Queen and Adam Lambert definitely rocked the sold-out crowd at Seattle’s Key Arena last night. Their chemistry was palpable and energetic. They gave the crowd everything they expected and more. There was something for every fan in the audience.
Adam Lambert worked the guitar-shaped stage like he owned it. He threw hip-thrusts and sexy dance moves like no ones business. He sported bright red hair and a silver star-spangled jacket to accent the whole thing. The red pants fit in all the right places and the crowd noticed.
The crew opened with “We Will Rock You.” It as a promise they kept throughout the entire show. Brian May and Roger Taylor (the only original members of Queen present) were living it up. They served up nostalgia for the older crowd and taught new fans the history of Queen with every guitar riff and drum beat. We will always miss Freddie Mercury but I am sure he would have enjoyed the show.
They played all of the favorites including: “Radio Ga Ga;” “Fat Bottomed Girls;” “Bohemian Rhapsody;” and dedicated “Under Pressure” to David Bowie. The encore was comprised of triumphant with “We Are The Champions.”
