Following their sensational opening to The Platinum Party at the Palace for The Queen’s Jubilee, Queen and Adam Lambert have embarked on a 10-date residency at The O2. Two nights in and Brian May keeps enthusing on his Instagram about the joy of being back on stage after a two-year delay. The 74-year-old said how much he loved performing Love of My Life in particular when footage of Freddie Mercury joins in with him.
Brian posted: “In this moment I feel so lucky. What a beautiful sight ! For little me, sitting out there all on my own last night in London’s O2 Arena, singing Love Of My Life, in the midst of 15 thousand waving fairy lights, I felt strangely at home and among friends. I’m pretty sure it was our best show yet – to an audience who gave every ounce back to us – amazing ! Thanks dear HomeFolks ! Gonna enjoy seeing more of you tonight !!! Bri.”
The guitarist then went on to praise Adam Lambert’s incredible vocals, saying: “Here’s our boy ! In crackin’ form last night. I swear there isn’t a voice in Christendom to match those amazing pipes ! It’s a real privilege to work with …. The One and Only … Madam Lambert !!! Bri.”
The Queen drummer captioned it: “Thank you London! BRILLIANT CROWD! Show 2 of our 10 night run at the @theo2london.”
Queen and Adam Lambert have a night off today but return to North Greenwich for two more on Wednesday and Thursday, before heading to Birmingham for a couple of weekend shows.
Then it’s back to The O2 for six more concerts and they’ll be heading off on their European tour.
