Queen + Adam Lambert Fans Drenched At First Australian Show In Brisbane

Queen + Adam Lambert’s first Australian show in Brisbane last night was a washout but, like the song, the show must go on.

Brian May took to Instagram to describe the deluge.

What did I say about rain ? Jeeez. … probably the wettest gig we ever played. All the weather forecasts – even on the day – were completely, utterly wrong … it changes everything, of course, and just plain endurance becomes a big part of the evening. But we WERE prepared to a degree. And somehow the sharing of this insane occasion breeds a strong feeling of brother and sisterhood ! And adding in a strong sense of humour the night became very special. Thanks folks – in all that torrential rain I don’t think one person relinquished their post !! Yeeeeeow !!! Bri (video : Pete !) 💥💥💥💥 And yes I did play my original Red Special tonight – I would never play a gig without her. And yes she and I both got very wet – and yes – it’s not good for either of us ! But – the Show Must Go On – and it was worth it to see those happy faces !! Bri
