PRESS AND BLOG PICKS

Esquire – Adam Lambert Isn’t Here to Replace Freddie Mercury. He’s a Queen Frontman for the 21st Century  “People, universally, are craving empowerment,” he says. “That’s what I love the most about Queen’s catalog: They have these incredible songs that are all very strong and infectious that way. I’ve always liked Queen’s music because it’s timeless—the melodies, the ideas in their songs. They almost always exclusively write about the human experience. They don’t write about rich people, poor people; they don’t write about any particular color, sexuality, or gender. It’s the most universal songwriting I’ve encountered. I think that’s why they’ve become so legendary. There’s something really beautiful about how their music can bring people together.”

Yahoo – Adam Lambert Talks New Song, New Sound, and Those Old ‘American Idol’ Judging Rumors Awesome interview by Lindsey Parker! “Co-written with Trey Campbell, Big Taste, and Lambert’s longtime friends Ferras and Sarah Hudson, the delightfully attitudinal rock ‘n’ roll waltz showcases the newly scarlet-haired showman at his sassy, glammy, occasionally hammy best. It’s hard to imagine Lambert being any more confident than he already was, but on “Two Fux,” he sounds almost superhuman. And he sounds supremely comfortable in his (copiously tattooed) skin. At age 35, after eight years of being in the sometimes unforgiving public eye and five years of holding his own alongside Brian May and Roger Taylor, Lambert has gone from Idol to icon — and the role fits him like, well, those skintight red trousers he wears onstage with Queen every night…Well, I know from touring with Queen that I’ve found my groove with that classic rock sound, and have found an audience in that world, so that was definitely part of my thinking with the style of this [upcoming album]. But you know, I think people get really hung up on genre — and clearly I never have. I like throwing a bunch of different influences into one song. I like a lot of different types of music. And I think you have to have a lot of different colors to put on a good show. I just want to get back to what I love about music, and the reasons I got into music in the first place. That’s the driving force. 

Seattle Times – Review: Queen and Adam Lambert are the champions of KeyArena “To no one’s surprise, Queen closed out the main portion of the show with two of their greatest hits, “Radio Ga Ga” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.” As theatrical as much of Queen’s music is, “Bohemian Rhapsody” takes it to another level and in the wrong hands, it could end up seeming like parody or even karaoke but that was never a fear with Lambert, who won over any doubters by night’s end.”

Lemonade – Queen + Adam Lambert Rock KeyArena  “I cannot say enough though about Adam Lambert. He was humble, as were May and Taylor, and the absolute respect they showed each and every song was heartwarming. Even though I have seen some great artists like Adele and Imagine Dragons, who both put on amazing shows, Queen and Adam Lambert put on the best concert I have ever seen.”

Arizona Republic – Review: Queen + Adam Lambert infuse bombast into classics, pay respects to Freddie Mercury “It probably wasn’t the best idea to follow up this speech by playing a new Adam Lambert song, the horribly titled “Two Fux,” and dedicating it to Mercury. It came across as Lambert using his homage to Mercury as a marketing ploy for a new track, while an older track tied to Mercury personally would’ve made more sense (maybe “The Show Must Go On” or “Was It All Worth It”).

Thankfully, that was the only moment of the night where the tone felt off. Lambert’s singing and stage presence was captivating the rest of the night. During the infectious “Killer Queen,” Lambert rose from the ground, riding on the head of the “News of the World” robot. That wouldn’t be the robot’s last appearance — it almost acted like a mascot for the band.

Lambert brought the bombast to a whole different level on the extraordinary and uncanny “Bicycle Race.” He approached an ornate bicycle (which was technically a tricycle), threw roses into the audience and capped it off by riding it across the stage, while wearing these tall heeled shoes.”

Las Vegas Review-Journal – Rock greats Queen hit their stride with Adam Lambert “If there were any lingering uncertainties as to whether Lambert has fully inhabited his role as the voice of Queen, they were dispelled nine tunes into the show when he sashayed down the catwalk, which was shaped like the neck of a guitar, and climbed atop a pink bicycle strewn with roses to perform the sinuous, R&B-inflected “Bicycle Race,” luxuriating in the moment like a cat lounging in a patch of sunlight…Shoulder to shoulder, the two strutted down the catwalk together, right next to each other, like we had just seen May and Mercury.”

San Diego Union-Tribune – Review Mama mia! Queen and Adam Lambert show gets boost from the late Freddie Mercury “Lambert’s passion and gratitude were unmistakable. His broad vocal range and at times melodramatic delivery make him well-suited to perform Queen’s octave-leaping songs. He deftly emulates the winking pomp and proudly over-the-top bombast that were two of Mercury’s calling cards as one of rock’s supreme showmen.”

Orange County Register – Queen + Adam Lambert’s Hollywood Bowl set a fitting tribute to Freddie Mercury “Comparisons are indeed unavoidable, and perhaps a bit unfair, as Lambert tries to replace who many consider to be the greatest singer of all time. But Queen and Lambert know the songs deserve to live on, and the joy that the set brought on Monday stands as proof that they’re right.”

Billboard – Adam Lambert Continues to Prove He’s Queen’s Ideal New Frontman at L.A. Show “When it was over Lambert and May embraced, walking arm in arm toward the other band-members (including Spike Edney on keyboards and Tyler Warren on percussion) for their final bows. The moment was one of many during which the two men appeared happy and very connected on stage. A classic guitarist and his muse, carrying on.”

QUEEN + ADAM LAMBERT’S VR THE CHAMPIONS TO PREMIERE GLOBALLY ON UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP’S VRTGO VR PLATFORM “VR THE CHAMPIONS was shot in Barcelona in May 2016 and features performances of Radio Ga GaWe Will Rock You and We Are the Champions.  Project Instigator Brian May says, “This is the fulfillment of a dream. Through this unique Virtual Reality creation, fans around the world will for the first time be able to experience the excitement and energy of a Queen show in their own homes. Many of you have seen VR, but not VR like THIS!””
