As you may recall, last year Presidential candidate Donald Trump used Queen's iconic anthem "We Are The Champions" during the Republican convention, much to the dismay of many Queen fans, and without permission from Queen itself.

In this brief snippet of a NEW interview with ET Canada, Dr. Brian May, Roger Taylor, and Adam Lambert are being interviewed regarding their upcoming Queen + Adam Lambert North America Tour this summer (2017), and were asked again about the incident. Listen in to the convo via the video embedded in the tweet below.

The ET Canada article from 2016 regarding the WATC incident LINK: "Queen Vs. Trump: Rockers Say Candidate’s Use Of ‘We Are The Champions’ At Convention Was ‘Against Our Wishes’" , with Dr. Brian May's response at the time, is also linked in the tweet.

Just watched QAL on Entertainment Tonight a few minutes ago. They had a nice lengthy segment. Started with a question about the Freddie Mercury film coming out. Then had good clips of QAL performing and some nice mention of Adam alone. Loved the segment. We see Adam on TV so seldom. Hope we see more of him during the tour. PRAYING that we get tour from A4.

I got to see it on my tv, too. It was a decent time slot. They even did a small 'coming up' announcement. Not sure why they mentioned KA and Adam coming in 2nd. A bit of irony maybe?

Oh and I like Roger calling their collaboration 'a resurrection'. That was original and cool. Anyway I'd not heard that before.

I missed it, but an glad Adam got some air time with Queen. It's been awhile since he's had some US TV exposure. I have so much respect for Brian May & Roger Taylor, really fine gentlemen
