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.”

You are a liar: "Ooh them clever reporters takin my quotes outta context.... I haven't confirmed any quest appearances. I was talking about the EMA'S :)" - that is what Adam said and it was true

@Mikhail XO Some of them hate me no matter what I say. I say something nice, they say I'm pandering, I say something bad, they say I hate Adam. Can't win with some of these people. So I'm just being honest. He's no Freddie Mercury. Not even close.
I don't get why you hate on Adam Lambert so much, even if he did lie who cares? No one is trying to replace Freddie Mercury, but this is sure as hell a step up from Queen+Paul Rodgers tour. Just enjoy it for what it is and keep the real stories coming, I was too embarrassed to visit this site for a long time when the top always had Christina's tampon, or nude Scarlet pics. Don't sell out.
@rickey you are such an idot Rickey!
Oh little baby boy, don't cry. Is ok to feel jealous but no hates. please! PEACE :)
Btw, he didn't tell lies....he just kept his promises.
For sure, he's not the amazing Mr. Freddie Mercury cuz he's the one & only ~ Mr. Adam Lambert .
And thank you so much for sharing your article & thought. Nice catch :)
Sorry to be coy about the details the past few weeks, but I made a promise to keep it under wraps as best I could. Gonna be a surreal night!
@michellesk129@adamlambert No he didn't keep his promise because it LEAKED! Then he lied.
Whatever, that's your thought. IMO, you lied to your readers & to yourself too :). Its been almost 3 years & you still talking about him...enough say :). Thanks again Rickey & good day to everyone. Cheers :)
@fuckhead Oh sorry! My bad. Agree with you :)
@michellesk129 That was an inside joke to Rickey. Anyway Adam is an American Idol Runner Up. Period. No judgement. I liked Adam from day 1 of auditions. It's the Glamberts I.can.not.stand.
@fuckhead A very talented & worldwide runner up with recognition & appreciation from our legendary rock band Queen. Hmmm....is there any runner up who get this kind of huge honor from Queen? Please tell me if any, k! Thanks! Oh yes! May I know where is the "Winner" now? Peace people...PEACE :).
@rickey no shit sherlock. who ever said he was? get over your butthurt already - it's been 3 years.
