MANILA, Philippines – “Don’t stop me now,” Queen sings, and this lyric holds true, as 70’s British rock band Queen isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. They’re set to rock the Oscars stage on Sunday, February 24 (Monday, February 25, Philippine time).
Both The Academy and the band took to Twitter to confirm the news on Monday, February 18.
Queen is currently comprised of lead guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor, with ex-American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert as their lead vocalist for the Queen+ Adam Lambert tour.
