Time Out says

Queen is heading back to Australia, with Adam Lambert taking up Freddie Mercury's vocals

With Bohemian Rhapsody the tenth highest grossing film of 2018, it's no surprise that there is still a huge appetite for Queen and their instantly recognisable music. The band have teamed up with American Idol winner Adam Lambert, who has been singing lead vocals since 2012, and they are touring Australia in February 2020. 

You can expect all of your Queen favourites, including 'We Will Rock You', 'Radio Ga Ga' and 'We Are the Champions'. 

Original Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor asked Lambert to perform with the band after they played a medley with six American Idol finalists in 2012 and were impressed with Lambert's vocal chops and spirit. May said of his sort-of new bandmate: "It's a worthy challenge for us, and I'm sure Adam would meet with Freddie's approval."

In the immortal words of Wayne Campbell: I thought we'd go for a little 'Bohemian Rhapsody', gentlemen?
