Adam Lambert and Queen to Make Joint Announcement Next Week 

QueenOnline.comOver the past few years, Adam Lambert has performed with the legendary British rock group Queen on a number of occasions, both in the U.S. and overseas, but he and the group have never actually toured in the U.S.  Now, though, it appears that some live shows might be in the works stateside.

Adam and Queen have announced a press event for next Thursday morning at New York City's famed Madison Square Garden, with a promise of more details to follow.  It's safe to assume that this will serve as a kickoff for some kind of concert event.

When he performs with Queen, Adam stands in for the band's founding lead singer, Freddie Mercury, who died in 1991 of an AIDS-related illness.  In the summer of 2012, he and the band performed six shows in Europe, and this past fall, they also performed at a multi-artist show in Las Vegas.

Adam and Queen first teamed up in 2009.  The occasion was a performance on the American Idol season-eight finale where Adam faced off against Kris Allen and lost.
