Yahoo! Music – Queen Performs Freddie Mercury Solo Song ‘Love Kills’ for First Time Ever Lyndsey Parker once again proves why she is the best reporter on the Adam Lambert beat:

“Love Kills” is a relatively obscure song, but Queen fanatics definitely know (and love) it. It was late, great original Queen frontman Freddie Mercury’s first song recorded as a solo artist, and was featured on electronic music legend Giorgio Moroder’s soundtrack for the 1984 rerelease of Fritz Lang’s classic 1927 silent film, Metropolis. While the track wasn’t necessarily well-received at the time (it was actually nominated for “Worst Original Song” at the 1985 Razzie Awards), it did make it to No. 10 on the U.K. singles chart, and it went on to become a cult classic.

According to Queen’s publicist, Queen never performed “Love Kills” live with Freddie, who died in 1991. Freddie never performed it solo, either. But almost 30 years after the song’s release, Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor debuted a live version at the iHeartRadio Theater, with Adam Lambert singing lead.

This was a gutsy move. With rock purists likely already wondering if any singer, even one as talented as Adam, could ever “replace” Freddie Mercury, Queen + Adam Lambert reviving a Freddie solo song could have massively backfired.

But by putting a unique, semi-acoustic spin on the track, they remained respectful to the original— and to Freddie’s legacy. “We’re going to do it in our own way, minus the disco,” Adam explained to the iHeartRadio audience.”

Click Music – Queen + Adam Lambert’s iHeart Radio show proved they’ve rediscovered their killer instincts  “Adam is different. He’s an incredible singer with a charismatic presence on stage and he’s managed to form a strong friendship with Brian and Roger along the way. That friendship has a real spark to it that promises to light up stages across North America this summer. Their surprise performance of ‘Love Kills’ last night – a song from Freddie’s solo back catalogue – crackled with originality and managed to pay tribute to one of music’s all-time greats by doing it differently. It marked a shift in the evolution of Queen. For the first time in a long time, it feels like Queen really are back, regenerated into something distinct and exciting.”

Socialite Life – Adam Lambert And Queen Bring Down The House At The iHeartRadio Theatre (PHOTOS) “The guys rocked the audience with 8 of Queen’s most amazing songs, including the rarely performed “Love Kills”. You have to check out that performance after the jump; it gave me chills.Adam looked very comfortable on stage with rock legends Brian May and Roger Taylor–probably because he’s the only current performer with the balls to take on something theatrical like Queen.”

The Hollywood Reporter – Queen + Adam Lambert Preview Summer Tour with iHeartRadio Concert “The presentation started with a brief pre-taped Q&A conducted by long-time Queen fan and Motley Crue man Nikki Sixx. Then Brian MayRoger Taylorand Lambert took the stage and kicked their live set off with “We Will Rock You.”  They continued with the band’s two Billboard No. 1 hits, “Another One Bites the Dust” and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love.” Next came the only relatively unknown song of the evening, “Love Kills,” originally a Freddie Mercury solo recording produced by Giorgio Moroder for the soundtrack to the 1984 re-release of the 1927 film Metropolis.  Then it was back to the familiar, as the Lambert-fronted Queen tore through “Fat Bottomed Girls,” “Under Pressure,” “We Are the Champions” and “Don’t Stop Me Now.””

Diamonds World – QUEEN WITH ADAM LAMBERT SECRET SHOW 6/16/14 (PHOTOS) “This was simply amazing. I have had the pleasure of hanging with Freddie Mercury on many occasions back in the day at parties & Adam Lambert was channeling him big time. Brian May & Roger Taylor – Official never sounded better & I’m so glad to see them back on the road. Queen “Freddie Mercury” shoes are hard to fill to say the least but Adam didn’t have a problem.”

    What can I say?? When Adam was singing Love Kills, I didn’t know what to do, so achingly beautiful. The whole show was phenomenal. Brian May and Adam Lambert were like 2 peas in a pod, utterly AWESOME. Thank you all for making this happen. Love you Adam, Love you Brian May and Roger Taylor, if this is your last gig, what a way to end it, and for Adam, a great chapter in his young life. What a gentleman, what a singer!

    Can you imagine how Adam feels? Growing up and having Freddie Mercury and Queen as one of you favorite bands and now being the frontman for them…I am so happy for him.
