Queen + Adam Lambert – Seattle WA : July 1 2017

Last night’s show at Key Arena in Seattle was incredible. I was a little apprehensive with Adam Lambert as front man for Queen as I did go on line and watch a few of the current live performance videos and to me Adam Lambert sounded stale and didn’t seem to have “life” to his vocals, sounding much as he did during his time on American Idol. How different things were live! He sounded great with an incredible range and exuding a enormous amount of personality and energy. We were very impressed with him as lead vocalist to one of Rock and Rolls most iconic, unique and all time great bands.

We arrived at the show around 5:00pm in time to check in for the early entry VIP lounge enjoyed a few drinks and a great variety of light snacks.

The show started just after 8:00pm with the band opening appropriately enough with a short version of We Will Rock You. Their setlist was a very good mix of their big hits and some of the more obscure songs not heard since their release. Some of our favorites were Fat Bottomed Girls, Killer Queen, Don’t Stop Me Now and Crazy Little Thing Called Love. Adam Lambert sang one of his originals called Two Fux which was a song about being yourself and not really caring much about what other people think. I think my two favorite songs of the night were Who Wants to Live Forever and Somebody to Love (video link below).

Great show and definitely a must see.
