Queen are expected to play gigs in America this summer with Adam Lambert.

Drummer Brian May has revealed the band - which also features Roger Taylor - are still working together and planning to perform with Adam Lambert replacing the late Freddie Mercury as frontman.

Brian told BBC Radio 2: "We are ongoing, we can't help it, I think we all protested too much in the sense when Freddie went and we didn't want to talk about it and didn't want to be Queen for a while.

"But after a while you realise that people wanna hear the songs and see us do things. So, no matter what you call it, Roger and I do do stuff and I think we'll be doing some more stuff this summer in fact, probably in the States."

When quizzed about who will stand in as a frontman for the band, the 66-year-old musician said: "We've been talking to Adam Lambert, you know we've already done some gigs with Adam, who is amazing."

Brian and Roger have joined forces with 32-year-old Adam, who was the runner-up on American Idol in 2009, for a number of concerts in the past.

The band are also still "good friends" with Paul Rodgers, who they formed a supergroup with in 2005, but Brian said it was unlikely they would work together anytime soon.

He added: "Paul has a career of his own and he can't do the Queen thing indefinitely."
