Everything about the concert was excellent! Brian May and Roger Taylor are still as talented as ever, as witnessed by the guitar and drum solos. And Adam Lambert is an amazing talent. He is a showman and a performer but he also has an extraordinary voice. The show opened with “Keep Yourself Alive” and “Killer Queen” and then Lambert spoke to the audience to address the “pink elephant in the room,” as he called it. He said “I am not Freddie Mercury. I f---ing know, because there will only be one Freddie Mercury. There’s no replacing him. All I’m here to do tonight is celebrate Freddie and carry the torch for Freddie. And I hope I’m making him proud.” He then performed “Don’t Stop Me Now”. Adam Lambert is not Freddie Mercury but he can definitely hold his own.
