The reviews have been incredible!

Philadelphia Inquirer – Queen’s second reign continues with Adam Lambert at the Wells Fargo Center | Concert review. “When Freddie Mercury drew a phoenix watching over the iconic Queen band logo back in the early 1970s, he must have known something. Because never in the era of rock music has a band had such a rebirth. On their first tour together, Lambert was like the talented shy kid trying to fit in – not so much with the band, but with the audience – singing his guts out to make sure Freddie’s fans would give him their blessing. The second tour, a more elaborate stage design and an acceptance of Lambert. On this third tour, there are times – especially during the three-song run of “Killer Queen,” “Don’t Stop Me Now” and “Somebody to Love” – when Lambert is every bit the frontman star. The legends seem to be there to support him…Lambert remains a vocal freak of nature whose voice, charisma, camp and costumes (one outfit looked as if Lady Gaga mugged the Burger King), are perfect for the Queen catalog. There aren’t many performers who can pull off the Village People masculinity of “Bicycle Race,” with the vocal chops of “The Show Must Go On” and “Who Wants to Live Forever” with the rock and roll attitude of “I Want It All” and “Under Pressure.”…What will they cook up next year for the Queen Golden Jubilee?”

Music Mayhem – QUEEN + Adam Lambert Brought Rock Royalty to Philadelphia on The ‘Rhapsody Tour’. “During “Fat Bottom Girls” the sold out crowd seen the Philadelphia Eagles cheerleaders on stage shaking their pom pom’s along to the beat of the song which fans seemed to really enjoy the addition to the already extraordinary one-of-a-kind concert from a truly iconic rock band.”

abc6 (Philadelphia) – Queen and Adam Lambert Rock Fans At Wells Fargo Center. “The show was bold, big, colorful, and everything you would expect from a Queen show. It is safe to say the Queen with Adam Lambert lived up to the hype, as well as the bands historic legacy.”

The Times (Pittsburgh) – Concert review: Queen was a killer at Pittsburgh show. “You had to be feeling goosebumps as Lambert took a big breath than nailed the final verse of “Under Pressure,” or when the crowd did the double hand claps, Live Aid style, for “Radio Gaga.””

Worcester Telegram – Queen + Adam Lambert are still ‘Champions’ of arena rock. “Thirty-three years after Mercury’s last performance with Queen, nearly 28 years since Mercury’s death (at the age 45 due to complications from AIDS) and 18 years since Queen’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Lambert has emerged as the worthy successor to the Mercury throne, as evident by Queen + Adam Lambert’s very entertaining, crowd-pleasing, two-hour and 27-song performance Sunday night at the Xfinity Center…With his bewitching good looks, perfectly coiffed jet black hair and blessed pipes, Lambert came out with the first of his five outlandish get-ups, a golden tapestry suit that looked like it was stitched out of the sofa cushions from Liberace’s bachelor pad with a black puffy, pirate shirt that would have made Jerry Seinfeld envious…Lambert warmly sung the opening strains of “Who Wants to Live Forever” (from the soundtrack to “Highlander,” which features another Lambert, Christopher Lambert; no relation), before elevating the song to new heights.”

Digital Journal – Adam Lambert and Queen put on amazing show at the Xfinity Center. “Adam Lambert gave Mansfield a night of Queen music to remember at the Xfinity Center, belting out hit after hit, as part of “The Rhapsody Tour.” Dr. Brian May and Roger Taylor were incredible as well and talented in their own right, proving they are living legends…It is evident that Adam Lambert is an outstanding performer and a true song stylist…Overall, Adam Lambert embodied the music of Queen and made it his own at the Xfinity Center. He is one of the most dynamic and charismatic live performers of our generation and being in the company of Roger Taylor and Dr. Brian May was sheer magic. Freddie Mercury would have been proud of all three performers and their talented band members for keeping his spirit alive. Their Xfinity Center concert garnered an A+ rating.”

Patch – Still The Champions: Queen Rocks Xfinity Center. “It helps too when the singer replacing Mercury has the range to do those songs justice. This was particularly obvious with “Somebody to Love” and “Bohemian Rhapsody,” two songs that showcased Mercury’s incredible range. Because of that, some singers covering “Queen” try to do the impossible and impersonate Mercury, a plan that’s almost certain to end in failure. Lambert didn’t do that. Yes, he hit every note, but early in the show, he made a point to tell the crowd it wasn’t about replacing Mercury, but doing his best to honor the man’s legacy and perform the songs the best way he could.”

The Irish Times – Adam Lambert: ‘The US is in a weird place, but the climate is one of progress’. “In a darkened London lounge, Adam Lambert arrives juggling heart-stoppingly fashionable luggage in a beautiful riot of mustard and purple colours. Oh, and black. Everybody in the room simultaneously tries to discreetly stare. “I’m so sorry I’m late,” he says, bringing his hand dramatically and apologetically to his heart. “My hair was not following orders. It was flopping this way and that . . .””
