Queen and Adam Lambert press conference in Wroclave – Basically, a Brian-Adam-Roger bromance. “It’s because of Adam we have this opportunity…we feel re-energized” “Our first press conference together…history” “He’s born to it..a natural performer, a generous performer.” Awwwwwww, heart eyes all around!

Interview with Russian concert organizer (Translation), posted February 28, fun to re-read!!
Interview of Bakeev Eldar, the organizer of the concert @adamlambert & @QueenWillRock in Moscow at the Russian News Service radio
Bakeev: I’ve seen clips of his participation. I saw Queen & Adam collaboration on EMA. This is a man very close to Freddie. He inwardly, internally very close to Freddie. He is also a great expert, and he has the same sexual orientation. And he does not hide and I think that’s a plus, because it is a kind of disinhibition, very nervous, deep penetration into the material. And yet, I really like that he keeps his distance. It just shows that he is not going to copy Freddie. That’s what I like. He is very respectful for the musical material, and Adam shows sometimes that he can easily sing as Freddy technically. But he re-reads and displays his own attitude. In this sense, I’m looking forward to this concert eagerly, because I think it would be very cool.
Digital Spy – Adam Lambert: ‘Trespassing’ – Album review 4 out of 5 stars. “Follow-up track ‘Cuckoo’ reinforces the US star’s balls-out bravado as he commands, “Walk that walk like you don’t give a f**k,” over a powerhouse mix of techno synths and speaker-shaking thuds. Elsewhere, ‘Shady’ hears Lambert team up with Nile Rodgers and Sam Sparro for a prowling funk number about underground sex dungeons, while latest single ‘Never Close Our Eyes’ cements his ability to master a bona fide pop anthem. However, the record isn’t completely dominated by promiscuous uptempo stompers. ‘Underneath’ is a poignantly powerful ballad that hears Adam showcase his broad vocal range, while touching upon his more vulnerable nature (“Everybody wants to talk about a freak/ No-one wants to dig that deep”). It results in Trespassing being a full-bodied piece of pop artistry that doesn’t take notice of industry barriers and is all the more better for it.”
The Guardian – Adam Lambert: Trespassing – review 3 out of 5 stars. “He bounces from hot, hedonistic nights (Kickin’ In, a brittle, 90s-style synthpopper) to man-in-the-mirror introspection (Underneath, a windswept ballad that, more than anything else here, reminds us of his American Idol provenance), and if few of the songs are classics, his octave-leaping voice is often a showstopper. If nothing else, Trespassing whets the appetite for the next (hopefully quirkier) record.”

WILL YOU PAY TO SEE LIVE STREAM FROM HAMMERSMITH?
This would be an awesome way for us to ‘attend’ the show and get a top notch quality stream. it would also possibly benefit Queen, Adam, the promoter and the venue in more ways than one.
They could also possibly use the recording of the show to create the DVD we are all hoping for – IDK?
Please take a read of the thread OP and leave feedback on whether you would purchase an online ‘virtual ticket’ to one of the Hammersmith Apollo shows.
If we get enough ppl and good feedback, I’ll forward the link to Phil and the promoter (Paul Roberts) for feedback purposes only – no pressure – just to show that there is interest.
