  Fans' frenzy at Pop Idol gig
Updated 15 March 2002, 09.34
Pop Idol's Jessica Garlick
Fans queued for hours in the rain on Thursday to see their Pop Idol's perform live.

The 10 TV finalists came together to sing a string of top tunes at the first date on the Pop Idol tour.

And predictably, Gareth Gates and Will Young were the big hits of the night.

The crowds went crazy for chart-topper Will, who sang his number one smash Evergreen, and a cover of The Doors' Light My Fire.

Slushy duet

Gareth came on stage to sing his single, Unchained Melody, which is set to knock Will off the top spot when it's released on Monday.

Gareth also sang a slushy duet with fellow Pop Idol pal Zoe Birkett.

Other highlights were Darius Danesh swinging his hips to It's Not Unusual, and solos from Zoe and Aaron Bayley.

Jessica Garlick, Laura Doherty, Rosie Ribbons and Hayley Evetts also sang live at the gig.
