Over the last few months, the world has gone Queen (opens in new tab) crazy thanks to the massive success of the Bohemian Rhapsody film.

It’s now the biggest music biopic of all time, scooping two prestigious Golden Globes (opens in new tab) and picking up seven BAFTA nominations (opens in new tab) in the process.

But the one figure who’s been out of the spotlight thought it all is vocalist Adam Lambert, who has been singing with Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor since 2011.

It was known he had made a cameo appearance in Bohemian Rhapsody, but he’s now acknowledged his role by posting a picture of himself on Instagram from the set, just in case you missed him the first time round.

He played the truck driver who catches Freddie Mercury’s eye in the film, which will be released on DVD, Blu-ray and on 4K digital on March 4 via 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Lambert will head out on the road with Queen once again on the 23-date Rhapsody tour across North America this summer (opens in new tab).

They’ll kick off the run at Vancouver’s Rogers Arena on July 10 and wrap up with a performance at Charlotte’s Spectrum Centre on August 23.
