Adam Lambert to Join Queen for North American Tour!
Singer Adam Lambert, who gained fame when he appeared on "American Idol," will join the classic rock band, Queen, in a North American tour this summer, Lambert and original band members Brian May and Roger Taylor announced today in an appearance on "Good Morning America." Watch the announcement here!
"Queen is one of the quintessential rock bands of all time...they've influenced bands for years to come," Lambert said today in a live appearance on "GMA," adding that it's a dream come true "to be able to bring these songs to life on stage" with "rock royalty members."
The legendary British band has performed with Lambert on a number of occasions in recent years, both in the U.S. and overseas, but the band has never actually toured with the former "American Idol" finalist in North America.
Queen first teamed up with Lambert in 2009 to perform the band's rock anthem "We Are the Champions" on "Idol's" season's eight finale. Kris Allen won that season, and Lambert was the runner-up.
Lambert and Queen teamed up again in 2011 at the MTV European Music Awards in Belfast, and in the summer of 2012 they performed across Europe, as well as in Russia, Ukraine and Poland. They also had three sold-out shows at London's Hammersmith Apollo.
