and live on Freeview channel 276
Two guys from Brazil and Venezuela – around 5,000 miles away – said they were devoted followers of the music sensation. But the Brazilian made clear he was a fan of Edinburgh as well as Beyonce. He said: “A lot of concerts come through Glasgow and Beyonce in Edinburgh – I cannot miss it, it’s amazing.”
Two girls who had travelled up from Manchester said they were Beyonce superfans who are attending their tenth Queen Bey concert. They said their first had been in 2001. “That was Destiny’s Child at the ME arena. We’ve never missed a concert since then. We weren’t going to miss this one and if she releases any more we’ll go to them as well. We’ll follow her wherever she goes.”
Others were there from London, Aberdeen, Glasgow and across the country.
Many of those gathering outside the venue were impressively dressed, some to look like Beyonce. But if anyone felt they needed to add to their outfit there were hats on sale for £15.
