The singer is currently touring Great Britain with iconic rock legends, Queen—filling their late great frontman, Freddie Mercury’s platform boots—and he has even the most hardened, cynical critics raving!
On Monday night, Lambert performed for a second night in front of a sold-out crowd at the 20,000 capacity O2 stadium, and, in news that will come as no surprise to legions of ever-loyal Glamberts, the 32-year-old SLAYED it!
“Cocky, camp and swaggering, Lambert was both a Mercury clone and his own man who wore black nail polish and tartan trousers without losing too much dignity,” The Evening Standard’s John Aizlewood raved.
“He crooned Killer Queen draped over a chaise lounge, fanning himself. He thundered his way through I Want It All and Seven Seas Of Rhye and he skittered across Crazy Little Thing Called Love. He almost got away with the toe-curling horror of Fat Bottomed Girls. Mercury will not be turning in his grave.”
Concluding, Lambert is an, “all-guns blazing rock machine!”
“It was Lambert’s own virtual duet with [Freddie Mercury] on Bohemian Rhapsody that truly showed how well his vocals compete with the great man himself,” The Telegraph’s Catherine Gee opined. “The 32-year-old’s talent is truly staggering, with a range, clarity and tone that make him one of the world’s great vocalists.
“His captivating performance saw four costume changes—opening the show clad in black studded leather and closing in a leopard print suit and bejewelled crown. May even got in on the fun during the encore, emerging in a gold lamé poncho.”
“No one will ever be able to replace Freddie Mercury, this much we know,” she continued. “But there’s currently no one else who could better fill his shoes and put on such a spectacular show as Adam Lambert.”
Amen to that!
Whether liberal or conservative, Chris Pratt's politics are apparently the most important thing in the world...
This is an incredibly consequential time in American history.
With less than two weeks left until the 2020 presidential election, the future of the nation hangs in the balance, and it all hinges on one essential question: Which side is Chris Pratt on?
Lack of star power and corporate backing is causing the show to lose steam.
With the entire world stuck at home sheltering in place, musicians have had to resort to entertaining fans (and themselves) virtually.While some entertained the weary masses in the form of TikTok videos and Instagram challenges, others went as far as performing concerts and DJ sets from the comfort of their homes. But it would be the platform created by super producers Swizz Beatz and Timbaland that would become the frontrunner in quarantine entertainment.
On March 24, Verzuz was born as a showdown between accomplished artists, songwriters, and producers playing their most popular songs against each other in the spirit of friendly competition. Instagram Live would act as the battleground for the clash of musical titans. Swizz and Timbaland would not only serve as the masterminds of the series but its inaugural battle participants.
