Global superstar Adam Lambert will be touring South Africa for the first time this November, with performances scheduled in Cape Town on Tuesday 13th November 2012 at the Grand Arena, GrandWest and then on Friday 16th November 2012 at the Coca-Cola Dome Johannesburg.

The tour is presented by 94.7 Highveld Stereo, 94.5 KFM and M-Net.

Adam Lambert came to prominence following his appearance on the eighth season of American Idol. Although he was runner-up, Lambert launched a successful music career with the release of his first studio album ‘For Your Entertainment’ which debuted at Number Three on the Billboard200, selling over two million copies, and reaching the Top 10 in over a dozen countries worldwide.

The album achieved international success with its singles “For Your Entertainment”, “Whataya Want from Me” and “If I Had You”.

Since the release of his debut album Lambert has accrued numerous awards and nominations, including a Grammy nomination for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance and is the first American Idol finalist to tour the world in support of a debut album in the year following their season.

In November 2011 Adam took to the stage in the finale of the MTV European Music Awards to sing lead vocals with Queen, who were being honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Roger Taylor commented after that Adam is “a really great performer with an astonishing voice”. Lambert later fronted Queen for a tour across the UK and Eastern Europe.

His latest album ‘Trespassing’ entered the Billboard 200 album chart at number one.
