“While the world agonized at home, we went deep down below, to a cave to record a DVD with some of our bravest fans watching it. ‘Entitlement’ is the first advance of an unreal show, a performance like you’ve never watched, in the peace and quiet of a wet and dark natural gallery. From deep down below, our new live album and DVD is something never tried before and we hope it darkly entertains you until our next album comes in 2023.”

Queen + Adam Lambert Announce “Rhapsody Over London” Concert Spectacular

Queen + Adam Lambert have announced a new concert spectacular, which they are calling “Rhapsody Over London.” The live film was recorded at The 02 in London, UK and it will debut on July 24 via Kiswe’s global streaming platform.

The band shared more information on their official website:

“Queen + Adam Lambert today announced details of Rhapsody Over London, an exclusive concert spectacular, filmed live at The 02 London during their current sold-out European Tour, that will premiere live on July 24th via Kiswe’s global streaming platform.

The exclusive Live Concert Film will feature a LIVE Q&A with Brian, Roger and Adam, speaking backstage from the penultimate show of their European tour. Fans around the world will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase tickets and submit their questions via video by July 19th, for the band to see and answer live during the Q&A.

The concert will only be available until 31st July on the platform and accompanied by special VOD packages, where fans will have access to additional concerts and interviews. The acclaimed documentary ‘The Show Must Go On, The Queen + Adam Lambert Story’ will be available exclusively for ticket holders for a full two days prior to the livestream.

The concert was filmed during the band’s sold-out 10-day run at The O2 Arena, London in early June. Having been attended by over half a million concertgoers during the 2022 36-date European tour, Queen + Adam Lambert’s “Rhapsody Over London” live concert film is set to reach a worldwide audience of millions more when the experience premieres online on July 24.

The broadcast will give fans around the world one more chance to experience the magic of the Rhapsody Tour. A massive undertaking, utilising 26 cameras and a crew of over 100 film technicians, the production presents the band’s two and half hour show in its entirety. The audience will also be able to interact with fellow fans throughout the show using Kiswe’s fan engagement features, including fan chat feed and cheer buttons, fan react videos enabling viewers to upload video selfies, purchase custom digital stickers, and the ability to buy exclusive in-concert merchandise.

In a dazzling 28-song performance, Queen + Adam Lambert’s live show honours Freddie Mercury’s dictum that “too far is never far enough” with state-of-the-art video content, lasers and pyrotechnics.

Adam Lambert’s vocal prowess and showmanship is a special effect in itself, soaring to the ecstatic high notes of “Somebody to Love”, and appearing on a bejewelled Harley Davidson bike for “Bicycle Race”. But at its heart the Rhapsody show stays a very human honouring of the core band’s work, as Brian May simply strums his acoustic guitar to 20,000 people for his A Night at the Opera gem “‘39”, and duets with film of Freddie on a moving “Love Of My Life”. Roger Taylor performs a majestic “These Are The Days Of Our Lives” as moments from Queen’s history poignantly plays out on the expansive screens.

A full arsenal of hits are refreshed by the band’s live virtuosity, May’s Red Special guitar finding new sorcery in “A Kind of Magic” as well as reaching stratospheric heights in a towering guitar solo. Taylor and Lambert emulate Bowie and Mercury in a thunderous “Under Pressure”. “Bohemian Rhapsody” resurrects Queen’s glorious 1975 harmonies before a cyborg-masked May’s rousing solo, and Lambert’s rush to the front for the storming finale.

Drummer John-Fred Young also commented on the show:

“To be honest, I was terrified. It was heavy walking in there. You think about how many great acts have played this place. The prestige behind it. We’ve wanted to play the Royal Albert Hall since the first U.K. tour in 2007. Dudes from the middle of the country in Kentucky to go out here and have built an amazing group of people that we care about and come to our shows and support us. To know that with all that hard work and dedication we have put into Black Stone Cherry, we’ve accomplished something here. Walking in that place, it’s just breath-taking. You walk on that stage, and you say, we did it, and it’s a feeling that I will cherish for the rest of my life.”

Robertson added:

“We’ve headlined Wembley Arena, we’ve headlined festivals, but you walk into this place, and it’s different. I remember watching footage of Zeppelin here, and now we’re here.”

The Ocean To Release “Phanerozoic Live” In November

The Ocean will be releasing a new live album/film titled “Phanerozoic Live“ on November 26. Pre-orders can be found HERE.

The band commented:

“‘Phanerozoic Live’ is a live album like no other – it is a live album that was recorded in a cultural vacuum, a bizarre time that we will remember for the rest of our lives: a time when the world as we knew it suddenly stopped spinning. ⚫️

It is a live album that does without all the qualities that we usually appreciate about a live album: without the sounds of a cheering, excited crowd. But it is the very absence of this, it is the eery silence between the songs that reminds us of what we miss most, and that gives these recordings a rare intensity and power. 🔥

This release is yet another master class of record packaging from Norwegian artist and long term friend and collaborator, Martin Kvamme: the trifold is made from thick, rough and incredibly fibrous cardboard, adorned with a filigrane copper foil embossing of a bitmapped live fotography from the Bremen event. It contains 3 vinyl records in printed inner sleeves, a DVD and a concert ticket with a streaming and HD video download link to both concerts. 👌🏻

‘Phanerozoic Live’ is out November 26 via Pelagic Records and now available for pre-order on 3xLP / 2xCD + DVD / Download here: https://listen.pelagic-records.com/theocean

All was well until Slymenstra lit me on fire during her torch dance. With friends like that, who needs enemies?”
