Former American Idol contestant Adam Lambert has performed on and off with Queen since way back in 2009 and he is preparing to work with them again. Adam has now opened up about working with Queen, admitting that it is like being with family.
Lambert explained, "It was such an honor to do a full, hour-and-a-half long set with them. I was so nervous, at first. I flew over to London to start rehearsals with them, and we only had 10 days scheduled for these big shows. It was a lot of material to learn, but they really made me feel comfortable.”
He added, “They’re really cool guys. It was almost like chilling on a family vacation with your grandparents — you know, with your cool uncle, and your cool grandpa. They’re like the cool guys that partied in the 1970s, and they’re telling great stories — and also telling me all kinds of things about Freddie Mercury, who obviously is like an idol. I got an inside scoop of what it was really like, which was really cool."
Adam Lambert will hit the US with Queen when they perform at the Las Vegas iHeartRadio Festival on September 20, 2013. Meanwhile, Adam Lambert was recently confirmed for a role in the new season of the hit show Glee.
