I am so bored with Queen's set list save maybe 20% of it, and it's been this way for 30 years for the most part.

How many more times are they going to end a concert with We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions? How important is it really to them, us, or anyone that Tie Your Mother Down doesn't get skipped, or that Paul Rodgers list hangs on to All Right Now and Can't Get Enough of Your Love???

I realized once again that after earlier listening to the Japan show they shot live with PR 3 years back that the coolest elements by far are the Teo Torriate and Fire + Water additions, and most special of all decisions they made on the tour was the May/Taylor version of I Was Born To Love You. I have 3 points about this:

1. Queen has to be bored near death by now at playing these songs up into the thousands night after night.

2. True Queen die-hards can't possibly be that pumped up about hearing yet another playing of We Are The Champions and it's traditional partners of constant replay, and if they are like me they usually will skip forward these worn out tunes on dvd viewings.

3. True Queen fans like myself would cry out tears of joy everytime something interesting and uncommon made the list, just like the 3rd leg's one additional Queen classic joined the set and gave us Dragon Attack.

4. Even if they felt obligated to give audiences a wealthy load of classic hits, couldn't they drop We Will Rock You, Tie Your Mother Down, We Are The Champions and Radio Ga Ga and instead treat us with replacements such as Headlong, Liar, Save Me and/or Heaven For Everyone?


One Vision was the only interesting addition with the Nelson Mandela set-list. I'd love to see them drop the traditional format and surprise us sometime with White Man or Prophet's Song or Doing Alright, or go really nuts with something like Don't Lose Your Head or Who Needs You.


Surprise us Queen.


P.S. I do contradict this post slightly in that I think the Brighton Rock 3 harmony Brian May solo should always continue it's path of evolution, and every show ought to close out with God Save The Queen of course.

No offense, but you bore me with these long posts about your rants on Queen.

If you don't like what Q+PR are doing, then get some LSD, a Queen vinyl record, and a damn room so you can flashback to 1975!

Go ahead, start a fight with me. I'll stick up for Q+PR anyway....

StoneColdClassicQueen,

I think I speak for the great majority of Queen fans when I say I admire your passion. However, Una999 simply copy and pasted those words onto this waste of a thread. The true writer was AmeriQueen. Here is the original thread.

Are you stupid...that is not a rant against paul rodgers and queen. i'm all in favour of their work just want to see them do some better songs, i'd say the same about the magic tour.

And finally this isn't my post i just posted it again from someone else because i felt like it.

HA ha this is ridiculous...u must really think i don't like paul.

About the magic tour i wish freddie had played more piano songs.

I've nothing against paul rodgers, the way i look at it i'd never have seen queen if it wasn't for him.

In all honesty because i pick at the songs they do that implies i don't like paul rodgers...either you are playing psychology or are just convinced regardless
