Yes it’s happened! Adam’s tweet came through yesterday, sending the fans into a frenzy!
@adamlambert As many suspected, I can finally confirm: I have been invited by Queen to sing one very special concert! Sonisphere at Knebworth July 7th!
@adamlambert 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!
Queen is headlining the show on Saturday, July 7. I keep hearing 120,000 people will be coming. But does that scare us? Heck no! I’ve even heard that some of my friends have bought single day tickets already! I was amazed at the price – $138 US dollars!

If you’re coming from the USA, be sure to allow plenty of time to get a passport. I started checking today on putting in the application. The post offices in San Diego are on appointment-only to take applications, and they’re already booked solid through the end of March. You need to allow at least 6-8 weeks to receive your passport, and with the rising cost of gasoline this week, I’m afraid airfare prices will be steep. The lowest I found this morning was $1308 from San Diego to London. OUCH! But this will be a once-in-a-lifetime concert, for sure!
Here’s an interview with Queen’s drummer, Roger Taylor, who speaks about the night. “The man who’s going to be singing a lot with us will be Adam Lambert, who’s an extraordinary American singer, with the best range I’ve ever heard of any singer.”
The topic leads to guest stars and Roger offers, “. . . Adam will be our principle lead singer and I guess we will have some interesting guest stars, yeah, as well.” They also talk about doing a warm-up show in Moscow. I wonder if Adam will lead sing there too?!?
So, who’s up for this unforgettable trip?
