CHICAGO REVIEWS

Rolling Stone – Queen and Adam Lambert’s Tour Opener: 5 Things We Learned “Regal rock band and their new frontman make a grand U.S. debut at Chicago’s United Center…From his cheeky call-and-response during “Another One Bites the Dust” to his outsize take on “Killer Queen,” spreading out on a purple lounger and fake-chugging champagne, Lambert proved as brilliant a fill-in as you’re bound to find. It’s a shame he wasn’t given more a cappella turns, however: “Somebody to Love” was goose bump-inducing thanks to Lambert’s vocal acrobatics. And that’s to say nothing of his vocal magic during “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “We Are the Champions.”

Chicago Tribune – Queen, Adam Lambert bring back the glam “rom Lambert’s amazing vocal range to his sense of style, humor and showmanship, he was a natural fit to the bombast and over-the-top production that is Queen. And while Mercury’s virtuosic voice is unparalleled, Lambert’s impressive take on the material paid appropriate homage while adding his own flourishes to the mix…the show epitomized Queen, in all its flamboyant glory.”

Chicago Sun Times – Queen, Adam Lambert rock the United Center in tour kick-off “One thing’s certain: Thursday night’s concert at United Center by Queen and Adam Lambert was the only show in Chicago to include both a physics lesson and a singer in a diamond-studded leopard skin suit. It was the perfect pairing of brainy and challenging rock music with outrageous and glamorous attitude…As he struck a decadent pose atop a purple-and-gold chaise lounge during a very glam “Killer Queen,” it was clear that Lambert possessed the charisma to pay maximum tribute to Mercury’s larger-than-life persona. It helped that he had skill to match the theatricality. Rafter-raising showstoppers including “We are the Champions” and “The Show Must Go On” displayed Lambert’s pop sensibility and dizzying range while simultaneously showcasing May’s unparalleled rock soloing technique.”

Hollywood Reporter – Adam Lambert and Queen Rock Chicago on Opening Night (Video) “The evening was packed with hits, and Lambert, at one point looking resplendent in a diamond-studded leopard-skin suit, didn’t disappoint with his usual vocal acrobatics and charm. For “We Will Rock You,” Lambert wore a crown and strutted the stage in a way that would make Freddie Mercury proud.”

Gigwise – PHOTOS: QUEEN AND ADAM LAMBERT KICK OFF US TOUR IN CHICAGO “The band, and their now-regular frontman performed an impressive, 24-song set packed with some of the biggest rock anthems in history. ‘Another One Bites The Dust’? Check. ‘Under Pressure’? Obviously. ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’? Well duh.”

Chicago Reader – Adam Lambert did Freddie Mercury proud last night – “The spectacle of it all was overwhelming. The stage’s backdrop was a gigantic Q with a video screen in the center, used alternately to show footage of the band, close-ups of May’s fingerwork, and, on a few songs, vintage Freddie footage. The Q’s leg extended out beyond the stage like a catwalk into the crowd that ended in a circular platform. The whole set was so impressive looking, so meticulously crafted that it seemed mildly ironic when Lambert’s microphone failed during the first song (“Now I’m Here”). “

Rolling Stone – Inside Queen’s Huge Summer Tour With Adam Lambert “Filling Freddie Mercury’s shoes is an enormous task, but Lambert feels up to the challenge. “It’s not an easy feat,” he says. “I think a lot of the apprehension has faded because we’ve done this a number of times in the past couple of years. That’s not to suggest I’m getting cocky at all, because I will never compare to Freddie Mercury. He’s one in a million. At this point, I know how to strike a balance between honoring the way these songs were originally meant to be sung and my own instincts, my own choices.”
