Queen with Adam Lambert Concert in Philly Review
This summer will go down in history as the summer I experienced the concert of a life time, Queen with Adam Lambert. I was able to find amazing seats using ScoreBig.com, a ticket website that can save you up to 60% on the concerts and events you want to see.......
Musical legends and original members of the British rock band, Brian May and Roger Taylor joined forces with Season 8 American Idol runner up Adam Lambert for this summer's tour. May said in his March 6th interview with Rolling Stone, "This is the closest that you'll ever get to see Queen as it was in our golden days, but it's not a reproduction. It's not an imitation. We're here live and real and we have a great singer. They'll be a lot of newness about this. I think that's very exciting. It'll be loud and dangerous and all the things that people used to look for in us."
I've been a Queen fan ever since I was seven, jamming in my Aunt's car in the parking lot of a local mall. She'd just purchased a Queen Greatest Hits album in honor of the passing of Freddie Mercury. Flash forward to this summer, I arrived at Wells Fargo Center this mid-July, with an unrelenting smile, mascara huge, glitter in my hair and totally ready to rock. Our seats were right along the side of the stage, within a stone's throw of the band's sound system. I spent the hour before the show giggling and admiring the dozen or more guitars just across the walkway being prepped for Brian May.
My husband pointed out the crazy range of ages throughout the audience. There were many old timers, completely decked out in Queen gear and every other age you could imagine right down to a ten year old who wore a sparkling Adam Lambert t-shirt. It seemed like everyone was there. The younger Adam Lambert fans were strewn throughout the stands, but I wondered how those who were not so familiar with the American Idol runner up, the original Queen fans, would take to his singing lead for their beloved band.
The performance did not disappoint - at all. In fact, it was everything and more than I hoped. Though I never had the chance to see Mercury live, there's really no reason to compare the two singers. As May stated, they're not trying to reproduce the original Queen. Lambert is his own thing, bringing a new voice - a powerful one - to Queen, while honoring and paying tribute to what once was. Of course, Lambert brings a theatrical element that is all his own and reminiscent of the flamboyant Mercury, walking the stage like a cat in crazy heeled shoes, studded and sparkling jackets, sunglasses, a shiny gold microphone and my personal favorite, the amazingly glittery diamond crown for the last song. When Adam hopped up on the balcony that hovered over our section and waved at me, I nearly fainted. Even in heels, he is drop dead gorgeous. When he hit those high notes, it felt like my head didn't have room to contain the sound and I had to shake my head to relieve the pressure. Judging from the reactions of the audience, he'd won over a ton of new fans.
Brian May and Roger Taylor gave amazing performances, too. They were total legends, owning the stage in their own right. May, with a camera strapped to the top of his guitar, showed the audience on the big screen, just how talented he still is at sixty-seven years old. May's interpretation of Mercury's "Love of My Life" was one of the most touching performances I've ever seen. His appreciation for the audience and of his former band mate was so genuine. The memories made that night were many ...Rock on!
