Queen announces new album

Latest update : 2008-03-20

Legendary English rock group Queen will release a new yet-to-be-named album in September, the first in 13 years. It will be followed by a new European tour starting in Moscow.

Legendary rock group Queen announced their first new album in 13 years on Wednesday, and also gave details of a European tour later this year.
   
The yet-to-be-named album will be released on September 1 and will feature Paul Rodgers, who joined the band as its frontman after Freddie Mercury's death in 1991, according to the band's web site.
   
Rodgers, Brian May and Roger Taylor have already recorded the album, which will be the first since "Made in Heaven" was released in 1995.
   
It is timed for release two weeks before the group's seven week tour through 14 European countries.
   
The tour will kick off in Moscow on September 16 and then move through Poland, Germany, Belgium, France, Italy, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Britain, Spain, Hungary, Serbia, the Czech Republic and Austria.
   
Notably, Queen's performance in Poland will be a free concert at the Gdansk Shipyard, the cradle of the 1980s Solidarity trade union movement.
   
Queen's web site said that a tour of Latin America would follow, but did not give details.
   
According to a spokesman for the group, John Deacon chose not to participate in the tour.
