", "Killer Queen", "Under Pressure", "I Was Born To Love You", "Radio Ga Ga", "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "We Are The Champions". Another highlight of the night was the performance of "Teo Toriatte (Let Us Cling Together)", a song written by guitarist Brian May especially for the Japanese fans and includes Japanese lyrics.
Even in 2016, two years since that show, May recalls: "We all thought it was quite a difficult gig. The audience was wonderful, but it was so hot and so humid, it was very difficult to play, but when we saw the video, we thought that it was great and the interaction with the crowd was great." Lambert also recalls: "The Japanese audience was so passionate, so emotional. You could feel the connection. And it's different than in other countries; there is something very special there." Drummer Roger Taylor adds: "The audience reaction was fantastic, and it was such a young audience, which was a big surprise for us."
