We went to a Queen* concert on Saturday night here in Seattle’s Key Arena. Adam Lambert (he’s from Indianapolis) stands in for Freddie Mercury these days – not an easy task by any means, but he did just fine. If anything, he brings a little George Micheal ‘look’ and persona to the stage. I really liked Lambert’s glamorous and glittering outfits!
*Of the four original band members, 60-somethings Brian May (lead guitar, vocals) and Roger Taylor (drums) remain. In the original band, Freddie Mercury did lead vocals and piano, and John Deacon bass guitar.
As for the songs, of course the crowd-pleasers were there: We Will Rock You, Somebody to Love, Bohemian Rhapsody, Under Pressure, as well as a few songs that I did not know. My favorite song was actually the closing one, played at the end of the encore: God Save the Queen. A lot of glitter from the rafters filled the arena, and that was the signal to go home.
