Queen with Adam Lambert in Melbourne Night #1

Critics silenced as Queen rocks Rod Laver in sold-out show

Cameron Adams for the Herald Sun wrote:
THANKS to social media, we have seen a lot of people really bothered by Queen continuing to exist, now with guest singer Adam Lambert.

None of those people were in the sold out Rod Laver Arena last night.

These ticket holders weren’t debating how this technically wasn’t Queen Mercury died in 1991, bassist John Deacon retired in 1997, or whether founding members Brian May and Roger Taylor should still be trading as Queen.

Instead the fans were exactly doing what May and Taylor were doing — wildly enjoying themselves.

Within minutes you focus less on who isn’t there rather who is — May is one of the all time rock guitar heroes whose work is instantly identifiable and nothing has changed.

And Lambert plugs into Queen perfectly, if anything dialling down his theatricality...slightly.

He may be having the most fun of all; reviving Queen’s catalogue in a huge arena with decadent production is an incredible and challenging gift for any singer..........[url=]read more

REVIEW: Queen + Adam Lambert, Melbourne

Paul Cashmere for Noise11 wrote:
Adam Lambert is the perfect fill-in for Freddie Mercury. Like Freddie, he is flamboyant pop to Queen’s aggressive rock.

The popstar frontman softens Queen’s venom. They are essentially a hard rock band lead by axeman Dr Brian May and driven by drummer Roger Taylor.

Following the death of Freddie Mercury, May and Taylor have done an incredible job of keeping the brand alive, firstly with + George Michael, an album with + Paul Rodgers, I think for a moment or two there may have been a + Robbie Williams and now they are doing it + Adam Lambert.

Taylor and May kept Queen’s legacy up front with the musical ‘We Will Rock You’. It put the music of Queen live on stage every night for more than 10 years. That show brought Queen a new audience and was the stopgap that has kept the band relevant to this more

Queen + Adam Lambert review:

It's not the same without Freddie

Michael Dwyer of The Sydney Morning Herald wrote:

Great little rock band, Queen. Those years before Bohemian Rhapsody, when they sounded like Led Zeppelin sucked sideways through the glam rock wringer, were pretty trippy and intense.
Then it all went rhapsodic, then camp and funky and patchy and tragic and now it's a kind of epic cabaret show, with the griseous guitar-and-drums engine-room chugging on behind an American Idol who rolls his eyes and pretends to swig French champagne.
When Freddie Mercury made his all-too-brief cameo in Love of My Life, it was hard to pretend the song is quite enough without him.

Every phase of the long, strange trip was paraded in unapologetic pomp at the beloved brand's first Melbourne show in 30 years. And each part of the "Queen + Adam Lambert" equation was warmly embraced by a full house trying hard not to think about the minus part of the more

Review: Queen and Adam Lambert, Melbourne, 29th August

How do you know when you’ve just witnessed an epic yes, EPIC gig? You sit up for hours afterwards playing old videos of the band you just saw, whilst struggling to put into words what just happened because you’re covered in goose-bumps all the way up to the fingertips.

A highly underrated Adam Lambert was humble to the fact that he wasn’t there trying to replace one of the best front men ever. He thanked the crowd of non-fickle eager ears for allowing him to "just sing some songs" and was oozing with pride to be where he deserves to be – on a stage with a seminal rock band. A band who knew how to appreciate and integrate his phenomenal range that was so effortlessly and fluidly introduced to the world back in 2009 as runner up in American more
