Queen have been touring with Adam Lambert as their frontman for a few years now, but Brian May has teased that they might try to mix things up a little next year.
During an interview with BANG Showbiz recently, iconic guitarist Brian May explained that 2017 may bring something new:
"I think we'll do something different next year, I don't know what it will be. The Isle of Wight was great, it was fantastic, I loved it. It's kind of new and we're about to Asia and play Bangkok and Thailand and Singapore and these are all things we've never done. It's amazing at my age I'm still going to places that are new."
When asked if Queen have any plans to record original material with Adam Lambert, May added: "There's no plans at the moment [to make new Queen music]. People love to see us play live but I think people as a whole see Queen as an album land with Freddie so probably not."

Oh good!! Sounds like there are plans in the works for more QuAL 2017. I guess they are not finished with Adam yet, LOL.

I read that about that interview on Brian's website last'snew.html...(Wed. 21 Sept)-- so it must be legit.

Those guys have something "brewing", but I agree, Anne Marie, whatever it is, it definitely sounds like this tour won't be the end of their "collaboration".

WOW... exciting possibilities! My imagination is going crazy! A NEW BAND, maybe????? That would make the "recording with Adam" viable -- because it wouldn't be as Queen.

Start thinking of names... Q2?...Quadam?...King? ...Prince?(that's already been taken!). Oh My!

I doubt Brian and Roger, are going that different. The fans still want Queen with Adam, possibly some songs they haven't used yet. There could be a change with a couple of band members, who wanted to leave a couple of years ago, but never knowing this would continue so successfully, but they are not original Queen members. You know the saying, "if it ain't broke, then don't fix it". Would be great if Adam's next solo tour, included Roger and Brian. But I don't think that will ever happen. All Adam's fans and Queens fans would be going "Wut??" LOL

Would love to see another US tour but mixing in Adam's stuff like they did with Ghost Town! Oh and play Lucy of course!

Anne Marie -- You probably didn't realize that Brian composes for and plays with "Brian May and Kerry Ellis"---they tour together, and record music together. In fact they are giving 5 concerts in December 2016. She has a lovely voice, and they have even performed Queen music together in performances -- usually with a full orchestra also.

Roger had a band earlier -- but recently has been producing a movie, I believe.

So, it would not be farfetched IF they decided to perform/tour/record not as Queen, but with Adam on his own tour-- or a different joint tour under another name.

Anne Marie -- I can't make the link work here, but go to Youtube --- and type in "Brian May and Kerry Ellis". You'll see some of their performances there.
