LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Adam Lambert is joining Queen – at least, for one night.
The former “American Idol” runner-up revealed he will serve as vocalist for the group when they perform at a concert this summer.
“As many suspected, I can finally confirm: I have been invited by Queen to sing one very special concert! Sonisphere at Knebworth July 7th!” Adam Tweeted on Monday afternoon.
Adam added he was excited for the upcoming event.
“Sorry to be coy about the details the past few weeks, but I made a promise to keep it under wraps as best I could. Gonna be a surreal night!” he added.
This won’t be the first time Adam has joined surviving Queen members Roger Taylor and Brian May on stage.
They performed together in 2009 during the “American Idol” finals, and again at the MTV EMAs in Belfast, Northern Ireland last November.
