QUEEN And ADAM LAMBERT Announce Third London Concert

QUEEN today announced that they will add a third London concert with Adam Lambert at HMV Hammersmith Apollo in July. The band's two dates at the venue — July 11 and 12 — hastily added after the cancellation of Sonisphere festival, sold out instantly.

Promoter Paul Roberts confirmed the two earlier London shows sold out "within minutes."

QUEEN and Adam Lambert's third date will take place Saturday, July 14. Tickets go on sale on at 9.00 a.m. on Monday, May 14.

The added London date will be the final show of five dates QUEEN and Adam Lambert will play together this summer. In addition to the Hammersmith shows, QUEEN and Lambert will also appear at Moscow Sports Arena (July 3) and at The Municipal Stadium, Wroclaw, Poland (July 7).

Speaking at the time of making the announcement, Brian May said: "Adam has an extraordinary voice — no two ways about it. So we'll be exploring new ways to do things. So it will be exciting!"

"We're really excited about it," Taylor told Billboard.com last month. "Adam... of course he has this unbelievable range, like Freddie had range. Adam can really cover it. He's an extraordinary singer and a real talent. I feel he fits into our sort of theatricality."

Regarding the possibility of further activity with Lambert, Taylor said that "we're just going to see what happens, how well it goes, how we get on."
