queen-2017-main

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.

RIP David Bowie: A Tribute

With the unexpected news this morning that we have lost a legend in David Bowie, I really felt that I needed to do a small tribute to the incredible man, musician, song writer and actor. He really was something else, in a different mould to everyone else and a persona we will never ever see again. He was unique. I went though a Glam Rock phase as a teenager and of course Bowie was very much part of that, I also have to say that my dad played a huge part in that as he is such a big Bowie fan.

It also seems fitting with how many of his songs have been used in films as well as his many acting appearances as well, I always remember him in The Prestige and that was a total shock as had known idea that he was even in the film! Because of his unique style and many different types of songs he certainly has had them appear in many many films, often making them just that little bit better.

The Jean Genie is quite possible my favourite of his songs, so tricky to pick though . . .

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!
