Current Queen frontman Adam Lambert has revealed that he has plans to write a new rock musical set in the 1970s.
The star, who shot to fame following his appearance on American Idol, discussed his ideas on the Brenda, Call Me podcast with the drag stars Courtney Act and Vanity.
Lambert confirmed the musical will take place in the ’70s and will feature a variety of rock’n’roll numbers.
In their conversation, he explained “with this musical I got paired up with amazing songwriters so I’m approaching it sort of like a pop album, but it’s still a musical.”
Appearing on Lorraine last autumn, Lambert hinted at the musical in its early phases of development, explaining that he was in London creating the piece.
He revealed that the show is based on the life “of an actual person” and detailed how he began creating the piece, explaining “I’m starting to become interested in planting seeds in the creative space where it’s not necessarily for my own music, but to create other projects behind the scenes, to be a producer or a writer or a consultant.
“There’s definitely some stuff in the works. I’m getting geared up for that…With this project, more than ever, I feel like I’m more in the driver’s seat.”
As well as enjoying a prolific solo career, Adam Lambert has been the main vocalist of Queen since 2011 and was embarking on a world tour with the band pre-pandemic.
