Upon officially announcing North American summer tour with singer Adam Lambert, Queen have noted that recording a studio record with Adam is now also a possibility.
"I think anything is a possibility," Brian May told Nick Carter during a recent press conference. "That's the way things do sometimes happen, I wouldn't rule it out," drummer Roger Taylor chipped in.
As far as the tour goes, May announced an "adventurous, dangerous" approach, adding that the band will be using "no backing tapes, ProTools or clicks. We just play together and it's great, it's glorious," the guitarist said.
During a separate Rolling Stone chat, May insisted that the group's current lineup is the closest thing to Queen's finest hour. "We were very conscious of that in making this decision," he said.
"This is the closest that you'll ever get to see Queen as it was in our golden days, but it's not a reproduction. It's not an imitation. We're here live and real and we have a great singer," the guitarist continued. "They'll be a lot of newness about this. I think that's very exciting. It'll be loud and dangerous and all the things that people used to look for in us."
As for the upcoming summer trek, the North American arena tour will kick off on June 19 in Chicago, Illinois and take the band across 18 cities. Tickets will go on sale March 14, more info here, make sure to check out the full itinerary below.
