Queen and Adam Lambert perform "great show" as London residency begins

Adam Lambert called his first UK gig with Queen a "great show" as the band begins their three-date London residency.

The classic rockers and Lambert scheduled three gigs at the Hammersmith Apollo after their headline slot at Knebworth's Sonisphere Festival in July was cancelled.

The band played the first of the three dates on Wednesday (July 11) as they returned to British shores following gigs on mainland Europe.

Lambert took to Twitter after the gig to say: "GREAT show in London!!"

The show opened with 'Seven Seas Of Rhye' before the band played a number of hits such as 'Under Pressure' and 'Another One Bites The Dust'.

There was a relaxed feel throughout the concert, with Lambert and guitarist Brian May bouncing off one another on stage.

Lambert meanwhile tried to endear himself to the locals by performing a Cockney accent before the track 'Fat Bottomed Girls'.

It is said the singer's father and brother were in attendance at the gig as Lambert builds on his popularity in the UK.
