Ruess was spotted at the MGM Grand Garden Arena rehearsing the songs “Somebody To Love” and “Fat Bottomed Girls” with Queen, which consists of drummer Roger Taylor, guitarist Brian May and current guest vocalist Adam Lambert.
Queen is on the bill for Friday night at the festival, along with fun. It is not clear how many songs the two acts will perform together.
The evening’s lineup will also include sets from Muse, Katy Perry, Elton John, Keith Urban and others, while Saturday’s artists include Paul McCartney, Justin Timberlake, Drake, Miley Cyrusand Bruno Mars, among others.
