Queen with Adam Lambert Concert Review [Photos]

Last Thursday I had a chance to see Queen one more time in my life at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX. The question on my mind was how well Adam Lambert would do in the lead vocal role, because let’s face it, no one can ever replace Freddie Mercury.

The answer is simple, he did a great job.

Adam’s vocal register is actually higher than Freddie’s and he doesn’t have that strong rock & roll growl in it that Freddie did, but again finding someone who is well-known and can run up and down the vocal range that Freddie possessed to perform those amazing Queen songs is no easy task. Adam did an admirable job indeed. Lambert also posses a significant flare and showmanship that needs to be a part of a Queen show. Maybe a little over the top at times, but I would frankly rather have a little too much than not enough.

There was also a few points in the show where Freddie was doing the vocal work on the big screen and much homage was paid to the long-departed frontman for the band. Probably not a dry eye in the house either. Yes, including mine! I’m getting more sentimental the older I get.

Drummer Roger Taylor and legendary guitarist Brian May pulled the sound of Queen together and rocked the Double A Center in Dallas that night. I can’t imagine anyone left feeling let down by the effort, it was in fact a fantastic show.
