Queen rock the Brisbane Entertainment Centre: review

Natalie Bochenski of The Brisbane Times wrote:
Hours after Queen and Adam Lambert lifted the roof off the Brisbane Entertainment Centre, it will be difficult for many in the crowd to provide more than a breathless: "That was amazing. I can't believe I was there. That was amazing."
With a rock 'n' roll show combining reunion, tribute and baton-passing facets, Queen and Adam Lambert delivered just over two hours of pure sensation straight into the nerves and bones of anyone fortunate enough to witness it.
Lambert, of course, is the ring-in, the latest in a series of singers who have appeared with Brian May and Roger Taylor in the years since November 24, 1991.
That date is etched on the heart of every Queen fan, for it marked the day the world lost Freddie Mercury.
His spectre hung heavy in the air as the audience readied itself on Monday night. Would Lambert be just a pale imitation? Was it even right for the others to perform without Freddie?
Bass player John Deacon certainly took that tack, retiring from the music industry in the 1990s and shunning the limelight ever since. But May and Taylor's approach is one of proud ownership of the work created with and alongside Mercury, tempered with a deep fondness and respect for their lost friend. Lambert, it therefore had to be assumed, must have more

Music heals - Impressions of Queen + Adam Lambert

What a spectacular night! After so many Springsteen concerts all the pre-concert business was straightforward. I even managed to nab myself a 'cup' to decant my water bottle into (they didn't search my bag, so I arrived inside with a water bottle, plus lid, but little chance of keeping it with the crazy volume of security folk) But enough about me!

From the moment when the curtain began its strange edging forward on the stage, I was mesmerised by how much more 'stage crafted' this show was going to be than my recent more on Organising energy

Queen rock you with tribute to Freddie Mercury

THE shaggy mop of hair has turned from black to grey, the audience has aged a little too and lighters in the air have been replaced with iPhone screens.

A lot has changed, but one thing has never faltered- Queen still rock.

From women reliving their teenage years, to hardened rockers from way-back and even some children, the sold-out crowd at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on Monday night, knew they were part of something special.

A once in a lifetime opportunity to witness a real rock 'n' roll show with the legends that are Queen…..well, most of them.

Adam Lambert, an American Idol runner up who has achieved two top 10 singles in Australia, largely stuck to the script stepping-in as front man for the more

Concert Review: Queen + Adam Lambert

Scott Russell wrote:
Before last night’s Queen + Adam Lambert concert, I was hardly enthused by the idea of an American Idol alumnus fronting Queen. Standing in for Freddie Mercury is challenging enough, but it’s exacerbated by question marks over the authenticity of even calling it ‘Queen’ without the presence of Mercury or retired bassist John Deacon.

Since he passed away in November 1991, many have tried to fill Mercury’s shoes. Some (George Michael at the Wembley Tribute Concert) have made a much better go of it than others (Jesse J at the Olympics). But even the best have struggled to truly capture Freddie’s campness, charisma and vocals without straying into imitation territory. Until more
