Reviews: Philadelphia and Boston


More reviews from Philadelphia and first review Boston:

Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders

Philadelphia, PA

“At the cavernous Wells Fargo Center, before a screaming, sold out crowd, Queen genuinely touched me, just when I needed it most.” – WXPN-FM: THE KEY

“The pensive, breathtakingly operatic “Who Wants to Live Forever” paired with May’s balming “Last Horizon” guitar piece that was absolutely heart stopping and sensual in the most tactile sense of the word.” – WXPN-FM: THE KEY

“A tender hearted “Love of My Life,” one of Mercury’s most brusied lost-love songs, was performed as a solo acoustic number by vocalist May and suddenly turned into something more: about missing a friend, a soulmate, someone with whom you shared everything.” – WXPN-FM: THE KEY

“[Lambert’s] clarion-clear and powerful vocal highs were only rivalled by his obviously elegant lower range, a tenor voice ranging three octaves with a B2-B5 semitone, in comparison to the late Mercury and his possessing a range of F#2-G5 — just over three octaves, heading into four octave range.” – WXPN-FM: THE KEY

“With Adam Lambert handling the lead singer spot, guitarist Brian May played like a beast, while drummer Roger Taylor shook the area with his drums.” – 6ABC

“The show was bold, big, colorful, and everything you would expect from a Queen show. It is safe to say the Queen with Adam Lambert lived up to the hype, as well as the bands historic legacy.” – 6ABC

“They brought a larger than life production along with them for their biggest tour yet including big vibrant visuals perfectly matching each song, elaborate attire, lasers, a disco ball, crown that rose to the top of the stage and a blistering rock show full of anthemic hit songs.” – MUSIC MAYHEM MAGAZINE

“During “Fat Bottom Girls” the sold out crowd seen the Philadelphia Eagles cheerleaders on stage shaking their pom pom’s along to the beat of the song which fans seemed to really enjoy the addition to the already extraordinary one-of-a-kind concert from a truly iconic rock band.”- MUSIC MAYHEM MAGAZINE

“Lambert definitely living up to the hype of being the bands frontman for the last several years with impeccable vocals and stage presence similar to Queen’s late frontman, Freddie Mercury, as well as helping to keep the bands historic legacy alive and on the road for fans to adore” – MUSIC MAYHEM MAGAZINE Boston, MA “As the curtain raised to the thunderous applause coming from Mansfield’s sold out crowd of 19,900, the 37-year-old Lambert and Queen’s “two legends” marked their arrival with a trio of rocking tunes from Queen’s early days.” – WORCESTER TELEGRAM & GAZETTE

“Taylor took center stage to pound the skins and sing his heart out during “I’m in Love With My Car,” the B-side of “Bohemian Rhapsody” and a running gag in the film “Bohemian Rhapsody.” I guess Taylor gets the last laugh.” – WORCESTER TELEGRAM & GAZETTE

“May also took the audience on a trippy tour of our solar system. Looking like he was standing on top of a meteor floating in the cosmos, May squeezed out mournful cries out of his guitar before being engulfed by a virtual reality meteor shower and elaborate laser light show.” – WORCESTER TELEGRAM & GAZETTE

“[Bohemian Rhapsody] This rousing, head-banging opus was, arguably, the most invigorating number of the evening, serving both as a tribute to Freddie Mercury and a testament to Queen’s staying power.” – WORCESTER TELEGRAM & GAZETTE
