Glamberts went wild Sunday night when Adam Lambert's Queen cover band, which happens to actually be Queen (minus a few key members) opened the 2019 Academy Awards with an homage to Freddie Mercury and Bohemian Rhapsody. Those same fans will now get the chance to see Lambert's journey with the legendary band in the upcoming documentary The Show Must Go On: The Queen + Adam Lambert Story, according to Rolling Stone. Sounds like a Lifetime original hit to me!
Jim Beach and Simon Lupton have produced the documentary, which tracks Lambert's journey from his youth in Indianapolis through becoming a dark horse favorite on American Idol and eventually joining the legendary band. Named for the iconic anthem from Queen's 1991 album Innuendo, the documentary will feature behind the scenes footage, clips from the bands concerts, and interviews with Lambert, Brian May, Roger Taylor, newly minted Oscar winner Rami Malek, and other celebrities..
"So excited about our documentary 'The Show Must Go On - The Queen + Adam Lambert Story' airing on @ABCNetwork on April 29th!!," Lambert tweeted Monday.
Besides his work with Queen, Lambert also has a new album on the way. Last week, he debuted the first single "Feel Something" after sharing an emotional open letter with fans, saying he'd finally made it through a "dark period" and was ready to create again.
"With a bit of professional help and the support of colleagues, friends and family, I pulled myself out of the darkness," Lambert wrote. "I decided to begin my next album on my own so I wouldn't be influenced by anything but my passion for music. I reached out to fellow writers and artists that I'd met over the years and began booking sessions with them. I wanted to make the music I wanted to make, and to get in the headspace I was in when I first dreamed of being a singer-before playing industry game started messing with my love for music."
The Show Must Go On: The Queen + Adam Lambert Story airs on ABC April 29.
