Queen and Adam Lambert were the headliners for the annual Isle Of Wight festival, and they wasted no time in paying tribute to the victims of the horrific Orlando shooting that happened recently.

The band, performing with Lambert as their frontman, dedicated the song Who Wants To Live Forever to “anyone who has been a victim of senseless violence or hatred”, in Lambert’s words. Queen closed out the 15th anniversary of Isle Of Wight in spectacular fashion.

They also paid tribute to the late Queen frontman, the legendary Freddie Mercury, by leading the audience into singing Love Of My Life while they performed, before wrapping it up with a video of Freddie performing the song.

There was a mini tribute to another all-time great, David Bowie, when Queen performed Under Pressure, a collaboration with the late musician.
