Adam Lambert Finally Confirms Queen Concert!

sonisphere-poster

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!

Click here to learn about the show, and to buy tickets.

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?

Love ya!

About Carol

I started writing on this site back in May 2009, not knowing what I was in for or where it would take me. I had no idea of the joy and personal satisfaction I'd find here. I never dreamed that I'd get to meet Adam, but that dream came true! The bonus of becoming such great friends with Lila and the other fans is what keeps me going. Music gets me though every day. In addition to Adam, I love Muse, Linkin Park, 80s and finding newer bands and supporting them by attending everything that's within 350 miles. With Adam, the boundaries are farther! Thanks for joining us on this ride! :)

  1. This is incredible news for Adam, Queen & us Glamberts! I can’t think of a better lead singer then Adam to help Queen celebrate their genius. It’s truly going to be an amazing concert…Unfortunately it’s not in my cards to travel there for it but “Damn”…looking forward to any clips that are shared with us left out of this opportunity!
    Thanks again Carol for all your info…I don’t know we would be without all your Adam info teazers!
    Bring on “Trespassing”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    XO Always…”ADAMICTED”

    • Thanks Michele! I’m so happy to be able to help! I realize I’m not the fastest with the news, but I think we present it in a different way than most of the other sites! 🙂

      Keep tunin’ in!

  2. This link may help a few people looking to get passport in the US. It allows you to put in info and gives you the closest places to get one. Besides the post offices, my search gave me city and township offices for the surrounding area because passports can be applied for there also.

    The site also has other good info such as this page.

    I can’t go because I have such severe allergies that plane travel is impossible but I hope videos get put up on Youtube so those of us who can’t get there can see. For those who get to go, have a great time! I know it will be a great concert. I watched the European Music Awards online and Adam and Queen are awesome together.

  3. Onegoodwoman says:

    What an awesome concert that will be. I wish i could be there in person. I also will look forward to any video clips from the concert. I could go see Adam sing every day of the week. 🙂

  4. Lila - Glamb #3 says:

    Wow… airfare prices are steep! Whew!

  5. I am going!!! I can’t believe it. I told my boyfriend that Adam was performing with Queen and that I was so sad I couldn’t see him and he said “why can’t you?” So we’re going! Thanks to his frequent flyer miles. He’s already booked the flights and I bought tickets to the concert!

    • Oh Gail, you lucky Glamb! Be sure and pass all your pix and videos on to us!!

      Now that Lila says the prices are so steep, I may have to re-think going. 🙁

      • We’re actually flying into Brussels first because it cost less “miles” and we also decided to make a vacation out of it. Maybe the airfare is cheaper also? It’s worth looking into.

      • wagepace says:

        Carol…please take lots of pics and videos for me just in case that i do not win the lottery in time to go….have a mindblowing time!

  6. OMG. Chokes me up thinking how far Adam has come since AI!!! So very happy for him! Love Adam always!!!

  7. wow, wish I was rich! Love Queen and love Adam, so wish I could be there!!! 🙂

  8. I was just reading an article on yahoo and Knebworth is where Freddie sang with Queen for the last time, in 1986. I think it’s cool that Adam is going to sing with them in the last place Freddie performed with them. The two best singers I’ve ever heard.

  9. WoW wish I could be there, but would have to win the lottery.
    Susan W; Maybe Freddie will visit.

    • lol I believe in all that so maybe Freddie will lol. I can’t afford to go either but my health wouldn’t let me anyway. Doesn’t stop me from hoping to see Adam somehow one day though lol.

      • wagepace says:

        Susan…hope u are feeling better every day…..I saw Adams concert in Roanoke Va and was amazed….I really hope you do get to see him perform in person one day bc it is well worth the travel….his energy is awesome….light and love to you

  10. Wishing I can go with my daughter who knows her way in UK and loves Queen. Will have to have serious talk. OMG!

  11. Thank you so much. I will try to buy a ticket asap. If it is possible from here. If other fans intend to go perhaps we could get together???? Anyone else???

  12. Gail-you have an amazingly loving boyfriend. I hope you have the most wonderful time. I can’t think of anyplace I would rather be in on July 7th!!! I’m a retired teacher on a limited income and such a trip is not in the cards for me- but my heart is overflowing with love and pride for this dear man who has brought so much joy into the world with his beautiful voice and loving soul. Enjoy Adam with Queen and know millions of us all around the world will be with you on that glorious day.

    • Thank you Lorraine. I do have a wonderful boyfriend. I’m still in shock that this is happening. I’m a divorced single mom and I could never afford this myself. I am so happy and excited and thankful for Adam.

  13. That kinda sucks. Ticket agents over here (in the UK) say that tickets don’t go on sale until Thursday. The notifications came through yesterday/last night once it was confirmed. *sigh*

    • I posted a link to the site where I bought the tickets early, but there is a message that says “Your comment is awaiting moderation”. I’m assuming it’s because it’s a link.

  14. Geez, God Almighty, would love to be at this concert, but unfortunately no way to afford it and it’s on my Mom’s 82th birthday, oh what a celebration. All you AdamQueenites out there who are going, please post anything you can get for us poor cads! This will be a once in a lifetime thrill, please Adam, take it to the limits!!!! Love 4-ever & a day Rita & Donna It’s gonna be GREAT!!!!!:) 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  16. About time Adam!!!!!!!! ……Hopefully Adam will then follow Freddy’s style of music in the future

  17. My guess for “others” would be Kerry Ellis.. Should be good.

  18. wagepace says:

    Hoping to win the lottery because I sooooooo want to be there.

  19. This venue is famous for rock concerts. I found this info, that it was the location of Queen’s last concert with Freddie Mercury:

    On 9 August 1986, Queen performed their last show with their classic line-up; the band did not perform live again until after the death of lead singer Freddie Mercury, at his tribute concert.

    So Adam will be performing on the same stage! That IS surreal!
