Lambert has long praised Mercury's influence on his own work. "When I look at the history of rock & roll," he told Rolling Stone, "Queen is the band that resonated the most with me: ‘That’s me, that’s my life.'”
The Rhapsody Tour follows 2018's "barely mediocre" biographical drama film Bohemian Rhapsody, according to Pittsburgh City Paper movie critic Hannah Lynn. "Unlike the band and the song, which found the exact right formula of heart and insanity to make something magic, the movie fails to synthesize the band and Freddie Mercury's life," penned Lynn in her review.
Did Lambert's performance last night give the memory of Freddie Mercury more justice than the film? You tell us. Sound off in the comments.
