There are two reasons why they shouldn't do it:

1) They really don't need yet another reminder of the 1986 tour, and

2) They REALLY don't need yet another taped reminder of their previous singer to jerk out an emotional response from the audience.


For gawd's sakes, they're supposed to be a new band! :P

I personally don't think they would add OV to the Cosmos tour. It was just something to try out with Paul and the lyrics fitted really well to the occasion. Besides I think Brian lost his speed and timing a bit to his licks and there are a lot in OV.

Think it will be the opener, followed by TYMD. They need something instantly recognisable to start with. Theyre not gonna begin with TYMD again, perfect opener as it is. WWRY fast is really not that famous and a lesser song than OV. That pretty much leaves One Vision of the classics.

Theyre probably gonna do TYMD as second song since its such a killer riff and a great way to get the crowd going. Brian obviously thinks highly of it as well. The third song will probably be something with a singalong chorus to really get the crowd into it.

Just my guess though:) I guess well soon see what happens

I think it'd be neat if they tried something new as an opener, instead of the usual WWRY / TYMD / One Vision. Why not go with Innuendo? Or Breakthru? Or Hammer To Fall? Or even a new number? There must be a new, quick rock song that would serve as an appropriate opener.

I just think they shouldn't play it safe with One Vision, because as Tero says, the comparisons to 1986 would be inevitable, and 1986 will win every time, unfortunately.

Hopefully, they'll keep One Vision as a one-off, much like TMLWKY was performed at the 46664 concert in 2005, and then never again.

I was playing about with a "dream setlist" for the new tour, obviously not including new songs we've yet to hear, and thought that it would be great for them to 'break the mould' and do something unexpected. Namely, not to finish with the old WWRY/WATC combo.

Instead I had the slow WWRY as opener with taped stomp/clap and then only Paul singing (verse 1), then Bri in for the solo. Then a la the 2003 versions (eg John Farnham) have the band come in and turn into a heavier version (verse 2/3).

I then had TYMD as second track - it just seems its natural place. Although I'm sure there are many other good suggestions.

While OV wasn't on my setlist (It was between that and Headlong as a replacement for Hammer to Fall, and it lost out), I'm sure it could work as a middle-of-the-set rocker, if we get rid of the intro and start with the guitar riff.

wwry slow as an opener is not a bad idea at all. a new song would be great, presumed theyve got one that could work. it must be really great to compete with what theyve got in their backcatalogue though. they seem to be more like a real group now than a collaboration and i think it will show in the setlists. ive got a feeling though theyve got some surprises to pull out.

Great opener.
"New" song in the Q+PR set.

Would be great if you ask me.

I think they will open with a new song, followed by Tie Your Mother Down.

I have always loved the song so would like to see it live again, however I suspect the reason it was in the Mandela concert was due to the songs content, and relating to his drive and courage.

My money will be on something else openning the new shows

One Vision into Tear It Up into C-lebrity, or maybe just One Vision going into C-lebrity would work very well, imo.
I'm pretty sure that OV will be the start of the concert. Besides the lyrics mistakes, Paul's voice suited the song perfectly anyway.

I think they will too. Rockin' the Cosmos perhaps? The tiny bit we have heard..seems like it would be fitting, name of the alblum, name of the tour.

As far as OV...eeh? I vote not play.

I agree. The only Freddie tribute should be LOML and even then I could do without it...let's move on. The tributes were done in 2005/2006
