Adam Lambert has opened up about where the future lies with Queen.

He has said he thinks the band will "just kind of keep on going".

Adam originally thought that joining the band for an MTV Europe Awards performance in 2011 was going to be a one-off.

The band have a US tour this year, and Adam said he doesn't think ‘that’s the end’ for them.

He originally performed with the band in 2009 as a contestant.

He was asked by Metro if there will be any UK tour dates on the horizon: "Not that I’m necessarily aware of, but I know that it’s not out of the question. I mean, we just kind of keep going, don’t we?"

"Last summer was such a treat, we had a blast. It was a really beautiful tour, and we were very excited to get back on the road in front of the fans. And 10 sold-out shows at the O2 was a big milestone for me, personally. I’m so grateful for the journey that we’ve been on together."

£I know when I first performed with them, I thought it was probably going to be a one-off and then one thing led to another and it just snowballed and it became this beautiful relationship that we’ve continued over the past 10 or so years. And I’m delighted, I’m so excited to get back on the road in the States."

He added: ‘And I don’t think that’s the end. I think there’s probably more where that came from.’

Away from Queen, Adam has contributed to a documentary called Mad About the Boy – The Noël Coward Story.

He has performed the title track.

He said previously: “There are people who like we shouldn't even be going on stage without Freddie. But I think that would have been very sad, and that's not what Freddie would have wanted either. He would have wanted us to continue developing. And of course, because we are continuing and developing, it keeps his legacy alive."

Brian May thinks that Freddie would have envied Adam's voice.

He said: “I've heard a billion voices in my life, and I've never heard a voice like Adam's. Time and time again, I can picture Freddie saying, 'You b******!' Because Adam's range is so ridiculous, isn't it?"

"And so often, I've found myself wishing that Freddie and Adam could have gotten together, because they would have had the greatest time. They're so similar in some ways, personally and musically."
