Editors' pick

Queen with Adam Lambert

Rock
Please note: This event has already occurred.
A band that has long lacked a vocalist allies with a performer who, like a lot of "American Idol" contestants, didn't have much in the way of original material. Lambert first worked with Queen on "Idol" in 2009, performing "We Are the Champions," and subsequently did numerous one-off appearances with the group. But this summer's jaunt is the collaboration's first tour. Lambert gets to sing some of the 1970s' biggest hits, doing an uncanny Freddie Mercury impression while the real Brian May plays those classic guitar solos. There's no guarantee that Lambert and Queen will rock this way again; when the tour ends, the singer plans to work on a new solo album.
