"Now there’s an audience for me being exactly who I am. There’s permission given.” Adam Lambert
Jeff Scott Soto @jeffscottsoto I can't say enough about this man's voice as well as his friendly demeanor, @adamlambert, who I've been following since his audition on Idol, his flawless and effortless voice soared tonight...just like every time I see him!! @officialqueenmusic
Queen + Adam Lambert had a couple of reasons to celebrate during their concert at the Forum in Los Angeles last night (July 19). For starters, it was guitarist Brian May's 72nd birthday, and they also paid tribute to May's other passion, astrophysics, by recognizing the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.
After "I Want It All," the midway point of the main set, May went out to the end of the catwalk and addressed the crowd. "It's strange enough it's my birthday today," he said. "To tell you truly theres no place I'd rather be than right here. Thank you for being with us here tonight."
May then performed "Love of My Life" solo with a 12-string acoustic guitar while late frontman Freddie Mercury appeared on the screen. That led into "'39," which featured footage of the moon landing. Upon its conclusion, drummer Roger Taylor led the crowd in a round of "Happy Birthday."
Typically for Queen, they pulled out all the stops in the production, with the musicians occasionally making grand entrances via hydraulics, including Lambert rising up from the stage on a motorcycle for "Bicycle Race" and May following suit for his first guitar solo on "Bohemian Rhapsody." Lasers were used during "Who Wants to Live Forever" and the next number, May's recent solo song "New Horizons."
The stage was watched over by a crown-like ring that featured the band's logo, guitars and a drum kit with Frank, the News of the World robot, on the bass drum head. Silver columns framed the stage, with a red curtain leading to the backstage. You can see our exclusive photos below.
Queen + Adam Lambert will play the Forum again tonight, with the Rhapsody tour running through Aug. 23, when it concludes at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C. You can get more info here.

irish1139: Bamafan, I hope to see you in Florida. Thanks for everything. I have to get a new computer. This one is 15 years old and doesn't work well. I hope no one has read the stuff I have typed today. It is nutty.

nannygoat: Just heard this parody of Bohemian Rhapsody. Thought everyone would enjoy it. Amazes me how people can be so creative. ow.ly/p9ZH30niDPS and did I mention how much I am enjoying all the 'goodies' we got lately? "Feel Something" is gorgeous.

atomom: Adam's artistry is in full display: the surprise of hiccuppy gasps right before "new eyes", the sensuous tongue, one-two punch of "damn" smile, head thrown back, body drops to heavy guitar beats, a lusciously looking Adam--all make NE a visual/aural feast.

jason90405: The complete MTV Pride 2 hour special "Adam Lambert's Fierce Pride Anthems". I did miss the first 30 seconds when he was talking about performing for Cher but you can watch or downloads the whole thing here: drive.google.com/file/d/1H3NfgxeBpk0H

phronni7: Linda, Thank you so much for your kind wishes and thoughts. I tried to send an earlier thanks, but I don’t know what happened. I was definitely in Zombie mode and might still be to some extent. But I love “I was born to Love You”. Than you again, Laur
