Queen, a world-famous British rock band, is brining its new front-man, Adam Lambert, to Moscow. The exclusive concert will be held in the Russian capital on June 30th. The show will take place at the Olimpiysky Sports Complex, also known as the Olympic Stadium.
The show will be held in Moscow a week before Queen's performance with Lambert in Britain, ITAR-TASS reported.
As guitarist Brian May admitted, the joint concert with Lambert would be "a worthy test for the band." "I'm sure Adam would have received the approval of Freddie (Mercury)," he said.
In turn, the young singer said that "performing the Queen songs, he pays tribute to Freddie and the band itself." "I have no intention of replacing Freddie, it's impossible. Performing with the Queen is the best thing that could happen," said Adam.
The concerts in Russia and Britain will be Queen's only shows with Lambert in 2012. The musicians have worked together before. In particular, in 2009 they performed on "American Idol." At the end of last year, Adam joined Queen on stage of the MTV Europe Awards.
The members of the legendary band do not position the young artist as a permanent vocalist of Queen.
Queen is considered one of the most famous rock bands in history. Queen has sold over 500 million albums.
