Adam Lambert will rock you this summer -- with Queen.
The 32-year-old "American Idol" alum and glam rocker announced on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Thursday, March 6, that he is set to go on a North American tour this summer with the legendary British rock group, once headed by iconic singer Freddie Mercury, who died at age 45 in 1991. Lambert has performed with guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor before -- at the 2013 iHeartRadio Music Festival, at several concerts in Europe in 2012, at the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards and on "American Idol."
Adam Lambert will join the FOX musical series "Glee" this fall, co-creator Ryan Murphy says, adding that the glam rocker and "American Idol" alum is "super talented."
The casting comes weeks after TVLine reported that original stars Amber Riley (Mercedes), Heather Morris (Brittany), Mark Salling (Puck), and Harry Shum, Jr. (Mike) won't return as regulars for the upcoming fifth season.
Adam Lambert is not impressed by the singing skills of several of the actors in the new "Les Miserables" musical film.
The 30-year-old "American Idol" alum gave a Tweet-by-Tweet review of the movie, which is based on the hit Broadway show, on his Twitter page on December 30. While Lambert does not have Broadway experience, he has starred in several musicals, including "Hair," "The Ten Commandments: The Musical" in 2004 with Val Kilmer and the popular "Wizard of Oz" prequel musical "Wicked."
Adam Lambert is set to host the 2012 "VH1 Divas" which will feature performances from Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and Jordin Sparks, as well as from the glam rocker himself.
The "VH1 Divas" dance party is set to celebrate current and classic dance music. This is the biggest hosting gig for Lambert, a self-proclaimed "sometimes diva" who is also an "American Idol" alum.
Adam Lambert's epic appearance with Queen will not happen after all.
The gig was set to happen in July during the second day of the 2012 Sonisphere hard rock festival at Knebworth Park in Stevenage, located north of London. However, festival organizers announced on March 29 that the festival has been canceled.
Adam Lambert has confirmed that he will perform with the legendary rock band Queen, while its guitarist, Brian May, said he is sure Freddie Mercury would approve of the decision.
Lambert, an "American Idol" finalist and longtime fan of the British group and of Mercury, its late flamboyant frontman, will sing on stage in July with May, 64, and drummer Roger Taylor, 62, during the second day of the 2012 Sonisphere touring hard rock festival at Knebworth Park in Stevenage, located north of London. A UK tabloid had said earlier this month that Lambert would perform there with the band.
