Queen + Adam Lambert have released the first preview to their upcoming live album, Live Around The World, with “The Show Must Go On.”

Due out October 2, Live Around The World will highlight the band’s favorite performances as chosen by them from over 200 concerts all over the world.

Of the new preview clip, the video’s YouTube description reads, “As the twelfth and final track on ‘Innuendo,’ Queen’s final album released during Freddie Mercury’s lifetime, ’The Show Must Go On’ was created by the band Queen as a tribute to Freddie Mercury’s lust for life even while the Queen frontman’s health was failing, but in this socially-distanced global world of 2020 ‘The Show Must Go On’ – perhaps now more than ever – feels like the perfect anthem for our times.”

The description continues, “This never previously seen Queen + Adam Lambert performance of the song which features on the upcoming Queen + Adam Lambert ‘Live Around The World’ release was captured at the second of the band’s two spectacular shows at London’s O2 Arena on July 4th 2018. Both concerts attracted widespread critical acclaim, with critics noting that ‘many thrilled fans leaving the arena were calling it one of their all-time favorite gigs’ and declaring ‘this is as good as live shows get.'”

Live Around The World is currently available for pre-order in a variety of formats and bundles at QueenOnlineStore.com.
