Queen + Adam Lambert Bohemian Rhapsody New Zealand Tour: Reviews - "a stupendous night of artistry"
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
Queen + Adam Lambert have just kicked off their 3 date run in New Zealand at Wellington's Westpac Stadium, and they did so in style by including the track 'I Was Born To Love You' in their setlist - it was the first time that the band has performed the song outside of Asia!
The track, which was originally a Freddie Mercury solo hit and later reworked for the Queen 'Made In Heaven', is incredibly popular in the Far East and was only ever reserved for live shows in that region. Lucky New Zealand!
Queen + Adam Lambert's last show to play in New Zealand is: 10 FEB - Dunedin, Forsyth Barr Stadium
Remaining tickets are available @ www.ticketmaster.co.nz.
“May and Taylor are the custodians of more of the great songs of rock history than any two musicians should have any right to, and they’ve found, in Lambert, someone who can re-vitalise them and make them live again.” - Crave
“a visually magnificent concert, dazzling with a handful of spectacular moments and the overwhelming power of the Queen discography.” - 13th Floor
“It was large, bombastic and fantastic. They rocked, they rolled and they reigned.” - NZ Herald
“a hard-rocking, riff-tastic, bass-heavy, thumping good bash through Queen's back catalogue that was by turns thrilling and tedious, touching and over-the-top and, every now and then, truly surprising.” - Stuff
…”a stupendous night of artistry.” - Ambient Light
“…they could have played for three solid hours straight and I wouldn't have complained.” - Stuff
“I was reminded of why music matters, because it speaks to us, soothes us. Queen and Lambert did this tonight..for Wellington, this was our moment. We own that privilege, we own that emotion. And it was euphoric!” - Ambient Light
"...this will be one of the highlights for me in 2020. Again, if you still haven’t brought tickets, just don’t miss out on seeing this show..." - Libel
