QAL rock the Brisbane Entertainment Centre!

Hours after Queen and Adam Lambert lifted the roof off the Brisbane Entertainment Centre, it will be difficult for many in the crowd to provide more than a breathless: "That was amazing. I can't believe I was there. That was amazing."
With a rock 'n' roll show combining reunion, tribute and baton-passing facets, Queen and Adam Lambert delivered just over two hours of pure sensation straight into the nerves and bones of anyone fortunate enough to witness it.
Lambert, of course, is the ring-in, the latest in a series of singers who have appeared with Brian May and Roger Taylor in the years since November 24, 1991.

That date is etched on the heart of every Queen fan, for it marked the day the world lost Freddie Mercury.
His spectre hung heavy in the air as the audience readied itself on Monday night. Would Lambert be just a pale imitation? Was it even right for the others to perform without Freddie?
Bass player John Deacon certainly took that tack, retiring from the music industry in the 1990s and shunning the limelight ever since. But May and Taylor's approach is one of proud ownership of the work created with and alongside Mercury, tempered with a deep fondness and respect for their lost friend. Lambert, it therefore had to be assumed, must have something.

The band was heartily welcomed to stage, but there was a sense of audience reticence about Lambert during the first two numbers, Now I'm Here and Stone Cold Crazy. It takes the familiar funky lick of Another One Bites the Dust to truly relax fans, and by Fat Bottomed Girls, Lambert's brash delivery and flamboyant stage persona (complete with studded leathers and sky high quiff) have brought the audience onside.
Meanwhile May has begun an evening's worth of solos as awe-inspiring as that shock of ringlets that encircle his head like a curly halo. The solos serve the twin purposes of allowing Lambert, Taylor and/or their supporting musicians a brief respite and reminding you that May is the best damn guitarist in the entire damn universe. He doesn't so much play the instrument as conjure notes from it, notes that gratefully explode in a perfect cascade of sound.
The simple but effective set design features an oval-shaped rig with a runway on its left-hand side, beautifully creating the letter "Q". Lambert returns in a gold-fringed jacket and sparkly platform shoes to explore the runway to the esoteric Seven Seas of Rhye, before finding himself on a chaise with a fan and a cheeky version of Killer Queen.
