Two thumbs up from long-time Queen fan
7 May 2019 | by david-2348See all my reviews

Adam Lambert is not Freddie Mercury, and he doesn't want to be nor need to be. I have been following Queen from the earliest days and still rate the 1985 concert in Tokyo, just prior to Live Aid, as one of the highlights of my life. I love all the original Queen music, but Queen with Adam Lambert breathes new life into it, and the last Queen concert I went to in 2018 was actually a better concert (in terms of sound, structure, content, lighting, effects, etc) than the 1985 one. Queen with Adam Lambert is a different flavour, but it's just as enjoyable. This documentary goes into detail about how this new partnership came about. If you like Queen and have an open mind, you will like this. Now if only they would dare to write some new material together....
