Queen + Adam Lambert announce third London show

Queen have 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, sold out instantly.

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

Queen + Adam Lambert’s third date will take place Saturday, July 14. Tickets go on sale on at 9.00am 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!”

Last week, Roger Taylor described the collaboration with Lambert as "fireworks."

Lambert ‘s sophomore album, “Trespassing,” is due May 15; the new single is "Never Close Our Eyes."
