But having enjoyed every minute of it, I left the show a bigger fan than before.
While no one can replicate the unbelievable voice of Freddie Mercury, Jesus Christ Superstar finalist Nathan James came close.
Belting out classics such as We Will Rock You, Tie Your Mother Down, Radio Ga Ga, Somebody to Love, Barcelona and Bohemian Rhapsody as well as lending softer tones to ballads The Great Pretender and Who Wants To Live Forever, he and five other singers including Over the Rainbow finalist Amy Diamond really gave it their all.
Featuring a poignant performance of Only the Good Die Young in tribute to the showman who without his genius the show wouldn’t exist, the atmosphere was tingling as the sounds of Queen were echoed throughout the theatre.
Finishing with the classic We Are the Champions, the audience were on their feet with hands in the air chanting along and filling the place with applause.
With breath-taking performances from the singers, energetic dancers, excellent lighting and the powerful rock band this show was the ultimate place to be for Queen fans.
