The Hollywood Reporter – Sonisphere Music Festival Canceled: Adam Lambert and Queen Reunion Isn’t Happening “Festival organizers are expected to release an official statement on Thursday. Queen and Lambert are also scheduled to perform together at the festival’s Moscow stop on June 30.”
NME – Sonisphere Festival 2012 cancelled ?? “BBC Newsbeat writes that Queen leaked news of the festival’s cancellation on their website, Queenonline.com. However, at the time of writing, the Queen site has taken the story down.” The festival itself has not confirmed the story.
“We are disappointed to hear of the cancellation of the Sonisphere Festivals as we were very much looking forward to performing with Adam Lambert and particularly as the venue was Knebworth, our last stand with Freddie. We apologise for the disappointment to all those who were looking forward to seeing us. We are working to see if we can redress the situation at some other venue.”
Roger Taylor and Brian May via Queen Official Website
The Independent – Knebworth House rocked to its foundations “Knebworth, the stately home which has rocked to Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Oasis, faces a “huge hole” in its finances after the cancellation of a festival to have been headlined by Queen…Steep ticket prices and a glut of competing events, most notably the Olympics, have been blamed for a downturn in the industry.”
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAULI
New Sauli Koskinen Blog: Happy Birthday to Me! (PHOTOS) Translation by @miachihu & @tiiqqu. “Yippee! Exactly 27 years ago on March 28th, 1985 at 10.00 in the morning this guy dropped into this world and exactly one year ago I moved to Los Angeles. This0 past year for sure has been the most important, the toughest and the most challenging one for me. At the moment I’m happier than ever!”

Gives Renee Snyder a shout out for her coverage. He’s drinking again “occasionally”. His current fragrance is Tokyo Milk. Cuckoo has an underlying message. He’ll be singing the next single on American Idol.

MTV – Buzz Bites (3/28/12): Watch Adam Lambert Perform ‘Never Close Our Eyes’; ‘Trespassing’ Due May 15 “Watch Adam Lambert premiere a live acoustic version of “Never Close Our Eyes,” from his forthcoming Trespassing album. The song was written by Bruno Mars, and it looks likeTrespassing has a new release date of May 15. (Idolator)”
USA Today – Adam Lambert’s ‘Trespassing’ coming May 15 “Adam Lambert’sTrespassing has a new release day — May 15. Snippets of four of the album’s songs — the title track, Cuckoo, Naked Loveand Never Close Our Eyes— can be heard atSoundCloud. On Sunday, Adam premiered an acoustic version of Never Close Our Eyes, the song Bruno Mars contributed to the album, for an audience at Portland, Ore., radio station Live 95.5.”
Idolator – Adam Lambert’s “Never Close Our Eyes” And “Trespassing”: Listen “Is it May 15 yet? Adam Lambert’s sophomore album Trespassing is still a month or so away, but the Glam One is generously giving us a taste of what’s to come. While performing an acoustic set at the Bing lounge this week, Glambert performed a new track called “Never Close Our Eyes”, which was written by Bruno Mars. It’s a touching song about never wanting to sleep so you can spend all your time awake with your loved one.”
Iltasanomat (Finland) – Article on upcoming Liv documentary. Rough translation courtesy of @moominbert. “This is one of my first relationships that actually works. How well you get along with someone goes beyond nationality and age and all the other stuff. I believe our relationship is built on a very strong foundation.”
Gather – Adam Lambert Debuts Acoustic ‘Never Close Our Eyes’ “Adam Lambert is wrapping up a month-long radio promotion tour on the west coast this week. Next stops include Sacramento, the Bay area, San Diego and Los Angeles. For those who live in the cities Adam is visiting, tickets to these intimate performances are a hot commodity. Even for those lucky enough to win, it is difficult to score a front row spot. In fact, fans lined up as early as 6:30 a.m. for the Portland performance that occurred at 6:00 p.m. In addition to the acoustic performance (three songs), Adam also answered a few questions from the audience. Plus, he gave everyone a treat by singing a few lines from Katy Perry’s latest hit “Part of Me” at the request of the DJ.”
