    What a ridiculous, convoluted review!

    Should have stopped with the headline.

  18. adamized says:

    Morning Ron. I read the review early this morning and wondered what folks would have to say. I think I get what the writer way trying to say. Odd that he felt that Adam wasn’t quite yet incorporated into the band enough to be a true front-man. For those of us whom have witnessed the progression of where he was when he first sang with them at the EMAs and where he is now it is hard to see any lack of confidence or incorporation. OTOH, I believe that the new configuration of Queen isn’t about having a front-man with a band but instead having an iconic band composed of hugely talented people including Adam Lambert. It is something new which will be constantly changing. Too bad he couldn’t have seen it for that instead of worrying about how it may have compared to what is once was.

  19. TLKC says:

    One of the interesting things about that review is that he thinks that a possible solution to the problem of Adam fitting with Queen is for Adam to record with the band. He wouldn’t be saying that if he was a knee-jerk Queen fan.

    The review is a reflection of the writer’s ambivalence – he says something nice, then he pulls back, then he does it again and again.

    We all bring baggage to a concert. Our baggage is a full complement of Louis Vuitton luggage in all available sizes and colours, full of reality-transcending sights, moments, sounds and memories of Adam. This guy is carrying a 1980’s vintage set, which is missing a couple of key pieces, in his head. And he’s having a hard time putting the two together.

    After reading through queenonline the last few days, he sounds like a fan to me.

  20. TLKC says:

    Pics are great! Someone flashed him, seriously?

    Calgary is probably in transit right now, lucky girl! Having the time of her life, isn’t she?

    Sounds as though they are clamping down on the good cameras. Cry

  21. luval says:

    Love this picture. They are having fun!

  22. rs says:

    Sounds as though they are clamping down on the good cameras.

    What does this mean??? I am already debating which camera to bring. I don’t want to be left without any Pain

  23. Ron says:

    Hi rs Hug Right

    I’m going to phone Air Canada Centre for you and try to find out what the policy is regarding cameras for Queen + Adam Lambert.

    I’ll look after that today and get back to you. Kiss

  24. luval says:

    This is great

    @pipebetanc: @DrBrianMay @adamlambert Brian! On my way from Medellín Colombia to L.A. California just to see the Queen + Adam Lambert Show!!

  25. luval says:

    This is from Edmonton but I had to bring it here since we are all here. Look at his face at the end!!!!

  26. rs says:

    Thanks ron. You are a love Heart I am planning on getting a new camera before I leave. It isn’t a big DSLR, but not a little point and shoot either, so I am a bit concerned. It is more like the cameras that Suz used when she videoed Adam’s shows.

  27. Axxxel says:

    @Luval. wow that look… It is about 90 % intensity but I notice some 10 % bemusement.. like a dare/challenge…

  28. Axxxel says:

    I don’t know what happened to me, I used to be so impressed by ” the show must go on” but now I feel it is just so-so… However: ” Somebody to love”, ” Don’t stop me now” and of coure WWTLF still steal the show for me… Hope they will perform “Dragon Attack” and “I want to break free” once they leave the American Continent…

  29. Axxxel says:

    Thank you very much for the great review Calgary !!

  30. Ron says:

    Hi rs!

    Just got off the phone will a Fan Services Rep at Air Canada Centre for special events/concerts.

    No video or audio recording devices.

    Non-flash cameras are allowed but up to, and not exceeding, 75mm.

    I hope that this fits in with your plans.

  31. AL says:

    Starting to add videos above. There is a playlist link also of all videos so far from the concert.

    If you have a chance, check out the Edmonton thread. Mieps recorded “Love Kills” in HD and it is now included with the videos there.

  32. Calgary says:

    Axxxel Same for me. The songs you cited, plus Love Kills (and BoRhap)were incredible. TSMGO, and a few of the earlier songs were also – in Calgary – diminished by the noise of the band; Adam’s voice was hard to hear.

  33. Calgary says:

    As for cameras – they were really strict. I didn’t see any around us – just smartphones and mini-pads. Everyone had to go through a security check like those things at the airports. My bag was searched and the guy wanted me to dump my juice but I persuaded him he hadn’t seen it!

  34. Calgary says:

    TLKC My flight is way delayed Big Frown and I have two choices: go to the airport and hope to see the band Grin or stay here and learn how to use Instagram!

  35. ultimathule says:

    Ron – the comments in that article are really funny.

  36. Axxxel says:

    @Calgary…thank you for your explanation…now I understand more…

  37. Axxxel says:

    @ultimathule: hope we Glamberts will be kind to those who will be covering Adam’s own songs one day…

  38. ultimathule says:

    If that occasion arises, Axxxel – think ALLers here, who’ve been through Adam’s travails, will be extra special thoughtful.

    ADAM LAMBERT ✔ @adamlambert

    Just posted a photo

  42. AL says:

    Now – this is a great one –

    Had to register to get to read the article – hate having to do that but I broke down!
    But I am glad that I did – here’s a quote from the blog

    If you hate the idea of a band moving on, that’s fair enough. Your albums aren’t going anywhere; you can hold on to your memories of past concerts. But don’t feel that your fandom makes you the custodian of the band’s legacy, and don’t ever think that you’re entitled to make demands of those musicians because saw them back in the day. A band isn’t a democracy; this one’s a monarchy, and it’s found its heir. Long live the Queen.

  43. rs says:

    Thanks ron the new camera has a zoom up to 600mm! I think that I had better bring the little point and shoot. I am close in Toronto, so it should be OK,

  44. ultimathule says:

    Love that pic, asif – boy knows the great ones.
