Elton John is NOT trying to get Adam Lambert to perform at a George Michael tribute concert, despite a false tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim. We’re told it’s not true.

According to the National Enquirer, John is planning an all-star concert to honor his late friend and collaborator, who passed away last month. A so-called “source” tells the magazine that John wants Lambert to headline the event, explaining, “Coldplay, Madonna, Elton and even Adele are going to perform, but the greatest honor of the night will go to Adam Lambert, who is going to close the show.”

The outlet’s questionable insider adds, “George was a great fan of Adam’s, and this will be the perfect tribute. Everyone has been sworn to secrecy, but details will be announced soon.” Gossip Cop, however, checked in with a reliable source close to John, who tells us the musician isn’t planning a tribute concert, and hasn’t been in talks with Lambert for one.

John did pay tribute to Michael during one of his shows in Las Vegas last month, but he currently has no plans for a full concert dedicated to the late Wham! singer. Gossip Cop is told the magazine’s entire report is simply not true.
