    Has anyone seen or heard them together? If so what do you guys think. Don't compare to Freddie because we know he is irreplaceable. So don't even bring it up. Would you pay to see them?

    I probably would have seen Paul Rodgers and Queen, but not Lambert. He doesn't really have the tenure to belong in Queen in my opinion, although I know many people think he does a great job.

    Watching the IHeart radio performance on YouTube. I think the guy from Fun's voice is a much better fit...Lambert's a great vocalist, but I don't like him singing those songs for some reason.

    I'm so glad Queen replaced Freddie with Adam. It's like the band just picked up where they left off. In fact, I think they are better now.

    I always wondered why they didn't get George Michael to join.
    He would have been great with Queen.
    They could have continued on almost immediately, recording new music and touring.

    EDIT:
    I have zero interest in hearing Queen with Adam.

    Maybe George doesn't want to be in a band. He's got his own thing going on, and it's not rock band stuff.

    Dude from Fun. has a decent voice, but I don't think he has anywhere near the power, range, or control to do an entire Queen set like Adam does. I honestly don't think it's even close after listening to Nate's "Somebody to Love" and then Adam's. Nate seems to be kind of all over the place in the really high parts. But, to each his own!

    Granted. It still would have been great, IMO, to hear an album of new Queen music with George.

    I saw Queen 3 times with Freddie Mercury. It was time to get rid of him. They should have replaced him with Snoop Dog decades ago.

    That's an unexpected statement to read.... Queen is better now than with Freddie Mercury ?????

    Sorry but that seems like a post to bring attention to yourself..... do people do that here ???? :nono

    I'm not a fan of Queen at all but respect what they did. Talent is talent. That statement seems ludicrous to me. Was he funnin us ?

    I saw the original version of Queen and they were great. Freddie was the ultimate showman and had a tremendous voice. There is no replacing him. I also got to see Paul Rodgers with Queen and it was very enjoyable, but much different by design. I don't care for the newest version of Queen with Adam Lambert.

    lol. Sometimes sarcasm is obvious!

    Seriously though, if it weren't for the high ticket prices, I would go to this show. We'll see, but I'm guessing close to $200 for nosebleed seats.

    Summary...

    It's ok that Freddie was gay...but that stops right there.

    Like them or not the original group was very talented. I never got to see them. However, I think a lot of people on the forum would have a different opinion if they had seen Freddie lead the band.
    In my opinion they were the best band at Live Aid in 1985 on either continent. Many have called their performance that day one of the best in music history.
    I was surprised that George Michael and Queen never got together he was amazing at the Freddie tribute show, but he has his own issues. Brian and Roger want to play and I think Freddie would approve of Adam.
    Brian and Roger are not trying to fool anyone that this is still the same group.

    Seems like a great fit. Adam is a killer singer.

    I saw Queen with Freddie Mercury every tour except the first and last one.

    I had no interest in seeing them with Paul Rodgers and without John Deacon.

    I have less interest in seeing them now.

    I bought the DVD/BluRay's though, and they were okay.
