Due to my (interesting and adventuresome) press work I was able to go to many of
Freddie Mercury smiling at me during interviews in SanRemo, Italy, 1984, during the song festival…

Queen were, in the days: Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, John Deacon…Some changes over the years, following Freddie’s death, plus John Deacon’s *retiring* in 1997. For a while they had Paul Rodgers as lead singer, until they bumped into Adam Lambert (American Idol finalist), and…it was Magic! a real kind of Magic…
They have been performing together since 2011, Adam is the most suitable Person–for many reasons–to fit in Freddie’s place, in my opinion (that’s also what Brian and Roger said). He has stage presence, an awesome voice that reaches peaks similar to Freddie’s, and is the missing piece to the Band. So now it is Queen+Adam Lambert. No one will ever be like Fred, but Adam is the closest fit.
They will be in Italy (brought by Barley Arts, Claudio Trotta management), on June 25, 2016, performing at the Anfiteatro Camerini, in Piazzola del Brenta, near Padua. Tickets cost 82 Euros and can be bought online, also with Ticketone.com.
The Queen + Adam Lambert 2016 Summer Festival Tour is a summer stadium/festival tour by British rock band Queen and American singer Adam Lambert. The tour began on 20 May 2016, in Lisbon, Portugal at the Bela Vista Park and will continue throughout Europe before coming to an end, on 25 June 2016, in Padua.
They will…will Rock You…Rock You!
No one will ever replace Freddie Mercury, and his memory will always be with you, me, them, and the future ones to come…
