Review: Queen + Adam Lambert

When most people think of Queen, they think of Freddie Mercury. But now that Freddie's not around and the band are touring with Adam Lambert, are they still worth a ticket? You bet they are.
Last night, Queen – plus Lambert – played the first of their two New Zealand shows to a packed Vector Arena in Auckland.
Lambert was no Freddie, and he didn't try to be. He sang the band's songs in his own style, whilst staying true to the original melodies.
His fierce and theatrical attitude, impressive vocal range and superb glam rock voice proved he was an appropriate artist for the band to work with – it amazes me how someone who had their career take-off after American Idol can end up fronting Queen.

Marc Martel Praises Adam

Ex Queen Extravaganza Member Marc comments on Adam

Quote :
Martel's gig with the Queen Extravaganza led to high-profile performances on shows like Ellen and American Idol. When Queen announced several shows and then a tour with former Idol runner-up Adam Lambert, he watched with bemusement as Internet skirmishes flared between fans of the two singers over which was the better interpreter of Mercury's songs.

"In my opinion, Queen has the current best male singer in the world singing for them," Martel says of Lambert. "I went to see their show in New York, and the dude does not strain or miss a single note. He's an incredible virtuoso.

"When people get so emotional and defensive — and offensive — about this whole thing, the first gut reaction to is to get defensive yourself, but it's just rock and roll. It's fun. I enjoy it." the article in full
