The show must go on: The Queen + Adam Lambert story (2019)

Directed by Christopher Bird and Simon Lupton

This is definitively an interesting look at Queen after the untimely death of Freddie Mercury. I remember seeing the Freddie Mercury tribute concert in 1992 and to this day is still one of the best concerts I have seen.

That is where the documentary begins, that moment where the band thought they would never play together again. The documentary looks at how the band coped with the loss and how they started to play together again. Also, we get to know Adam Lambert and his journey from American Idol to playing with Queen.

For me, it has always been hard to see them without Freddie but after seeing this documentary and the footage of their concerts with Adam I have to say I would see them live. Adam went with the right approach of not trying to be Freddie and just perform and he has a good voice to pull it off. Sadly John Deacon has never played with them but Roger and Brian still sound great together.

As a fan of Queen, this was a good documentary to see. Still sad that we lost Freddie, but it is good that the band found a way to keep the music going.
