As we recently reported here on TGD, it was rumored that Adam Lambert would be singing for Queen, and doing a concert tour with the band. Now that has officially come to pass, and he’ll be singing with the band this summer.
When Freddie Mercury tragically passed away, the band was finally starting to have a comeback in the States, and it would have been great to see them make one more go round with the legendary singer. Queen always swore they would never tour America again unless they were on top; they had to be able to play arenas, but their audience had dwindled in the eighties stateside. (They still remained a big stadium draw in Europe.)
Now Queen guitarist Brian May says, “Let’s rock those beautiful arenas just one more time.”
