QPR started the show with an acceptable version of One Vision.

I had hopes to see something else new (I mean a new Queen cover, not new stuff), but the show proceeded with TYMD, TSMGO, WWRY, WATC and Allright Now.

Paul seemed quite confident to me

nice taster, but not enough to find out any hints from the upcoming tour

That is interesting, and I must say Im quite pleased - this hasnt been played by the guys since the Magic Tour has it?
Im certain Paul is capable of this one, so I'll actually be more interested to hear how Bri played it after 22 years - the solo etc.

Hopefully someone will upload a top quality version of the Queen set as I had to go out this evening!

all the songs performed were shortened; One Vision was cut at the beginning of the "I had a dream" part, so ... no solo :(

Yeah I noticed that as well.
I have only seen WWRY
WATC(which is on youtube already!) and AllRight Now and each of those were shortened.

Strange decision, but I suppose it leaves me with something in particular to look forward to when I catch them in Liverpool!

as the songs were shortened and cut I was saying to myself "yeah, more time for more songs! now they´ll surprise us with another new song as they did with One Vision!"

but didn´t happen :(

Anyway, the "old" stuff was played smoothly; I liked Paul´s voice and Roger´s attitude (and clothes!); Brian also good

by the way, he played (fine) Is This The World We Created with Andrea Corr on vocals

Actually ITTWWC is the only thing Ive seen a video of so far on you tube - Brian played fine mostly, although it sounded like he made a couple of fluffs at the very beginning - in fact it almost sounded like the guitar needed tuning, although that is highly unlikely, and might have been due to the poor quality of the audio.

Andrea Corr is a lovely lady, and a nice singer, but Ive heard her do this better before - I thought she was struggling a bit today - maybe she didnt warm up properly!

And watch, because the songs were cut that means 125 comments from idiots over at youtube about how that bastard Rodgers forgot a verse of WWRY or whatever.
I can see it already.

I think One Vision needs some work.... and I am not talking about Paul flubbing the lyrics.

Yeah, they'll get it rolling.

It looks to be the replacement for Reaching Out.

Don't worry - One Vision will be tight....remember the first show at Brixton or the one in South Africa...those weren't tight either but they were when the got the tour going.

The Show overall was great though....QPR Rocks!!

Well "One Vision" was pretty sloppy but since it was the first time they performed in live, I'll cut them some slack. The rest of the set list was as tight as you'd expect, a well oiled machine you could say. I'd like to see "One Vision" performed on the tour, maybe with some more rehearsals behind it, it'll come off better.

One Vision does indeed need a bit or work - PR got to the bridge as the others started on verse2. It is forgivable, and should be up to speed when the tour starts but this show was a worldwide shop-window and it really IS up to these guys to get it right

Well everyone's said it already but I'll go a step further and say One Vision was a disaster. And if they are considering starting the shows with it, as if it were 1986 again, I think that is just really sad. I've never been a Paul basher or a defender of Freddie's territory before but something doesn't feel right about them doing that song...

Maybe it's from one too many times hearing that build-up and then Freddie prancing across the stage and giving it his all..

I hope they drop it.
