Queen and Adam Lambert: first night video & pics

Queen kicked off their US tour with Adam Lambert at the United Centre in Chicago.

Brian May has described the tour as “one last swing around, one last gallop, and we’ll see how it goes”, and adds, “we haven’t done it for a long time and I don’t know how long we’re going to be capable of doing this kind of thing.” Judge for yourself below, in a fifty-second clip of We Will Rock You, courtesy of Queen and Adam Lambert.
