Queen add extra London date in Sonisphere aftermath

08:26 10 May 2012

Queen announced that they will add a third London concert with Adam Lambert at HMV Hammersmith Apollo in July.

The band’s two dates already confirmed at the venue on July 11 and 12 sold out instantly.

The cancellation of music festival Sonisphere led the band to book the shows.

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.

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.”
