February 4, 2012 by staff
New Queen Frontman, The 30-year-old “American Idol” finalist, a longtime fan of the British group and of its late flamboyant frontman Freddie Mercury, will reportedly perform with guitarist Brian May, 64, and drummer Roger Taylor, 62, at the Sonisphere touring hard rock festival in the United Kingdom in July, according to a report by the UK tabloid The Daily Star on Friday, February 3.
His spokesperson declined to comment about the matter when reached by OnTheRedCarpet.com. The Queen musicians and representatives for the festival have also not addressed the matter publicly. The official line-up for the UK event, which takes place at Knebworth House between July 6 and July 8, has not yet been announced.
The song is featured on Lambert’s second studio album, “Trespassing,” which is set to hit stores on March 20.
Lambert sang a Queen medley with May and Taylor at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Northern Ireland on Nov. 6, 2011. He wore a long, black, leather jacket with slightly pointed shoulders. He wears what appears to be an identical one in his new music video. (See above) His spokesperson had no immediate comment as to whether it is the same jacket.
The glam rocker and former musical theatre performer, who is known for his wild outfits, had performed Queen’s iconic 1975 song “Bohemian Rhapsody” at his first on-air “American Idol” audition, which aired in January 2009. He placed second during the eighth season and performed with May at the finale, which raised speculation that he would become Queen’s new frontman.
When asked about the rumors, May told Rolling Stone: “It’s not like we, as Queen, would rush into coalescing with another singer just like that. It isn’t that easy. But I’d certainly like to work with Adam. That is one amazing instrument he has there.”
Mercury, who died at age 45 from complications of AIDS in 1991, was known for his elaborate stage performances and costumes. He and his fellow band members dressed as women, channeling female characters from the UK series “Coronation Street,” in the 1984 Queen music video “I Want To Break Free.”
