AFTER ‘INSTANT’ SELL-OUT QUEEN AND ADAM LAMBERT ADD THIRD LONDON DATE

London, Thursday 10 May, 2012.

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, 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 9.00am 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!”

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

Unfortunately, it appears to be so. It has finally disappointed me.

Who knows, maybe they'll throw in a few matinee shows and cancel the rest of the foreign dates...

It's great the way they advertise the gig with Elton and then now completely ignore it with no mention at all, not even to say its not now on. And if it is on, then they've cocked up again.

I'm getting very close to formally contacting QPL to offer my services for writing, or at least proof reading, anything they put out in press releases, merchandise, books, CD etc...!

doesn't the press release say the third london show is the final of the 5 shows they are doing this year?
(which, sadly, implies, that they'll do much more next year)

GT; do you know if they plan to film/release these london shows? with all the talk of Queen coming full circle with adam lambert, surely they are bound to document it?

Maybe we should just rely on all the audience phones and camcorders filming the shows and compile a neat film out of that?

Good idea, that will save a few thousand £'s out of QP's pocket... May I also suggest that you organise an audience competition to direct the film, and set the commercial release of the film (with no rights or financial profit of course) as the first prize.

I'm joking of course, but if I was you (and didn't want to set up any false expectations as a semi-official representative of QP), I wouldn't be joking about something like this.

Who's the dipshit in the middle of the photo linked above? Is it the same idiot that was shown on Martin's website?

Sorry for those who call themselves real Queen fans - I do not understand this Adam Lambert euphoria! I feel ashamed the same way as a few years back when they did the Five thing...

As e-man states, and as I'd read, the press release says they are only playing five shows, so categorically confirms that they are not playing the Kiev show.

However, knowing how full of errors virtually EVERY press release, write up etc...is, I reckon they've cocked up again......
