  1. QUEEN + Adam Lambert: The Queen has found her King

    Posted on

    QUEEN + Adam Lambert is a triumph and a match made in heaven. In this blog entry, I look back at the four shows I had the joy to experience, some of the shows’ highlights (attention: spoilers), and I give a bit of context on this fan’s very personal experience of QUEEN + Adam Lambert. I also make a few wishes re: possible continuation of this magical collaboration…

  2. My first concert

    Posted on

    Before moving on to current days, I’m going to stick a little bit with early influences and another Queen memory: my first-ever rock concert!

    19 April 1982: Queen live in Paris, Palais des Sports (“Hot Space Tour”)

    At that time, Queen had just released their first “Greatest Hits” album 6 month earlier, “Under Pressure” had been released as a single, but the “Hot Space” album wasn’t due until a couple of weeks later.

    By 1982, I was a teenager and seriously into music.  But growing up in the French countryside, there weren’t many rock concerts – for that you had to make the trip to the capital: Paris…

    My dad took me to my first concert – and several after that – not cool, I know, but Paris was very foreign and overwhelming to me at the time, and that was the only way I would be able to go.  To be honest, I didn’t mind at all and I think my dad enjoyed the show almost as much as I did.  In fact, I had already started turning on the entire family to Queen, by taking charge of the entertainment during family car trips and forcing them into submission with mixtape after mixtape…

    I had been looking forward to this day for a long time.  The thought of being in the same building as my idols was blowing my mind.
