REVIEW: Can Adam Lambert-Led Queen Keep The Band’s Classic Legacy Alive?

by

It can’t be easy being Adam Lambert these days. Sure, he’s living everyone’s rock ‘n’ roll fantasy by fronting the rock icons in Queen on a cross-country arena tour. On the surface his life seems to rule in a major way, but I began to think again as I approached Madison Square Garden Thursday night. I had expected to see a mixed crowd of young Glamberts who have followed Adam’s art and antics since his American Idol days, as well as classic rock fans thrilled to hear the vintage songs played live once more. But the well-worn Queen t-shirts were plentiful and the Lambert love appeared few and far between as I took my seat.

He is about to play to a packed crowd of 20,000 people (New Yorkers, no less!), who all seemed to be thinking the same thing: “Can the kid pull it off?” Under pressure, indeed.

By Christopher Rosa 

It’s Friday, and you know what that means? Another rock-tastic round of Battle of the Summer Jamswhere two hit songs duel it out to see which one you, frankly, jam out to the most. Last week’s round saw Nico & Vinz’s silky-smooth “Am I Wrong” crush Magic!’s “Rude” with a 70-30 split. We guess no one’s finding anything wrong with their hit (alright, no more corny jokes).
