Music | QUEEN + Adam Lambert confirmed!

By on November 9, 2015

We are proud to announce that one of the greatest and most legendary bands in rock history, Queen, will play at Sweden Rock Festival next year!

More than 10 years have passed since Queen last played in Sweden, then at a sold out Globen in Stockholm. Yet the group has remained current, and probably even increased in its popularity since then. Their musical We Will Rock You” drew full houses in Stockholm in 2010, Queen’s music is heard regularly on radio and television, and as recently as last spring sold thousands of tickets for every concert when a tribute show to Queen toured in Sweden.
And in the summer Queens Swedish fans finally get the chance to see Her Majesty in person again! Thursday 9 June 2016 they come to Sweden for the first time in over 10 years!
“This is definitely one of the largest reservations in the festival’s 25-year history,” says Martin Forssman, band booking manager at Sweden Rock Festival AB.
The fact that such a large band, who has not been in Sweden for a long time, making their only Swedish concert at Sweden Rock Festival feels amazing! They come with a large production and playing all their most famous songs, so it is set for a magical evening.
Queen + Adam Lambert has made a success.
In recent years Queen’s original guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor Ditto teamed with singer Adam Lambert and sold out arenas the world over as Queen + Adam Lambert.
After that they for the first time have appeared together in the final of the 2009 “American Idol”, followed by an appearance at the MTV Europe Music Awards, Adam Lambert established as the vocalist for Queen and the band. In 2012 and 2013 they made a number of large concerts and television appearances.
After a sold-out 24date North American tour in 2014 became the group appointed The band of the year during the Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards and voted the year’s best live act of the magazine Classic Rocks readers.
2014 ended in spectacular style when Queen + Adam Lambert was invited for an exclusive New Year’s concert near the landmark Big Ben in London that was also broadcast live on television channel BBC One and was seen by 12 million viewers.
2015 began with sold-out concerts in 10 countries in Europe, and when the tour ended in Sheffield in the UK the band had felled no less than 67 sold-out concerts around the world in less than a year, and received consistently outstanding reviews:
Queen and Adam Lambert delivers two hours of total magic that goes straight to the bone and nervous systems of all who are fortunate enough to experience them. Freddie Mercury might be gone, but he had definitely agreed. (Brisbane Times)
”Did they rock us? Oh YES!” (New York Daily News).
On 18 September this year was Queen back invited to the Brazilian giant festival Rock in Rio for a headline concert at the scene, where they performed a classical concert for the half a million spectators during the festival’s debut year in 1985. The band took the opportunity to book into another handful date in the South America in connection with the festival and all were sold out in record time.
