Brian May: We Won't Disappoint At Sonisphere

Queen guitarist, Brian May, has assured fans that Adam Lambert will not disappointment as the band's new frontman.

It was announced yesterday (Feb 21st) that the singer would be joining May and Roger Taylor at the band's headline slot at this year's Sonisphere Festival. Interviewed last night at The Brit Awards, May said "Adam Lambert is a phenomenal singer and the sound is amazing at Sonisphere".

"We hope to reach the greatness of Freddie's last gig there. It's a challenge but then again that's life''.

However, the band's decision has provoked huge controversy and mixed reactions from fans over the social networking sites, Twitter and Facebook. One fan wrote on Queen's Facebook page, saying:

"Everything would be better for freddie and the fans happier if they just don't call their resurrection as QUEEN. what's wrong with their own well-known names for the band (like Jimmy Page and Robert Plant)?!"
