If there ever were a pair of shoes that were near impossible to fill, they’d be the rhinestoned loafers of Freddie Mercury. The iconic rocker was as good as it gets, which is why we can’t be the only ones who were surprised (and a little nervous) when it was announced that American Idol vet Adam Lambert would take the stage with Queen and attempt to rock the house down.
Well, while nobody will ever do it better than Freddie, Adam is doing a bang up job.
Here’s a look at his glammed out glory:
And if you want to see him in action, here’s a full concert uploaded to YouTube:
He has already proven he can do Freddie justice through 24 shows with 95% positive media reviews and thousands of reviews/comments from skeptical Queen fans who actually attended and changed their minds about him. There is lots of proof of this on Twitter, Ticketmaster reviews, other reviews, and Queenzone, so if you try to say the opposite, you’re full of shit. And please don’t comment if you didn’t attend live. Videos never did his voice justice. I attended 4 concerts and the crowd loved him. No one left early like the purists would like to believe.
@vive: He has his own career too. He’s already had two world tours as a solo artist filling venues as large as 17K. His next album will be out next year and he is also an actor who received rave reviews for his five appearances on Glee. It’s been reported in the media that he is getting multiple offers for just his acting. He really can do it all.
@DeeJayMiles: Did you actually go to a show? If not, how can you comment?
@DeeJayMiles: Oh and Marc Martel is fugly (huge square head and looks like a cartoon character), no charisma or stage presence, and has a tiny, tiny fan base. Only 7K Twitter followers and the Queen Extravaganza did poorly in the US, with some small venues only filled 30%. I highly doubt he could have sold out Madison Square Garden and several other large venues like Adam did.
@tdx3fan: Did you actually see one of the concerts? Please tell me what songs and which notes he is “screaming”. 95% positive reviews in the media and thousands of skeptical Queen fans have changed their minds about Adam AFTER seeing him live. Anyone who hasn’t seen them live really doesn’t have a right to comment.
