The tour continues July 9th in Houston and ends July 28th in Toronto.

  1. Adam came from out of nowhere and look at him today. Perfect spot for him to be headlining Queen.

  2. Hmmm, he is aging really well. Beard/scruff really suits him.

  3. Adam Lambert has terrific vocal talent. Unfortunately, doing Queen covers with the band is not going to advance his artistry or his appeal beyond hard-core fans and the nostalgia crowd.

    I wish he would bring his voice to some great new pop. Heck, some of his cabaret recordings are incredible and deserve proper production.

  4. And you would be wrong. He is not doing Queen covers he is touring with Queen as their frontman in Canada, North America, Asia and Austrailia to sold out arenas and at the same putting finishing touches on his 3rd album with Max Martin in Sweden.

  5. Topol I love Adam to pieces, but his "artistry" is no greater than most pop vocalists. Singing the hell out of songs he didn't write is what he does. And he's fantastic at it.

  6. Sorry with Adam Lambert you see a gay performer and with Freddie you saw a rock performer. Freddie was so great he didn't need to oversing and there will never be anyone like Freddie again. Lambert is a dime a dozen.

  9. Saw the show in Chicago and it was way beyond what I expected.
    It looks like this is a pared down version of the arena shows.

    The usual production is massive and really cool. The songs are all over the place from the early years of hard rock, the big hits, campy stuff, a toned down period of just Brian May and Roger, and some unbelievable ballads from Adam. But it all worked.

    The show was mostly Queen fans and they were won over by Adam, It was funny to watch some of the old timers going crazy over him. It was really a great party and sing along, You forget how many hits they had. Reviews I saw after my show were all great.

    Go see it if you like Queen or Adam at all. This video doesn't capture how cool it is.

  10. I'm looking forward to seeing them in New York next week. Videos cannot capture how electric Adam is in concert.

  11. These concerts are not really Queen concerts. This is Queen on Glee steroids. Very sad. Freddie Mercury would not approve. Though Queen has some old fans, duh look at the age of Brian and Roger, the old women who like Adam are really Adam fans, not Queen fans. You want to know what happened to Clay Aiken's fans? Well.....

  12. Adam is a star, and he is gets more handsome as time goes by.

  13. Comment about a 'dime a dozen'....

    I don't know where you live, but I don't know anyone around here who could come close to outsinging Adam... He's truly talented (and seems to have a sense of selecting excellent roles).... Good for him!

    Posted by: TonyJazz | Jul 7, 2014 6:03:40 PM


  14. YES YES YES! Adam is KILLING IT! This is spectacular! What a perfect match -- Adam and Queen! YES!

  15. I wanted to like this so much but... Freddy is rolling over in his grave. Sad really to listen to him butcher that song.

  16. ouch

  17. Sadly, Adam lacks the range and vibrato of Freddie. It becomes very apparent at the end when he uses the audience for the refrain build instead of doing it himself. But he is putting the effort into the glam part of it.

  18. @ HUSKY14620, If you were any more wrong you would be arrested. Adam Lambert can sing things Freddie could only wish he could. If you don't like Adam say so, but don't come here with that silly garbage.

  19. It appears there are a few Adam haters that troll every review making disparaging remarks. If you realized just how childish this is you would stop. Don't you realize people have eyes and ears and know a troll when they see one. Do yourself a favor, buy some Bieber cd's, listen to your heart's content, get drunk on stupid, knock yourselves out.

  20. @Lanzo Freddie had a 4 octave and Adam has a 3 octave. Its really reversed. Adam can't do what Freddie did, the lower register. Freddie didn't need to sing on and on because his powerful controlled notes were fab.

    Posted by: Jake | Jul 7, 2014 8:20:12 PM


  21. Gosh this was terrible. Sorry if you're a fan but I can't even pretend to like it.

    And I know this will be fantastically uncool to say, but George Michael did this cover with a lot more talent. And it wasn't just the production, you can even tell if you watch this poor quality rehearsal tape. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMrTqXi4NOg

    Now go on and hate me I don't care. :)

  22. Dime a dozen? WTF? There are VERY few vocalists in our lifetime who can do what he does. And this video doesn't come close to capturing his energy and near perfect pitch of seeing him live. Phone microphones do not make a good concert recording of audio. Adam is amazing live. Seen him twice. Blew me away.

  23. Having had the benefit of seeing Queen, live, during their Night at the Opera Tour, I can vouch for Freddie being the ultimate performing artist. He had a very reserved and elegant way, of being entirely over the top! No one will ever be able to "copy" that. However, I am really glad to see Adam take this on. He has the real ability, and talent to makes the songs his own, with enough moxie to make it entertaining. Those of you that think you can speak for Freddie, should shut your holes, he would be very pleased to know how much his legacy has endured, and that other talented artists honor him to the best of their ability. Freddie WOULD spin in his grave to hear such unkind, foul, judgmental comments by trolls and misfits, of his fellow artists.

  24. No Freddie wouldn't spin in his grave but I bet he'd love to get up from there and hit some of the idiots with hearing problems on the head.

  25. Isn't it funny that there are people on this site that say things like "Freddie would not approve"...did you know him?
    Did he tell you before he died that he would hate the guy named Adam Lambert singing songs with Queen?
    I think it's cool that even after all these years Freddie Mercury is still relevant and widely-regarded as the greatest voice of Rock & Roll ever. Adam Lambert is doing a fine job of carrying on the legacy and I'm happy for his success.
    You Only Live Once...so quit your bitchin'!
