Update 8/20: Queen + Adam Lambert announced their first live album — click here for full details


The Instagram account of Brian May, guitar god and Queen icon, has been a near-constant source of information over the past few months.

From his personal news of “ripping his glutes to shreds” gardening and suffering a frightening heart attack to thanking the fire crews that saved his home from a wildfire in Surrey to other announcements, May has kept quite busy in terms of letting folks know what’s going on — and his latest tease is a big one. It looks as if the esteemed band (and Adam Lambert, of course) have something important to announce later this week:

What’s this mean? Is it a live stream gig of some sort? An archival concert stream? A tour announcement for 2021, once the COVID-19 pandemic (hopefully) subsides enough to allow the resumption of live music?

We’ll have to wait and see. And, if you didn’t watch the Instagram post all the way through, the big news will be revealed at 4 p.m. PDT on Thursday, Aug. 20 (that’s 7 p.m. EDT and 12 a.m. Midnight BST, depending on where you are around the globe).

In the meantime, revisit Queen + Adam Lambert’s charity recording of “You Are the Champions,” premiered in early May and dedicated to medical and healthcare professionals fighting the virus worldwide:

The accompanying credits for the charity anthem:

Innovatively collaborating via Instagram between London, Cornwall and Los Angeles, Brian May, Roger Taylor and Adam Lambert in their respective homes recorded a spontaneous new version of Queen’s classic anthem with some subtle changes. The result, now finished off, mixed and mastered, is being released under a new title – all proceeds going towards Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund for The World Health Organisation.
