Lambert to give gay Houston ‘Somebody to Love’

Add this share

Gay rocker Adam Lambert hits the Toyota Center on Wednesday to complement Freddie Mercury and rock some classic Queen. What to expect? Glam.

Lambert's stop in Houston is the 10th on a 24-date North American tour this summer, reenergizing veteran British rockers Brian May and Roger Taylor and a playlist full of anthems and ballads from Queen's legendary catalogue.

Like “Somebody to Love,” which they let loose with over the weekend in Las Vegas (watch below).

What else to expect? Something like this from last week's stop in Los Angeles, according to the LA Times:

But the peacocking Lambert, an avowed Mercury devotee, shares much more of a spirit with the group’s famously theatrical frontman, and he seems to have inspired May and Taylor to boost the spectacle factor for their summer arena tour. Thursday’s concert, billed as a performance by Queen + Adam Lambert, had lasers, multiple stages and a video camera attached to May’s guitar that he used to show off his virtuosic technique; there was also, inevitably, Lambert’s array of splashy costumes, including a leopard-print suit and a pair of spiked leather sleeves.

Consider yourself warned, gay Houston: Lambert likes his bars gay when he's on the road.
