Queen & Adam Lambert To Make Announcement Thursday

Queen and Adam Lambert are scheduled to make an announcement next week.

According to ABC Radio, the announcement will be made Thursday morning at New York City's famed Madison Square Garden.

“It's safe to assume that this will serve as a kickoff for some kind of concert event or series,” the outlet reported.

In an interview earlier this month with BBC Radio 2, Queen guitarist Brian May discussed upcoming plans for the band and hinted at a possible reunion with Lambert, who fronted for the British band in a series of highly successful European shows in 2012.

“We are ongoing, because we can't help it,” May said. “I think we all protested too much in the sense when Freddie [Mercury] went and we didn't want to talk about it and didn't want to be Queen for a while. But after a while you realize that people wanna hear the songs and see us do things. So, no matter what you call it, Roger [Taylor] and I do do stuff and I think we'll be doing some more stuff this summer in fact, probably in the States.”

“We've been talking to Adam Lambert,” May said of a possible frontman. “You know we've already done some gigs with Adam, who's amazing.”
