Adam Lambert, who moonlights as the singer of Queen, was very impressed with the band's bio-pic, Bohemian Rhapsody.
Lambert says, "I really enjoyed it. I thought it was amazing. The live footage is what blew me away the most. I mean, that Live Aid concert at the end, I mean they literally recreated it, which I think is so cool. And I thought Rami [Malek] and the rest of the guys that played the band really nailed their performance mannerisms. It really got the energy of the audience across to, which I really loved. I thought it was a very triumphant end to the film. I loved that. I'm just so excited for the band and for the success of the film and for this renewed interest in Queen."
Lambert also had a small role in the film. He talked about his cameo:
"It was so fun. I mean I was in London working with the band -- we were rehearsing -- so it was sort of last minute like, 'Hey, do you want to come be in a scene?' and I was like, 'Yeah, why not.' So, you know, I dressed up as a trucker -- in my best trucker look -- and did a little bit there. So it was fun."
While just a small role, it was a pivotal moment. As he and Freddie locked eyes, Freddie questioned his own sexuality.
Lambert and Queen will capitalize on the film's success with the Rhapsody tour, which starts on July 10th in Vancouver.
