Queen with Adam Lambert confirm two London shows

After the cancellation of Sonisphere, Queen quickly put together two shows in London which will see the band perform with Adam Lambert on vocals. The performances will take place at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo on the 11th and 12th July.

A spokesperson for the band commented: “Queen acted immediately in looking for an alternative venue in an aim to avoid disappointing all those fans who had so desperately looked forward to seeing them at Knebworth. Coming in the lead into the Olympics, most of the venues they first approached were unavailable, being taken as official London Games 2012 venues. As the setting of some of the band’s best remembered concerts, the idea of returning to this historic Hammersmith venue really appealed to them.”

Brian May comments: “Somehow this feels right – The Odeon is a big part of our history, and its atmosphere is second to none. It’s the perfect place to acknowledge our faithful fans, and will be a fitting return to our roots!”

Roger Taylor adds: “We had made up our minds to play in the UK this year, so play we will ! Following the collapse of the Sonisphere organisation we didn’t want to let down all those people expecting to see us live!”

Speaking from the US, Adam Lambert said: “I’m so thrilled that Queen found a way to ensure that the fans will get to see this event this summer. I can’t wait to be in London to perform with Queen for these incredibly special shows!”
