I had a BLAST at the Queen concert tonight. Thanks largely to the group’s “new boy” Adam Lambert. Don’t worry, that’s no disrespect…Brian May said that himself tonight after Lambert’s sexy (and campy) performance of Killer Queen.
While not Freddie Mercury, Lambert brings his own style and interpretation to the iconic catalogue of Queen. The set list was loaded with hits like Killer Queen, We Will Rock You, Another One Bites The Dust, Radio Ga Ga, and in my opinion the single greatest rock and roll composition of all time, Bohemian Rhapsody.
The sold out (?) American Airlines Center hung on the bands every note, and many were drawn to tears when Mercury would join the band from the giant Q shaped screen upstage. The band still rocks, and thanks to Adam Lambert’s youthful energy, attitude, and edginess…will continue to delight throughout their years playing together.
It’s been hinted at by May, but I would love to see Lambert join Queen officially and record some new material, I have no doubt these musicians would produce magic.
