Queen and Adam Lambert Promise Authentic Shows

(hennemusic) Queen and Adam Lambert announced a 19-date summer tour of North America on Thursday in New York, and now the group are sharing their thoughts on the upcoming trek, which begins June 19 in Chicago.

Queen have previously toured Europe with Lambert, the former American Idol contestant, and played the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas last fall, but the 2014 run will give many fans their first chance to see the band for the first time.

"We were very conscious of that in making this decision," guitarist Brian May tells Rolling Stone. "This is the closest that you'll ever get to see Queen as it was in our golden days, but it's not a reproduction. It's not an imitation. We're here live and real and we have a great singer. They'll be a lot of newness about this. I think that's very exciting. It'll be loud and dangerous and all the things that people used to look for in us."

"I think the thing that's really special is that this is the real deal. This is live," adds Lambert. "In today's music world, you go to a concert and you're getting a lot of playbacks. There's click tracks. It is what it is. I'm not hating on it. But this is the real deal. This is pure. We're not playing to a click. We're not playing to tracks. This is all live instruments. I'm singing all the vocals with these guys on vocals. It's purely organic. I think in today's day and age, it's very exciting for an audience to see something that has that much heart." more on this story
