If you were one of the lucky thousands who were wowed by Queen and Adam Lambert’s showstopping performance at TRNSMT last night, we bet you’re still on cloud nine.

And these fans definitely went a bit Gaga for the iconic rockers, who brought the house down as main stage headliners for the start of the second weekend.

Revellers were caught on camera as they left Glasgow Green last night, clearly still on a high from the concert.

There was definitely a certain kind of magic in the air as former American Idol winner Adam Lambert took to the stage with his musical heroes to belt out the group’s unbelievable back catalogue of hits.

Their set included everything the die hard fan could have asked for, as well as a wee bit something different with the musicians doing their own rendition of The Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond – in tribute to Brian May’s Scottish mum.

I Want to Break Free, Radio Ga Ga and Bohemian Rhapsody were just some of the epic tunes on offer as the sun set on a glorious Friday night in Glasgow.

From Brian May taking a selfie with the expansive crowd, to a poignant tribute to Freddie Mercury, TRNSMT’s Friday night was one for the history books, with other big name acts including Texas, Alabama 3 and Gun taking to the stages.

Live review: TRNSMT, Glasgow, Fri 6 Jul

Stage from audience TRNSMT Festival

“It’s exciting, exhilarating and infectious, these are anthems built for stadiums and festivals. Big life affirming celebrations of excess and rock grandeur, matched by a huge theatrical production with lazers, smoke, giant robots, disco balls, hydraulic platforms and a pink tricycle.”

“What’s great about Lambert is that he never tries to impersonate Freddie but there’s something about his performance that captures his spirit, flamboyance and showmanship.”

“The encore of ‘We Will Rock You’ and ‘We Are the Champions’, with its handclaps and huge singalong choruses, surely reverberated through the tower blocks that dominate the skyline across the Clyde, the majesty of rock writ large across Glasgow Green.”
