What only the UK was able to experience, now a North American audience will experience as Adam Lambert will tour this summer with Queen!!!
The announcement was made this morning on Good Morning America where a 19 date tour was announced kicking off June 19th in Chicago and ending in Washington D.C. July 20th. Tickets go on sale tomorrow.-DocFB
Diagnosis: They have performed in Las Vegas if the Glambers want to get technical but not a tour, which is exciting and amazing news.
Ahh. This is what it sounded like when radio was relevant right? "Radio Gaga" by Queen.
"Radio Gaga" was written by their drummer Roger Taylor and reached number 16 on the Billboard Charts in 1984. Wow. Billboard was getting stuff wrong even back then. Only number 16. Freddie Mercury sounds so soulful on this pop ditty.
Well, regardless where it placed, it is one of our top picks for #FlashbackFriday so enjoy it my friends!-DocFB
Diagnosis: All we hear is Radio Gaga ala "Suit & Tie"...
Adam Lambert appeared on The Wendy Williams show where he showed what a good heart he has showing while showing compassion for a fan who survived Hurricane Sandy on the Jersey Shore.
Adam also talked about his relationship, being in 2 years, and if he is thinking about marriage. Being 30 years old, he is not thinking about marriage.
They also talked about him coming in second place on Idol behind Kris Allen. He says that we don't here about Allen because he is not an "attention whore" like Adam.
When Adam was leaving the Wendy Williams taping, a slew of fans were waiting for him outside. He took time to sign autographs, takes time to ask people where they are from and even stops to take photos.
Adam is set to host the Vh1 Divas event later this month that will have tributes to Whitney Houston and Donna Summers.-DocFB
Diagnosis: At The end of the day, Grammy Nominations mean nothing. Fans however, mean everything....
Our Old School Jam Of The Moment is "Under Pressure" by David Bowie and Queen. For that co-worked that thinks Vanilla Ice came out with this beat before them, you have my permission to give them 5 fingers to the face.
We still haven't seen David Bowie since April 2011 and....our article on his health. Howard Stern spoke about Bowie on his radio show last week saying that Bowie has gained a lot of weight since his heart attack and is in hiding. Slash, who was Stern's guest has heard the opposite but has not seen Bowie in a while as well.
We hope you enjoy our Old School Jam Of The Moment and if you somehow read this Bowie, we all miss you.-DocFB
American Idol, trying to catch its Adam Lambert versus Kris Allen glory days, had a Queen night that did not feature Adam when it was obvious they really needed him.
Queen was there to see the top 6 perform their songs.....and what was missing was Adam Lambert with Queen to show them how it is done.
I watched the top 6 perform....and their are a couple of good voices but this season is lacking....and it needed an Adam Lambert to propel the show and make people care about it again. People can argue numbers with me but Idol is not what it once was.
Adam may have finished 2nd in Idol the year he was on, but he was the true winner. In hindsight, he is the real Idol. The American Dream so to speak.
The good news is that Adam will be everywhere. He just recorded AOL Sessions and will be on Jimmy Kimmel tonight. He is also slated to be on Idol later this season. There is NO reason, however, that he could not have been performing with Queen last night.
When I think of the top 3 on Idol, I think of Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and Adam Lambert. He didn't even win the show but we know why, don't we middle America? The Glamberts know, we know, and Adam knows and he is starting to talk about it just a little bit more.
The Voice and X Factor would not have dropped the ball having Queen on without Adam Lambert. Idol was the show that started the singing contest craze, and when you do not have one of your own on to give him shine and on a season that has been lackluster and him having a new CD out, wel,l we know Simon Cowell is somewhere smiling, rooting for Adam and looking at those Idol ratings go down again for another week.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Idol Are The Former Champions.....
The year of the Lambert cannot be stopped. After The Sonisphere Festival was cancelled, Adam Lambert & Queen have now announced not one but 2 headlining shows in the UK.
Lambert, who's "Trespassing" album drops May 15th, will perform with Queen in London July 11th at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo July 11th and 12th. Tickets will go on sale April 18th with Queen fans getting first dibs with a 24 hour ticket pre sale for the concerts. Also, Sonisphere bookers will get a crack the day before on April 17th to make up for the festival cancellation.
Queen released this statement regarding the announcement:
"Queen acted immediately in looking for an alternative venue in an aim to avoid disappointing all those fans who had so desperately looked forward to seeing them at Knebworth. Coming in the lead into the Olympics, most of the venues they first approached were unavailable, being taken as official London Games 2012 venues. As the setting of some of the band’s best remembered concerts, the idea of returning to this historic Hammersmith venue really appealed to them."
Brian May added:
"We had made up our minds to play in the UK this year, so play we will! Following the collapse of the Sonisphere organisation we didn't want to let down all those people expecting to see us live!"
Queen still plans on playing 2 more shows with Adam in the UK this summer with the dates to be announced soon.
Adam has a lot on his plate but it seems he likes it that way. We obviously cannot get enough.-DocFB
Adam Lambert will be the singer of Queen this summer for at least once concert. Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor confirmed the news this morning.
Rumors were circulating for the past month that Adam was the new lead singer and that also they were going to tour with Lambert this year.
What will happen on July 7th is on the 2nd day of the Sonisphere Festival, Adam will be the frontman for Queen. The event takes place in Knebworth Park in Stevenage, north of London.
