Band schedule their fifth and final show with the 'American Idol' runner-up
Queen have announced that they will play another UK show with American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert in July.
The stadium rockers were due to headline this summer’s Sonisphere Festival with Lambert, but have been forced to schedule the new dates after the festival cancelled last month.
Queen were already due to headline London’s HMV Hammersmith Apollo on July 11 and July 12 this summer and will now play a further date at the venue on July 14.
The new show will be the final UK date of the band’s run with Lambert, of which there will be a total of five shows. The other dates are at Moscow Sports Arena on July 3 and at The Municipal Stadium in Wroclaw, Poland on July 7.
Speaking about the band’s feelings about playing live with Lambert, Brian May said: “Adam has an extraordinary voice – no two ways about it. So we’ll be exploring new ways to do things. So it will be exciting!”
