Queen at SSE Arena Belfast

The SSE Arena was packed out; every seat, every standing spot, every box was full of an audience waiting patiently for Queen featuring Adam Lambert to make their Belfast debut. They have in fact played the city before, at the MTV European Music Awards in 2011, where it all started for this pairing.

They didn’t disappoint!

Adam is the ideal choice to stand in for the legendary Freddie Mercury. He doesn’t try to be Freddie, and treats us to perfect recreations of those iconic rock songs by Queen. The focus here is on the legendary group and not Adam. It doesn’t get more perfect. It’s a night of amazing memories the Belfast audience won’t forget. The stuff of legend.

It’s an emotional night as Freddie Mercury makes a few guest appearances on screen, you can only imagine what it would’ve been like to see them all perform together back in the day.

The stage and lighting was phenomenal, no expense spared for this tour. It was spectacular, the most impressive we’ve ever seen.

I could gush on about it for hours, yet I’m still strangely speechless and in awe of what I witnessed last night in Belfast. Just wow!
