This year marks the 50th anniversary of Queen’s final line up in Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon after the latter joined the band as bassist. No doubt there are all sorts of surprises for fans this year to celebrate a half-century of incredible rock. And the latest is something of a mystery teased by May and Taylor on their social media accounts.

The short video includes the text: “This year they will rock you on mobile. 1st March.”

While the footage intriguingly features CGI animated versions of the four Queen band members standing in their iconic Bohemian Rhapsody pose.

May wrote on his Instagram: “Eeek ! Fun and games !!! Bri.” While Taylor simply added: “Coming soon….”

Considering the tease involves 3D characters coming to mobile perhaps there’s a Queen mobile game app about to be announced?

While it’s certainly interesting that Queen will “rock you on mobile” in a year that not only marks the band’s 50th anniversary but one in which Queen and Adam Lambert’s tour has been postponed to summer 2022.

Whatever the case, Queen fans won’t have to wait long to find out considering that the reveal lands on Monday.

On the tour delay, May wrote earlier this month: “Yes – sadly we have to postpone again. Gutted.

“But we have rescheduled exactly a year later – and all tickets currently held will be valid – and – we’ve added extra dates !!! Yes … I know.”

May continued: “It’s not an outcome any of us wanted. But currently humanity is besieged – and the only weapons we have are purely defensive.”

The Queen guitarist then went on criticise the UK government for not going into the first lockdown last March sooner.

“It’s a humbling experience – especially if you are unlucky enough to have a Government that did not grasp the seriousness of the situation until it was way too late.

“To those of you in beautiful New Zealand – who are free to walk in the Sun, thanks to the wisdom of the great Jacinda – bless you ! Maybe some day we will be able to join you. But we have to be patient. Onwards ! Somehow It’s gonna be ALL RIGHT !!! Bri.”

While Queen drummer Taylor wrote: “When we do eventually get to play in front of live audiences it will be with a ferociously renewed attack….. We are disappointed but we WILL be back!”

And Lambert said: “It’s so disappointing to have to postpone again, but safety comes first!

“Roger Taylor, Brian May and myself look forward to spring 2022 when we will be back, better than ever!”

Queen and Adam Lambert’s UK and European tour will take place in May to June 2022, but will now kick-off in the UK with two shows at the AO Arena Manchester on May 30.
