The threesome first shared the stage during American Idol in May 2009 for a performance of We Are The Champions. They teamed up again in 2011 at the MTV European Music Awards in Belfast, Ireland for an electrifying eight-minute finale of The Show Must Go On, We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions and in the summer of 2012, Lambert performed a series of shows with Queen across Europe as well as dates in Russia, Ukraine and Poland. They also performed three sold-out gigs at London’s Hammersmith Apollo.

“Let’s ROCK those beautiful arenas JUST ONE MORE TIME!” said Brian May. “I’m completely in awe of the Queen phenomenon,” added Lambert. “The thought of sharing the stage for a full set in North America is so beautifully surreal. I’m honored to be able to pay my respects to Freddie’s memory; he’s a personal hero of mine, and I am deeply grateful for the chance to sing such powerful music for fans of this legendary band. I know this tour will be a huge milestone for me, and with the support of Brian, Roger and the rest of the band, I feel like magic will be on display.”

  1. The retards at GMA referred to the former Queen singer EDDIE Mercury, Lambert said you mean FREDDY!
    The guy had a lost look on his face, didn’t even know that he messed up.
    This is why Eddie needs to interview Queen and Adam, those morning show guys are clueless. Anyways I’m going to see them in Houston 7/9.

    • It is often brutal when mainstream media tries to talk rock…

      • It’s painful to watch a rock star get interviewed on AM talk shows. The hosts try to be hip but just are not. Kelly Ripa seems to do okay, maybe because she grew up in the 80s. I remember when Regis Philbin called Motley Crue THE Motley Crue.

  2. Brandon says:

    Though Freddie was and is irreplaceable, it’s really nice to see Lambert with Queen. He is one of the few that I feel can do the songs justice. Paul Rodgers has absolutely earned his respect – Free and Bad Company were great bands – but he just never seemed quite the right fit. George Michael did an amazing job on Somebody To Love for the tribute concert. He’s another singer that could’ve carried the legacy.

  3. Next they’ll be referring to Freddy Van Halen. Morons…

  4. George Michael would have been amazing on a tour with the three.

    • I agree Lee.

      I never liked him when he was in Wham, but some of his solo stuff is actually pretty good. He is very talented.

      Dana from EddieTrunk.com :)

      • ….’and I’m never gonna dance again….guiltless feet I’ve got no rhythm….though it’s easy to pretend – I know your not a fool……
        Why the fuck do I know that?!!

      • He(George) was originally rumored to take over a year after Freddy’s death but John Deacon nixed that said it was too soon too move on and replace Freddy. I imagine that in part why he never came back. Freddy’s death affected him and how he see’s Queen/Music. May did say he spoke to Deacon about Adam and he approved of what they were doing.

  5. Was one of the job requirements “must be gay”?

    • Aww, that’s not nice. :( It shouldn’t matter what their sexual preference is when they have the pipes to back it up. Talent is talent.

      Dana from EddieTrunk.com :)

      • Dunno Frank. Is one of the requirements to post here ‘must be stupid’?

      • Frank just had a Howard Stern moment Dana. He simply said what many of us (not me….oh, no….not me….married with kids I am) might have been thinking. Actually, as a librarian….i am all in favor of halting the bastardization of the English language. Stop corrupting words and let their true meaning flourish!! :-)

        Frank, I hope you have a gay weekend

      • Adam has crazy pipes, Slash said when he performed with him he was blown away at his range and ease of hitting those notes. Roger Taylor said the reason they liked him was his voice and the right amount of humor and campy personality that they like in a front man.

        • Jim,

          I know he does. I am ashamed to admit that I watched his season of American Idol and I thought he was AMAZING. My idol is Rob Halford, so I really appreciate those clear, powerhouse voices as well as the raspy bluesy voice like David Coverdale or Ron Young.

          Dana :)

  6. It’s too bad John Deacon doesn’t want to play with them anymore, would be nice to see the 3 remaining members of Queen together.

    Yuck! How many bad decisions are Brian May and Roger Taylor going to make on behalf of their HALF of Queen?! First putting “We will rock you” on Broadway, which always waters down anything having to do with rock n’ roll to sell it to a mass-theater-going audience. Then touring with Paul Rodgers, who I love in Bad Company, etc, but never really “got it” that combo. Queen is OVER and has been for a long, long time. I honor of Freddie, just call it something else! Brian, you want to please the Queen fans who stayed loyal from the ’70s on?…then remaster and release the Earls Court and Hyde Park shows on DVD already. We all know they exist in their entirety because we’ve all seen the boots! Whew, I’m done.

    • I seen the Broadway Queen musical and it was really good. Great singers, great songs and funny.
      In the end was the music good and were you entertained? YES.
      I also seen RAIN a Beatles tribute that was incredible too. I’ve seen certain groups live in concert and was disappointed so it’s all a matter of opinion and did you get your money’s worth? May and Taylor Started Queen as Smile, but they call it QUEEN with Adam Lambert not QUEEN. Lambert is a Freak with his voice. Writing skills is up for discussion but I hope we get to see if it is up to par or not.

    • Yes! At least stop calling it Queen. Saw them with Lambert at summer olympic closing ceremony. It sucked and a disgrace to the original Queen and dye your hair Brian!

  8. Where’s John G? I figured this was right up his alley. Is he away this week? Can someone run down the hall and see if he’s at his desk?

    • Geez DR, sorry I didn’t comment on this. I’m out of the loop – haven’t heard Lambert sing. From all of the posts, it sound like he has the chops vocally. But let’s be honest, this is a giant money grab. Freddie Mercury wrote a good portion of their best stuff, though Brian May did a lot too. But they have a good chance to make a fortune.

  9. Michael shoulda been the choice even when Freddie was in bad shape. Glad I saw them back in ’80. Deacon where are you? Lambert is a strong singer.

  10. I laughed at this .. period Queen has really sunk to a low

  11. I don’t know why they never got George Michel. He could have taken that band in a new direction.
    Rip freddy …

  12. Compared to ’80 it is low but look at the fake Ace & Peter and compare….the real deal Kiss exists on planet earth and Queen can’t do that.

  13. scott whitaker says:

    It’s time to put Queen to rest.

  14. Paul Andriopoulos says:

    Cant believe Queen is tour.ing with Adam Lambert.What is next the Beatles with Justin Bieber

  15. Vince Neal singing for Quiet Riot, Sarzo & Carlos return. Blotz says Steve is out, maybe Mike Tramp with Ratt. The possibilities in ’14 are endless.

  16. I’ve been saying for a loooong time that Lambert was the guy to replace Freddie. George Michael did a great job back then, but I don’t think it would’ve been great in the long run. Adam is a bit like Freddie and yet his own, he is a bit like Freddie in that gayish kinda way, and can sing like not many can. I think it’s the right choice….

  17. Michael probably wanted equal share and passed, Lambert, equally a fine singer took the offer. Pearcy is getting way less than the 2 who own the name Ratt and is about to be canned in the greed move. $ dictates bands. Mercury would have loved Lambert as the singer, hope they add a Fall swing and stop the dinky The Joint Vegas stuff, they coulda sold out the MGM.
