Legendary Queen band members Roger Taylor and Brian May joined former American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert on Good Morning America today for a HUGE announcement. Adam will be joining Queen this summer for a 19-date North American tour starting on June 19!
Adam Lambert has previously served as a guest front-man for Queen on tour dates in Europe and at the iHeart Music Festival last year. Although no one could truly fill the late Freddie Mercury’s shoes, Adam has proven repeatedly that he is worthy of standing in that great man’s shadow on stage with Queen.
“To get to be onstage with these two rock royalty members…honestly, Queen is the quintessential rock band of all time…they’ve influenced bands for years,” Adam told Good Morning America. He said that being able to bring Queen songs to life on stage with Roger Taylor and Brian May is a dream come true.
Tickets for the Adam Lambert Queen tour will go on sale through LiveNation.com on Friday, March 14.
