Queen and Adam Lambert announced an expansive summer tour that will take the group across the country.
Queen and Adam Lambert wrapped their most recent trek last September, a 15-date jaunt that included shows throughout Europe and Asia.
The Queen/Lambert collaboration began in 2009 with a performance on the eighth season of American Idol, when guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor teamed up with Lambert, then a contestant on the singing competition. The trio subsequently performed together at the MTV Europe Awards in Belfast in 2011, followed by a joint concert with Elton John the next year in Kiev.
After a mini-tour in 2012 and a headlining performance at Las Vegas’ iHeartRadio Music Festival the following year, the revamped Queen launched a series of full-scale tours over the next three years. Since 2011, the band has been supported onstage by keyboardist Spike Edney, bassist Neil Fairclough and percussionist/Taylor’s son, Rufus Tiger Taylor.
While Queen haven’t united with Adam Lambert in the recording studio, the rock legends performed the singer’s solo single “Ghost Town” during their 2015 tour, transforming it from a dance-floor banger into a monstrous arena rocker. The supergroup released the concert LP Live in Japan last year.
In 2014, Queen released the compilation Queen Forever, which features previously unreleased tracks with vocalist Freddie Mercury and bassist John Deacon. It also includes “There Must Be More to Life Than This,” a duet between Mercury and Michael Jackson.
