Queen And Adam Lambert Named Best Live Act Of 2012

Queen and Adam Lambert's London gigs in 2012 have been named Gigwise readers' favorite live shows of 2012.

After their performance at Sonisphere was cancelled, the band performed two shows at London's Hammersmith Apollo with Lambert filling the shoes of the late Freddie Mercury.

"It was such a tremendous honor to take the stage with Rock and Roll royalty earlier this year," Lambert told Gigwise. "Brian May and Roger Taylor are true gentleman who inspired magical moments onstage and off. In paying deep respect to the late, great Freddie Mercury, I feel I have evolved into a better artist. Thank you to all the fans who supported me in this venture. It was your fervent energy that fanned the flames and set the stage on fire!"

The Lambert-fronted-Queen beat out the Killers for the top slot, while Muse placed third, with Animal Collective and the Foo Fighters rounding out the top five.
