Queen and Adam Lambert in Moscow, July 3, 2012

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

MTV News Russia – Interviews with Adam Lambert fans



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. – Queen News June 2012: Q+AL MOSCOW CONCERT VIDEOS  Tonight, Queen and Adam Lambert were joined by their guest, the highly regarded Russian singer, Zemfira, who sang “Life Is Real”.

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!

@BatinaDariaI am a very strong person and never cry…..cried until today!!!! I WAS WEEPING LIKE A BABY!!! ALL THE FUCKING TIME DURING MOSCOW QUEENBERT!
@BatinaDariaThe strongest and thoughest guys cry at Queenbert)
@Jadelle1I liked the fact that after the show today they were selling Adam’s albums. 😉
@elena_glam@adamlambert it was so cool to hear ‘bravo’ from old Queen fans, when you finished sing! I think you have new fans after Queenbert)))
@elena_glamAfter show I met Adam near the hotel! 🙂 He signed autographs for fans. omg he was so close!! And he was very sweet and nice)))))))

@Jadelle1: wow, they just said in the news that Adam’s room at the Moscow hotel The Ritz cost 5000$ a day.

    I can’t wait to watch the entire show. Thanks Xena and Juneau. This has been fun. Just curious about how many people were there?

      The stadium holds 78,000. Wasn’t totally full, but I’d say there were at least 60K? – J

    Thanks so much again for all the news, videos, etc. I hope someone has the entire show too. So exciting to be a Glambert!

    OMG! The flailing goes on! The vids & sound were no where as good as Kiev, but the magic..oh the magic! It’s only going to get better. (as if that’s even possible). Hammershith is going to be UNF believable. I’m still not sure I know what just happened here, but something very surreal just took place for sure. The people who were there tonight will never forget this. If the naysayers are still saying nay, then they have to be both deaf and blind. (or fucking totally insane for sure!)
