Queen - Queen And Adam Lambert's Collaboration Voted Best Live Shows Of 2012

Queen and Adam Lambert's London gigs have topped a list of music fans' favourite live shows of 2012, according to a new poll.

The Bohemian Rhapsody hitmakers' original pairing with the U.S. star was left in doubt when their scheduled performance at the Sonisphere festival at Knebworth Park in England in July (12) was scrapped when organisers cancelled the event.

However, the rockers bounced back by performing two shows at London's Hammersmith Apollo with Lambert stepping in for late frontman Freddie Mercury.

The collaboration was voted number one in the Gigwise poll of 2012's best live shows, ahead of The Killers in second place and British rockers Muse in third.

Psychedelic rock band Animal Collective came in fourth place while Dave Grohl's Foo Fighters round out the top five.

Jay Z and Kanye West's collaborative shows were the worst live performances, in joint bottom place with indie-dance collective Sbtrkt.
