Adam Lambert first came to prominence when he finished as the runner-up on the 2009 season of American Idol.
The singer released his debut album For Your Entertainment later that year and has since followed up his debut with the release of two LPs: 2012’s Trespassing and 2015’s The Original High.
Some of his biggest hits include Ghost Town, Never Close Our Eyes, If I Had You, Whataya Want From Me and For Your Entertainment.
As well as his hugely successful career as a solo artist, Lambert has also provided frontman duties for British rock legends Queen since 2012, and ahead of his forthcoming new solo dates will join Brian May and co. on a UK wide arena tour.
Alongside music, Lambert is a keen campaigner for social justice issues and in particular those affecting the LGBTQ+ community.
