This is a wonderful read, please don't miss it! It has a wonderful slide show of pictures!

http://www.blakemore-noble.net/gigs/queen-adam-lambert-hammersmith-apollo-london/

Which just leaves the major question. How was Adam?

Wow! His voice is absolutely stunning, no other way to describe it. He has considerable power and a huge vocal range – that guy can SING. He did justice to all the songs, making very good work of the entire selection of songs. He did not try to imitate Freddie, he did not try to pretend to be Freddie. He was clearly his own man, performing the songs in his own style, but in keeping with the overall feel of Queen. He brought a lot of youthful playfulness as well to the show. My only criticism was that he was not as ‘dynamic’ as one might have liked. However, it is important to remember that we are talking about someone with very limited live experience – if we are going to make the tedious inevitable comparisons with Freddie, then let’s remember that Adam has been in the music business for only 3 years; when Freddie had been in the music business for 3 years, Queen had not even released their first album yet (that would be a year later). Of course Adam doesn’t compare in terms of stage presence with Freddie of the mid 1980′s, but then again neither would the Freddie with 3 years experience. I believe that with appropriate training and apprenticing, Adam could go on to develop quite the stage presence, he just needs the experience. He certainly managed to work the crowd well, everyone seeming to thoroughly enjoy themselves; certainly the people I spoke to afterwords were very happy to have been there.

CC - I am so glad you agree that Adam has the better voice. I didn't want to get veggies thrown at me, but damn - Adam just has the most amazing voice!

Adam does have an amazing voice but so did Freddie. I really don't think it's fair to compare them even though it is going to happen. They both have signature voices. IMO one is not better than the other. They are both unique and gifted artists. I don't think it's fair to compare.

Back to catch up more on the show................

It's perfectly fair. People compare things all the time.

I really don't get the reviewer who says that Adam isn't dynamic enough on stage. Shocked

What is he supposed to do, hang from a chandelier? I have noticed that since he is not performing alone, he defers to whomever he is singing with; i.e., he doesn't work to have all the focus on him as he does as a solo singer. Even then, he always gives credit to the band. It's very subtle, but noticeable if you are really attuned to Adam when he is performing.

Freddie voice had a very special lovely huskiness probably the product of his smoking, he was smoker, Adam voice is trained and crystal clear.

I too prefer Adam voice.
