The 'Better Than I Know Myself' singer says that after their collaboration at the EMAs, 'it just seemed to be the right thing to continue.'
Adam Lambert is excited about his upcoming gig with his idol, Queen. At the 20th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party, the singer remembered how he reacted when he got a call from his manager about the offer.
"My manager called, 'this is something you want to do?' and I was like 'of course!'," he opened up to a reporter at the City of West Hollywood Park. "We did the EMAs together, the European Music Awards for MTV, and after that it just seemed to be the right thing to continue."
Lambert is going to perform with Brian May and friends at Sonisphere festival at Knebworth on July 7. "I'm looking forward to it," he gushed about the summer gig. "I got a lot of work to do, learn all their music but I'm excited."
In a previous statement, he said, "The thought of sharing the stage for a full set is so beautifully surreal. 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."
