I hope its not filmed... Even one fully filmed show is too much... There is that apocalyptic danger of releasing it!


Freddie is irreplaceable, but Q+PR were great! Q+AL are disaster. :(

Oh dear dear me, ptr. How can anything you say be taken seriously when you have the tagline that Queen and the ludicrously inappropriate Paul Rodgers were great?

Adam Lambert is the best thing that has happened to this band in 21 years. Unlike Rodgers, he has the right range, tones, control, vocal style, performance style for Queen's music. Most importantly for me, as a fan, Brian and Roger are the guys of old with him on stage and not the old guys they were with Rodgers who always looked on stage as if he'd rather be anywhere else.

I disagree. AL is not well suited to Queen or any band for that matter, he suits himself. I don't know which shows you were at for QPR but I did 35 shows 2005-2008. Paul very much enjoyed himself and his powerful voice fit well with Queen-he was not there to act or sing like Freddie. Ive seen Paul dozens of times and I assure you he was having great fun at most of the QPR shows, there were a few when then whole band seemed like they wanted to be somewhere else, especially Brian. Brian looks really engaged for these shows..good to see. Everyone is entitled to thier opinion :)


2013 ..a Great Year in Queen

I'm excited for the few recently unearthed classics that are getting played in the show with Lambert. He does a decent job in most songs but is sometimes annoying (oh, the vibrato!).

Queen + Paul Rodgers was better in my opinion. It had more musical credibility and Paul made a few songs his own. Also, it was Queen's first tour in almost 20 years so it had that additional bang.

Saw them 5 times. The first time in Vienna 2005. They seemed nervous but excited with a lot of electricity in the air, an mistakes made on several songs. The last time I saw them was almost a year later in San Diego 2006. By that time they really owned the stage, played flawlessly and took it to another level (the great SD crowd helped a lot).

You shouldn't compare Q+PR with Q+AL. If you did, Q+PR would win, though :)

I've made no secret of the fact that I've never been a big AL fan. This said, I watched about 1/3 of the first show. Did this make me like AL any more? Well...no. He sounded alright for some of the songs, but his high pitch on some of the songs was more than I could take...Q+PR was great for what it was, it was supposed to be a different animal, and they made no secret of that. Same thing in this situation.

Did someone really try to say above that Lambert has control and performance style, or am I seeing things? (as they clearly are)

If Adam Lambert just controlled the squealing and scraching more. I would bet that in a few years AL will look back as though it was a rookie mistake

What a strange bunch of mixed haters of Adam,
Paul supporters vs nay-sayers, genuine connoisseurs of classic rock vs pretenders are we here, on Queen Zone! I'm new here and I don't know quite well its history. But it seems to me that in this hotch-potch somebody is missing, Freddie Mercury! Fighting bloody fights over who's best suited to front Queen, Adam or Paul(I don't even think of the Canadian guy) we forget the main character who had to be replaced. Those who were fans of Queen in the 70s and 80s do remember his special status amongst the other rockers , Plant, Gillan, Gilmour. He needed the patience of a Jesuit to prove himself, exactly for the same reasons Adam is disputed today:a strange persona , a different approach to music , theatricality .Trying to pass over your hate , have you ever thought that Brian and Roger chose Adam for exactly these reasons?

Just like nobody cares about ambiance and a witty maitre 'd when the food tastes like cardboard, nobody cares about Lambert's persona and theatricality. The reasons for choosing Mr. Ill Fitting are rather opaque, but seem to have in part centred around a lot of phone calls Brian allegedly got after the EMAs in Belfast with people excited "for that particular combination". What people? Who knows. Probably Ben Elton and Adam Lambert's mother. But it certainly aligns with the largely arbitrary and manufactured feel of the whole thing.

Not interested in Freddie ?!
It seems that few are really interested in others'
opinions, if you had read "he(=Freddie) needed the patience of...." free of prejudices and with more attention you would have already understood.
