Los Angeles Daily News – Audiences young and old flock to The Forum in Inglewood for Queen’s The Rhapsody Tour. “Lambert kept the excitement going throughout the evening. He arrived on stage atop a motorcycle wearing a kind of biker outfit with spikes on his shoulders to sing “Bicycle Race” and never lost a beat as he performed “Fat Bottomed Girls,” “I Want It All” and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love.””

Variety – Concert Review: Queen and Adam Lambert Capitalize on ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. “For my 9-year-old, newly obsessed with Queen thanks to “Bohemian Rhapsody,” it was a perfect first-ever concert for him. For the older concertgoers around us, it was a chance to hop in the time machine and recapture a bit of joy, all these years later. Or as astrophysicist Brian May might note, another way to practice Einstein’s theory of special relativity.”

Houston Press – Queen + Adam Lambert (+ Freddie Mercury) Is a Winning Formula. “I’ll admit I once wondered why Queen would ever perform live with anyone but Mercury, but Lambert’s grace in the face of such detraction has been winning. And, seeing him deliver his take on these songs live was fun and impressive. He camped it up for songs like “Killer Queen” (straddling the piano and batting his eyes with every flap of an over-sized fan) and “Bicycle Race.” He never tried to emulate Mercury, but just presented the songs in his own fashion with his own notable vocal skills. My wife, sitting next to me there in section 120, said it was probably her favorite classic rock concert ever because of Lambert’s infusion of youthful lifeblood into these old treasures. I agreed. Judging by the extended ovations, the thunderous applause and the long lines at the merch tables, so did a sold-out Toyota Center crowd.”

Dallas Voice – CONCERT REVIEW: Queen at AAC. “Lambert has been fronting Queen for eight years, and it’s true — he’s not Mercury… but he is Adam Lambert, himself a powerhouse singer. The concert could seem cover-bandish, merely recreating old standards, but it’s more thrilling than that. Lambert gyrates (on “Don’t Stop Me Now”), wails (on “Another One Bites the Dust”) and flounces (on “Somebody to Love”), but he’s not doing Freddie — he’s doing himself, the product of a musical landscape for which Queen was inescapable. When he struts out in a studded leather costume (one of at least five changes I counted), his version of a leatherman is less Castro District and more Greenwich Village. We all have a little Freddie in us, and Lambert lets his shine through.”

The Oakland Press – Queen + Adam Lambert remain the “Champions” at Little Caesars Arena. “The most heart-warming moment of the night, meanwhile, was the May-Taylor duet on a truncated version of “Doing All Right” — an apt reference to the state of the band in 2019. More than all right, actually; They are still the champions, and there’s no reason to stop them — now, or ever.”

The Advocate – Adam Lambert With Queen Is an Open Celebration of Queer Identity. “Where Mercury, in his sleeveless tops and tight jeans belting “Killer Queen,” was deliciously subversive, seeing Lambert, in his flowing poet’s sleeves, singing that song while the crowd hoots and hollers is an affirmation of acceptance for queer people. For a performance of “Bicycle” in what is the de facto second act of the show, Lambert straddles a motorcycle. He poses, vamps, and stretches backward supine and open on the vehicle in a moment that feels like a pure celebration of his gay identity.”
