    Another great review from Kansas City from an old time Queen fan. Heart

    CONCERT REVIEW: Queen + Adam Lambert a royal tribute to Freddie

    -KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The last time Queen toured America with Freddie Mercury, I was 11 years old.
    ….. 
    -After Freddie’s death in 1991, bassist John Deacon retired.
    While George Michael’s cover of “Somebody to Love” gave me hope of a revamped Queen, that never happened. A later collaboration with ex-Bad Company vocalist Paul Rodgers was an odd fit stylistically.

    -That brings us to Adam Lambert of “American Idol” fame. During the Queen + Adam Lambert performance Sunday in Kansas City, he addressed the elephant in the room with equal parts respect and flamboyance: He’s not Freddie Mercury, and he doesn’t pretend to be.
    …..
    -Freddie was the greatest rock vocalist in history. The 35-year-old Lambert thankfully doesn’t mimic Mercury note for note — nor does he deliver with Mercury’s same powerful vocal command — but he add creative flourishes and sometimes, surprisingly, even shows off more range.

    ….. Good information here for non Queen fans … (as if) …

    -I was thrilled to see the remaining Queen members in concert for the first time. Virtuoso Brian May, who holds a doctorate in astrophysics, is one of my top five all-time guitarists, playing on his homemade “Red Special” guitar with a sixpence coin for a pick.
    Taylor once saw Frank Kelly Freas’ cover of “Astounding Science Fiction,” and this image of a robot holding the dead body of a man inspired artwork for Queen’s 1977 “News of the World” album cover.

    -That iconic robot was resurrected in Queen’s new live shows with Lambert.

    -With Lambert, Taylor performs the duet singing the late, great David Bowie’s vocals on “Under Pressure” in another homage to a fallen rock star.
    But the ultimate tribute is to Freddie. His spirit is memorialized in video spotlights, most notably in the ballad “Love of My Life,” in which May invites the audience in a heartwarming singalong with an acoustic guitar. It brought tears to my eyes.

    As Queen fans know, the bombastic, operatic interlude of “Bohemian Rhapsody” is always played in concert via recording. This time the video accompaniment was embellished with an extensive laser light show to great effect. With longtime live keyboardist Spike Edney playing Freddie’s piano parts, the band sounded great.

    -Since I missed seeing the original Queen lineup as a child, we taught our children a proper school of rock lesson for our family’s first arena rock concert. God save the Queen.

    My recaps … Warning: They might be all over the places. Some may not be incoherent. Heart Rose
    I’m not the same now. Adam blew up my mind and what’s not … AGAIN!!!
    Rolls Eyes Eek! Sweat Hypnotized

    On the concert day 6 of us .. DH, DD, DIL, 2 good friends who went to Thailand with us, and I walked into the bar … Oh! No! that was later … Rolls Eyes … we checked in to our hotel rooms.
    DD did a good job! Heart Yes Yes … We got the corner rooms with good views. I can see Sprint Center from my 9th floor.

    DH, DD and I had been to QAL in 2014 before the rest 3 were QAL virgins + the 5 tickets I gave away to the virgins. 2 tickets were not used because they couldn’t make it.
    It’s a shame to waste them. Frown

    We did some sight seeing around there. Saw many Queen fans and Adam’s fans at the hotel and around the arena. Judged from their t-shirts and the way they dressed.
    Heart

    At 6 pm our friends had to go pick up their son whose friend couldn’t make it. So DD, DIL and I (the three young chics) went to have a beer at Gordon Biersch and to do people watch at their patio. The place was packed. A lot of out of town people.
    Beer Beer Beer

    Every time the fans with Queen, Adam, QAL and glitter shirts walking by we smiled and thumbed up to them and they thumbed up to us.
    Heh! all three of us were wearing QAL t-shirts.

    Grin Grin Grin Yes Yes Yes Heart Heart Heart

    Later … got a call from DH and friends that they were back and ready to rumble.
    Party Listening to Music Music Note

    They met us at Gordon Biersch and went to the arena from there which was a minute away. We didn’t see the WBR protest or hear anything about them until the next day from the blogs. They were not even in the news.

    I was so excited … and happy Grin that I had my elastic waist pants on .. not jeans with buttons. Grin

    But no Depend though!!! Curse

    The lines to get into the arena were long but they moved very quickly. There were merchandise stands everywhere but long lines so I’ll wait during Brian Guitar Solo to get something. Heart Beer Present

    From the reviewers they said the size of the crowd was 13,000 people. But I think it was more … later on the venue was about 90% filled. You can see from some of the videos there.

    Kansas City is a good venue for fans from states around here and from the South. I met a few fans from other states and a few from Arkansas and Tennessee who we flailed together.

    It was so funny the guy from Tennessee who stayed at the same hotel with us couldn’t stop talking about Adam.
    He was a hard core Queen fan and had doubt about Adam but in the end he was a fan and respected Adam tremendously.

    Another one bites the dust!!!
    Grin Heart

  37. asifclueless says:

    WE ARE IN (and 2 are OUT, DD & DIL) Razz Silly

    Our seats are at the 100’s level, not on the floorbut one level up .. directly at the eye level of the tip of the trust on Adam’s right hand side. Great seats among fans. During the show most of them stood up. DD, DIL and I stood up the entire time.
    Heart Yes

    Later heard of peeps got upgraded to the front row in front of the trust on floor level at the same price we paid. Oh well! We didn’t want to take chance … right?
    Again … I never get to be close to Adam.

    It’s all good for his safety sake! Grin Wink ROTFL

    I love QAL 2014 but let me tell you ….

    This time QAL 2017 is bigger, better, and TIGHTER!

    The production, the setting, the lighting, and the set list are so superb. You all will love it.
    Our friends couldn’t stop talking about it.
    Everything is all first class and EPIC!

    Heart Star Star Star Star Star Rose Yes In Love Music Note Rainbow Heart

    When I watched bits and pieces of the 1st show in Phoenix I was disappointed and didn’t like the new show that much. But show after show later the band and Adam got better and better each show. We know that!
    Grin Heart

    And to be at the LIVE show myself … nothing can capture that LIVE experience. Heart

    Adam’s clothes got better and tighter … more rocker now than Liza’s show. (Some haters said that Liza’s show.)
    OOOOH … and those tight, tight, tight leather pants … and the zipper pants. Hypnotized Sweat Eek! Evil Grin

    Mils …. Yes, they were tight but I was far away from the stage. So I missed all the goodies. Grin

    So you guys … beware … I guess most of you will be in front of Adam and the trust. Heart

    My friend later mentioned about those tight tight leather pants … red, black, glittery ones …
    She said they looked like they were painted on.
    How did Adam get them on?
    I had to bite my tongue before saying something that we would have said here to her. I’m known for my reserve and propper. …. NOT …. here. Grin
    I just casually said that … “I would love to be his assistant in costume changing.” Wink

    Hope I won’t take away somebody’s job here at ALL. Grin

    Now I’m getting to some of my disappointment. Frown

  40. asifclueless says:

    My disappointment doesn’t do anything with the show. It’s just personally.

    The set list … They cut 2 of my favorite songs … IT’S LATE and SPREAD YOUR WINGS. Frown Big Frown

    Of course … my group wouldn’t know about them. I was the only one who watched and knew about the set list from other shows. I told them that the show would be close to 2 1/2 hrs. So it was only about 2 hrs. They were 40 min late and the DANG curfew. Frown

    I got I WANT TO BREAK FREE which I like and I understand ….

    Since the tight setlist and Adam’s tight leather pants are
    so tight, tight, tight SOMETHING HAS TO BREAK FREE!!!
    Grin Laugh ROTFL

    Alrighty … ngl … I’m pulling a mils here.

    mils … Do I have enough tights to honour you?
    Grin Laugh ROTFL Heart

    Another disappointment …

    After the show our friends had to take their son home and then come back to the hotel.

    Only 4 of us, DH, DD, DIL and I went out for dinner and drinks. Plate Beer Beer Beer

    I casually mentioned that … I bet tonight Adam was going to hit a gay bar in town because he had 3 days break.

    We looked for a place to go and settled at the Dubliner Pub. Beer Beer

    There were quite a few concert goers there showing and comparing their t-shirts from the merch they purchased.
    I got a few myself.

    We had a few beer and closed the bar … haha … We were the last group to leave that place.
    I asked the waitress if she knew some gay bars around there. She knew only one … Missie B’s.

    We know that place and we had been there. Heart Rainbow

    Well…Well…Well … It’s a deep subject! …

    the next day I saw some igs posted that Adam was at MISSIE B’S.

    Dang!!! We could have been there.

    OH!!! Why? Why? Why?
    I just want to kick myself! Cry

  41. ultimathule says:

    Ah – that last miss must’ve really hurt, asif – something similar happened to me and still have regrets –

  42. asifclueless says:

    I know … ulti!
    Regret! I never meet Adam or in anywhere close to him. Only in distance from concert seats.
