Queen and Adam Lambert have treated fans to another behind-the-scenes video to promote their brand new Live Around The World album.

Taking to their official YouTube channel, the rockers released footage of Brian May playing a guitar solo to an empty stadium in January 2020 - and it is spectacular!

The spine-tingling moment took place during Queen's soundcheck before the band took the stage at Japan's Nagoya Dome stadium on January 30 - just weeks before the global pandemic put live music on hold.

The video shows Brian May playing his guitar to thousands of empty seats, while Roger Taylor, Adam Lambert and their keyboardist Philip "Spike" Edney play a rousing rendition of 'Hammer To Fall.'

Playing the 40,500 capacity arena marked one of the last times the band played to a sell-out crowd.

The band's latest album Live Around The World features a hand-picked selection of live performances chosen from 218 live shows Queen and Adam Lambert have performed in the past seven years.
