Adam Lambert Daily Update – April 10, 2012
Exciting news from Monday morning!
WCSX – QUEEN — + ADAM LAMBERT — WILL ROCK US SEVERAL TIMES THIS SUMMER “It looks like Queen will be busy with new frontman Adam Lambert this summer. Drummer Roger Taylor tells The Insider that he and guitarist Brian May are planning to play four shows with the former “American Idol” finalist — a June 30 concert in Moscow, another with Elton John in Kiev and two early July shows at the Hammersmith Apollo in England. The latter is to provide “some alternative…for some of the people who had bought tickets” to a July 7 Sonisphere festival date in England that was canceled. “We’re really excited about it,” Taylor says. “Adam…of course he has this unbelievable range, like Freddie (Mercury) had range. Adam can really cover it. He’s an extraordinary singer and a real talent. I feel he fits into our sort of theatricality.” As for doing more with Lambert, Taylor says that “we’re just going to see what happens, how well it goes, how we get on.” Taylor and May first performed with Lambert during the 2009 “Idol” finals and then at the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards. Taylor says he and May have also been approached to be part of the Summer Olympics closing ceremonies in London but adds that “I don’t think we’re meant to say too much about it yet.””
Here’s the Hammersmith Apollo website. The venue can accommodate up to 5,000 people.

evokeonline – Adam Lambert Trespasses at the NewNowNext Awards “All I know is that the performance has made my love for the 30-year-old stronger than it already was. I mean just listen to the way he belts out those lyrics; a sign of a true artist. He shows he can really entertain a crowd and command a stage. And can I just say that Adam’s style is as fierce as it can be.”

PopCrush – WATCH ADAM LAMBERT PERFORM ‘TRESPASSING’ AT NEWNOWNEXT AWARDS “Lambert was the biggest star at the awards ceremony and acted like it, owning the stage with swagger and attitude as he sang the in-your-face track…The song had more of a rock edge than the album’s lead single, ‘Better Than I Know Myself,’ with electric guitars, stomping drums and hand claps supporting his vocals.”
TheFABLife – Glambert Rocks Red Carpet Pumps As An Homage To “All The Queens Here” “Only at the NewNowNext Awards red carpet would a blond-streaked pompadour and giant wedge boots be considered business casual. But seeing as how he’s sharing the carpet with the fashion courageousness of Eden Wood and RuPaul’s Drag Race contestantsSharon Needles and Latrice Royale (in addition to so many over-the-top others),Adam Lambert knows that the eyeliner and heels he’s sporting are almost downright conservative. “In honor of all the queens here, I’m wearing a pump. I got a wedge happening,” the singer explained, showeing off his hot high zippered boot. “Compared to all these drag queens, I look normal.” Normal, fabulous in a different way, call it whatever you want Adam.”
