It would be an obivous opener, but I think they want something unique for their new tour. Maybe a new song? Wait and see, I guess.

It was a great performance, especially Paul! He voice was so powerful!

Some little mistakes in One Vision, but that doesn't matter. Tie Your Mother Down rocked!

I guess Roger has a new drumkit?

Some little mistakes?!? The whole thing was a mess. But after a rough start they played a great set. Well, Danny made a major mistake on All Right Now but who cares... It was nice to see the boys in action again.

Great to see the lads again but this type of show is getting really tedious. 15 - 20 min set of the same songs (a poor one vision apart). Lets wait for the tour and the new material. UK coverage was a disgrace. I'm in Ireland and watched it on the web but ITV should be ashamed. By the way, I think Roger's had that green kit since the late 90's. Seem to remember a pic in an old fan club mag.

The whole concert was great. And belong Motown Amy Whitehouse and the emotional speech of Annie Lennox, Queen and Paul were the top of the bill.

I was very surprised by the One Vision bit (altough they messed it up a bit), Brians guitar was so loud. They sounded like a hardrock band compared to the other artists, very energetic. Paul was very, very good and Brian played with is heart and closed eyes by some of his solo stuff. Roger was a bit exhausted...

I`m now happy to have a ticket for the autumn tour.

Kind of surprised at the coverage on ITV, from the replies, here in the States we seen the whole show, from beginning to end on the net, just remarkable the USA did something right in showing this concert all the way thur.......
even though it was thur the 46664 website, but glad i seen it and can't wait for VH1 to show it on Monday to tape it........and for Queen +PR touring the states next year......

imho, did'nt think Queen wanted to showcase there new material, which would've been not the place or time to do it.......

Absolutely fantastic. One Vision sounded as triumphant as it did back in 1986, and Paul's interpretation of it was nothing short of brilliant. They all looked and played great. Who cares about a couple missed notes? Rock and roll is all about the feeling conveyed... and it'd be hard to have more feeling than what that set had. Champions was the most powerful version I've heard in years, and Brian's solos were all right on the money. Excellent performance.

An interesting note:

I just watched the show on CBC, and in the credits it said that Spike Edney was the musical director. If anyone has ever doubted Spike's abilities and respect he has from those around him... there's all the proof you need.

FUCK ME, Brian was incredible!
I second whoever said Roger looked old and tired. Still playing good, of course.

Paul Rodgers was pretty good, flubbed lyrics aside. Whoever said "One Vision" was a mess needs to hear the Wembley version without overdubs.... there's a similar amount of stuff-ups.
I for one won't hold it against Paul Rodgers simply because he isn't Freddie Mercury. :/

Pretty good set and man, did Paul do great or what?!!!!! :R

should of known what was gonna happen as soon as i saw that ITV was covering it [think of the crap job they do with Formula1 folks].

no LIVE bands[all on a time delay] Philip Schofield making up 'facts' as he went along..i didnt know Queen headlined the 1988 concert for Mandela at Wembley,did you? according to Philip Schofield they did..
Stephen Fry getting on Brian's soapbox in the studio with Schofield and trying to lecture the world on how to be humble and getting rightly drowned out by 'tie your mother down'. stick to QI Stephen,its what you do best.
ITV spent more time with Fearne Cotton freezing her tits off backstage and showing clips of Will Smith making an ass of himself frontstage than they did with showing the performance acts.
what we saw of Q+PR on the tv sounded excellent,the other acts 'phoned it in' though by the looks of it [maybe it was ITV making it look like that] but it didnt look great.

and,why on Gods green Earth did they make a virtually immobile 90 year old man walk across the stage to make a speech,he could barely get to the podium,they should of brought the podium to him.the bugger nearly died right there and then on the stage.

and if Amy Winehouse is suffering from Emphyzema then im a monkeys uncle...

Well, she said she was going back to hospital straight after the gig. I thought she was great. She didn't even look like she'd taken a load of drugs. Amazing voice.

...And I forgot to watch Queen.

did anyone else check their contrast and brightness controls on the tv during Amy's interview with little Fearnie Cotton?

Well, here (in holland) they showed the whole show (I think).
All the Queen songs.
One Vision sounded a bit weird, with some little mistakes a weird timing from Roger.
But I have to say that Paul's voice sounds great, and hope that it will be still that good in Rotterdam (7th of October).
