Queen guitarist Brian May praises "extraordinary" Adam Lambert in fan club letter

Queen guitarist Brian May has heaped praise on Adam Lambert after he fronted the band for a number of shows this summer.

The 'Trespassing' singer joined the classic British rock group for some European dates in June and July, with three gigs at London's Hammersmith Apollo.

Lambert had previously performed with the band at the MTV EMAs in 2011 but this was the first time he has toured with Queen.

Speaking in a letter issued to fan club members, Brian May said that it was "amazing" to perform with Lambert and that, like Freddie Mercury, he is a very "spatially connected" singer.

May added that the shows felt like Queen gigs of old - "interactive and fun" - and that Lambert's voice is "extraordinary".
