Review: Queen Impress Crowds At London’s Hammersmith Apollo

Queen took to the stage at London’s Hammersmith Apollo last night to debut the new ‘Queen & Adam Lambert’ line up to an audience of hardcore fans, including a few celebs such as Bob Geldof, Phil Spencer and Matt Lucas.

Entertainmentwise went along to check out the band and the guys, who were recently forced to cancel their headline set due to poor ticket sales for Sonisphere festival 2012, were surprisingly energised and bounced around the stage like they’d never been away.

Despite speculation as to whether or not Adam would be able to fulfil the role of Freddie Mercury to the max, he paraded around the stage and worked the part, with his Jedward-esque quiff and dressed in leather.

The band played all the biggest hits, including ‘Radio Ga Ga’ and a thrillingly speeded up ‘We Will Rock You’, which also made an appearance during the encore, oddly.

The crowd seemed to love every minute and the ‘celeb spotting’ brightened up the show just a little, as we noticed Perez Hilton, Matt Lucas and Bob Geldof all having a bit of a boogie to some of the bands greatest hits.

All in all, a pretty impressive gig! You can check out Queen tonight (July 12) at the Hammersmith Apollo again, as well as Saturday night (July 14). Don’t miss out.
