You can now watch the documentary film titled The Show Must Go On: The Queen + Adam Lambert Story on Netflix, guys! I just did and it was awesome! You can check it out here.
The Show Must Go On tells Adam Lambert’s story—about how he joined Queen as its frontman in place of the legendary Freddie Mercury (deceased). It stars Adam Lambert himself, of course; as well as Brian May, Roger Taylor, Simon Cowell, Joe Jonas, Lady Gaga, Elton John, to name a few.
Queen is touted as one of the greatest bands/artists of all time. Their iconic lead vocalist Freddie Mercury on the other hand, is consistently called/voted as one of the greatest singers and performers in the history of popular music.
If you are only hearing about them for the first time, this documentary is a good place to start (although really, you might have heard some of their songs already). Queen is a British rock band formed in 1970. Their “classic line-up” had Mercury as their pianist and lead vocalist, Brian May as their lead guitarist and vocals, Roger Taylor in drums, vocals, and John Deacon in bass guitar.
Take a look at what the fans are saying about The Show Must Go On: The Queen + Adam Lambert Story online:
I was never really an @adamlambert fan but once I finally opened myself up to seeing him with Queen…— DaboGyrl™© (@DaboGyrl) June 20, 2020
I love him. I love that he doesn't try to BE Freddie.
He's integrated his own thing into what Queen is and it works. #TheShowMustGoOn pic.twitter.com/RSKsF0wyT8
Confession: Queen fan since forever. After Freddie died, I refused to listen to anyone else sing their songs. Since watching #TheShowMustGoOn on @Netflix I realise I lost years of not being in awe of @adamlambert and @QueenWillRock. So, yeah, there's that. Stupid AF I am.— Ireland, Multiple Sclerosis & Me (@WillekeVE) June 21, 2020
I’ve been a fan of @QueenWillRock since I was a little girl. I’ve been a fan of @adamlambert since his first audition on AI. I just watched #TheShowMustGoOn on @netflix and it’s now my life mission to witness them together in concert. The entire doc gave me goosebumps. BRAVO!!!— Miss Lynn ❤️ (@DDubDirtyDancer) June 19, 2020

New queen is like seeing the drag show equivalent of a performer. I get that the guys want more money and this is the way to get it but…. Rock band goes record label selling of pop. That said, we should find a gay guy to become some icon and front a rebrand aged Nirvana. That would sell to all the kids today.
Talented band meets talented young performer in a nearly unwatchable piece of media puffery. I left it at 1/2 hour in, for Season 4 of Bates Motel.
