Ovation: Queen & Adam Lambert Announce North American Summer Tour.

03/07/2014

MTV Europe Music Awards 2011 - ShowSinger Adam Lambert, who rose to fame when he appeared on season eight of American Idol and  made history in May 2012 by becoming the first openly gay vocalist to have an album debut at number one on the Billboard album charts, announced yesterday morning that he will be joining the classic rock band, Queen, for a North American tour this summer.  Lambert and original band members Brian May and Roger Taylor made the announcement during an appearance on Good Morning America.

Lambert’s unique vocal style and extraordinary range is thought to be reminiscent of the iconic Freddie Mercury, Queen’s frontman who died in 1991 of complications from AIDS.  John Deacon, the band’s original bassist who wrote many of the band’s hit songs including “Another One Bites the Dust”, has retired from music and will not be a part of the tour.

While the legendary band from Great Britain has appeared with Lambert on a number of occasions since first performing “We Are the Champions” together on American Idol’s season eight finale, the band has never toured with Lambert in North America.

“Come see us, it’s going to be amazing!” – Adam Lambert

  1. I do like this. I think a new generation of fans needs exposure to Queen’s music. Well done.

  2. Oh, you know I am in 🙂 Got my membership re-upped to Adam’s fan site and will be logging on Monday morning for the fan club pre-sale to hopefully get LA tickets. Having watched the live stream of the concerts in Kiev & London when they did a European set of dates in 2012, I can tell you that this is going to be fantastic. I’ve been crossing all digits in the hopes they would do a US tour. Adam honors Freddy so beautifully and not only has the vocal range, but also the front man charisma to command the stage with those legendary musicians.

    • I agree. I’ve enjoyed his appearances on GLEE this season, too. I think he looks as good as he sounds (but hope he doesn’t lose any more weight.) I hope you get the best tickets you can!
