Brian May Joins Roger Taylor To Perform Queen Songs But Adam Lambert Isn’t Spotted On Stage
Queen’s lead guitarist Brian May recently joined his bandmate Roger Taylor for the last concert from his ‘Outsider Tour,’ and the duo performed two of their band’s tracks together, ‘Tutti Frutti,’ and ‘A Kind of Magic. While they performed better than ever with high energy on stage, fans were questioning to see the absence of their lead singer, Adam Lambert.
As many of you might know, Roger Taylor released his sixth solo studio album named ‘Outsider‘ on October 1, 2021. The COVID-19 lockdowns inspired record received generally favorable reviews both from music critics and fans as well as peaking at number 3 on UK Albums Chart.
Right after he put out his album, the Queen drummer embarked on a 14-date solo tour named ‘Outsider Tour’ in the United Kingdom on October 2. After a series of successful concerts, Taylor had a big surprise for his audience on the last show of the entire tour on October 22, he was joined by his bandmate Brian May.
Earlier on that day, Brian May shared a post on his official Instagram page revealing a video on which he shows a stage and the Queen song ‘Radio Gaga’ is heard. In the caption section, the guitarist humorously said that looks and sounds familiar to him in addition to foreshadowing that he’ll be seeing them later that night.
In his IG post, May captioned:
“On the day of the release of my new single … where am I? This all looks (and sounds) strangely familiar. Might see some of you guys later, then!!”
Since fans knew Roger Taylor will be performing his final concert of the entire ‘Outsider Tour,’ they immediately understood that he is going to be joined by Brian May on stage. That’s exactly what happened and the two played two of Queen’s songs, ‘Tutti Frutti,’ and ‘A Kind of Magic‘ at Shepherds Bush Empire.
While the duo proved why they are such a power couple in the music industry as the energy in their performance was incredible, why Adam Lambert didn’t join his bandmates is still a matter of curiosity. Although it was Taylor who was singing during the shows in his tour, Lambert could easily have taken the co-lead singer duties. It appears that fans have to wait and see if the trio is still on good terms.
