That absurd Adam Lambert queen will be fronting the band QUEEN this summer

"I know the evening will be a huge milestone for me, and with the support of Brian, Roger (Taylor, drummer) and the rest of the band I know magic will be on display."

Please make this person go away already.

Why such disgust and a call to make him go away? Lambert fronting Queen would be a fun concert to see. It's not like he's everywhere in our faces.

GO away, yet you read an article about him and then reposted it. You either actually like him or are a complete blithering idiot. I think we know the answer.

R5, once again you answer your own question. Your tiresome, played-out "DL HATES GAY PEOPLE" shrieking whenever people here diss somebody who happens to be gay is just that, played-out. It has no power anymore.

You know why we don't like him as well as we do and it has nothing to do with who or what he sleeps with.

Go away now.

Make me R8.

I've never posted that before and I have NO IDEA why people don't like Adam. Enlighten me.

I'm just tired of the mean girl nastiness toward many gays here.

Freddie would approve, and that's all anyone needs to know.

The rest is just bullshit.

I saw Adam in concert and he was very good. Gorgeous little studly dancers too!

He has a great voice and I'll see the tour if it comes nearby. He has the talent, range and flamboyance.

I'll bet it's a fun concert.

I was checking to see if anyone had started a thread about the Queen +Lambert tour and could't find anything.

The Chicago show was beyond what I was expecting. The whole production was massive and you forget how many hits they had. The audience of mostly Queen fans were largely won over by Adam. The band is in top form and all seemed to be having a blast.

If anyone id interested enough to start a thread I'll post some videos and reviews.

Here are some headlines I got from opening night reviews on the Queen fan page, - "Queen + Adam Lambert is pure majesty."

Rolling Stone - "Queen have a boatload of hits... and a boatload more."

Camel Clutch - "...put on a brilliant show on their opening night of their US tour."

Voice - Suntimes - "Queen, Adam Lambert rock the United Center in tour kick-off."

Chicago Tribune - "Queen, Adam Lambert bring back the glam."

Music News - "...proved that Brian May and Roger Taylor remain immense talents and Adam Lambert can certainly sing."

Hollywood Reporter - "Adam Lambert and Queen Rock Chicago on Opening Night. Tour kicked off in glam style onThursday night."

Adam is a great live performer. He gives what the audience wants and more. He sings live on every song, btw. Go to a concert. You'll love it.

That's funny - Wikipedia doesn't say anything about him having a new record deal, just that he's recording new material.

Where is his record deal with?

I'm r17 and was hoping to find someone to start a thread on the Queen Adam Lambert tour that just started in North America but I see this probably isn't going to happen.

Oh well, I'll look tomorrow the see if anyone started a thread and I'll post some stuff. Not really interesting in Marc Martel or fighting about the state of Adam's career.

For now I'm going to sleep. But seriously, if you like Queen at all you should see this show. The guys are getting older and it is probably their last big hurrah.

by Anonymousreply 3106/29/2014

Martel has never toured with Queen. The last Queen tour was with Paul Rodgers, and played smaller venues. The Queen + Adam Lambert tour is playing Madison Square Garden, etc. and is done on a big scale.

I saw the opener last week in Chicago, and it was the best concert I've ever been to. Brian and Roger seemed to be really energized by working with Adam.

by Anonymousreply 3206/29/2014

Adam is perfect for the lead singer of Queen. Perfectly matched imho.

An absurd queen with a powerful voice... fronting the rock group Queen?! What has this world of today come to!!

by Anonymousreply 4506/30/2014

Either Mika or Adam Lambert would have fronted Queen because they are the only two singers who can naturally sing most any Queen song going.

I think Lambert was the best choice because he is theatrical.

I fucking love Queen! They were a wildly creative band and their songbook has stood the test of time rather well.

by Anonymousreply 4606/30/2014

Wow not a big Queen fan (like the radio hits well enough) but I might go see them. Nice to hear real instruments and a real singer in concert. One thing though, Adam comes across as a bit Broadway in his vocalizations but that's all right. Just something I noticed.

by Anonymousreply 4706/30/2014

I am so pissed that they're not playing the Pacific Northwest. This is probably my last opportunity to see Brian and Roger live and I'd have to fly to California or Canada if I want to see this.

What you say may be true. Time will undoubtedly tell. In the meantime, you left out one detail. The cosmetics and astringents are paid for. The bathroom is paid for. The tweezers are paid for. And the pills are paid for.

[quote]Adam comes across as a bit Broadway in his vocalizations.

I noticed it too. But that's his background--years and years of musical theater starting when he was a child. Not sure you can break out of that habit easily. I love Adam's OTT style….and he DOES have a great voice with tremendous range, so there are a lot of compensating factors.

by Anonymousreply 5006/30/2014

Adam Lambert is incredibly good looking and very talented. I'd love to check him out fronting Queen, I bet it's a fantastic show. He's a glam rocker in the Gilded Age of Hip Hop/Empty Pop madness. I hope he has a great long run.

by Anonymousreply 5206/30/2014

It's ok if Adam is a "bit Broadway" because Freddie was an opera queen himself and that's what he fancied himself as.

by Anonymousreply 5506/30/2014

One thing people tend to forget is that Queen with Freddie was never as big in America as in the UK and the rest of the civilized, perhaps less homophobic, world.

Also after 1982, when Queen did a video in drag for "I Want to Be Free", they were virtually banned from US radio.

It was only in the 90's with "Wayne's World" that straight men adopted Queen for their "sporting anthems". But most the knowledge Americans have of Queen music is very limited. No wonder some question an "openly gay man" fronting Queen!

So it was great to see Queen + Adam dig into some of the little known songs for the concert I saw in Chicago. Also great to see/hear Adam doing music that uses his full vocal range and lets him fly his Freddie flag high.

Adam can beat anyone in a pissing contest.

Actually the champagne shower gif here is from Adam's very camp set-up to "Killer Queen". Freddie said it was about high-priced call girl. But we know (and Adam knows) what it is really about.

But he's a great singer, a terrific performer who really plays to the crowd.
