For the first time in eight years Queen announced a North American Tour with Adam Lambert. As one of the quintessential rock bands of all times Queen will be kicking off their tour June 19th in Chicago at the United Center. They will be ending at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Washington DC on July 20th. They have the 18 city tour set to make 2 stops in Las Vegas, 7 Canadian stops and the remaining stop across the US. Tickets go on sale March 14th so get ready to be blow away.
Adam Lambert is set to replace the original front man Freddie Mercury with the champions of rock Queen for their newly announced tour. Freddie passed away in 1991 from AIDS complications and the band has never fully been able to replace him. Adam, Brian May and Roger Taylor made the announcement live on Good Morning America. Adam says that “this is a dream come true, to be able to bring these songs to life on stage” with “rock royalty members”. Not to worry Adam is not an imitator, they “all are going into new territory” according to Brian May. No set list has been decided on yet so it gives them time still to work out all the details for fans. View Queen & Adam Lambert tickets.
This is not the first time Queen and Adam have joined up. When Adam was a contestant on the reality show “American Idol”, Queen joined him for the Season 8 finale. Together they preformed the bands rock anthem “We Are The Champions”. Adam went on to finish in second place and help launch his music career. Adam has done several other appearances with Queen in the past few years.
Not only is will fans get to hear Adam’s entire newest album, but they get to hear the best combination of Queen and Adam together. Pulling from the timeless punk and rock mix to give you one great show, Adam has spread his wings form his debut album to give fans a whole new sound.
