The documentary showcases how the former American Idol contestant became the iconic ’70s rock band’s new frontman. As previously reported, Lambert initially rose to fame after becoming Idol’s Season 18 runner-up, the “Feel Something” musician first collaborated with the rock band in 2011, which later led to a worldwide tour from 2014 to 2018. Lambert first announced the debut of The Show Must Go On: The Queen + Adam Lambert Story via a tweet on Feb. 25. The documentary comes on the coattails of the already sold-out July/August 2019 Rhapsody Tour which was announced in December.
Containing rare concert footage and exclusive, revealing portraits of the band members offstage, The Show Must Go On chronicles Queen and Lambert’s incredible journey since they first shared the stage on American Idol in 2009,” “From his humble beginnings and meteoric rise on reality TV to now standing center stage as lead singer of Queen + Adam Lambert, the documentary features brand-new interviews with Lambert, his parents Leila and Eber, and Queen founding members Brian May and Roger Taylor, as well as American Idol judge Simon Cowell, Golden Globe and Oscar winner for Best Actor Bohemian Rhapsody’s Rami Malek, and Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins.”
Soon after the 2009 American Idol’s 2009 finale, Queen’s guitarist Brian May hinted to The Rolling Stone he was considering Lambert as the new frontman of the band.
“But [drummer Roger Taylor] and I are definitely hoping to have a meaningful conversation with him at some point,” May said at the time. “It’s not like we, as Queen, could rush into coalescing with another singer just like that. It isn’t that easy. But I’d certainly like to work with Adam. That is one amazing instrument he has there.”
While some may conclude that Lambert may embody some qualities of the late Queen vocalist Freddie Mercury, the 37-year-old wants to make it clear that his mission isn’t to replace Mercury but to keep his memory alive.
Running time approximately 1 Hour 22 Minutes

EXCELLENT!!! Thank you MVR! I had recorded this program on cable Mediacom dvr but did not know how to record it to a dvd. After searching the title online, I found Music Video Resource and so HAPPY to order it from them! After I received the DVD from MVR, I compared it to the program which was still on my Mediacom dvr and it is exactly what I wanted!! So when my cable box and dvr had to be replaced, I was VERY VERY happy to have my OWN physical copy on DVD of THE SHOW MUST GO ON: THE QUEEN + ADAM LAMBERT STORY
… I am so glad that I found your website!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

Great DVD! My favorite Queen documentary. I had it on my cable dvr, but I’m having my equipment replaced soon so I needed my own DVD. Thankfully, I found it at MVR. Great quality DVD and fast service. Will definitely look to MVR in the future for hard to find DVDs.
