More Adam Lambert news… earlier today we reported that his new music video for the single, “Better Than I Know Myself” was out, and now we have heard that Adam will be going on tour with the iconic band, Queen. Trent reported on this in Les News today and now we have more of the story…Comparisons have often been made between Adam and the legend, Freddie Mercury. Adam himself made comments during his time on American Idol that Queen and Freddie were his musical inspiration growing up, and his owl idol. Read on to find out more about the tour plans, and whether Adam feels he could ever replace Freddie.
There are a lot of style, identity and musical differences between Adam and Freddie, no one would deny that. However, Adam himself has admitted that Queen was his biggest influence, so this must be a dream come true for him to play their music, with them! MTV reported that Adam will be touring Europe over the summer with the band alongside the remaining members, and will be including a performance in Knebworth in England, where Queen played their final show with Freddie Mercury in 1986, five years before he died.
“There’s no intention in my mind of replacing Freddie,” Lambert told the Daily Star. “That’s impossible. The intention is to pay tribute to Freddie and the band by singing some f*****g great songs. It’s to keep the music alive for the fans and give it an energy that Freddie would have been proud of.”
I haven’t heard about them touring the U.S but I suppose they probably will at some stage, which would be amazing! Would you go see Adam Lambert with Queen?
