Queen star Brian May has credited the band’s new frontman Adam Lambert with reinvigorating himself and Roger Taylor on tour.
The guitarist suggested the Lambert experiment might be Queen’s last hurrah just before he stepped in to sing the songs the late Freddie Mercury performed live, but now May believes the band has a future – and it’s all thanks to the flamboyant former “American Idol” star.
May tells VH1, “There’s a big call to do more shows now, so, there’s a good possibility that we will do more shows. I think, beyond that, we’ll just see.
“I feel so fortunate to be going out there. I never thought it would happen again. When Freddie went, I thought, ‘That’s it. We did that. It was a great life. Now, it’s time to have a different life’, and for years, we didn’t try to be Queen in any way.
“I think he’s (Lambert) woken us up.”
Queen’s tour with Adam Lambert began in North America earlier this summer. The band will kick start an Asian tour in Seoul, South Korea on Thursday night before hitting arenas in Australia and New Zealand.
