Queen and Adam Lambert kicked off 2020 with a blast as they toured Asia and Oceania back in January and February. However, the band’s summer dates for the UK and Europe were sadly postponed to 2021 as the pandemic spread across the world. But now Brian May has shared a trailer for a big announcement concerning Queen and Adam Lambert coming this Friday.
May wrote on his Instagram: “Teaser! Bri.”
The mysterious short featured clips of Brian May, Roger Taylor and Adam Lambert backstage and performing at their concerts.
While the final frame said: “Announcement Coming.”
For UK fans it will land first thing on Friday, August 21 at midnight.
Meanwhile, Queen and Adam Lambert have been keeping themselves busy during lockdown.
Brian May has been sharing some micro-concerts through his social media, while Roger Taylor has given some mini-drum lessons.
The two remaining active Queen members then teamed up with Adam Lambert to remotely record a charity single in You Are The Champions.
Meanwhile, Taylor has also recorded a brand new solo single called Isolation, reflecting on the pandemic and living in lockdown.
On his calm and smooth track, which is out now on streaming, the Queen drummer reflected: “Time’s been slowing up and you have to fill your day literally.
“You sort of devise a routine.
“It’s a really odd situation that almost everyone has found themselves in unless, of course, you happen to be a frontline NHS worker in which case it would have been a right old worry.”
To record Isolation, Taylor headed back up to his house in the Surrey hills where he “stuck it down quickly” in his home studio.
