He’s been performing with Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor for the best part of a decade and is about to embark on the next leg of the Rhapsody Tour. Now Adam Lambert has revealed how privileged he feels to perform Freddie Mercury’s iconic tunes and enthused just how wide-reaching Queen’s music really is.
Appearing on Lorraine earlier this week, the singer said: “It’s timeless. It’s unbelievable.
“I think that that’s one of their great things as a band.
“They were able to write music that would stand the test of time.
“And it reached everybody. They’re very universal songs.”

Lambert continued: “They’re about the human experience: love and loss and longing.
“These are things we all understand.”
Since Bohemian Rhapsody hit cinemas last year and went on to win four Oscars, Freddie Mercury and Queen have seen a huge resurgence in popularity – not that it ever really went away of course.
On touring as Queen and Adam Lambert, the 37-year-old said: “It is the gift that keeps on giving.”
He added: “And I think with the film being so popular there’s like a new interest.
“Y’know we have people in the audience who are younger now; families.
“And here in the UK we always were doing well, we’re doing well all over the world.
“But it’s just…it’s through the ceiling now. It’s crazy.”
