Queen + Adam Lambert Book ‘The Crown Jewels’ Fall Las Vegas Residency
Queen + Adam Lambert will play a 10-date engagement in Las Vegas this fall. The show is being billed as "The Crown Jewels" and it will take place every weekend between September 1 and 22 at the Park Theater at Park MGM.
One of the performances will take place September 8 on Queen Day, a date Vegas ex-mayor Oscar Goodman enacted in 2004. “We're ready to take on the ultimate challenge – to dazzle Las Vegas,” Queen guitarist Brian May said in a statement.
Drummer Roger Taylor was equally excited, adding that he is "looking forward to rocking the Strip." In addition, he declared that fans should love the vocals of “the audaciously and phenomenally talented Adam Lambert."
"I'm so excited to help share The Crown Jewels with the Strip,” exclaimed Lambert. “You'll be humming all night!"
Queen first shared the stage with Lambert in May 2009 during the finale of American Idol. Since that time, the group has played more than 150 shows across the globe.
Tickets range in price from $79 to $350. A limited number of on-stage seats, not including applicable service charges, will go on sale May 11 at 10AM PT through Ticketmaster. Special VIP packages will be available to fans, with advance ticket sales offered to members of Queen’s and Lambert’s fan clubs.
