After the rock band Queen had a big presence at Sunday’s Oscars, ABC unveiled plans for more prime-time Queen content.

The network announced a two-hour special, “The Show Must Go On: The Queen + Adam Lambert Story,” which will air Monday, April 29. The broadcast comes ahead of Queen and Lambert’s sold-out July and August U.S. Rhapsody Tour.

“With 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 together on ‘American Idol’ in 2009,” ABC says in today’s announcement. “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.”

  1. Oh god…not more Queen. Too much of that buck-toothed youzer is beyond our ability to enjoy.The flaming Lambert at the Oscars was bad enough.

    Give us Grateful Dead, Rolling Stones, Mumford & Sons, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Dwight Yoakum, even Annie Lenox. BUT NO MORE QUEEN!!!

  2. Freddie Mercury passed away in the early 1990’s of AIDS.
