QUEEN: One Lambert Gig Is Axed
One of two summer shows that Queen had planned with American Idol finalist Adam Lambert has been canceled. Producers of the Sonisphere Festival in England's Knebworth Park have pulled the plug.
Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor issued a statement saying, "We were very much looking forward to performing with Adam Lambert and particularly as the venue was Knebworth, our last stand with Freddie Mercury. We apologize for the disappointment to all those who were looking forward to seeing us. We are working to see if we can redress the situation at some other venue."
Queen and Lambert are still scheduled to play in Moscow on June 30th.
Other acts scheduled for Sonisphere included KISS and Faith No More.
