Adam Lambert and Queen team for summer tour

Queen is by many accounts one of the greatest rock bands of all time. The lead singer of the group was the late Freddie Mercury and with Mercury at the microphone, Queen made some of the all time favorite rock songs of the last few decades.

Queen still tours even though Mercury has passed and the band is without a permanent lead singer. Last year Queen teamed up with Adam Lambert of American Idol fame for a concert and by all accounts, Lambert did very well at filling the boots of Freddie Mercury.

Lambert and Queen will team for a tour in the US starting on June 19 in Chicago and running through July 20. Tickets for the concert will go on sale on March 14 via Livenation.com according to a press release published on PR Newswire.

Rolling Stone said of the concert last year, "Lambert astounded the audience on songs like 'We Will Rock You' and the closing 'We Are The Champions' and 'Crazy Little Thing Called Love'. It was the most anticipated act of the night." Billboard claimed, "…Queen effectively stole the show, with timeless songs that music fans of all genres can sing along to" and the Hollywood Reporter exclaimed, "Adam Lambert, Queen bring down the iHeart house. With the perfect mix of rock attitude mixed with style, theatricality, sex appeal and impressive vocal gymnastics, [Lambert] took the band's music to new heights."

This isn't the first time Lambert has filled Mercury's shoes for a Queen concert. The first was on the set of American Idol.

"Let's ROCK those beautiful arenas JUST ONE MORE TIME!" said Brian May.

"I'm completely in awe of the Queen phenomenon," added Lambert. "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."
