Obviously there is no replacing the greatest singer of all time in Freddie Mercury, but the remaining original members of Queen have felt for several years now that American Idol contestant Adam Lambert has the chops to do Freddie justice. The tour is presented by Live Nation.

Tickets go on sale on February 3 at 10 a.m. though members of Queen and Lambert's respective fan clubs can buy tickets beginning on Tuesday at 10 a.m. Queen and Adam Lambert fan club members can buy pre-sale tickets on January 31. VIP packages will also be available.

Queen + Adam Lambert last toured North America in 2014. Similar scenes greeted them on this return.

The North American tour comes to the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Conn., on July 23.

While Queen haven't united with Lambert in the recording studio, the rock legends performed the singer's solo single "Ghost Town" during their 2015 tour, transforming it from a dance-floor banger into a monstrous arena rocker. Not only did all 24 dates sell out nearly overnight but at the end Queen + Adam Lambert were awarded Band of the Year at the 10th annual Classic Rock Roll of Honor awards and were also voted Best Live Band of the Year in Ultimate Classic Rock's reader's poll.
