Queen + Adam Lambert received glowing reviews for their performance together at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas last September, prompting Lambert, Roger Taylor and Brian May to take the show on the road. The threesome first shared the stage during American Idol in May 2009 for a performance of “We Are The Champions.” They teamed up again in 2011 at the MTV European Music Awards in Belfast, Ireland for an electrifying eight-minute finale. In 2012, Lambert performed with Queen across Europe as well as dates in Russia, Ukraine and Poland. They also performed three sold-out gigs at London’s Hammersmith Apollo.
"Let’s ROCK those beautiful arenas JUST ONE MORE TIME!” said Brian May.
“I’m completely in awe of the Queen phenomenon,” added Lambert. “I’m honored to be able to pay my respects to Freddie’s memory; he’s a personal hero of mine, and I am deeply grateful for the chance to sing such powerful music for fans of this legendary band.”
In a career spanning over 40 years, Queen – Brian May, Freddie Mercury, Roger Taylor and John Deacon – amassed a staggering list of sales, awards, and hall of fame inductions that is second to none. Record sales in the hundreds of millions of units put Queen in the Top 10 of all-time iTunes sales, seven Ivor Novello Awards, an MTV Global Icon Award, two songs enshrined in the Grammy Hall of Fame - “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions.” And, just last month Queen became the first artist ever to sell over six million copies of an album in the UK with their “Greatest Hits” album. Despite the tragic loss of Mercury, Queen remain one of the most revered bands in rock and pop history. Their musical We Will Rock You, co-created with writer Ben Elton, is approaching its 12th year on stage in London’s West End and is currently touring North America.
Lambert’s performances on the eighth season of American Idol are considered among the most riveting in the show’s history. His debut album, For Your Entertainment, earned him a Grammy Award nomination for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. His second album, Trespassing, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts. Lambert, who guest starred on the hit TV series, Glee, is currently writing and recording for his third album, slated to be released this year.
