Billboard – Adam Lambert: Love Letter to the LGBTQ Community “Y’all are my true inspiration. You’re life lines that have kept me grounded and thankful. All the LGBTQ musicians, dancers, drag queens, bar stars, club kids, DJ’s, designers, actors, stylists, glam squads….. YOU are my circus family. It is because of all those years traipsing round our nocturnal playgrounds that I had any sense of how and why I wanted to stay the course; to rep for my queer family!”

AMP – adam lambert, the only man i’ve ever loved “Even though LGBTQ representation in media is still not where it needs to be, Adam Lambert is one of the only men I’ve ever loved who’s fearlessly chasing equality and visibility, a reality that Freddie Mercury surely would have dreamed of.”

Billboard – Adam Lambert on Carrying on ‘A Torch’ for Queen’s Freddie Mercury “When I came on the scene, it definitely felt like a bit of an uphill battle, with a lot more middle-aged straight dudes making a lot of [industry] decisions. That’s changing. Someone like Troye [Sivan]or Sam [Smith] or Olly [Alexander] from Years & Years or Hayley Kiyoko can say, “This is who I am,” which is what I’ve been trying to do, too. I always wonder if Freddie is looking down on us, excited that the times have changed. I hope I’m carrying on his legacy in a way that would make him proud and that he would get a kick out of. And I hope he’s envious of my footwear collection.”

Sunday Herald – ‘Audiences have a connection to Queen’, says Mercury replacement Adam Lambert “A lot of that is down to just allowing the music to be in my body – after a while it becomes an instinct, very much like it is for Brian and Roger. It took me a little time to catch up, but after a couple of years on the road, you connect into a living, breathing unit. We’ve become a real team, and I’m very grateful that my ideas are heard. It didn’t have to be that way. If they had said, ‘No! You have to do it this way,’ I’d have said, ‘Yes, sirs! Whatever you say.’ But they’ve been really lovely.””

The Guardian – Adam Lambert: ‘Now there’s an audience for me being exactly who I am’ ““Roger was like: ‘I think he would be really open and upfront about it, because that’s what he was like to all of us.’ [His sexuality] was just taboo in the media. But he was very matter of fact once he’d come to terms with it. And from what I have ascertained, he was fully bisexual. He was dabbling everywhere. I think he was ahead of his time.”

There are those who would say the same of Lambert. At a recent event in LA championing gay musicians, singer Parson James said: “A lot of people bashed him for what he did, but to be honest, I think if people like him didn’t come around when the conversations were so mum, then we couldn’t have people like Troye [Sivan] or myself.” How does that make Lambert feel? “Beautiful,” he says. “That was a really nice thing to hear.” He shuffles about in his seat again. “I didn’t get into this to be a role model, but then slowly I realised it was a responsibility I wanted. There’s so much good that can come from being a leader and being open.””

GQ – Adam Lambert on gay pride, touring with Queen and his favourite tattoos “I have a tattoo of Antinous, emperor Hadrian’s lover on my ribs. It was a very public relationship, and they travelled around together until Antinous died while they were visiting Egypt. He drowned in the Nile. Hadrian was so gutted that he cried for weeks, and then he named the city where Antinous drowned after him, had the government declare him as a demigod, and created several temples around the empire dedicated to Antinous. He became the most sculpted figure in Roman art for about 200 years. To me, the story was just so romantic. They were like the early gay power couple.”

Highwire Magazine – Review & Photos: Queen + Adam Lambert at The O2, London “Touring together for over six years now, Lambert, May and Taylor work together so efficiently on stage that you’d be hard-pressed to find a show like it. It’s slick, professional, and a spectacle in its own right that had every audience member transfixed.”

Attitude – QUEEN AND ADAM LAMBERT CHANNEL THE SPIRIT OF FREDDIE MERCURY AT LONDON’S O2 ARENA – REVIEW “And gay’s the word with Lambert, who shouts his sexuality from the rooftops and wears it on his tattoo sleeves and golden cloaks, in his high heels and guyliner, in his red leather jacket and sparkly crown. Freddie never hid his gayness but he butched it up in blue jeans and white vests, whereas Adam is an androgynous peacock who struts around making cracks about how far up his ass that robot’s head is. All this would be to hollow avail if he wasn’t such an awesome singer: Lambert’s got the pipes to tear the roof off rockers like ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’ and to tear into the heart of anthems like ‘The Show Must Go On’, not to mention the charisma to coax every single member of the crowd to do the ‘Radio Ga Ga’ hand claps. Singing ‘I Want It All’, he leaves you wondering what more any Queen fan could possibly want.”

Lust for Life – Queen + Adam Lambert in Ahoy “Adam Lambert may be humble when it comes to Freddie Mercury, but at the same time he also has the bravado needed to fill those unprecedented frontman shoes. That makes him – in combination with his great singing qualities – the ideal person to stand with Queen on the stage and will undoubtedly be the reason that Brian May and Roger Taylor have been with him for six years now.”

Glasgow Live – Watch as Glasgow Queen fans launch mass singalong after TRNSMT “From Brian May taking a selfie with the expansive crowd, to a poignant tribute to Freddie Mercury, TRNSMT’s Friday night was one for the history books…”

Independent – Queen with Adam Lambert, London O2 Arena, review: Wonderfully flamboyant “It’s no mean feat, finding a replacement for one of the greatest rock singers of all time, but Queen have found one of the best possible artists in the form of Adam Lambert.”

Glasgowist – SPECTACULAR SHOW AS QUEEN + ADAM LAMBERT ROCK TRNSMT IN THE SUNSHINE “‘I Want to Break Free’, ‘Radio Ga Ga’, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘We Will Rock You’…just some of the EPIC tunes on offer as the sun set on a glorious Friday night in Glasgow. The TRNSMT crowd needed Somebody to Love and boy, did the band deliver. From Brian May taking a selfie with the expansive TRNSMT crowd, to a poignant tribute to Freddie Mercury from fellow frontman Adam Lambert, mass singalongs to ‘Under Pressure’ and the promise by Adam Lambert to spend a night truly celebrating the biggest rock band in the world – TRNSMT’s Friday night was one for the history books.”

The Scottish Sun – Rock royalty Queen wow TRNSMT fans as they close day four of festival with sensational show “Eccentric Lambert wowed fans with his incredible voice and slick moves on the stage. Crowds were wowed by the theatrical performance in front of 40,000 strong crowd. The band had audiences in the palm of their hand as they seduced them with jaw-dropping renditions of Queen’s biggest ballads and classic rock hits. And they pulled out all the stops with glitzy costumes to add extra drama to the performance and Adam Lambert proved himself worthy of heroic Freddy Mercury’s crown.”

Hotpress -Queen & Adam Lambert, The Boomtown Rats, and The Darkness at Marlay Park “Lambert starts the show in some sort of red leather jerkin, during ‘Girls’, he shows off platform heels that would have given Edmund Hillary vertigo. Before they go into ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’, he reappears on stage in a green leather jacket and pink checkerboard pants, rising out of the stage on the head of the giant robot from the cover of News Of The World, not missing the chance to make an arse joke about it either. He rides a bicycle around the stage for, you’ve guessed it, ‘Bicycle Race’, and it’s no ordinary bike either, more a cross between Pee-Wee Herman’s two wheeler and a child’s tricycle. He strokes the microphone in a way that would make Price blush. Yes, he is certainly flamboyant enough for the job, the kind of fellow you could imagine receiving a late night call from Liberace advising him to “tone it down a bit”, but does he have the pipes? The answer is a resounding yes. Of course he’s not Freddie, but who could be? His voice does everything asked of it and more. He’s very good value indeed.”

    Queen, Brain and Roger have a phenomenal staging, lighting, sound, filming/recording, transportation, 1st class QAL management. Brian showed us how he gets lifted to the top of the wall contraption giving the idea Frank Robot is holding Brian on the wall. I think Adam benefitted the most from their meticulous precision of conducting their massive QAL undertaking…Wah! so much energy and grey matter required. Must be very satisfying! As Adam says: We are now one big family.

    Pharaoh digs summer camp

    You have grown taller, nice sturdy legs; Grandpa always shows you smiling, Daddy usually shows you snoozing.

    When is Daddy coming to pick me up?

    Not sure, Pharaoh, he’s still in London tying up the loose ends and making preparations for the Las Vegas shows.
    Your Daddy was on fire at the European tour!

    What? Is he okay?

    Pharaoh Boy, don’t get alarmed…your Daddy’s vocals hit every note on the head and Queen was also on fire!

    What? So did the stage burn down?

    No, they were so hot they tore up the stage. Okay, Grandpa said you love summer camp.

    Yippie! Summer camp! I ran and ran…I want to break free; made many new friends; with Hazel, rolling in the sand.

    No wonder you are smiling Pharaoh; give my regards to handsome Hazel.

    My CNN Fan via Max Foster, just reported on the successful rescue of 12 Thai boys and their coach…describing the cave conditions as *treacherous…with a video.

    Now, my Trump Writer Fan / Trump’s tweet: ‘…the *treacherous cave in Thailand. Such a beautiful moment – all freed, great job!’
    5:39 AM – 10 Jul 2018

    Coincidences in the use of *treacherous, maybe or not… 2 different sources within close proximity of dates.
    In any case, they have been my regular ardent Fans. lwl!
