Adam Lambert keeps Queen rocking in Houston

If there were any qualms from Houston fans Wednesday night about Adam Lambert slipping into the studded leather of the late, great Freddie Mercury — they were silenced when the “American Idol” finalist lent his swooping vocals to “Fat Bottomed Girls.”

The audience, already enthusiastic through opening tunes “Stone Cold Crazy” and “Another One Bites the Dust,” hit a fever pitch amid the thundering harmonies. It set a jubilant tone for the rest of the show.

Lambert is a formidable singer in his own right. But it’s more than a tall order to front Queen, the seminal English rock band whose hits still ring true with new generations of fans. Mercury’s vocal prowess is still the (impossibly) gold standard for many singers. (How many TV talent show hopefuls have attempted those songs?)

But Lambert is, in many ways, the ideal choice for the job. He’s famous but not quite a superstar. He’s scored hits but has yet to achieve a truly signature sound. And he possesses the right amounts of wit, charisma, rock ‘n’ roll heart and — yes — glam factor. Few current singers would likely attempt such a feat..........continue reading on.......The Houston Chronicle

Queen & Adam Lambert ROCKED Toyota Center Last Night!

Quote :
Oh MAN what an awesome show last night! If there was ever a great fill-in for Freddie Mercury, then Adam Lambert was the perfect choice for the role!

Last night Queen rocked out at the Toyota Center, along with Adam Lambert singing the classics as if he had always been part of the band.

With a simple, yet awesomely lit up “Q” stage, we got to hear 23 of Queen’s biggest hits throughout their career. For a few tunes, the late Freddie Mercury even made a few surprise appearances via video screen too. Talk about GOOSEBUMPS!..........view pics on Houston Mix 965

Adam Lambert No Freddie Mercury, But Next Best Thing

Adam Lambert, in his new role as front man for Queen, rocked Houston on Wednesday night, during one the band’s few southern stops on its summer tour. Sources say it didn’t take long for the crowd to warm up to Lambert, whose vocal abilities sold them–if not before–then definitely during his rendition of ‘Somebody to Love.’

Since Freddie Mercury’s passing back in 1991, finding a viable replacement with the vocal talent and similar over-the-top style to fill his larger-than-life shoes has been a difficult task for the band. Adam Lambert likely represents the end to that task. His glitz and glam via multiple costume changes compared to those of Cher–as well as his penchant for leopard print, leather, and fringe–kept the crowd singing along, cheering, and remembering Mercury, who died of HIV/AIDS. Film clips of Mercury’s performances from the 1980s peppered Wednesday’s performance, with Adam Lambert even ceding the vocals of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ to his late, great predecessor. It was plain to see that Lambert had achieved the very delicate balance of leading with his vocals while still honoring Freddie Mercury–and with some of the band’s original fans in the audience–that was no small more
