Queen Official – “Concertgoers attending tonight’s, Sunday 16 February Fire Fight Australia benefit concert for National Bushfire Relief, were provided with a unique chance to share in a piece of rock history revisited when Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor, now fronted by permanent singer Adam Lambert, took to the stage at the ANZ stadium in Sydney.

For the first time since that historic event in 1985, Queen performed in full its original 22 minute Live Aid set, perhaps only known to many of today’s younger audience from its restaging by actors in the band’s commercial behemoth film, Bohemian Rhapsody.”

Rolling Stone – Adam Lambert to Open GLAAD Media Awards in New York. “Adam Lambert will perform at the 31st annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York. Honoring media for fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues, the event takes place on March 19th at the Hilton Midtown in New York. This year, Lambert is nominated for Outstanding Music Artist for 2019’s Velvet: Side A EP. The singer has been previously nominated in the category twice, ultimately winning the award in 2013, and he’ll release the second part of Velvet on March 20th.”

MusicTalkers – REVIEW: ADAM LAMBERT FT NILE RODGERS ‘ROSES’. “With a strong base line and early nods to Chic’s classic 70s sound, you’ll be hard pressed not to smile from the very beginning of ‘Roses’. The guitar work is, as you would expect, exceptional with great rhythms and funk fills, accompanied with an edgy bass that drives a real foot tapper. What Adam Lambert brings is a great pop vocal, which is softer than I thought he might go for. When you hear the blend of voice and instruments, you completely see why the tonality of the melody and lightness of the vocal is chosen, it works so nicely. The chorus has a break before it and then the powerful ‘All I got was roses’ can be heard and the crescendo hits you, with great supporting vocals, more synths and edgy guitar, it’s a wonderful masterpiece of sound. ”

Courier Mail – Queen and Adam Lambert Brisbane concert review. “Fans were desperate to witness the closest thing they could to Mercury. And, well, it must be said, it would be hard to find someone more perfect than Lambert. The stage presence. The charisma. The voice. Lambert, who was discovered on American Idol, has breathed new life into the songs that shaped history. With the flamboyancy of Mercury, albeit expressing it more freely than in the ‘80s, Lambert danced under the rain, gyrated on stage and hit notes no man should be able to hit all in high-heel platform shoes.”

Hear2Zen – Live Review: Queen + Adam Lambert, Brisbane 2020. “Adam Lambert is a star in his own right. His voice is triumphant, and he is every bit the show man needed to front Queen.  I love that he does not think he is Freddie.  He does not try to be Freddie.  He even had a moment in the night where he ‘clears things up’ about this and thanks Freddie for being the God of Rock that he was. For Queen, Adam Lambert is perfect.  He is entertaining, cheeky and fun and owns every note he sings. And man can he sing them.”

Wall of Sound – QUEEN + Adam Lambert – Gig Review & Photo Gallery 13th February @ Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane QLD. ” ‘I’m in Love With My Car‘ had Roger Taylor singing away whilst playing with Adam completely disappearing from sight, only for him to rise up from beneath the stage in front of us on a spinning motorbike for a sing-a-long inducing (but) shortened version of ‘Bicycle Race‘. His elegance oozed with charisma (akin to that of Mr Mercury) and those of us lucky to get a front row show were in awe.”

Daily Mail – Adam Lambert dazzles in high energy performance as Queen kick off their Rhapsody Tour in Brisbane. “Queen’s original band members Brian May and Roger Taylor have kicked off their Rhapsody Tour Down Under. The rock duo were joined by Adam Lambert, who put on a high-energy performance, as he took to the stage to belt out the bands legendary hits in Brisbane on Thursday. The 38-year-old singer, who shot to fame on American Idol in 2009, exuded a confidence that would make Freddie Mercury proud as he strutted his stuff at Suncorp Stadium.”

PressParty – Queen + Adam Lambert Bohemian Rhapsody New Zealand Tour: Reviews – “a stupendous night of artistry”. “May and Taylor are the custodians of more of the great songs of rock history than any two musicians should have any right to, and they’ve found, in Lambert, someone who can re-vitalise them and make them live again.”

    That’s our boy! It stuns me that people are still “surprised” by how magnificent he is. He has been doing this for years now!

    Aha, Adam…*intimacy. I also used it on my ecliptic tango poem and subsequent reply to CNN Fan :
    …I just heard a while ago your use of 3 words you picked from my ecliptic tango poem…*21 years , *balcony , *intimate / intimacy… February 5, 2020

    Love the song, as I’ve said when Adam and Nile strike up…oooh-la-la…Roses ! boom boom…boom boom…
    Roses always conjure intimacy even if the love does not materialise…
    A rose by any other name would smell as sweet ~ Romeo and Juliet

    Oh Adam or his writer used *window sill in the lyric…now that too is in my Lambgenie poem…

    What is that hanging on my *window-sill
    A mother-of pearl necklace ! …really !
    Lambgenie you have followed me ?
    Your wish is my command !
    I’ll set you free… wheeeee… a bluish trail vanishes from my balcony… Lam-My 26 Oct 2019

    “Brian, Roger and I got some food and watched Live Aid together on a big TV. — I thought, ‘This is so meta, I’m watching Queen at Live Aid, with Queen.'” Aw 💕

    Adam says he misses Pharaoh…

    O la la la la O la la lu! in the lap of step-Mom…Hey, Adam you got zi contender for Pharaoh’s love haw haw! Look at him sooo content, even peeping through his big eyes…he must be thinking, no need to look stoic…things are handed to me on a silver platter.

    O where O where is my internet doggo…O where O where can he be
    With his tail doughnut and his ears stand up … O where O where can he be…
    Curled up in bed with step-Mom Amy !
    Don’t forget me…your internet diehard Mom ! We’ve been through quite a lot from day 1…😁🐕🐩🏡×900

    你好 ni hao CNN Fan !
    I see you are responding to my poem; well, I just heard Cuomo say : He is *set free…(my Lambgenie poem above). And then, followed by Don Lemon, mentioning 3 times and your caption *purging / purge.

    My original use of *purge so innocent 🤩

    Aha! Pharaoh Sphinx!
    This brings back an unexpected fling
    Regarding perch and purge
    When Daddy remarked: You perched?
    I subsequently interjected:
    So have you…purged ?
    Thinking that he wanted to make sure
    You don’t mess up his new sofa 🤢
    Of course, you didn’t like that insinuation
    Retorted: What a question!

    I have used both… perch and purge
    The first, in my poem Cicada
    Perches outside my window
    In hot sexual manoeuvre
    Much to my amusement…purge became a media sensation
    And that instigated me to write a separate Purge poem 😁

    A splurge to purge is on the upsurge
    Mounting an intensive search for smirch
    Potential candidates swoop onto a perch
    To get a helicopter view of the political scourge
    Who will be the first?
    How many will be submerged?
    I give due respect to all involved
    The purger as well as the purged
    Cuz I have no beef in this House immerse
    Be not afraid for I’m with you always ~ Jesus’ verse
    The Last Supper, in the Garden of Gethsemane…His Passion serves…
    Meanwhile a curve ball smashes into the murk
    Candidates strategise in a roundabout reverse
    For now, stoic Pharaoh has no sofa to perch
    Cuz his Daddy is on a whirlwind Rhapsody Tour berserk ! 😅🐕

    Updated additional verse
    Covert and overt strategies converge
    To reinforce upcoming political converse
    Impressed by the relentless fight to the last, electorate
    My advice however is work as one unit, not split…you take the universe ☯️
    With consideration to present dire situation of widespread coronavirus 🥰😷

    This is really whimsical…Brian’s guitar trying to mimic Adam’s zenith notes, even the guitar doesn’t quite hit those inexistent notes 😁🎼🎸 2 Maestros!

    ADAM LAMBERT@adamlambert Feb 22 …Exhale

    #QALPerth #RhapsodyTour #AdamLambert … eden@WORLDL1NG 10h

    Vrooom Vrooom…I want to point my headlights
    Anywhere I like…Dracul! On guard!
    Dracul leaps from a spooky chasm
    Lands on Rocker for a siphoning spasm
    Desperate for Rocker’s blood rejuvenation
    Not so easy, Dracul!
    You’re up against a daredevil
    Biker heaves his sizzling headlights, blinds the demon’s sight
    Flicks out his Caesar laser to kill Evil in the Night
    Arrrrgh…Dracul strikes
    All hell breaks loose…pandemonium!
    Swoops onto Biker’s neck…jabs him with tainted fangs
    Biker thrusts his long legs up, yanks the headlights
    Demon rams…topples Rocker’s titanium
    Biker falls off his bike but in the nick of time
    With precision…shoots his infrared laser into Dracul’s cranium
    Arrrgghh… demon cringes…
    Biker feels it’s a terrible waste of time to continue
    Moreover, somebody to love is waiting down by the canyon
    For some tete-a-tete poetry in motion…a kiss under the red moon star-studded constellation 🌇🏍️
