The movie Is the main reason for the popularity, then also hiring a good looking American/Teenage Idol singer helps as well. I have nothing against Lambert, but his die hard fans believe Queen are popular right now solely because of him and Queen are nothing without him. Some of his fans
not all of course.
rather: A couple of his fans believe that.
A 38 year old is an Teenage Idol? Well no, he isn’t. Not much more than Brian and Roger. At my last QAL concert 2018 in Berlin the loudest screaming young woman was a Brian fan. A loud one. Who wanted to lick the strings of the Red Special.
As for the movie:
Exactly 1 week ago (Sunday after the release of LATW) has been „Queen
Night“ on German TV. The BoRhap movie was on for the first time on free TV, after it the documentary „Days of our Lives“ and the concert „Live at Wembley“. As a result, 3 Queen albums (Platinum Collection, Greatest Hits and the BoRhap Soundtrack) entered the Top 10 on ITunes. „Live Around the World“ had already been there. From what I could see, the showing of the movie had no effect on the new QAL album, it didn’t move up or down. But ALL Queen albums had entered the TOP 100 rock album charts that night.
Of course the movie had an impact on QAL audiences on the whole, but it’s Queen that got most of the fans, not QAL. As it should be. People can well differentiate between the 2. This new album is successful, because QAL is successful and the shows are as brilliant as they are.
