Rock icons Brian May and Roger Taylor have again joined American Idol star Adam Lambert for a 24 date concert tour of North America with the massive anthems and beloved ballads from Queen’s extensive catalogue.
This past weekend, the tour stopped in my home city of Las Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel’s concert venue The Joint. And “hard rock” they did.
Brian May had this to say about the tour:
“Let’s ROCK those beautiful arenas JUST ONE MORE TIME!”
“Of course, we’re taking (late singer) Freddie (Mercury’s) material, and it’s alive, it’s kicking, it’s not a fossil, and all the stuff we worked on together, it is still organically growing, and so I think to take Freddie’s material out on tour as well as our own is a great opportunity.”
“You know that Adam has a great respect for Freddie and I know if Freddie saw Adam perform he’d have a great respect for Adam too ’cause Adam has a matchless instrument and he’s a great performer so Freddie would absolutely be into it, I have no doubt.”
