Queen + Adam Lambert (Newcastle) 2017


Date: Friday 1st December 2017

Venue: Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle

It’s been almost three years since I last saw Adam Lambert grace the stage with rock legends Queen, as it was January 2015 when they last came to Newcastle. That was a truly fantastic show therefore I was very excited to be heading back to see the set up again, wondering what different things they would manage to come up with this time round.

Michael Ball and Alfie Boe – Together Tour (Newcastle)


Date: Thursday 1st December 2016

Venue: Metro Radio Arena (Newcastle, UK)

In November Michael Ball and Alfie Boe released an album together with a collection of songs mainly from Musical Theatre. They have both had incredible careers on stage and it is brilliant that they decided to work together to create the album and a tour to go alongside it.

I had certainly had the tickets for quite a long time, which is always a shame when it comes to any concert, show or performance.

Queen and Adam Lambert – Newcastle 2015

Date: Tuesday 13th January 2015

Venue: Metro Radio Arena (Newcastle, UK)

The best thing about this concert had to be that it didn’t go on sale a year in advance it was a couple of months before the actual date. Which I think should be done more often as you don’t have to wait as long for the gig to actually happen. The very well done performance on New Year’s Eve was at a prime time just a couple of weeks before the UK leg of the European tour started. Newcastle was the opening night of the Tour which again made it even more exciting!

Jesus Christ Superstar (2012 Tour)

Jesus Christ Superstar made its appearance in Newcastle at the Metro Radio Arena as part of it’s fantastic 2012 Arena tour. After a nationwide search was put out on TV in a search for Jesus Christ (I must admit that I did not watch very much of the TV show, saw small parts so had seen the winner Ben Forster sing). But other than the title song and I Don’t Know How To Love Him I didn’t know any of the other songs. Obviously everyone knows the story of Jesus, and how he sacrificed himself. But how this is worked into the songs is very clever!
