PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
Billboard – iHeartRadio Music Festival Friday: Katy Perry Roars, But The Old School Soars “Of course, Queen and accomplished pop vocalist Adam Lambert had to do more than just show up and run through the rock group’s back catalog in order to earn the headlining slot over Perry on Friday night. With each new show, Lambert’s involvement with the five-decade-old band makes more sense: Freddie Mercury’s king-sized songwriting makes for a perfect vessel for Lambert’s operatic wail, and iHeartRadio fest attendees who wanted to stick around for “Another One Bites The Dust” got to witness the magnetic power of Lambert’s pristine high notes. The former “American Idol” runner-up oozed charisma as he strutted around the stage, winking at his reputation of a fill-in while also reminding people they should still pay attention to his solo career whenever this stint with Queen, er, bites the dust.”
Yahoo News – Elton John, Queen with Adam Lambert rule at 3rd annual iHeartRadio music festival in Las Vegas “…John was the crowd’s favourite. The 66-year-old was fiery on the piano, belting tunes like “Tiny Dancer” and “Bennie and the Jets.” He earned a standing ovation after his third song. Adam Lambert was equally as enduring. He performed with Queen and hit appealing notes on the classics “We Are the Champions” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Pop-rock trio fun. also sang with Queen.”

Adam Lambert, Queen & Nate Ruess hit iHeart festival – check out the amazing videos! “We may be biased, as you guys know how much we love Mr Lambert but we think last night’s gig surpassed even the highest expectations and not only did Adam shine vocally, but his vibe and dynamic with the rest of the band was so enjoyable that we were devastated when the performance came to it’s show stopping end.”

No other artist have I seen this year can deliver such incredible vocals while engaging a crowd while making you believe what they are singing about. Lambert’s vocal ability has no limits and when he takes off, it’s as if a rocket has been launched. Lambert is clearly the best popular music singer the world has ever heard since Freddie Mercury.”
