An unprecedented event in Elvis Presley‘s famous stomping ground just set this career mega-hit on fire – and took the Vegas Strip with it!
Taking to the stage for their epic limited-run residency in Las Vegas, hard-rocking powerhouse band Queen – joined by their new frontman (and American Idol star) Adam Lambert – paid homage to The King during the opening night of their new show.
Queen and Adam Lambert will be performing regularly in Vegas for their limited-engagement event that runs from September 1st – 22nd, 2018.
But for a show during their debut weekend, this iconic band and remarkable vocalist paid Elvis Presley some respect by honoring him in song – and they truly made headlines with this fiery, amped-up rendition of his hit.
Singing “Heartbreak Hotel” – one of Presley’s classics from 1956, Queen and Lambert rocked the stage at Park Theater MGM in a way that nobody else has!
Playing a full set of classic hits and revamped tunes, this new show is definitely a must watch for anyone headed to Las Vegas soon.
“Adam has a real gift from God,” Queen member Brian May said before the show opened. “It’s a voice in a billion, nobody has that range, nobody that I’ve ever worked with, not just the range but the quality throughout the range. I’ve seen Adam develop just like I watched Freddie develop.”
