Adam Lambert to Join Queen in Four Concerts to Make Up for Sonisphere Cancellation


Adam Lambert to Join Queen in Four Concerts to Make Up for Sonisphere Cancellation
At one of the makeup dates for the canceled music festival, Lambert and Roger Taylor's band are set to perform with Elton John in Kiev, Ukraine.


Though Sonisphere Festival where Adam Lambert was supposed to share stage with Queen on July 7 was canceled, fans have no need to worry because alternatives are already set up by the two music acts. Four concerts which will reunite them after their gig at the 2011 MTV EMAs have just been confirmed.

One is set at Moscow's Olympic Arena on June 30. Announced in March this year following positive response for their then-Sonisphere gig, the concert is still on although the Knebworth Park music festival was scrapped. They will also play together with Elton John in Kiev and do two other shows at the Hammersmith Apollo in early July.

Roger Taylor told Billboard they try to provide "some alternative... for some of the people who had bought tickets" for the canceled Sonisphere. "We're really excited about it," he gushed. "Adam... of course he has this unbelievable range, like Freddie (Mercury) had range. Adam can really cover it. He's an extraordinary singer and a real talent. I feel he fits into our sort of theatricality."

Talking about what they have to offer in the upcoming concerts, Taylor played it coy. He, however, spilled that he and Brian May were approached to be part of the Summer Olympics closing ceremonies in London. "I don't think we're meant to say too much about it yet," he said. "We're just going to see what happens."

Lambert himself hasn't commented about the so-called makeup dates for the Sonisphere, but he did assure his fans that a collaboration with Queen would be arranged for a future gig. "While I'm sad that the Sonisphere festival has been cancelled, I'm hopeful that Queen and I will share a stage again someday in the future," he tweeted.

Aside from mapping the four concerts with Lambert, Queen will embark on a tour across North America starting May until July. "[It] will not be like a traditional tribute show," Taylor said. "It's going to be very spectacular, it's going to be very visual, there are going to be some shocks and some tremendous surprises. It will be a rock celebration in the Royal tradition."
