"The hot and sticky San Antonio weather didn’t stop Adam Lambert’s fans from stopping by at Six Flags Fiesta Texas for a very incredible performance. Lambert’s glam rock style pumped up the tired crowd that had been waiting there since the early morning hours."
"He is, without a single doubt, one of the most incredible live performers ever. His energy and vocals are what makes him who he is. We absolutely loved his personality and how even though he has been selling-out stadiums with Queen in Europe, he still performed this show as if was the biggest show ever."
I flove this review!!
Great review! Maybe someone can tweet him the txsunshine video links? He mentioned in his review that he's going to be putting up a clip from a phone.. and he's still looking for photos from the concert.
I was struck by the fact that although there were comments that the Queen concert buzz did not make its way across the pond, we see evidence in this review and others how much it did penetrate at least the media consciousness. I think this is a huge plus. Also the tone that although he played to these huge audiences abroad, that he is happy to be home playing his music to his home country crowds. He comes across as natural, not puffed up and generally fabulous.
You know, the one thing that has struck me lately with all the varying levels of buzz on different Adam topics lately is RESPECT.
Respect that Queen chose Adam to front them in freaking arenas at a time when they were under no obligation (or had the slightest financial need) to perform at all. They came out of retirement solely for Adam.
Respect that Adam is a serious contender for a TV judgeship, at a time when such judgeships appear to be only offered to respected, established performers. Even if Adam isn't necessarily at the same "rank" yet, the company he's associated with is pretty amazing.
Respect for a #1 album. It may have not transitioned (yet) into radio play. But that #1 seemingly gets mentioned *every*single*interview*and*article*.
Respect for the voice. No one even tries to argue that anymore. Its a given.
I downloaded London 3 WWTLF from the Talc files already converted to MP3 but like the London 2 show for the other songs. Is there a mediafire link with the flac files already converted to MP3 for that show?
I've already checked the Queen thread and the news thread for July 12.
I can't ask anyone in my family to help as I live in a strictly no illegal d/l household.
I simply can't live without hearing Adam sing Queen music every day.
Technically it's not an illegal DL because what you are DLing is not for sale! ;D
I am way late...so please excuse the late comment.
I am not a lawyer but did consult one about this.
No, there is no standard about something being for sale = not illegal to download. The copyright for these songs belongs to the copyright owners -- which depending on the song is Freddie's estate, Brian May and Roger Taylor. So technically the download is illegal; The performance is protected. There are recording rights which have not been granted to fans.
Both Queen and Adam have freely allowed fans to video, post and download their performances, and both seem to have realized this expands the fanbase and total sales. So, I do not think that there is major legal risk involved. HOWEVER I think it is very important that we do not take this gift for granted. Both Queen and Adam and the associated rights owners have the legal right to pull everything. This is just my personal opinion and does not represent the opinion of this site or anyone I consulted.

blueberry: A tech question. When I post, I'm stuck in BB Code, can't get back to Preview. Any ideas? I have Preview as default in my profile, but that doesn't help.
May 18, 2013 23:56:59 GMT -5
Q3: blueberry. there should be a two labels on tabs at the bottom of the REPLY box -- one labeled Preview and one labeled BBCode. Can you see these or are they gone?
May 19, 2013 2:08:40 GMT -5
blueberry: Q3, I can still see the labels, but when I click on the Preview label, nothing happens. And every time I start a new post, it automatically takes me to BB Code. Otherwise it doesn't matter, but posting pictures would be easier in Preview (copy+paste).
