USA-music-Queen + Adam Lambert perform in Chicago

Queen & Adam Lambert kicked off their 24-city North American tour at the United Center in Chicago Thursday night, and the reviews are in: FIRE!

From the Chicago Tribune:

The chemistry among the trio was evident: Lambert grooved to Taylor’s beats on the drum platform, May and Lambert’s respective guitar and vocal gymnastics interlaced effortlessly… Lambert’s role was not to be underestimated. He brought spine-tingling prowess to the epic “Who Wants To Live Forever” and “Somebody To Love,” campiness to “Killer Queen,” rockabilly dance poses to “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” and respect during “Bohemian Rhapsody,” where he traded vocals with Mercury on screen as the band and audience harmonized along.

Team Lambert sent pictures (by Neal Preston) and video from the show!
