Queen + Adam Lambert performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live last Thursday night for their first live television appearance in nearly four years.

Adam Lambert previewed a new original song entitled “TwoFux” during their performance, dedicating the track to original Queen front man Freddie Mercury.

“This one is dedicated to Freddie himself,” Lambert shouted from the stage to fans who burst into cheers at the mention of the beloved Freddie Mercury’s name. Watch a clip from the performance:

 

 

Queen and Adam Lambert recently embarked on a 25-city North American tour; the stretch of dates kicked off June 23rd at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona and will hit major cities across the continent for the next six weeks, before wrapping up at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas on August 5th.

These summer shows mark Queen + Adam Lambert’s first full-length North American run since 2014.

The legendary musicians opened their Southern California set at the Hollywood Bowl with their signature smash hit “We Will Rock You” from the band’s 1977 release News of the World.

The 23-song-setlist included fan favorites like “Another One Bites the Dust”, “Fat Bottomed Girls”, “Killer Queen”, “Don’t Stop Me Now”, “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”, and “Under Pressure”. Watch Queen + Adam Lambert perform ‘Under Pressure’ at the Hollywood show:

 

 

The night concluded with a three-song encore including the songs “Spread Your Wings”, “We Will Rock You”, and “We Are the Champions”.

 

 

To coincide with the band’s tour kick-off, Queen and Adam Lambert announced their first-ever live concert virtual reality experience. The “VR The Champions” video, which was filmed during Queen and Adam Lambert’s performance in Barcelona last May, will give fans a front row seat and on-stage view of the show. The video is available online, and so are tickets for their current summer shows. For a list of remaining dates visit Queen + Adam Lambert’s artist page.
