"Some say musicians aren’t always reliable. But when these legends warn We Will Rock You, trust them, they will. This time around Queen will be joined onstage by Adam Lambert for a blockbuster show set to premiere in the Russian capital in early July.

But it won't be an all-boy show awash with Hollywood-caliber special effects and starring American Idol star Lambert. Russian indie rock musician Zemfira, sometimes referred to as "Kurt Cobain in a dress", will share the stage with Queen for the second time.

Known for her strong vocals and lyrics, the songstress met the musicians in 2004, at the MTV Russia Music Awards. Back then Zemfira got the chance to perform We Are the Champions with Roger Taylor and Brian May.

"Queen is one of the few bands I'm bound to stay forever with,” Zemfira was quoted as saying. “Mercury is the best artist that ever existed, an artist with a capital A. Queen… a unique union of outstanding musicians,” she added.

The gig, one of the year's most highly-anticipated live events, is scheduled to take place at the Olympic Stadium on July 3."

Hmm. Still not looking terribly promising, I hope they can prove me wrong though...
