Adam Lambert praises Queen for giving him 'confidence' and allowing him to show a different side on stage

Adam Lambert says performing with Queen has given him "a great confidence".

The hitmaker has praised the concerts he's done with Brian May and Roger Taylor for giving him an "opportunity to make myself  known to more people".

He said: "[It has given me] a great confidence. Public reaction to the group's concerts [have been] wonderful and the tour gave me the opportunity to make myself known to more people."

When asked if he feels differently performing with a group than solo, he told Italy's TGCom24: "I would not speak of different emotions but of different ways to approach the show."

Adam even said he has the chance to show off a different side of himself when performing with the group.

He added that he has to be "really exaggerated", saying: "it is the music that requires it, I have to be drawn into the role."

Speaking about the approach to his own tour, Adam said it allows him to express his "creativity" more.

 He said: "In my tour instead [I] explore the current fashion and dance and I can express my creativity. I have taken care of every single aspect of the show."

Meanwhile, the 34-year-old singer previously opened up about the personal nature of his album 'The Original High'.

 He said: "It's a very personal album, you know, I wanted fans to be able to understand me a little bit better, some of my more sensitive kind of side and introspective side.

"I think on the previous album I got to be a little bit more kind of over the top conceptually. This one is a little bit more honest I think.

 "It's not always easy but I think a song like that is meant to try to give people strength."

Speaking about the song itself, Adam said he enjoys the different ways the lyrics can be interpreted, adding: "It could be about a relationship, it could be about a relationship with a family member or a relationship with the public, which is I think the way I relate to it the most.

"I think that sometimes it takes a lot of extra energy to hide what and who you are."
