The UK's Daily Star is reporting Adam Lambert has confirmed that he is going to be joining Queen as its frontman this year.
Said Lambert: “After the EMAs, I heard faint little slithers of a backlash from people saying: ‘You can’t replace Freddie Mercury.’ But I already knew that. 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 front Queen is the best thing that can possibly happen."
DAtes included in Lambert's tour with Brian May and Roger Taylor include the Sonisphere Festival and a date at Knebworth in England, where Queen played their final gig with Freddie Mercury in 1986. Mercury died in 1991.
