The U.K.’s 2012 Sonisphere Festival has been canceled, organizers confirm. That means the long-awaited one-time performance of Adam Lambert with Queen will not happen.

A statement from the Sonisphere website announced this year’s cancellation “with very heavy hearts and much regret.”

The same statement is posted at, and reminds ticket buyers that they would all be completely refunded. The official Queen statement from Brian May and Roger Taylor does hint that the show might happen, just not at Sonisphere.

“We are working to see if we can redress the situation at some other venue,” they said.

Lambert had previously confirmed he would sing with the surviving members of Queen for a special one-night show. In addition to losing the Queen-Lambert collaborative performance, fans will miss out on KISS, Faith No More, Incubus, Evanescence, The Darkness, Andrew W.K., and many more.

There is no official statement from Lambert yet, but we will update you when there is.

    It is sad that the concert was cancelled. I was wondering if the Queen concert in Moscow is still going to happen? No one seems to mention that concert. Adam will also be singing with them.

      I imagine they will at least try to move the one show to another time & place, it would be a shame for the show not to happen because the festival that hosted it had to be canceled!
