Queen with Adam Lambert announce Hammersmith Apollo dates
on sale to Sonisphere ticket holders Tuesday, and general sale Wednesday
Cancelled Sonisphere festival headliners Queen with Adam Lambert have announced two UK Concerts.
Two weeks after the shock cancellation of Sonisphere 2012 where they were due to headline with singer Adam Lambert, rock band Queen have announced they are to go ahead with a UK concert appearance this summer at London's HMV Hammersmith Apollo over two nights Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th July 2012.
The band have also announced that there will be priority booking to those who had held tickets for their Knebworth concert. Tickets will go on sale next week, first to Queen fans and Sonisphere ticket holders and then on general sale.
I'm voting for Adam ,want him to win over David Cook,silly or not... BTW Are we ever going to get the rather expensive Fault Mag. I'm losing hope.I paid in full and then never heard from them again...
Last I heard there was a delay because the excess demand caused them to have to use a different printing facility in order to handle the extra copies. This can cause a bit of delay. Maybe check their Facebook page or tweet them an inquiry.
Wal, can you find the translation of the IN Rock Mag article from a few days ago? I went to Adamwiki, couldn't find it, did a search and everything! The scans of the article where posted here a few days ago, but I don't remember seeing a translation, and it is supposed to be on Terra's wiki site.
Gonna take you to the top, to the brink of what you believe
Awards and accolades are not the reason why I do what I do. I do what I do because I can't help myself. I'm completely compelled to create music because it's one of main traits that defines who I am as a human being. Awards and accolades are simply the fringe benefits that come if I do a good job. I love doing the work and I love the people that I've worked with.
Yesterday, I was sent an article from the prestigious magazine NME, that listed the 50 Greatest Producers Ever (according to them.) It's cool being on the list and it's cool that they believe I'm worthy of being in the top 5. As I read the list of my records they had noted in the article, I thought of how lucky I am to have played with so many amazing artists.
I may be a producer and a composer, but I'm also a guitarist. I've played with hundreds of artists over a wide range of disciplines: Nina Simone, Phoebe Snow, Billy Joel, Beyoncé, Bruce Springsteen, Bruno Mars, Adam Levine, Adam Lambert, Herbie Hancock, Bonnie Raitt, Wayne Shorter, The Stray Cats, John McLaughlin, Marcus Miller, David Lee Roth, Carlos Santana, Lenny Kravitz, Stevie Wonder, Lionel Ritchie, Big and Rich, Idina Menzel, Elvis Costello, Beavis and Butthead, Big Bird and Barney, Hall and Oates, and Meryl Streep, To Name But a Few.
ETA This is the NME article he's talking about . I read it yesterday.
Let me preface this by saying that I want Adam to be the brightest star in the Universe, but I also think he is an artist and will balance that sensibility with his wish for fame and fortune. Just as with Nile, making music is part of who Adam is, and now that he has had a taste of the real artistic, creative joy of working with others with the same core need, I think he will never want to pander to the baser instincts of the industry for a #1 record. He will write what he knows is incredible and put it out for the world to hear and judge. If they judge that autotune and formula lyrics are what they want, I think he will be at peace with their choice because he is here to stay, will never be without a venue for his music, and is appreciated by anyone with an ounce of taste. It's amazing how a good night's sleep brings out the philosopher in me. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
