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

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

The 'For Your Entertainment' hitmaker has praised the concerts he has 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. With the Queen I have to be really exaggerated, bordering on the ridiculous, even the costumes, because it is the music that requires it, I have to be drawn into the role.

"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. I think what I love about it is that the lyrics could be interpreted in so many different ways on that kind of song. 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."
