After hints that Queen would be again linking up with Adam Lambert Lambert, Brian May and Roger Taylor announced at a press conference today (March 6) that they’ll be heading on their first North American tour this summer. Lambert will be filling in for the late Freddie Mercury on the 19-date trek, which starts June 19 in Chicago and hits New York, L.A., Philly and a bunch of other cities in the US and Canada, finishing up July 20 at Maryland’s Merriweather Post Pavilion.

Lambert]first performed with the legendary British band on American Idol in 2009, then again in 2011 for the MTV EMAs, which was followed by a string of overseas dates in 2012. The only time the Lambert-fronted Queen has played a US concert was at last year’s iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas.

“I’m completely in awe of the Queen phenomenon,” said Lambert today. “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.”

    YES! Finally I have a chance to see Queen AND Adam and they are coming to Canada. I thought they might only stop in Vancouver and Toronto but they will be in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Montreal and Toronto. Our National Hockey League arena in Calgary converts very nicely into a rock venue and Calgarians will raise the roof I’m sure!
