Heather and I saw Queen at a tiny show in Burbank yesterday! Here’s a BuzzFeed post I did about it:

Marie (and others), have you been following Queen fans today to see what they are saying?



Love2Lurk' date='Jun 17th 2014, 8:47 PM

I just quickly looked at Queenonline & QueenFB....

Both seemed to be mostly Glamberts going on about Love Kills.....in a good way...not OTT....

There were more Queen purists on FB...making snarky remarks....not as bad as usual though :rolleyes:

Most were complaining about ...the short set list....Paul could sing longer :rolleyes: :haha:


Silvia' date='Jun 17th 2014, 9:37 PM

Do they think the world concerts will be 45 min each? :haha:

I guess that's an improvement if that's what they are complaining about.

vampfever' date='Jun 17th 2014, 8:51 PM

This was in a thread regarding Love Kills. (Not on a Queen board, but on a Queen section of a board) The comments are rated most agreed with to the lowest. So the first comment is the most popular.

[–]snakers
Wow, he killed it. Perhaps I was able to enjoy it a bit more than Lambert's other Queen "covers" as a result of the fact that I have no live frame of reference.

[–]geekstone
I really liked it, and it seems like a new Queen song albeit one written by Freddie. I think it helped that it is "obscure" so they can put their own spin on it without being instantly being compared to the original lineup.I am starting to wonder if a new Queen + Adam Lambert album might not be such a bad idea. It can't be worse than The Cosmos Rocks.

[–]jakdak
Interesting spin on that one.
Did Queen ever play this song with Freddie?

[–]blamebravery [+1] 6 points 19 hours ago (6|0)
No

[–]jakdak
Wonder why they pulled that particular track out of Freddie's solo catalog.
[–]blamebravery Could be that they are putting it in the new album.

[–]jakdak
I hope not- the new albums was supposed to be the last remnants of the old Freddie material.
This should just go on the Q+A live album.

[–]blamebravery
If they do make a live recording of this tour I hope it's the one I go to. But what they did with love kills was good. I was not disappointed,

Just went back looking for the original version of that- forgot that they guitared it up for the version they put on "Great Pretender" and the original was just on the 1984 single from the Metropolis soundtrack.

I like the new Lambert spin on it, but think I still prefer the extended version of Freddie's original.

OK, so I got sick of people saying how obscure this song is because it's not and I actually remembered this song and that it wasn't a bad song at all.

Here's what the bible of all things (wikipedia :teehee: ) has to say

QUOTE
It was originally used in Giorgio Moroder's restoration and edit of the 1927 silent film Metropolis, as part of the movie's new soundtrack. The movie was nominated at the 1985 Razzie Awards for "Worst Original Score",[1] and the song itself was nominated for "Worst Original Song",[2] haha.gif even though the single reached #10 on the UK Singles Chart.


The song was also used for the closing credits of the movie Loaded Weapon 1.

So, while younger people might not know it, anyone who is a Queen fan should know it. :huh:

“Love Kills” June 16, 2014
“Love Kills” was written by Freddie Mercury And Giorgio Moroder in the mid 80s for the restoration of the 1927 silent film Metropolis. The song was not greeted with universal acclaim. ( And that’s putting it rather mildly) In fact it got a Razzie nomination for “Worst Original Song” in 1985. I think it has something to do with that funky (not in a good way) disco beat.
But on Monday the two original Queen band members, Brian May and Roger Taylor, together with the phenomenally talented Adam Lambert, kicked off their sold-out summer tour with a mini concert on IHeart Radio. They debuted this gorgeous re-interpretation of “Love Kills.” Surprise! It’s a good song. It’s got good bones. It has lyrical beauty and power, poignancy and a haunting melody.

[color=#CC0000]
For the first time in a long time, it feels like Queen really are back, regenerated into something distinct and exciting. And fans should be excited because Adam has helped Brian and Roger rediscover the spark that defined the band before Freddie's death. He's helped them become 'Killer Queen' all over again.


THIS is what we have been wanting for Adam!! I have to say something here about how significant Queen's (Brian & Roger's) very public praise and recognition of Adam - not to mention putting him front and center in the public eye by having him front Queen on a world tour - have done to elevate Adam in public and industry perception. Besides all the many delightful benefits to them in return, Brian and Roger have practically been on a crusade to make sure Adam got the recognition he deserved. I LOVE them for that!!! Now Adam can do what he does best and we can all enjoy the many "moments" that will ensue.

Love Kills gives me chills. Incredible! I think Queen + Adam may be showing up in some capacity at the Grammy's!! Just a hunch. Ladies & Gentlemen I think we can say that Adam has "arrived" and the tour has not even started.


Silvia' date='Jun 17th 2014, 11:43 PM

They are mythical musicians but I LOVE it that they seem like great human beings. It really feels great that you can adore an artist but also respect them as people. :wub:

There was something that Brian said today in an interview, when talking about Freddie singing "Love Kills". I forget the exact quote, but something that he said, for some reason, made me think that Adam will sing the song WITH Freddie, likely like Brian did in Europe in 2012, with "Love Of My Life".

Brilliant !!!

The RESPECT and LOVE is visible for all of them, including Rufus,Neil and Spike...

When I first listened to Love Kills last night it reminded me of Phantom of the Opera, and in my minds' eye , at the end, a rousing standing Broadway ovation!! :flowers:

Happy B'day Sylvia...what an QAL present :adamhappy:

Love Kills was a definitive shift in the evolution of Queen

Marie…you are our foundation here and just want to thank you again…and again …and again……..

this phrase is so freakin' special……it makes me verklempt, too……..i haven't had a chance to post after the concert (had to dash and run due to good old RL)…….but, like many of you, thought adam held back due to vocal concerns for Thursday….actually a no brainer…but the taste of iHeart has my salivatory glands in overdrive….LK was amazing….. was everything that adam has in his vocal arsenal ..high to lows and brilliant emotion……so loved the Grammy and this Click review……….do think that QAL is a pivotal career changer for him………maybe not regarding radio (but who knows?) but as an artist who stays true to himself and takes on one of the most charismatic frontman of all time with kudos from the media along with the tumbling purists who say " ok …i'm ready to eat humble pie"………this is really what it is all about…….RESPECT for an artist…. not $$$$ ….but guess what? …he will have it all……..and all of us here have known this since he was first into'd via AI….

so love this epic novel…but what i really heart.gif ……... it is not fiction!……adam you are a " vigueur pour tous les temps"….a "force for all time" (marie... hope i'm right grin.gif )…... thumbsup.gif wub.gif



Kudos to Marie and everyone for sharing all these goodies! :flowers: :flowers:

What a journey Adam has taken us on! Thank you for putting into words what we are all feeling, sealuv -
he is definitely fulfilling all our dreams for him, right now, with us along side for this wild, unbelievable ride with no limits.

Adam has a great voice, but to be a legend like Sinatra, Elvis, and Jackson, he needs hit songs and a lot of them. On his own, not with an already-famous band.

I'm happy QAL is doing well, but after this tour I'm hoping that Adam gets his album finished and out. He needs to get that done.

QUEEN + ADAM LAMBERT: Watching their iHeartRadio Theater performance
... and this solidifies it... they're hell-bent on global domination!
Posted Tuesday, June 17th 2014 @ 10pm

It's a rare thing for a band to find the kind of success which has found its way into the path of QUEEN.

It's even more rare for a musical talent to come along and pair with the iconic, not to replace an icon, but to force an iconic institution to evolve.

That's what Adam Lambert brought to Queen. A catalyst... creating something completely new, yet completely familiar...

... yet unlike anything the world has seen.


A bit of that magic was on display at the iHEARTradio Theater last night. Now, Queen + Adam fans alike are watching the resulting pairing like kids looking at a Christmas tree for the first time... full of wonder...

... which means this tour this summer will be magical.
