It seems that every other day Adam Lambert is or isn’t scheduled to perform with Queen. Make up your minds, guys! After their Sonisphere Festival gig was canceled, it’s been announced that Lambert will, in fact, join the legends for select shows.
reports that Lambert and the ‘We Are the Champions’ rockers will hit the road together for their June 30 show in Moscow, another performance with Elton John and two July dates at the Hammersmith Apollo. The Apollo dates were described as “some alternative… for some of the people who had bought tickets” to the Sonisphere Festival.

Queen’s Roger Taylor is particularly thrilled to perform with the ‘American Idol‘ alum. “We’re really excited about it,” Taylor said. “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,” he gushed. “I feel he fits into our sort of theatricality.”

So will the band do more work with Lambert? Maybe so. “We’re just going to see what happens, how well it goes, how we get on.” Considering how well they’ve done in the past, we think it’s a safe bet that this will soon turn into a resounding “yes!”
