This is such a bummer! We really wanted to see Adam Lambert perform with the legendary rock band Queen again, but their collaboration has fallen apart.
At one point, we thought the American Idol runner-up was going to join the band as their singer, but those dreams were quickly dashed. THEN it was announced he'd be joining them on stage at this year’s Sonisphere music festival in the UK, but the event organizers say otherwise.
The traveling festival that was scheduled to make a stop in England's Knebworth House between July 6th and 8th has been cancelled. The organizers released a statement announcing the bad news that read:
"It is with very heavy hearts and much regret that we announce the cancellation of Sonisphere Knebworth 2012 … Putting the festival together in what is proving to be a very challenging year was more difficult than we anticipated and we have spent the last few months fighting hard to keep Sonisphere in the calendar. Unfortunately circumstances have dictated that we would be unable to run the festival to a standard that both the artists and that Sonisphere’s audience would rightly expect."
Adam must be about a million times more bummed than us about the news, but remains "hopeful" that they will work something out again in the future, tweeting:
"While I'm sad that the Sonisphere festival has been cancelled, I'm hopeful that Queen and I will share a stage again someday in the future."
So are we!
