Adam Lambert will join Queen for their summer tour. The news has been confirmed, so it is official. This means that Adam will soon be seen on tour with the famous band.
Fans of Adam Lambert are surely extremely pleased to see their favorite singer on tour with the highly successful and famous band.
The first concert will take place on June 19 in Chicago, at the United Center. On July 20, the band already has scheduled a performance in Washington DC.
The fact that Queen even considered Adam Lambert as their frontman during their next tour was considered to be quite curious by many. However, it seems that the star is really appreciated by the members of the band.
“Adam is the most incredible frontman,” Taylor said in a recent interview with Rolling Stone. “He’s a great diva, and I mean that in the best possible way. We need that theatrically,” he explained. Maybe Adam is after all the perfect pick for Queen. May explained that Lambert is a good choice for the band, adding that they will pay tribute to Freddie Mercury in the show.
Adam Lambert has numerous fans, but there are many those who have criticized the star since his first appearances, too. However, Lambert always found the strength to not pay any attention to these comments. The singer said that he just focuses on his music and his career and after all everyone has an opinion and a comment.
This is not the first time when Adam will be seen performing with Queen. The first appearance of Queen with the singer dates back to 2009, when the talented young star was a contestant on American Idol. Following that performance, Lambert and Queen have met together on the stage several times.
It seems that they liked working together, as they also performed in this format during a European tour in 2012, as well as last year at iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas.
For Adam Lambert it is a great honor to be the frontman of Queen during its summer tour, but also a huge pressure. “At first it was a little daunting when we did our first incarnation of this. I definitely felt apprehensive. Freddie Mercury is one of the greatest singers that ever lived,” Adam Lambert said according to the Washington Post.
