Adam Lambert has spoken out about the audiences he witnessed as he recently performed across North America with legendary rock band Queen.
The vocal powerhouse has also revealed that he has big plans for the next year, many of which involve using his talent to raise awareness and inspire people. Head inside for all the details….
The tour of North America with Queen may be over but there are still other parts of the world including Australia and New Zealand who are counting down the days until they get to witness the magic on-stage.
Lambert spoke with The Backlot and revealed that one thing he loves to do, is take a minute to stare into the crowd and enjoy the diversity of the audience.
He explained that the age and cultural differences between his and Queen’s fans, always makes an evening for him.
“I think seeing the diversity in the audience is always a big surprise to me, and makes me feel great,” he explained.
“I saw women, men, young, old, white, black, it was very diverse, and that was one of the most gratifying things. It means you’re connecting with everybody.”
Lambert also admitted that he felt “honoured” to perform songs in the place of the late great Freddie Mercury.
During the same interview Adam discussed how he wants to use his celebrity status for good and how he tries to be involved in raising awareness for issues he believes are incredibly important. The star has worked with a number of LGBT charities since he first shot to fame and has become known for his philanthropic nature and outlook.
He sees that as one of the biggest roles in his career it seems.
“I always want to have something going in that realm, I think it’s really important,” he said, adding that as an “out celebrity” he has an opportunity to try and “influence people”.
Adam also wants to “open their minds, or give them strength, in both the gay community or the mainstream straight community.”
