It could happen...
In an interview with Canoe, Queen's Roger Taylor hinted at more shows in the future with singer Adam Lambert. Here are highlights:
On the new Queen album with previously-unheard Freddie Mercury vocals: "It's not demos actually, it's actual material that we recorded. I got to admit I'd forgotten about most of it because, you know, you work on a different song everyday and then the ones that you don't end up actually developing, get forgotten. Some of it's very good actually. I'm quite surprised what they've come up. I think they're unheard songs. There's different things. It's all a bit of a mix at the moment and (Queen guitarist) Brian (May)'s working more on that than I am in the moment. I've been doing all this other stuff. But I will be getting together with him in the new year to finish what we've got there and then we're going to fashion some kind of album although the exact shape and form of it I'm not sure yet."
On the Michael Jackson collaboration songs: "It depends on the Michael Jackson estate getting themselves together. It's not the easiest thing I think - getting any feedback. But one of those tracks is in great shape and the other one just needs some work."
On continuing to tour and work with Adam Lambert: "It was a one-off but it went really fantastically well. He's really come on even more. He's a real dark force now. And he's very theatrical. And he really interprets our songs just brilliantly. And he has that incredible instrument, that voice and I feel he's going away from the pop thing which is good I think. And he's becoming a serious player. He's got a voice which is pretty unbeatable. I do think we will be working with Adam next year, yeah."
