Classic British rock band Queen will bring a “killer” show full of well-known and beloved hits to Tel Aviv’s Park Hayarkon on September 12, with American Idol alumnus Adam Lambert as lead singer. The concert will be Queen’s first in Israel. The band, featuring only two original members – guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor – had performed only sporadically since the death of iconic lead singer Freddie Mercury of AIDS in 1991. Bass player Roger Deacon retired from performing in 1997.

But after May and Taylor first performed together with Lambert in 2009 on American Idol, where Lambert was runner-up, they decided to take the show on the road and have been touring regularly since 2011. Lambert is one of the few contemporary front men who can do Mercury’s legacy justice.

Last month, the band began a tour of 15 music festivals in some of Europe’s largest stadiums.

In a possible indication of what Queen fans can expect, in recent shows the band played songs like “Another One Bites the Dust,” “Fat Bottomed Girls,” “Killer Queen,” “Don’t Stop Me Now,” “Somebody to Love,” “Under Pressure,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “I Want to Break Free,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Will Rock You,” “We Are the Champions” and more.

“This is an amazing opportunity at last to bring Queen music live to thousands of folks who have been devoted to our music for years. Can’t wait,” May said.

Lambert added: “I am excited to perform with Queen in Tel Aviv for the first time, and we’re looking forward to giving everyone a show to remember.”

Tickets went on sale on Tuesday, costing NIS 340 for the grass, NIS 640 for the Golden Ring and NIS 890 for the VIP section, and are available at or *8780.
