QUEEN + Adam Lambert Announce Huge Summer Tour!

File this under things that need to happen more often: QUEEN + Adam Lambert have announced that they’re teaming up for a second summer tour together following the success of their first trek together a few years back. The run will hit 24 cities in North America and extend through August 5, hitting cities like Los Angeles, Toronto, Boston, New York, Washington, D.C., and Dallas.

Featuring drummer Roger Taylor and best-guitarist-on-earth Brian May and Adam Lambert filling the un-fillable shoes of the late Freddie Mercury, the group toured together back in 2014 and have played sold-out shows in Europe, Asia, Australia, Latin and North America since then. According to a release, this year’s tour will house a new show design, but fans can still expect to hear classic QUEEN tracks like Bohemian Rhapsody and Another One Bites the Dust.

Lambert first teamed up with May and Taylor in 2009 to perform “We Are the Champions” during the American Idol finale, where Lambert was a finalist and a noted Queen fan. (He performed “Bohemian Rhapsody” at his Idol audition.) Lambert joined May and Taylor again in 2011 for the EMAs’ tribute to late QUEEN frontman Freddie Mercury. There, they performed a medley of hits including The Show Must Go On, We Will Rock You, and We Are the Champions. They then performed a string of one-off shows before joining forces for a full-on tour in 2014.
