Queen with Adam Lambert in Atlantic City

Adam Lambert a fitting replacement for Mercury

It seemed inevitable. When Queen guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor joined Adam Lambert on stage during Season 8 of “American Idol” for “We Are the Champions,” fate intervened.

The eventual “Idol” winner, Kris Allen, was also on stage that night, but May didn’t seem to notice. His eyes were on Lambert. And when they all took a bow, May whispered something in Lambert’s ear that may have been a job offer.

After a five-year-stint with singer Paul Rodgers that never seemed to totally click, was there anyone better to fill the flamboyant shoes of one of the greatest rock frontmen of all time – the late Freddie Mercury – than an equally flamboyant rising star who could help put Queen in the spotlight again, 40 years after the band formed?

So there Lambert was, fronting one of the most respected rock outfits at Boardwalk Hall Saturday night for the second-to-last show of the band’s North American trek labeled “The Once in a Lifetime Tour.”

Queen + Adam Lambert a thrilling combo

It’s a shame that the Queen + Adam Lambert tour bypassed Atlanta on its quick, 24-date jaunt this summer.
And they had to name it the “Once in a Lifetime Tour” to add insult to injury, right?

Adam Lambert - he's OK, he's alright

Until his death in 1991, Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury was one of Western music's great anomalies: a flamboyant, gay Persian gentleman with an octave-crashing range and operatic highs whose emotive voice graced some of rock's heaviest moments.

In so many ways, Mercury at the time seemed irreplaceable (and still does). Still, Queen's Brian May must have thought the heavens opened when American Idol contestant Adam Lambert - a flamboyant, gay Hoosier with an octave-crashing range - played with the guitarist during that show's 2011 finale.

Fast-forward to Saturday night: The 32-year-old vocalist has hitched his haughty wagon to the bombastic star of May and drummer Roger Taylor as Queen + Adam Lambert and presented a sold-out show at Atlantic City's Boardwalk more
