Queen’s lead guitarist Brian May shared a video clip consisted of footage from Queen + Adam Lambert tours around the world on his official Instagram page and expressed his longing for performing and meeting with his fans after a long break due to COVID-19.
As we all know, due to precautions, restrictions, and lockdowns to keep us safe from coronavirus, the music industry has faced a long pause. While music is still very much alive online with visual concerts and live streaming shows, live performances with an audience don’t seem to be possible in the near future.
Because of the current environment, bands and musicians canceled their live shows and tours without the promise of a new schedule. Most of them planning to be back in 2021 since now that vaccines are looking promising, however, both musicians and fans are still waiting for an unknown period of time.
As many of you know, Queen has been performing live shows and touring with Adam Lambert since 2012 when Lambert joined the band as a more permanent member. On December 3, 2018, Queen + Adam Lambert announced a North American tour taking place from July to August 2019, called ‘The Rhapsody Tour’ which later expanded into a world tour. However, on March 31, 2020, they confirmed that their touring dates planned for the year were postponed until 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Brian May recently shared a post on his official Instagram revealing special footage of their fans while Queen + Adam Lambert was performing during their tour. May expressed his longing for his fans and performing for them on stage while stating that he hopes he will meet with his fans in 2021.
Here is what Brian May wrote in the caption of his post:
“Have to admit – this brings a bit of a lump to my throat. Fingers all crossed that in 2021 we will meet again. Stay safe, folks. And … yes – thanks from me. Bri”
