Queen and Adam Lambert are set to announce their 2014 touring plans next week, at an event at New York's Madison Square Garden.

The iconic rockers and American Idol winner are expected to announce a string of US shows, with British fans hoping the band will bring their tour to the UK as well. The band have announced an undisclosed event at Madison Square Garden according to US sources, with more details promised to follow. A famous concert location, it is possible the band will perform live for guests.

The band had previously hinted at plans to tour again with Lambert, but now guitarist Brian May, has told Radio 2 that due to the band's 'ongoing' nature, the band will tour again, saying that a US summer tour is currently the most likely option.

"We've been talking to Adam Lambert, you know we've already done some gigs with Adam, who is amazing," said May in the interview.

"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," he added. "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."

Drummer Roger Taylor previously praised Lambert's time with the band in a 2013 interview with

"It was a one-off but it went really fantastically well," he said in December. "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 added: "He's got a voice which is pretty unbeatable. I do think we will be working with Adam next year, yeah."
