Queen and Adam Lambert in Moscow, July 3, 2012
Belatedly, and out of sheer self-preservation, I decided I need to live blog tonight’s show in Moscow. From the first videos popping up on YouTube, shaky and grainy as they are, I can see that Adam has unleashed his big, bad rocker tonight!! He is so much looser, playful, twirling – HAVING A GOOD TIME!! His interactions with the band, which were already such a joy to see in Kiev, have reached the flash point. The way Brian looks at him, I’m afraid his glorious silver ‘fro is going to spontaneously combust. I’ll be updating this post all night and into tomorrow as photos, videos and press reaction come in, so keep refreshing the page! – Juneau

PRESS AND BLOGS
Alex Duper Blog (Russia) - Queen + Adam Lambert in the Olympic (PHOTOS). ”Adam Lambert, whom is so much controversy on whether it is his place, in my opinion quite interesting to look at the scene, supply has enough artistic. Sings interesting, though many of his vocals seem too cutting. Of course, it is not such a legend like Paul Rogers. But, like Rogers, he does not try to mow under the Freddie Mercury, and this, my friends, is good.” Lots of HD photos on the blog site.

@RespectTheGB: Baby steps: For the encore Adam put his jacket on. And he played the tambourine during Tie Your Mother Down!!
After the performance, as we were leaving the venue, a very handsome young man stopped us, needing to tell us something. First, he asked where we were from; then said he had been to the concert. I asked him what he thought of Adam Lambert. “He is magical; he has magic around him and he shared that magic with me. I felt his magic.” He just had to tell someone!
@Jadelle1: wow, they just said in the news that Adam’s room at the Moscow hotel The Ritz cost 5000$ a day.
That’s how Adam’s room looked like (Slideshow)
THANK YOU UNIVERSE!!!!
