Having just wrapped up a huge Australian stadium tour with Queen, with even more shows booked around the world this year, Adam Lambert says even he is surprised by the longevity of his collaboration with the rock icons. 

Appearing on this week's episode of The Green Room with Neil Griffiths podcast, the US singer admitted that, looking back, he felt a lot of pressure when he got the call up to front the band and fill the shoes of the late Freddie Mercury.

"In the beginning, I definitely was very stressed," Lambert told host Neil Griffiths.

"At the same time, I was like, 'This is a once in a life time opportunity. There's no way I can say no. So i'm saying yes.'"

After first taking to the stage with Queen in 2011 for the MTV Europe Music Awards, they have gone on to play in front of thousands around the world, including last month's Fire Fight Australia concert in front of over 70,000 people.

"I thought it was just gonna be a one off, to be honest with you," Lambert continued.

"I thought it was just gonna be the EMAs that we did together as the first thing and it just has snowballed so beautifully into one thing after another. 

"I'm really lucky. I do feel very fortunate that this worked out the way it did."
