Adam Lambert Discusses Queen’s Retirement Plans

Adam Lambert recently spoke to Metro.co.uk about the possibility of retirement plans of Queen. Considering Brian May and Roger Taylor’s age, there is a possibility that they may have retirement plans, but the singer, who has been performing with the band since 2011, signaled that this is not yet. He told:

“I know when I first performed with them, I thought it was probably going to be a one-off and then one thing led to another and it just snowballed and it became this beautiful relationship that we’ve continued over the past 10 or so years. And I’m delighted, I’m so excited to get back on the road in the States. And I don’t think that’s the end. I think there’s probably more where that came from.”

He was also asked about the possibility of touring the UK with Queen anytime soon. He replies with a short answer:

“Not that I’m necessarily aware of, but I know that it’s not out of the question. I mean, we just kind of keep going, don’t we?”

Though it seems like there is no certainty for now, the singer mentions one of their earlier tours and continues:

“Last summer was such a treat, we had a blast. It was a really beautiful tour, and we were very excited to get back on the road in front of the fans. And 10 sold-out shows at the O2 was a big milestone for me, personally. I’m so grateful for the journey that we’ve been on together.”

He will return to the road with Queen at the end of the year, and while other plans aren’t set in stone, he doubts it’s ‘the end’ for them.

Adam Lambert has had a successful solo career over the years. Along with his solo career, he has worked with Queen + Adam Lambert as lead vocalist, including multiple globe tours from 2014 until 2023. Live Around the World, their debut album, was released in October 2020 and debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart.
