Queen's drummer Roger Taylor says Adam Lambert is one of the greatest singers on the planet.

The band are about to head off on tour in North America with 23 dates.

Speaking about their singer ahead of the tour, Roger said: “Adam is certainly a real force on stage.

“It’s been nothing but a riotously funny and enjoyable journey with him. He is simply one of the best vocalists in the world – FACT!”

Adam returned the favour, saying: “I consider it a beautiful twist of fate that I was put on a path that aligned me with Brian and Roger.

“I can’t wait to tour North America one more time alongside the two unbelievably talented legends that are Brian May and Roger Taylor.”

Brian May said in a recent interview that this US tour may be their last lengthy overseas tour.

“I don't know how long my legs will deal with what I have to do out there, and the hands too. You get problems as you get older, which you don't really want to talk about, but it makes doing what you do that bit harder every time,” Brian said.

“I don’t want people to be thinking about that when they see me doing my stuff because I will be over it – adrenaline will take over and I’ll be able to handle it. But there will come a day when we can't, it ain't gonna work. For the time being, if we can do it we do it.”

“To be truthful, this next tour will be two months away from home and it’s impossible to get back from the States. And as I get older that’s harder and harder to do. There’s too much stuff that I want to be in contact with at home.

“I'm thinking maybe it (the next US tour) will be the last time I want to be away from home for such a long time, cos I don't know how much time I have left. I would probably prefer to do it in shorter stabs (of time).”
