Fun. frontman, Nate Ruess might have been suffering from some vocal conditions last week which left him unavailable to perform at a festival with Mumford & Sons, but it looks like things are looking up just in time for the singer.
It was reported that the “We Are Young” crooner and the rest of his band, will be appearing with classic rock icons, Queen, during the iHeartRadio Music Festival tomorrow. The show, which has now become an annual event with some of the biggest artists in music taking to the stage will take place at MGM Grand Garden Arena, will be taking over Las Vegas for the next two days.
Billboard reported that an inside source had seen Ruess rehearsing with Brian May and Roger Taylor on some tracks including “Somebody to Love” and “Fat Bottomed Girls” this past Tuesday, September 17.
Ruess isn’t the only musician that has joined Queen in the past; one of the most famous musicians to have joined the band is former American Idol contestant Adam Lambert. For quite sometime, the former reality TV show contestant had been filling the frontman position and will be resurrecting that role during Queen’s performance at the music festival.
The festival is slated to start tomorrow and for the first time ever, will feature a Fan Village officially named the iHeartRadio Music Festival Village which will include performances by Miley Cyrus, Avril Lavigne, AWOLNATION, Pete Tong, Twenty One Pilots and Jason Derulo.
Friday’s performers on the main stage will include Katy Perry, Elton John, Keith Urban, J. Cole, Muse, Tiesto, Chris Brown and Benny Benassi while Saturday’s line up will feature Paul McCartney, Justin Timberlake, Drake, Miley Cyrus, Tim McGraw and Bruno Mars and many more.
Who else is looking forward to Fun. and Queen maybe performing “We Are Young” together?
