Queen has once again rocked the stage with singer Adam Lambert and opened the recent London concert celebrating Queen Elizabeth’s 70-year reign with an incredible performance of classic “We Will Rock You.”
Her Majesty, has become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service. Queen opened the show as Lambert walked out the stage in front of Buckingham Palace and later Brian May was raised above the stage on a platform to deliver his classic solo.
The legendary band also performed their hits “Don’t Stop Me Now” and “We Are the Champions.” May also appeared at the palace, where he performed on the roof to mark the Queen’s golden jubilee in 2002. Before the 2022 show kicked off, the guitarist told BBC:
“We have some new presentation ideas, so it’s going to be very interesting.
“We have some songs which I think everyone knows, and they have a special relevance tonight.”
While Lambert stated about the performance:
“It’s wild. We’re on tour right now so we’re ready to go… it always feels great to be a guest of Brian and Roger [Taylor] on the stages around the world. And now, to be a guest of the United Kingdom for the jubilee, it’s a huge honor.
“As I was on stage here for rehearsal, I turned around and realized… I was just in the gate of the palace. I thought, ‘Well, this is definitely the most surreal thing I think I’ve done in a while!’”
Drummer Roger Taylor added:
“We want to bring joy and really kick off proceedings with a big kick.”
The Platinum Party at the Palace also featured a pre-recorded performance by Elton John and live sets by Rod Stewart and Duran Duran, among others. Check out the video below.
