Oh yeah, dude has pipes. Thats always been true. Unless he murdered your family, I'm not sure why anyone would deny that. Its just not Queen. But dude can definitely sing. Sure, its kinda Broadway style, but I like Broadway so I have no gripes with him. I just more couldn't care less about a Queen show without Freddie Mercury. I'd love to see Brian May playing a smaller place under his own name. Even without a Freddie/Lambert singer. Just play the music. Brian can sing, he has a great voice himself, and could play acoustic and electric and I'd love it. But hearing him try to redo Queen isn't super interesting to me.

Yeah, agreed RollingFreak. Adam is very talented, but it's not Queen. It's not his fault, but it's just not Queen without Freddie. If they went out on the road under another name I could get behind it.

If I could see Brian and Roger, and preferably John on board...oh man. One of my all-time favorite Queen songs is "Dragon Attack" from the 'The Game' (and of course "Another One Bites The Dust" and "Play the Game" from the same album are no slouches either), and to hear all three of those guys jamming away on those in a smaller theater, I'd be there in a heartbeat.

queen broke up in 1991 when freddie died.

if you can replace freddie and be the same band you can replace anyone in history to do the same thing, its not possible, queen dont exist anymore, dont matter how good the replacement singer is.
i used to like queen but the more i got into the stones, pink floyd, the doors the more i realize queens rock music is quite bland at times, its loud and heavy but it aint no exile on main street or light my fire, i loved queens more subtle sounds, killer queen, dont stop me now, radio gaga etc.

Queen without Mercury is like the Grateful Dead without Jerry, the Doors without Jim Morrison or Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers without Tom Petty. Would the Stones be the Stones without Mick? No. Not the same band, its fine if they tour but it is not the same band. Can they and should the remaining members tour and play the same music, sure if they want to but it is not the same thing.

I've seen Q&AL live a couple of times now and - a bit like the recent Fleetwood Mac incarnation - it's great as long as you don't think about it too much. Brian still plays phenomenally well, his playing went off the rails a bit toward the end of the Paul Rodgers era but he's as good as ever these days. Go see one of rock's best guitarists playing one of rock's best songbooks, and don't let Roger's slow drumming or Adam's theatrics take away from it.

I saw a rig rundown with Spike, their keyboard player, the other day, where he revealed he uses a vocoder to thicken up the backing vocals. I was actually really pleased to hear this, as I'd long been convinced they were on tape. Nice to see they're not.

My only actual gripe with the show is the number of shortened versions they play. Granted, they get in almost 30 songs in the set, but quite a few are first verse + chorus + solo and then straight into another one.

Well, since I resurrected this thread yesterday, it seems Brian lost his cool with an Australian news crew while signing autographs for fans:

I get his frustration, but public figures have to be able to navigate these tricky waters tactfully. Putting hands on someone or their equipment is a bad look.

Hmm. Think I would take Brian's side on this. I believe we're missing part of the reason why he lashed out. Also, it looks like he was truly upset to have to get physical.

Brian went vegan for his News Years resolution...maybe he was just hankering for a good steak!

I'm an ass. I didn't see a damn thing wrong with his response. He asks for it to be put away, the guy doesn't. Then he tries again, Brian says "@#$%& stop". So then the guy pulls out his phone, which they're now saying "its personal, he's a Queen fan! Its what any guy would do!" Well yeah, but also every guy doesn't also before that start by having a professional camera. If you're with the professional camera crew that Brian said to put away, you then don't get to pull out your personal phone, because understandably Brian is like "they're just gonna use cell phone footage for the news."

He was 100% right, asked them nice-ishly many times, until finally unloading, and unfortunately not going further with the guy. @#$%& them and Brian handled it properly, even apologizing to the other people afterwards for his actions. Class act. Yeah, you're a celebrity and that comes with the territory, but when they ask you nicely to do something for god sake what's the harm in listening? They're giving you their time when they don't have to.

I hate that too, but I think in fairness, Queen has always done that even with Freddie. It was a major thing they'd do in the past. I never really loved it.

In the grand scheme of things, Brian was in the right and he didn't REALLY do anything wrong...

...but he gave those idiots TMZ material, and he should be smarter than that. I know how infuriating those people can be, but you can't give them what they want.

True, but you explode sometimes. Who really cares if TMZ catches them in a weak moment. As long as he's not yelling something thats gonna get him in trouble it really means nothing. Just don't say like "this is why I hate gay people like you" or something and you're fine.

I'm going to see Queen in February I just hope the concert is better than that awful Bohemian Rhapsody movie I gave the DVD away,it was crap

FYI, that response right there is most people. Going to see QUEEN. Not Queen+Adam Lambert, not Brian May (which is really what you're going to see). They, in their minds, think they are going to QUEEN. And that to me, feels wrong and strange. Even though if they enjoy it I won't stop them obviously. I just don't think its correct at all.

It's advertised as Queen + Adam Lambert. Everyone knows what they're getting and we all understand how deeply and irrevocably intertwined Freddie Mercury is with Queen. I'll bet people would still go and see our boys if Mick was replaced?

i saw a queen tribute band back in 1992, they were great, but they never called theirselves queen and never pretended they were queen, the name queen shouldnever be used in relation to any music band, queen are finished and have been for a long time.

Well, I don't know about the whole "Mick being replaced thing", but I agree with you otherwise.

Freddie is dead...we all know it. Queen isn't coming back...this is Queen + Adam Lambert. Honestly, just adding "+ Adam Lambert" to their name is more than almost any other band does when a crucial member is missing.

I don't need 20 people in a row telling me that it isn't Queen without Freddie. I simply posted a video because I was extremely impressed with Lambert's pipes while covering Whole Lotta Love.

I also thought no way this Queen incarnation could be anything great. Saw them in 2015 and changed my opinion. In 2017 it was hard for me to say and still is... that it was better than The Stones. Believe me this pains me more than you reading it, and I'm not a huge Queen fan compared to The Stones, not even close. If anyone here sort of likes them I recommend you get out there and see it for yourselves. I suspect you won't be disappointed.

"I never got Queen or understood the attraction. If I was a spy/secret agent or high ranking government official and was captured by any of my sworn enemies or evil doers. All they would have to do is lock me in a room play Queen at an excessive volume for an hour or so and I would give up all the Top Secret information they wanted. I would rat out all my friends and colleagues I would even give up the codes to the Nukes.

Since I am not a niether of the above and just an insignificant nobody I will put it in simpler terms. I would rather have a Root Canal performed with an oyster fork than listen to Queen because the pain is on the same level."
