Adam Lambert joined rock legends Queen on stage last night for an incredible concert as London celebrated the arrival of the New Year. Adam joined Roger Taylor and Brian May onstage for the show, which was called Queen + Adam Lambert Rock Big Ben Live. The show and the massive firework display was presented by BBC Radio One DJs Greg James and Gemma Cairney. Today, the Mirror reports that Lambert was pitch perfect as he ran through a selection of Queens greatest hits, including “Don’t Stop Me Now” and “Bohemian Rhapsody,” at Central Hall in Westminster, London.
Adam, who was the runner up in 2009s American Idol, has been Queen’s guest front man since 2011, joining original members Brian May and Roger Taylor. The Gloucester Citizen pointed out that Twitter went crazy, with fans tweeting their praise for Lambert and Queen. The newspaper even went so far as to suggest that Queen may have found the new Freddie Mercury.
Drummer Roger said previously, “I never imagined we would be around to usher in the year of 2015, what a thrill! We promise you a great night.”
Lambert toured the U.S. with Queen during the summer, and those shows were hugely well received, with the Inquisitr suggesting that it was the “must see” show of the year.
Unreality TV reports that Adam Lambert hag a huge 2014. As well as touring with Queen in the U.S. the Indianapolis-born singer headed down under to Australia and New Zealand, and even performed with Lady Gaga. The tour didn’t make a stop in Europe or the UK, so fans were delighted though when it was finally announced that the group would be coming to the UK this month.
It seems that Adam has his feet firmly on the ground, and is not taking his success for granted. The singer took to Twitter last night before the show to praise his fans, and to say that he was truly grateful for being able to pursue his chosen career path.
2014 has been a year of such blessings. I'm truly grateful to the universe for keeping on this path… http://t.co/wqJNOvOuGx

It is likely that 2015 will prove to be just as busy for Lambert, as the summer and fall tour with Queen is developing into a full-blown world tour. Lambert and the band are back on the road from Tuesday, January 13, with shows the length and breadth of the UK. January 29 sees Adam head to Europe with Queen, before they return to the UK at the end of February for a short final run of shows. It is likely that further shows will be announced in the future, and it has even been rumored in some quarters that Queen and Adam Lambert could headline this year’s Glastonbury festival in June.
Fans will also hope Lambert will release a new solo album, and it has been rumored that Adam may join the judges on American Idol.
