Adam Lambert to front Queen at Sonisphere Festival 2012
Queen will be performing at the Sonisphere Festival on July 7 in the UK with American Idol runner up Adam Lambert as their lead singer.
You know what pisses me off about this? Adam Lambert took the time to call a reporter a liar for breaking the news about this a couple of weeks ago after interviewing him. And now this news comes out that it was true all along.
What kind of person does this? He should just shut his mouth and not blame others for his failure to keep things under wraps.
And besides, he’s no Freddie Mercury. Not. Even. Close.
With a quarter of a century having since passed, rock legends QUEEN are to return to play a second concert at the venue that provided them with the setting for one of their biggest and most historic concerts.
QUEEN’s Brian May and Roger Taylor have confirmed the band will headline the second day of SONISPHERE appearing on the APOLLO stage on Saturday July 7. KNEBWORTH was the setting for QUEEN’s final concert with Freddie Mercury in August 1986.
May and Taylor also confirmed that for this very special event they will be joined by US singer-songwriter ADAM LAMBERT.
The potent chemistry between QUEEN and Lambert broke the surface when at the invitation of Brian May and Roger Taylor, Lambert joined them for the closing showcase at the recent MTV Europe Awards where QUEEN were present to collect their Global Icon award.
Says Brian May: “Judging by my incoming mail, this decision will make a lot of people very happy. It’s a worthy challenge for us, and I’m sure Adam would meet with Freddie’s approval! And what better place to revisit, and walk those emotional paths than Knebworth? It will be a rush.”
