On July 28, pop sensation #Adam Lambert performed with classic rock band Queen at the #Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, where they played for a sold-out venue. Lambert performed alongside original Queen band members -- lead guitarist Brian May and drummer #Roger Taylor. It is safe to say that both living rock legends (May and Taylor) are like fine wine, where they only get better with age, and Adam Lambert on lead vocals was simply the icing on the cake.

A diverse set

Queen and Adam Lambert played an eclectic set in Brooklyn that featured many classic hits from Queen's extensive catalog. They opened their show with a snippet of "We Will Rock You," which was met with a raucous response.

It was followed by "Hammer to Fall" and the infectious "Stone Cold Crazy."

They immediately broke into the fan-favorite "Another One Bites the Dust," which was a high-energy performance, and the same was true for "Fat Bottomed Girls" and "Killer Queen." "I Want It All" was a fun sing-along with the Barclays Center audience.

"Under Pressure" was a captivating duet between Roger Taylor and Lambert, where the iconic British rocker showcased his prowess on drums, as well as his rumbling co-lead vocals (which blended well with Lambert's).

A Grammy-nominated pop star, Lambert's stage presence was a true force of nature, unparalleled in the music industry. Other powerhouse tunes included "Somebody to Love," coupled with "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," prior to closing with "Radio Ga Ga," and their signature song, the multi-faceted vocal "Bohemian Rhapsody."

An added bonus was hearing Lambert sing his latest solo single "Two Fux," accompanied by Queen.

This song, released on Warner Bros. Records, deserves to be his next smash hit on the Billboard charts, due to its fun and liberating feel.

Following their 22-song set, Lambert and Queen returned for a two-song encore, which featured two of their biggest hits, "We Are The Champions" and the vivacious "We Will Rock You," which were the perfect songs to close this dynamic rock show.

Former judge Paula Abdul once said it best about Adam Lambert during his days on the reality singing competition "American Idol," and that same quote still applies to this day: "It was like watching the Olympics, and you're our Michael Phelps."

The Verdict

Overall, Adam Lambert and Queen gave it their all at the Barcalys Center in Brooklyn, for a wonderful evening of classic rock music. They had their New York fans in the palms of their hands, singing along with these Queen classics every step of the way. Brian May plays lead guitar like no other, and Roger Taylor is in his own league as a drummer. Queen's headlining concert at the Barclays Center with Adam Lambert earned an A+ rating.
