Adam Lambert has enjoyed a hugely successful solo career after finishing runner-up on American Idol Season 8.
He is probably best known now as the ongoing frontman for the band Queen, taking over the role of the much-missed Freddie Mercury and touring the world with Roger Taylor and Brian May.
With the new movie Bohemian Rhapsody racing past $640million at the box office, the demand for Queen has reignited all over again.
