Adam Lambert will perform with Queen this summer!
When rumors about a potential collabo between Adam Lambert and the infamous U.K. band Queen started bubbling up on the internet, we couldn’t imagine a better fit — um, have you heard Adam sing? While no one on the planet can actually replace the band’s iconic lead singer Freddie Mercury, we could totally appreciate the “American Idol” alum honoring Mercury’s powerhouse pipes with his own brand of dramatic flair. Guess what, guys: He’s actually going to. Adam will hit the stage with Queen this July in England!

The “Better Than I Know Myself” singer took to his Twitter to officiate the announcement: “As many suspected, I can finally confirm: I have been invited by Queen to sing one very special concert! Sonisphere at Knebworth July 7th!” The singer also added: “Sorry to be coy about the details the past few weeks, but I made a promise to keep it under wraps as best I could. Gonna be a surreal night!”
We’re kind of thinking “surreal” is a total understatement — the fact that dude gets to lend his pipes to the people who created a rock relic like “Bohemian Rhapsody” is a DREAM COME TRUE! With Adam’s upcoming summer event OF A LIFETIME and the March 20 release of his sophomore album, Trespassing, we pretty much plan on rocking guy-liner in his honor all year long.
