I have to skip a few groups because I SAW QUEEN LAST NIGHT!!!!! If you had any reason to not go other than Adam Lambert was singing for Queen that’s fine. If Adam Lambert was the EXCUSE you had to not go, this is the only time I will say you’re flat out WRONG! I’m not a fan of his music and NOBODY could replace Freddie Mercury! Adam Lambert preformed, and sang VERY VERY well! He did not in anyway try to over shadow Roger Taylor, Brian May or Queen! He hit EVERY note with ease and put on a memorable show people will be talking about for years.
So, if you didn’t go because it was on a Monday and you had to make the terrible 2.5 hour drive from Regina to Saskatoon and back, or you’re not a fan of Queen or you had other priorities/commitments. That’s fine, I get it.
If Adam Lambert was your EXCUSE you missed a FANTASTIC!!!!! show, and you’re planning on seeing them the next time they come through Saskatchewan? Yeah that happens all of the time………….NOT! You will likely never have another opportunity to see Queen if you’re a fan. “Oh but really it’s because Adam Lambert is singing with them” do you know how many times I’ve heard that excuse? Do a simple search on google or youtube, wait, I’ll make this easy and give you a link………http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqOLX1BMCxw There I heard this last night. I pretty much heard Queen’s Greatest Hits live 40 feet away from me!
Yeah, Brian May and Roger Taylor would let any moron sing for them….NO! They probably went through an audition process to find a singer that A. Could sing B. Preform and C. That they could do a tour with for however long. They did this song even better than Paul Rudd http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LvMeYEwWGQ
The highlight for me was hearing this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34ErUwV5Uxk and of course they did “Bohemian Rhapsody” I instantly thought of beer and dill pickles Rachel.
The downside of last night was that it started an hour late and whoever was in front of us had dreadful B.O., so really no big deal in the grand scheme of things.
