11 July, 2012: Last night in London, rock legends Queen returned to the stage, joined by former American Idol contestant Adam Lambert, stepping into the shoes of iconic frontman Freddie Mercury.

The show was the first of three, scheduled when their performance at this year's Sonisphere Festival fell through when the event was sadly axed.

Lambert fronted the band in true style, tackling classics such as 'We Are The Champions', 'Another One Bites The Dust' and 'Radio Gaga' in style - winning over the audience to the extent that critics are already calling for the band to sign the singer up to record a new album with the band.
