“Adam Lambert dazzled a sold out Hammersmith Apollo crowd last night, performing the first of his three highly-anticipated shows with Queen.”
Queen + Adam Lambert, HMV Hammersmith Apollo – review
London Evening Standard
“American Idol’s Adam Lambert gives tired old Queen a much needed shot in the arm, sizzling as the almost inimitable Mercury even as Brian May and Roger Taylor sag”
The Telegraph
“Adam Lambert can certainly handle the vocal range of Queen’s songs although he lacks Freddie Mercury’s rock grit and operatic bombast, writes Neil McCormick.”
Hammersmith Apollo, London
The Guardian
 “Queen and their temporary new singer Adam Lambert – a pairing that makes a good deal more sense than the earlier incarnation of Queen and blues-rock belter Paul Rodgers – were scheduled to make their British debut at the Sonisphere festival, but when that was cancelled they hastily booked three nights in Hammersmith. Thus, what was conceived as an outdoor show was brought indoors with all the trimmings intact, including fireworks, pyrotechnics and a lightshow designed to be seen for miles. “

Review: Queen Impress Crowds At London’s Hammersmith Apollo
The band debut their new line up to packed crowds…

n.b. sometimes I wonder if reviewers have even watched a Queen concert. On stage, Bohemian Rhapsody ALWAYS had the video of the second section – impossible to do live. ~ Xena
