The singer is on tour with Queen and has now become too big a star to take the tube
Adam Lambert usually likes to keep it real when he’s in London and jumps on the tube to gigs with fans. But it looks like the American Idol star will have to join other VIPs and grab a cab after he was MOBBED during his recent gigs at The O2 with the legendary Queen.
A source told Mirror Celeb: “He often goes on the tube when he’s here because it’s easier – he did it in November and didn’t have a problem. But during his gigs in London this month he got absolutely mobbed with people asking for pictures and his autograph. He has become a household name since the New Year’s Eve performance with Queen and people have just gone nuts for him!”
Meanwhile, the 32-year-old star, who is touring with the We Will Rock You band as their current frontman, is also working on solo material having signed a major label deal with Warner Bros. Records after he split from RCA Records earlier this month. “The next day, Warner Bros. contacted us, which I thought was pretty amazing and it was a kind of relief,” Adam told Billboard magazine. “It was just a scary thing to make that announcement to the world.”
The singer and his management have now reached out to Swedish songwriter-producers Max Martin and Shellback who worked with him after his Idol near-win and produced hits.
Max Martin will be the executive producer on his next eagerly-anticipated album and he’s announced a new single this week will drop in April. How exciting! He’ll need the dosh to pay for those taxis now he can’t get the tube.
