5 reasons to See Queen + Adam Lambert

5 Reason to See Queen + Adam Lambert

Rock icons headline their first ever Scottish festival at this year's TRNSMT

Most of the headline acts at TRNSMT have played its T in the Park predecessor in some form or another. But there's one outfit that stands out in all its pomp rock majesty: Queen + Adam Lambert are playing their first ever Scottish festival date. Here are a handful of reasons they will rock you . .

1. The Hits
It's no wonder Queen's first greatest hits collection is the highest selling album in the UK. Not just hits but solid-gold rock classics such as 'Don't Stop Me Now', 'We Are the Champions', 'Another One Bites the Dust', 'Killer Queen', 'Somebody to Love', 'Radio Ga Ga', the list goes on and on, and we haven't even mentioned …

2 … 'Bohemian Rhapsody'
Six minutes of extravagant operetta meets prog rock perfection. It topped the charts for nine weeks when it was first released in 1976 before returning to number one for another five weeks in 1991 after the death of Freddie Mercury.

3. Brian May
As a founding member of Queen, May has written some of the world's most memorable solos. It's a proper hairs on the back of your neck moment when he strides out on stage, guitar in hand. Not forgetting original drummer Roger Taylor keeping the flame alive.

4. Adam Lambert
While we'd never ever suggest that Lambert is a better frontman than Mercury (one of the all-time greats) he's an exciting, flamboyant performer with an astonishing vocal range.

5. Scots rock
Queen's supporting lineup features a strong showing of homegrown talent, namely Texas, The Temperance Movement, Gun, The Xcerts, Hunter & The Bear, Mason Hill and The Amorettes. And we can also make a quarter claim for The Darkness, given that bass player Frankie Poullain is an Edinburgher.

Queen + Adam Lambert play TRNSMT, Glasgow Green, Fri 6 Jul.

the care in saying that one is superior to the other becomes pathetic, Adam has a voice superior to that of many singers, he does not have to be better than Freddie, and not even the fans make a point of it
