Queen and Lambert first joined forces in 2009, when May and Taylor served as mentors on American Idol’s eighth season. Lambert, one of the competitors on the show, performed Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” on his audition for the show and ended up finishing second.
May and Taylor were impressed by Lambert and performed “We Are The Champions” with him at a later stage of the show.
Lambert then went on to launch his career, seeing some success. In November 2011, he performed with Queen again at the MTV Awards in Belfast.
In June 2012, Lambert and Queen performed a full concert together for the first time and he has since been performing with the band.
Concert goers can expect the American singer and the British band to perform Queen’s all-time greatest hits alongside some of Lambert’s songs.
