Adam Lambert on fronting Queen: 'Freddie Mercury would have been down!'

Vocal powerhouse Adam Lambert is set to reunite with Queen later this month at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas and believes the late Freddie Mercury would approve of his performance as the band's temporary frontman.

The event will be held on September 20 and 21 in Sin City, and speaking to Wild 106.1FM about stepping into the challenging role he confessed that after talking with the remaining members of the iconic rock band he feels reassured that Mercury would have liked him:

"I think he’d be down. Brian, Roger and the band, they’ve been really cool about telling me stories about Freddie — and kind of letting me into the kind of guy that he was."

"They always keep saying: ‘Oh, you guys would have gotten such a kick out of each other. You probably would have made each other laugh.’ It’s quite a compliment.”

Despite being confident about performing Queen's songs, Lambert added that Mercury is completely irreplaceable: "There will only be one Freddie Mercury. There’s really no comparing. I’m just up there when I sing those songs, just trying to kind of pay tribute.”
