Super Sonic 2014 Review: Queen + Adam Lambert



Quote :
Though this year’s edition of the annual Super Sonic music festival was reduced in scale and size, the presence of Queen with Adam Lambert singing in place of Freddie Mercury was more than enough to draw over 20,000 local fans.

Brian May and Roger Taylor of the iconic English rock band Queen staged its first-ever concert in Korea, with popular “American Idol” season eight runner-up Adam Lambert taking the mic as the band’s honorary lead vocalist.

For over two hours, the trio delivered a boatload of hits including “Stone Cold Crazy,” “Fat Bottomed Girls,” “Killer Queen,” “Another One Bites the Dust,” “Somebody to Love” and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love.”

While lacking the full energy of their prime years, the two original members of Queen nonetheless led an electrifying concert featuring not only the band’s classics but also well-executed guitar solos and heartfelt vocal solos.

And as for Adam Lambert, though he is no Freddie Mercury, the “American Idol” star proved that he had more than enough flair and spectacular vocals to send thousands of fans jumping and enthusiastically singing along throughout the entire performance.

The most memorable moment of the night was undoubtedly Queen’s grand closing performance of its greatest hit “Bohemian Rhapsody,” during which a video of the late Freddie Mercury, who died in 1991, appeared on the back screen singing the well-recognized melody.

Queen and Lambert closed their first concert in Korea with an encore performance of “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions” with Lambert’s driven vocals soaring through the night

I saw more than i imagined. it was Queen and Adam Lambert
Quote :

Queen was in sight. Brian May on guitar, Roger Taylor on drum and Adam Lambert who showed the best singing, it was none other than the Queen. I came close to shed tears when Freddie Mercury appeared on screen to sing with the band. Great music which made someone crazy, someone cry and led someone to being musician poured in. We were all champions. The performance was incredible enough to be the greatest moment of life to someone

At 14th, Queen had a historic first performance at the rock festival SuperSonic, held in Seoul Jamsil sports complex. 15k fans began flocking close at 8:30pm and got excited hearing a bit of Brian May's familiar guitar sound. Finally the curtain lifted playing 'Now I'm Here', followed by huge cheers and enormous singalong

Subsequent hit songs like 'Another One Bites The Dust' 'Fat Bottomed Girls' 'Killer Queen' 'Somebody To Love' were such scenes it was actually incredible while watching in reality. Though Freddie Mercury wasn't there, the strength of the songs were great. Haven't we all heard the songs till the record worn out since we're kids? Singalong was easy. Live guitar sound of Brian May who ran around passionately like a youngster doubled the impression. Overall Guitar volume was large, but it was better that way. The screen was so clear you could see coins.

In 'Killer Queen', Adam Lambert sang lying on the couch. He's a great performer, amazing 'show man'. He rampaged around the stage as Freddie did in the old live video and felt he's relaxed on stage. it seemed like pheromone flowing out when he sang like a countess on the couch. Such androgynous charm of him produced perfect chemistry with queen music...........read more at source
