I do love this new album. But having been at both TOH and QAL shows, there is a difference, which Rose is pointing out. I think that music has just changed, and it is what it is...
I'm pleased that Adam is radio-friendly now...

I think that a big part of that euphoria---at least, on the audience's part (and we know that Adam always feeds off the energy of the crowd)--- is due to the familiarity of most of the Queen songs themselves. People like what they know, and the fact that many in the audience would have grown up with these songs must surely make a huge difference in how they react to hearing them. (Of course, it helps that Adam sings them brilliantly!)

I also feel that while there are a handful of Queen songs that show off Adam's voice like none other, plenty of his own music (and I don't just mean the songs he's co-written) also exploits his voice pretty spectacularly ::smile:: And that includes his latest album, of which he's only really scratched the surface so far in live performances. Just wait till the full TOH concerts come along!!

I do agree....when the audience knows the music...as with the Queen songs.....

They react in a more exciting way.....if done well....as Adam does !!

If Adam were not as dynamic as he is when he performs these 'known' songs....the Queen audience would not enjoy it at all .....

Adam's strength is in his live performances...He owns the stage & the audience ::wub:: ...

IMO....with current pop music....most artists seem to restrict themselves while performing their music....to the exact sound that is on the released single.....Adam has done that as well with TOH performances.

There was a big difference in Adam's Ghost Town/Queen version....that other Ghost Town performances we have seen to date....IMO !!!

That live performance...with out being confined by the backing tracts....allowed Adam & Queen to give a natural explosive flow to that song ??? It was amazing !!!

I think when Adam is building TOH tour....He & his band will become more familiar with each other.....creating a higher energy performance !!
Can't wait for ....TOH tour !!! ::thumbsup:: ::thumbsup:: ::wub::
It is what it is !!! It ain't that deep !!!!

I am comparing the feeling that rock or high energy songs bring out vs many songs on TOH. I just used Queen as an example. I also agree with those who have said that familiarity has an effect. Adam singing Strut, Shady, Treaspassing, Cukoo, Fever, Pop That Lock, etc. all produce a much more energetic feeling then many songs on TOH. Adam will just have to accept that he won't have that same exchange of energy during many of the TOH songs. His audience will be quieter but that wont mean that they are not enjoying the songs. The cheers at the end will be important and also when the audience is singing along no matter what the song is will help the energy level.

Adam has reiterated more times than I can count during TOH promo that this album IS melancholy. Fans that will attend TOH forth coming tour KNOW that going forward. This is not a bad thing, just a different flavor we will get to taste of his voice.

I do not ever think that his audience will be more quite for TOH tour. It is an impossibility that I cannot fathom. I will concede that there will be quite ~moments as there were with Soaked on GNT and Stay from WAG. Quiet moments to me are another flavor too.

Adam has historically divided his tour shows into specific parts or acts if you will. He has a big opening, a subtler middle and an uplifting ending. He will more than likely plan TOH tour that way also. So IMO the melancholy songs will have a place in the middle.

Adam, now also has a catalog of work to pull from. He will more than likely pick favorites from the past and keep the show jumping and high energy. TOH has very high energy songs too. The Light, Evil In The Night, Ghost Town, These Boys, and Another Lonely Night are high energy IMO.

I just respectfully don't agree that the audience will be quiet and observe his voice and physical beauty. None of his tours, one off shows, or TV performances prove that to be true. And he would never IMO want his audience to do that. ::smile::

I don't disagree with you, we were just discussing why Adam should include the bonus songs, especially Shame and These Boys to liven things up without having to go too far into his old catalog. I personally just really look forward to hearing him sing these songs live.

I think the tour performances can be higher energy than what we have already seen however, I think that will depend a lot on the band. Brian May knows how to ratchet up the instrumentals in a performance and interact with Adam in an enjoyable, spirited manner.

Adam's backup band members have been using backing tracks and minimal instrumentation. It is not just Adam's performance that will liven things up, the band needs look like they are also enjoying and involved in the performance.

With that said, we also don't want band members interfering with the performance with their own idiosyncrasies, hogging the stage or looking totally bored like we have seen in the past! ::wacko::

To be fair reason Queen produces that ecstasy, is familiarity. They are from a classic era, they completely contrast the current music scene. Also its rock, so its purley pure and raw. Adam is doing pop, so could say has not resonated, has not had the time. Look at Katy Perrys hits, can we say she produces that same energy? No her pop songs are no different, all pop is. Adam is prob the only music artist in the world, who can switch between genres, and nail all of them.
