Adam Lambert and Queen close the third annual iHeartRadio Festival

by Martin


Adam Lambert and Queen closed this years iHeartRadio Festival live from the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas which saw the likes of Elton John, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus perform across the two day bill.

Since the festival began in 2011 it has been hosted by Ryan Seacrest and tickets were made available for fans to win them to attend the festival to see their favourite star perform.

Adam Lambert, the former American Idol contestant had the honour of following up from Elton John who was his opening act at the iHeartRadio Festival.

The festival which ran on the 20th and 21st of September saw Adam Lambert and Queen take to the stage just before midnight where they performed a 35-minute set.


Adam Lambert, with a Freddie Mercury like¬†moustache combined with rock legends Queen brought a perfect mix of style, impressive vocals and sex appeal which culminated in the band’s music reaching new heights in front of a worldwide audience.

fun. frontman Nate Ruess joined Queen and Adam Lambert on stage as their special guest and Ruess described Lambert as “the best singer I know” and Lambert proved that throughout the remainder of the set.

Belting out Queen hits ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’, ‘We Will Rock You’, ‘We Are The Champions’ and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody Adam Lambert most definitely introduced Queen to a generation that may never have had an interest in the music beforehand.


Not only that but the star continued with a seemingly endless amount of energy for more Queen classics including ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’ and ‘Another One Bites The Dust’ which saw Lambert entertain fans old and young.

If you didn’t get the chance to see the performance at the iHeartRadio Festival¬†or you just want to see it again because you’re a true Glambert (and you can thank us later) but you can watch the video below.

    I was there that night and it was a long wait before Adam and Queen came on stage but well worth the wait. After Adam opened his mouth to sing Bohemian Rhapsody everything after that was magnificent and can’t say that about most of the other acts. Elton was very good and like Muse but I didn’t understand why Muse played so loud I couldn’t even hear Matt.

    Great article – Queen is iconic – the absolute best – and with Lambert’s vocals and stage presence they emerge anew – as you said – for a new generation. Thanks very much.
