Queen and Adam Lambert looking into other venues after Sonisphere cancellation

Queen have confirmed that they are looking into other venues after this year's UK Sonisphere Festival was cancelled.

The Knebworth event was due to take place in July and Queen were due to headline one of the nights with American Idol singer Adam Lambert on vocals.

However, the festival's organisers confirmed today (March 29) that they are pulling the event due to because they would be "unable to run the festival to a standard that both the artists and that Sonisphere's audience would rightly expect."

In a statement released on Queen's official website, Brian May and Roger Taylor confirmed that they were looking into another venue to ensure they still perform. They said:

"We are disappointed to hear of the cancellation of the Sonisphere Festivals as we were very much looking forward to performing with Adam Lambert and particularly as the venue was Knebworth, our last stand with Freddie. We apologise for the disappointment to all those who were looking forward to seeing us. We are working to see if we can redress the situation at some other venue."
