Adam Lambert To Headline, Curate Pride Live’s Stonewall Day Concert
Adam Lambert will headline and curate a three-day festival centered around Pride Live’s fourth annual Stonewall Day celebration to elevate awareness and boost the legacy of the Stonewall riots and LGBTQ+ activism.
Lambert was announced as the host of Stonewall Day 2021 back in January, although, at the time, the event was scheduled to take place virtually. It will now be a three-day, in-person concert, taking place June 4 through 6―the 6th being Stonewall Day―at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Per a release, the concert will follow all Los Angeles County health and safety protocols regarding Covid-19.
Along with Lambert, the concert will feature performances from Kim Petras, Angel Bonilla, Chely Wright, Keiynan Lonsdale, Sam Sparro, Vincint featuring Parson James, Qveen Herby and Ty Sutherland, and Zhavia Ward. There will also be feature appearances and remarks from Whoopi Goldberg, George Takai, Yungblud, Blossom C. Brown, Conchita Wurst, David Dawson, Imara Jones, Jordan Hull, and more.
“I wanted to curate an event for Stonewall Day that was about queer performers, centered around the community,” Lambert said in a statement. “I am also very proud to bring Stonewall Day to Los Angeles, as we all carry the Stonewall legacy in our hearts, no matter where we are in the world.”
Tickets for the three-day show are available now via Ticketmaster. The concert will also stream live each day from 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT to 1 a.m. ET/10 p.m. PT on Twitch.
The ability to hold the concert in person is an exciting one for Lambert, who had to postpone tour dates with Queen due to the ongoing pandemic. The group’s Brian May and Roger Taylor, plus Lambert, spoke back in February of the “heartbreak” at having to once again postpone the highly anticipated UK and European ‘Rhapsody’ World Tour dates.
Following a sensational run across Asia and Oceania last winter, Queen + Adam Lambert were originally set to rock the UK and Europe in summer 2020. During the band’s spring break, however, the coronavirus outbreak left them no choice but to prioritize the safety of fans, crew and venue staff by postponing the dates until 2021. They’ll be back in 2022, but fans of Lambert can catch him live at the L.A. Coliseum.
