Legendary rockers Queen have reunited with Adam Lambert for a North American tour this summer.
“The American Idol” star has been playing with the band on and off since 2012, and he will now fill in for late frontman Freddie Mercury for a series of shows which kick off in Chicago, Illinois in June.
Lambert tells breakfast show “Good Morning America,” “To get to be on stage with these two amazing rock royalty members… Honestly, Queen is one of the quintessential rock bands of all time…They have influenced bands for years to come.”
Roger Taylor adds, “We feel that Adam is one of the few singers that actually can deliver our songs,” while Brian May interjects, “Probably the only singer that can deliver those songs.”
Lambert performed a series of shows with the band in the U.K. in 2012, while they have also performed together in Ukraine, Russia, Poland and at a music festival in Las Vegas in September.
