Paul Rodgers impresses
Scene: Globen, Stockholm
As last encore comes “We are the champions”, an off Freddie Mercurys very most typical tunes and some of a trademark for the group Queen. Moreover an of those tunes one has wondered how in the whole world Paul Rodgers will can to sing.
But he does the to his, at least initially. The rat is little slower, assigned little lowly and he sings the as he has sung so many ballads through his career, especially the as was called “baths company”. He goes all the way from placid sad vote to showing the big sångarmusklerna in crescendot before the chorus. The is actually a remarkabel omstöpning, lets not at all particularlily krystat.
Late falls silent he. The chorus gets the audience to sing. And the group's all körsångare. Alone acts he more fan for the than song area off the.
The is a logical solution on a difficult musical problem, and impressing surely performed. And very awkward. Which is what precise man can to say about the whole that tour as reached Sweden on the very valborgsmässoafton.
To replace Freddie Mercury in Queen does not go of course like. The each therefore the group took up so definitivelily with his death 1991. And the is not neither the as Queen has done now. Not actually.
The does not have otherwise lacked candidates. Two of the most clear is Robbie William's and George Michael, both is stars in own names and established Queen-beundrare. Instead, the group chooses therefore an old bluesrocksångare.
Which is precise rightly intended. With each sångare that is the smallest bodies Freddie Mercury was the set-up sentenced to crash and to be changed to an exceptional lavish cover band. The becomes impossible with a man that Paul Rodgers.
He is an of coat history even definitely in front sångare, but to natura and temp era intended is he Freddie Mercurys contrast. Bluesig, shaded off and stable instead of teatralisk, eldfängd and neurotisk. A trite snubbe in simple t-shirt instead of an of coat history even most colourful scenpersonligheter. He jumps over most of it of average chat and publikfrierier in order to instead to do the job and to sing, unlike the Freddie Mercury that had unofficial world record in audience contact.
Not wonder on that man consistent market stem the the whole as Queen+Paul Rodgers. Carefully counted is the of course only half Queen that has reunited, the bass player John Deacon granted a pension to itself with Freddie Mercurys dead and has late its refused befatta itself with some off the group's activities. Irrespective of about the has applied to take towards some price, works with a Queen-musikal or to do some newly production välgörande purposes.
For Queen is a band in that the size class, especially home in England. Almost on Abba-nivå, a Bug in love profit machine that never has released the grip about the audience. Big parts of turnén became also utsåld in a jiffy, with Sweden and a two third fulfilled Glob as a clear exception.
Permanent the is actually another band. Out, the excessive is, that boiling one kitschigheten, the winter lair gang pastischerna. Instead, we get a coat band that concentrates itself on the musics. Concurrent as gitarristen Brian May and the barrel ice Roger Taylor gets bigger roles that sångare, with that their votes actual consults to that sound that where Queens.
But the is Paul Rodgers that actually impresses. Not only for modet to take itself an an information so sentenced to fail, without also in order to he copes with the with such resning. Most, he sings the coat tunes, the as lies near his common registers: “Tie your mother down”, “drums cur empty curse girls”, “in want it all”, “Crazy little thing called love”. He goes straightlily on them, with a vote that is equally strong and säker - faktiskt - as Freddie Mercurys. Does product only a to an u
