Queen is looking for very special twenty-five year old.

On August 9, 1986, Queen played their what would end up being their very last concert
with Freddy Mercury at Knebworth House
in Hertfordshire, England. It marked the end of an era for the band, but the beginning of a new one for a rock-and-roll baby born at the show.
Queen drew a record crowd of 120,000, their biggest ever UK audience. Coming on the back of two stunning shows
at Wembley Stadium – to this day regarded as among their finest performances – anticipation was high.
Queen delivered the goods, winding up the crowd by arriving above their heads in a custom decorated helicopter
, and then going on to perform a Queen textbook set
to a deliriously enthusiastic audience, winding up with an emotional "God Save the Queen" and Freddie wishing his audience "sweet dreams"
A quarter of a century later, Queen is returning to Knebworth
, with American Idol
alum Adam Lambert
fronting the band. And they want to include the person who made their debut at Freddy's last show.
