When Adam Lambert was a young theater performer with a growing rock & roll fixation, there was one flamboyant singer who reflected his interests in the masculine and feminine, the daring and ironic: Queen's late frontman Freddie Mercury.
"What I always loved about Queen was that I could see what Freddie and the band were exploring, and I could identify with that," says Lambert, the breakout American Idol runner-up and solo hitmaker, who also tours with Queen + Adam Lambert. "I started falling in love with rock & roll, I dressed up like a club kid and went out at night, wore weird shit, I'm gay – all of that stuff put together. When I look at the history of rock & roll, Queen is the band that resonated the most with me: 'That's me, that's my life.'"
That is only more true since his graduation from Idol's Season 8, where he first met and performed with Queen's surviving members, guitarist Brian May and drummer-singer Roger Taylor. (Founding bassist John Deacon retired in 1997.) Lambert has toured regularly with the British rock act since 2012, and this summer, Queen + Adam Lambert will head out on a 25-city North American tour, opening June 23rd in Phoenix, Arizona, performing the band's major hits from the Seventies and Eighties, from "Killer Queen" to "Under Pressure."
