ADAM and QUEEN to play MOSCOW!!
28th February 2012
Press Release: Queen + Adam Lambert Will Rock Moscow
Having last week announced a special one-off UK concert performing with Adam Lambert at the Sonisphere Festival, Knebworth on July 7, legendary rock band Queen has announced it will play an additional earlier date with the singer when Queen and Lambert appear at Moscow’s Olympic Arena on June 30th.
These two shows are the only concerts presently planned for Queen and Lambert in 2012.
Queen band members Brian May and Roger Taylor met Lambert during the finals of American Idol Season 8 in May 2009 where Lambert joined the band to perform We Are The Champions.
Since then the band and Lambert have repeatedly hinted at a future collaboration, most recently with Queen’s Roger Taylor telling Billboard Magazine “"He (Adam)has grown into a really great performer with an astonishing voice with a range that's great. We would like to work with him again. There's nothing signed just yet but …it could be very exciting."
Lambert, who in the end placed second in AI, has since established a fast-rising career as an emerging rock artist . His solo album “For Your Entertainment” released just after the end of the Idol season debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 in December 2009 and he went on to receive the Young Hollywood Award “Artist of the Year”.
Recently, at the invitation of Brian May and Roger Taylor, Lambert made a second guest appearance with Queen, joining the band for the closing of the MTV Europe Awards where May and Taylor were present to collect the Global Icon Award for Queen.
Their eight minute MTVE set ignited an immediate reaction across the internet with social network sites buzzing with excitement and campaigning for more from Queen and Lambert.
The Moscow Olympic Arena show on June 30, coming a full week ahead of their UK show, will provide the very first opportunity to see what comes out of May, Taylor and Lambert finally getting to fully explore their very evident artistic appreciation of one another.
Says Brian May: “Judging by my incoming mail, this decision will make a lot of people very happy. It's a worthy challenge for us, and I'm sure Adam would meet with Freddie's approval! “
Talking of his forthcoming summer concert appearances with Queen, Lambert says: "The intention is to pay tribute to Freddie and the band by singing some great songs. It's to keep the music alive for the fans and give it an energy that Freddie would have been proud of. There's no intention in my mind of replacing Freddie. That's impossible. The way I'm choosing to view it is that it's a great honour and one I'm in no way going to shirk ... Being asked to appear with Queen is the best thing that can possibly happen".
Queen became popular in the mid-'70s and remain one of the most successful bands in the history of rock music. They released 15 studio and 5 live albums as well as numerous compilations. Among them 18 albums ranked #1 in music charts worldwide and the estimated total number or record sales around the world exceeds 300 million.
Since the death of singer Freddie Mercury in 1991 Brian May and Roger Taylor have continued to honour the legacy of Queen by performing alone or with guest vocalists, allowing fans the possibility to hear live such rock classics as Bohemian Rhapsody, We Will Rock You, We Are the Champions, I Want To Break Free, Another One Bites The Dust, Radio Ga Ga and others.
Queen’s music also continues to kept alive and reach new audiences through the world-wide success of the band’s hit musical “We Will Rock You” which has been performed across the world and in May will celebrate an unbroken ten-year run on the same stage in London at the Dominion Theatre.
Queen + Adam Lambert European exclusive first concert appearance: Moscow Olympic Arena, June 30, 2012.
The official ticket agency website: www.19-00.ru +7 (495) 641-19-00. Tickets on sale soon.
The Olympic Arena address: 16, Olympiyski prospekt, Moscow, Russia
"Ladies and Gentlemen" this is the kind of venue Adam was born to ROCK!

Olympic Stadium in Moscow at night
Olympic Stadium, known locally as the Olimpiyskiy, is a large indoor arena, located in Moscow, Russia. It was built for the 1980 Summer Olympics and hosted the basketball and boxing events. .... The venue is so large, that up to 80,000 people can occupy its space.
I am happy that so many Adam fans (including me) had the opportunity to see Adam in concert in so many small, intimate venues. Yes, he could tour small venues again, but everyday is seems less likely that we will have the opportunity to see Adam in a venue that seats 1,000 to 1,200.
That said, when Adam does embark on his Trespassing Tour, I am one fan that hopes he is booked into larger venues and can stage a more elaborate show. I have been to Adam concerts in clubs, theaters, amphitheaters and festivals, I saw him command the audience in arenas during the Idols Live! Tour. And everywhere I saw him it was a powerful and transcendent experience.
And now, in a beautiful full-circle, heading-to-the-next-level moment, Adam will be the frontman for two mega concerts with an iconic rock band.

Adam Lambert Recalls the Time He Got Call to Perform With Queen
February 28, 2012 03:57:59 GMT
The 'Better Than I Know Myself' singer says that after their collaboration at the EMAs, 'it just seemed to be the right thing to continue.'
Adam Lambert is excited about his upcoming gig with his idol, Queen. At the 20th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party, the singer remembered how he reacted when he got a call from his manager about the offer.
Sparro spreads his wings
Posted on 28 February 2012
.... more at the beginning
But it’s his work on Adam Lambert’s upcoming second album Trespassing that sounds particularly exciting. Sparro contributed two songs, Broken English and Shady, the latter with musical icon and Chic founder Nile Rodgers.
“I’ve always been really obsessed with Chic, and now we’ve collaborated on a song together. It’s a disco fantasy come true,” Sparro laughed.
“We were in the studio together, Adam and I, and we came up with this bass line I thought Nile Rodgers would be great playing. So we just asked him on Twitter, and he said yes.
“He seems to be really still living life to the fullest — he’s been battling cancer for the last couple of years but he’s still got such a great attitude.”
It seems Sparro and Lambert have developed something of a musical bromance, undeterred by the fact that Lambert’s debut single famously took more than a few cues from Sparro’s own Black and Gold.
“We have so much fun in the studio. We laugh a lot and we love thinking of clever ways to take things that are important to him and turning them into pop songs.
“We’re part of a small group of out queer recording artists — there’s definitely a sense of camaraderie there, and a mutual appreciation for each other’s work.”
In the strange world of US Radio…..

As we are all flailing about the entry of BTIKM into the HAC Top 30 – at number #28 on the official Mediabase chart! YES, FLAILING IS APPROPRIATE. This is a milestone!! WWFM has been steadily getting airplay. Last week WWFM got 1,439 spins, about the same as a month earlier when it got 1,458 spins (1.30.12) and in late November 2011 when it got 1,424 (11.21.11). So while we celebrate the rise of BTIKM, I just wanted to do a shout out to WWFM which I think is headed to becoming a classic pop song.
