Brian May Says Queen Will Never Die And Gives An Update On Their Future Plans
Queen lead guitarist Brian May shared footage from his interview with ITV London News on his official Instagram account. He stated that Queen will always continue to produce and perform and revealed the band’s plan for the following year.
As you probably know, Queen’s lead singer Freddie Mercury passed away on November 24, 1991, due to bronchial pneumonia caused by AIDS. After his death, the band released their fifteenth and last album entitled ‘Made in Heaven’ on November 6, 1995. The remaining members, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon, completed the album by using Mercury’s old recordings.
Then, the Queen members decided not to produce any other materials, but Taylor and May continued their tours under Queen+, and then Adam Lambert joined them as the lead vocalist. Queen+Adam Lambert hasn’t released any studio records yet, but Queen fans are happy with their stage performances. Their latest tour, named The Rhapsody Tour, started on July 10, 2019, and will end on July 25, 2022.
In addition, Brian May confirmed that the band will restart their tour in May 2022, and he has started preparing for their upcoming live performance. He added that Queen will never die because the band still has a dedicated fan base who wants them to produce Queen classics’ reissues and new records and continue their stage performances.
Here’s what May wrote on his IG post:
“Thank you, Duncan and ITV London News!
Introducing Back to the Light – the CD single, the Vinyl 7 inch Single, and the Time Traveller video film.”
In May’s words, he said:
“We’re. Lots of things happening behind the scenes. Queen never dies! Thank you. I feel thankful for that. It never sleeps either. We’re always doing something, mixing stuff, at the studio in which I did all of the stuff. We did a lot of work on the last Queen album, ‘Made in Heaven’ album.
Things always are going on. We remix, polish, and repackage because it’s constantly demanded. Thank you to the people out there who wanna see some old materials brought up to scratch in the modern media. We’ll be keeping busy, and I’m working on my fitness because next May, we will be out back on the road, hopefully.”
As a result, Queen icon Brian May knows that their fans will never leave them. Thus, both he and Roger Taylor will keep on working and performing for them. He reflected his gratitude for Queen fans’ never-ending admiration and dedication to them.
