All I can say is I would be glad not to be sitting next to or behind Johnny....lol. He was even "singin" during WWTLF. No, No. I know Adam loves him.....but he's a handful :D Noticed Linda Perry two seats over.....hope she wasn't too distracted....lol.

"He has something about him, an aura, a kind of ‘dark Elvis’ vibe—and what a voice!" Roger Taylor of Queen.
What amazing professionals-all three!! I've been listening to Adam since 2014 and have yet to hear a bad/off-key note! How does he do that??? Other-worldly! And Roger is such an exceptional man - such a physical performer -singer and has the most precious & unique personality - and of course our Brian. Such a great guitarist, animal activist, brilliant scientist and all-around nice & gentle man. I love all 3 so much and I'm not sure how the fates lined up to get these three together!! So grateful! Never get tired of this journey I'm on with them and so looking forward to the New Orleans concert when I get to see them live-again!!
All so true! ..and I’ve been listening to every note he publicly sang since 2009! I think he is just not capable of going off pitch organically...
Both Dr Bri and Roger were such a find for me! Exceptional people indeed!
Tyler Warren @tylerwarrenrock What an incredible night! Thank you again people of LA for making Night 2 at @theforum another one to remember 😍. Photo 1: Action This Night 👍. Photo 2: Me, Neil, and Steve Vai. Photo 3: I wonder who’s drums those are? 😉
@officialqueenmusic @adamlambert @brianmayforreal @rogertaylorofficial @neilmfairclough #spi @rush #neilpeart @praetorian_animus @stevevaihimself On a serious note... we all know the intense musical history of the Forum... but 2 of it’s more recent events make it all the more special to me... Chris Cornell’s tribute show earlier this year (already posted about that), and Rush’s last ever show happened here in 2015.
"Congrats @adamlambert with 2⃣ million streams on @spotify for #HeavyFire! 🎉 Now 2,000,479 streams (+529)! 🎧 (21 July 2019)"
"Heavy Fire" is one of my favorite songs by Adam. Hardly anyone ever talked about it. Oh how I wish more of Adam's moving and beautiful music could have been heard by the masses. Nothing dance/pop about that beautiful gem.
It is wonderful seeing Adam on stage performing on such a high level fronting Queen. Very few can put on a show like that (with outstanding vocals and showmanship) without the need of a bunch of dancers to hold attention. And the young and older are witnessing how great that talented man is. So grateful than Queen and Adam can show how wonderful they are.
I am happy for Adam that the LA crowd including family and friends celebrated him for carrying that torch so beautifully, and I hope that they will do the same once he goes on the road with his solo material. He on his own merit has a strong song catalogue to pull from.
I too love "Heavy Fire". One of my all-time favorite Adam songs. I really need a solo tour again. Nova Red Room caused that spark.

Billboard's Money Makers: The Highest Paid Musicians of 2018 with @queenwillrock + @adamlambert on #37 earning 13.8 million dollar in the US! 🎉 4.6M sales (#2 overal!), 1.9M publishing, 4.8M streaming & 2.5M touring! Congrats @drbrianmay & @officialrmt!
billboard @billboard Billboard's Money Makers: The highest paid musicians of 2018 blbrd.cm/UUnfGe
37. Queen + Adam Lambert The global success of the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody and its soundtrack resulted in the band’s recorded-music income ballooning to 54% of its 2018 income, fueled by a robust 1.6 billion streams -- almost unheard of for a heritage act.
More info about this: Methodology: Money Makers was compiled with 2018 U.S.-only Nielsen Music and Billboard Boxscore data. All revenue figures cited are Billboard estimates and, due to rounding, an artist’s total may not equal the sum of the subcategories. Revenue from merchandising, synchronization and sponsorship is not included. Unless otherwise noted, streaming totals consist of combined on-demand audio and video streams. Recording-career totals are the sum of an artist’s sales, streaming and publishing earnings. Revenue from featured-artist appearances is credited to the main artists, but other recording collaborations -- usually denoted as a “duet with,” “+” or “&” -- are generally split evenly by the artists. Touring revenue, after the manager’s cut, equals 34% of an act’s Boxscore, except in residencies, where it equals 60%. Sales royalties were calculated based on physical/digital albums and track sales. Streaming royalties consist of on-demand audio/video streams, plus estimated royalties from programmed webcasting, SiriusXM and Music Choice. The following royalty rates were used: album and track sales, 22% of retail revenue. On-demand streaming royalties were calculated using blended audio and video rates of, respectively, $0.0054 and $0.0016 per stream, applied against a 22% royalty rate for new hit artists, 37% for superstar artists, 50% for heritage artists and 78% for artists that own their masters. A subscription per-stream rate of $0.0019 -- blended to reflect the different statutory rates for ad-supported and subscription streams -- was applied to programmed streams, and per-play estimated rates of $0.74 and $30.00 were applied to Music Choice and SiriusXM plays, respectively. Publishing royalties were estimated using statutory mechanical rates for album and track sales. The Copyright Royalty Board streaming formula produced an average rate of 13.1% of streaming revenue, and the following per-play averages: hit radio, $2.50; heritage spins, $0.60; Music Choice, $0.40; SiriusXM, $8.33; programmed streams, $0.0003. Billboard estimated each artist’s songwriter’s share of the recorded music included in these calculations, and publishing royalties were calculated as co-publishing deals, giving the writer 75% of those royalties. A 10% manager’s fee was deducted from artist and publisher royalty pools. A 4% producer’s fee was deducted from each artist’s recorded-music royalty pool.

atomom: Adam's artistry is in full display: the surprise of hiccuppy gasps right before "new eyes", the sensuous tongue, one-two punch of "damn" smile, head thrown back, body drops to heavy guitar beats, a lusciously looking Adam--all make NE a visual/aural feast.

phronni7: Linda, Thank you so much for your kind wishes and thoughts. I tried to send an earlier thanks, but I don’t know what happened. I was definitely in Zombie mode and might still be to some extent. But I love “I was born to Love You”. Than you again, Laur
