Queen + Adam Lambert will perform in London on New Year's Eve (31.12.14).

The 'We Will Rock You' hitmakers are thrilled to be presenting some of their most famous hits at a special show close to Big Ben, both before and after the iconic clock strikes midnight to signal the turning of the year.

Roger Taylor said: ''I never imagined we would be around to usher in the year of 2015, what a thrill! We promise you a great night.''

Brian May added: ''OK - Let's Rock into 2015!''

And Adam has promised the group - whose original frontman Freddie Mercury died in 1991 - will ''kick off'' the new year ''in style''.

He said: ''Words can't describe how excited I am, we are going to kick off 2015 in style!''

'Queen + Adam Lambert Rock Big Ben Live' will broadcast live on BBC One in the UK and will take place in the build-up to midnight, before continuing after the famous fireworks display along the River Thames.

Charlotte Moore, Controller of BBC One, said: ''BBC One will be kicking off 2015 in spectacular style with an exclusive live concert from rock legends Queen and Adam Lambert, I hope you join us for a night to remember!''

Tickets for the special show go on sale tomorrow (02.12.14).
