Queen have announced that they will be embarking on a new US tour that is due to begin in Chicago on the 19th of June and will finish in Washington on the 20th of July.
The tour will consist of no less than nineteen dates and will be featuring Adam Lambert as lead vocalist. Adam Lambert has said:
“I’m completely in awe of the Queen phenomenon. 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.”
