Rock in Rio founder Roberto Medina explained: “30 years ago, Queen performed in front of 250,000 people who fell in love with the band, and it became one of the most iconic moments of Rock in Rio. I am positive that the moments from 30 years ago will be rejuvenated and rejoiced with Queen + Adam Lambert, making it again a moment no one will ever forget.”  Read more.

BrainMay.com – SHEFFIELD – END OF AMAZING TOUR – MADE US FEEL LOVED “The end of the tour is a strange moment for us … we all need time to recharge, and reclaim our home lives, but the moment when the last chord ends brings a strange mixture of emotions. It’s been a wonderful team on this tour … both on stage and off, on stage and backstage – a kind of touring army with great skills, more dedication than could be asked, and immense camaraderie. We will all wake up in the morning and feel a pang of sadness that it’s over. …”

BRIT AWARDS

BRIT Awards 2015 - VIP Arrivals

Adam Lambert talks about new album at the Brit Awards – “want it to be less about me and more for the audience.”

Adam Lambert loves Thai yellow curry | BRITs 2015 – Drove to the Brits with the head of Warner…He feels he’ had a lot of fashion disasters.

PRESS AND BLOG PICKS

Digital Spy – Adam Lambert on his new album: “There’s some house on there”“”I want it to be less about me, even though it’s personal, and more about the listener. So whatever it means to you. I’m doing the music for the audience, not for myself.

Liverpool Echo – Queen at the Liverpool ECHO Arena “Freddie Mercury had a rare and unusual gift. He managed to make us all magnificent for five minutes. His songs brought out the strutting peacock in the mildest mannered of music fans…It has taken Adam Lambert, the former American Idol star who was just nine years old when Freddie died, to truly re-create that magic. He has an arena-filling charisma and an effortless soaring voice, but there the comparisons stop. He’s not much like Freddie in the way he sings or the way he looks but somehow it works. It’s not Stars in Their Eyes and it doesn’t feel like a tribute show. Somehow they make it seem new and fresh and strangely credible.”

Express – He will rock you! Adam Lambert triumphs with Queen at SSE Arena Wembley – He is totally the headliner now…!! “Lambert certainly has the soaring, effortless vocal ability and flamboyant stage presence for the job and, nearing the completion of this European tour, appears supremely confident. Pouting, thrusting and flirting his way through the two-hour live seat, his bucketless energy and enthusiasm for Queen’s back catalogue is clear. The man who could be Mercury’s young apprentice is having the time of his life – as are May and Taylor, who are clearly enjoying the injection of energy Lambert brings to proceedings.”

Mirror – Queen star Adam Lambert: I’d like to work with Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith. Straight out of the RIFS (Rock Icon Finishing School) of diplomacy playbook: “Adam Lambert’s new album is due out soon, and although he won’t give away who he’s collaborating with he did say who he’d LIKE to be collaborating with. Speaking to Mirror Celebs at the Brit Awards 2015, he said he’s like to collaborate with Brit crooners Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran.”

Flecking Records – Top 20 Sexiest Male Celebrities 2015 “And so, on to our number one spot. And the winner is… Adam Lambert. Adam is, pretty much, the love of our lives, and currently holds the title of being the only man to make our sexy list every single year so far – that’s five years in a row. The 33-year-old singer is currently blowing the world away, fronting legendary rock band Queen. Adam is pretty much everything you could hope for in a man: he’s handsome, kind, stylish, a philanthropist and one of the most talented singers we’ve ever heard. As if it’s not enough that he has a great voice, he has incredible stage presences – and bags and bags of sex appeal. A worthy number 1.”

Kym Ypres-Smith @KymYSmith 2h2 hours ago
@Pianist_1 @adamlambert @QueenWillRock You and THOUSANDS of others, I suspect!!

@KymYSmith @adamlambert @QueenWillRock Let’s form an orderly queue LOL!

Kym Ypres-Smith @KymYSmith 2h2 hours ago
@Pianist_1 @adamlambert @QueenWillRock Just too fab for words – and a voice like I’ve never heard in classical or rock music!

Kym Ypres-Smith @KymYSmith 2h2 hours ago
@Pianist_1 @adamlambert @QueenWillRock The Liverpool crowd have just screamed the place down!!

Joseph Fleetwood @Pianist_1 2h2 hours ago
@KymYSmith @adamlambert @QueenWillRock Yes he has this wonderful personality and presence, and this flawless precise technique. Breathtaking

Kym Ypres-Smith @KymYSmith 2h2 hours ago
@Pianist_1 @adamlambert @QueenWillRock Technique is stunning – no breaks and a range to kill any Bel Canto tenor stone dead!

Joseph Fleetwood @Pianist_1 2h2 hours ago
@KymYSmith @adamlambert @QueenWillRock Oh, I didn’t scream, I cried! Waited all my life to hear Queen, and Adam delivered the goods!

Kym Ypres-Smith @KymYSmith 2h2 hours ago
@Pianist_1 @adamlambert @QueenWillRock Saw them with Freddie and Paul Rodgers, and now Adam. Will be blubbing at Sheffield tomorrow!

Joseph Fleetwood @Pianist_1 2h2 hours ago
@KymYSmith @adamlambert @QueenWillRock well, Bel Canto is in his armoury I could hear that – especially in Killer Queen

Joseph Fleetwood @Pianist_1 2h2 hours ago
@KymYSmith @adamlambert @QueenWillRock Oh you lucky girl. I’m too young to have seen Freddie. I was 6 when they played Knebworth

Kym Ypres-Smith @KymYSmith 2h2 hours ago
@Pianist_1 @adamlambert @QueenWillRock Too right! I must work out what some of his top notes are. I’m a high mezzo and they in my range

@Pianist_1 @adamlambert @QueenWillRock Saw them when I was at school; some advantages to being older I suppose!

Joseph Fleetwood @Pianist_1 2h2 hours ago
@KymYSmith @adamlambert @QueenWillRock He controlled up to a top E-flat at Wembley, and split into the A-flat above that by accident on STL!

Joseph Fleetwood @Pianist_1 2h2 hours ago
@KymYSmith @adamlambert @QueenWillRock but it’s not just having the notes- it’s the fact he can USE THEM!

Kym Ypres-Smith @KymYSmith 2h2 hours ago
@Pianist_1 @adamlambert @QueenWillRock Jeez, think I Puritani is highest tenor at F#, so he would kill it. Adam sings at my range mostly!

Kym Ypres-Smith @KymYSmith 2h2 hours ago
@Pianist_1 @adamlambert @QueenWillRock Yep – falsetto, full head voice or mixed. Most opera singers would die for that ability.

Joseph Fleetwood @Pianist_1 2h2 hours ago
@KymYSmith @adamlambert @QueenWillRock Lots of advantages – youth is wasted on the young!

    To commemorate the end of QAL Europe Tour 2015

    The dome-shaped curtain draping over Queen and Adam
    On stage, looking like a huge translucent lantern
    Dramatically lifted…pulled from above
    Revealing his signature thrust, hand in red-glove
    Clutching a golden mic…ready to do battle
    Note after note he unleashes his mettle
    The expectant crowd had waited this emergence
    As Adam appears from under the flying curtain
    ‘One Vision’ opens the show
    With Queen maestros firing up their rock metal
    Adam, the crouching tiger hidden dragon appears in a brilliant halo
    Majestically weaves Save Me and Who Wants To Live Forever
    Into the electrifying QAL operatic symphonic tableau

    The final bows are so touching…actually I read, ‘blows’ lol!; perhaps quite apt too, Queen and Adam gave their all-out blow after blow and then bow. lwl! (laugh with love). They bowed twice instead of the usual once to signify the end of QAL / Europe .
    In Chinese custom/tradition, the highest form of bow is three times; they did twice which is appropriate as ‘three bows’ is reserved for high ranks and Fathers/Mothers during special ceremonies. Alas, the new generations don’t abide by this, so much anymore. Also the three tiers of bowing is really respectful, the two older Maestros Brian and Roger first, then Frontman Adam, followed by Queen members who have contributed just as much.

    Adam and Sauli are always so happy
    Love to see their faces light up
    When they go jogging in the canyon
    Have no fear…these dark horses
    Always gee-dee-up from the rear
    When we least suspect it…they grab it!
    Success that is…or whatever lwl!
    As a matter of fact, they did fight
    But eventually see the light
    Mmm, Sauli seems to be the stabiliser
    Adam the omnipresent equaliser
    Let’s hope some day, they end up together
    Hand in hand, walking across the desert ether
    Blossoming in love and sunshine weather lwl!

    Hello Juneau and Xena…..Good to hear from both of you again! I came here because I saw some of my old poems being posted under Permalink with my name; so I decided to take a trip down memory lane here. I saw the lovely videos and pictures of Adam and Queen and decided to commemorate the end of their Europe tour with a poem and also one for Sauli. May be dropping in now and then. Thank you both very much!!

    After four years
    I stumble back with sweet memory
    Lo and behold…Juneau and Xena
    Greeted me with lovely smiles instantly
    Never expected them remembering
    Thinking it’s out of sight out of mind
    Like me, they love Adam poetry
    Which is exactly the reason I’m back
    ‘On The Meaning of Adam Lambert’
    Thank you both once again
    For a bit of effervescent history 🙂
