There have been so many almost-great reviews, but none of them have raved the way we fans know they should. Queen has been outstanding, and Adam Lambert has shown all of the doubters that he’s a powerhouse on stage.
Here’s a review from serious fanboy Steven S Shaw for My Hyper Reality, that really brought satisfaction and peace to me. Let us know what you think too! I’ll start it below, but please click on the link for the whole piece. It’s filled with lots of great videos and pictures. And read some comments – you’ll be with your Glamily!

Concert Review: On Queen’s New Tour, Adam Lambert Steals the Stage!
Freddie Mercury may have passed away nearly 23 years ago, but his spirit is 1,000% present as Queen takes the stage with American Idol finalist the bone-chilling-jaw-droppingly talented Adam Lambert on their new international tour, billed as Queen + Adam Lambert. Walking into the Mohegan Sun arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, it was impossible not to feel the energy and excitement stemming from eager concert-goers. There were many in old Queen concert tees, but what shocked me the most was the vast age range of fans, all of whom ready to celebrate Mercury’s untouchable legacy.
The show opened with a duo of songs from their 1974 album Sheer Heart Attack, “Now I’m Here” and “Stone Cold Crazy,” respectively, and within the first new notes of the former, it was clear that Adam Lambert had been rebranded a rock God; his voice crescendoed and pierced through the audience and if there was anybody who might’ve been doubtful of Lambert’s vocal prowess — and ability to do justice to one of the greatest male voices in the history of recorded music — they were quickly turned a believer.
It was immediately clear that, although Lambert is not Freddie Mercury, he never claimed to be. He put his spin on a collection of Rock n’ Roll’s most treasured songs and proved that he is not only an exceptional talent, but a force to be reckoned with. These were some of the reactions from people within ear shot: “Wow, he’s amazing! I never would have guessed!” and “He fuckin’ rocks! Freddie would be proud!”
Some might even say that Lambert was made to front the greatest glam rock band of all-time; or, at the very least, in Mercury’s absence, was perfectly retrofitted for a job that was filled long before he was born.
