#SPOTTED: QUEEN + ADAM LAMBERT IN TORONTO FOR THE “ONCE IN A LIFETIME TOUR”
300-million-Album-selling British Rock Outfit QUEEN may have been quiet for some time, but in former American Idol Finalist Adam Lambert they appear for now to have found the one Frontman worth of carrying the legacy of their brand established by beloved Freddie Mercury.
Original Members Brian May (Guitars) and Roger Taylor (Drums), combined with some new members including Taylor’s Son Rufus, currently are on tour with Frontman Lambert and stopped-off this weekend in Toronto. Just earlier this month they played a Show at Air Canada Centre before demand led them to add an additional Show.
The Tour, titled Once in a Lifetime, puts first and foremost a 22+ song Collection of the Band’s greatest Hits. Although the Tour, which heads to Australia later this year, features Lambert, the Band has expressed a willingness to work with him on a more permanent basis including recording new material together.
Taylor was spotted out in Yorkville earlier today lunching with his Bodyguard and Daughter Lola Daisy May. Although his Handler was careful to guard his private time, he was nice enough to make an exception to take one quick Photo after asking me what it was I wanted. Bandmate May was also in the area, although Fans looking to get close didn’t have as much luck.
Meanwhile, Lambert was spotted at local Gay Bar Woody‘s downing shots last night, a reliable Source tells me. Fans hoping to get a glimpse of the temporary Frontman weren’t so fortunate today as he scooted into his SUV with sunglasses on, although I did manage to get semi-snap through his windshield. We had the pleasure of meeting him a couple years back. More on that here.
