(RADIO.COM) – In recent years, Adam Lambert has proved a trusty stand-in for Freddie Mercury: He first performed with Queen as an American Idol contestant in 2009, followed by a brief 2012 tour, and the collaboration made its live American debut in 2013. In 2014, they took their partnership global with a world tour and plenty of other appearances as Queen + Adam Lambert.
Last year, they headlined and played more than a dozen festivals and events together around the world…so it’s safe to call Lambert part of the Queen family now.
Queen + Adam Lambert are set for another tour in 2017. The concerts kick off June 23 in Phoenix, Arizona, making its way to the SAP Center in San Jose on the 29th and features a combination of U.S. and Canadian dates. Their tour wraps up in Houston, TX, on August 5. If all continues to go well, perhaps we’ll hear new studio material featuring Lambert (which hasn’t happened yet).
