Due to overwhelming demand, a second show in Toronto, ON has been added to the Queen + Adam Lambert summer tour. Brian May, Roger Taylor + Adam Lambert will now wrap their 24-date tour at Air Canada Centre on Monday, July 28. The tour is presented by Live Nation.
Queen + Adam Lambert received glowing reviews for their performance together at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas last September, triggering a conversation between Adam, Roger and Brian to take the show on the road. Rolling Stone said, “Lambert astounded the audience on songs like ‘We Will Rock You’ and the closing ‘We Are The Champions’ and ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’. It was the most anticipated act of the night.” Billboard claimed, “…Queen effectively stole the show, with timeless songs that music fans of all genres can sing along to” and the Hollywood Reporter exclaimed, “Adam Lambert, Queen bring down the iHeart house. With the perfect mix of rock attitude mixed with style, theatricality, sex appeal and impressive vocal gymnastics, [Lambert] took the band’s music to new heights.”

The former voice of The Commodores, Lionel Richie went on to a sterling solo career. Some of his hits remain unequalled even today
with their catchy lyrics, groovey tunes, or soul-inspiring ballads. He is one of R’nB’s reigning monarch when it comes to
music that is smooth like molasses. Amongst his myriad hits are “Penny Lover,” “Endless Love” (with Diana Ross), “Sail On,” “Ballerina Girl,” and “Dancing on the Ceiling.” A concert with Lionel Richie at the helm is a night fit for royalty.

“Visions of murder, catastrophe, transfiguration and desperate love issued from the stage…set to dirges, stomps and inexorable crescendos.”– NEW YORK TIMES
“Right up there amongst the best frontmen of this or any generation. No one on the circuit can both command and terrify a crowd quite like Nick Cave.”– DALLAS OBSERVER
“Thanks, Nick Cave, for ruining pretty much every other show we’re going to see for the rest of the month. Or year. Or ever. There’s no way anybody is going to top what we saw on Saturday night… it was a mind-blowing evening of rock ‘n’ roll.” — NASHVILLE SCENE
Following a wildly captivating – and completely sold out – North American tour in early 2013, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds return to the U.S. in the summer of 2014 to take care of some unfinished business.

This tour announcement precedes the release of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ Live From KCRW (Bad Seed Ltd). The fourth official live album in the band’s catalog will feature stripped-down songs from the band’s most recent studio album, Push the Sky Away, as well as other tracks from their discography. Live From KCRW will be available November 29th in both CD and double vinyl formats exclusively at Record Store Day stores.
