Adam Lambert chats to Pressparty about Queen gigs: "I'm Adam and I'm going to sing how I always sing"

Chart-topping performer Adam Lambert is currently in the UK to prepare for his run of London shows with iconic rock outfit Queen and told Pressparty that he can't wait to "sing the hell out of those songs".

During our exclusive interview with the 'Never Close Our Eyes' hitmaker, he spoke about how he has been preparing for the three dates at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo and revealed that he won't be channelling anyone except himself because he knows he can do the music justice:

"I’m honoured that they asked me to be a part of it and I think that it’s going to be a challenge, but it’s going to be one that I’m really looking forward to and I’m just going to try to do my best to sing the hell out of those songs. Get up on stage and give the audience a great show. And to be on stage with Brian May and Roger Taylor? They’re rock royalty, it’s going to be crazy."

When asked if he has to adapt his vocal style to fit with Queen's extensive and challenging back catalogue, Lambert explained that he is simply "going to sing how I always sing":

"I’m Adam and I’m going to sing how I always sing. Obviously it’s different material and from a musical perspective it’s slightly different, but that’s my voice. I will use my voice, of course."

He also opened up about how he keeps his voice at its best and revealed that he sometimes uses cardio exercise to warm up for a session or rehearsal:




"Warming up is really important, both vocalizing but also physically – I like to run on a treadmill or at least walk. And getting sleep and drinking lots of water, that’s really important. Just getting your heart rate up and sweating and getting the blood flowing is a great way to warm up your voice!"
