LOUD HAILER MAGAZINE – August 14, 2019
Queen + Adam Lambert at the United Center in Chicago, IL
Queen and Adam Lambert reigned supreme for a night crammed with all the hits.
“Lambert pays homage and respect to the larger than life former frontman, whilst also including a lot of his own personality. He had all the required swagger and panache with a healthy dose of camp, and a vocal range to die for.”
“Freddie Mercury may be gone, but he is certainly not forgotten. It was impossible not to feel emotional at various points throughout the night. It felt at times as though Lambert was channeling him right there on the stage.”
“The music transcends time and remains as relevant today as it ever was, as evidenced by the span of ages in the audience.” “Throughout the night Taylor provides that thumping backbeat and May expertly knocks out those iconic Queen riffs in that unmistakable tone that regularly makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck.” “This is much more than some kind of simple “tribute” show, and a great deal of credit should go to Lambert for that.
Throughout the night he expertly walks the tightrope between honoring the legacy of Freddie and putting his personal stamp on things. As a result, the band still feel vital.”
“Queen will indeed still rock you if you let them, and we’d suggest that you do.”
