Lady Gaga is “in talks” to tour with Queen as their singer, according to reports today (October 6).
According to Queen guitarist Brian May, who collaborated with the singer on her recent single ‘You & I’, Gaga is someone who the band have approached to front them in the future.
Speaking to the Daily Express, May said that the band talk about touring together all the time, but still have to recruit a singer after parting ways with Paul Rodgers in 2009.
Asked about the possibility of Queen playing live again, May said: “We talk about going out on the road all the time but there’s a bit of a singer problem, to put it mildly. We get a lot of offers to work with other people. I worked with Lady Gaga and she’s very creative and is someone we’ve talked about singing, fronting the band with. She’s not just a singer, she writes her own material.”
May also said that the band are looking into the possibility of doing duets with a series of artists, perhaps in a TV show format.
He added: “We have talked about doing duets with other people and in a strange way I almost pressed the yes button. We were debating the idea of a TV show where we have all these guest stars. We didn’t press it today but we are still looking at it. Lady Gaga has said she would like to do something with us.”
