I did a quick scan of songs Queen never did live, based on queenconcerts.com. This also includes Queen + stuff they've done, like SHow Must Go On with Elton John and I Want It All with Paul Rodgers. A couple on there I'm surprised they haven't done. Anyways, anyone know of any mistakes so I can update the list?

Well Tenement Funster was played live but not by Queen. It was Roger Taylor solo.

Can you count the songs on Flash Gorden as well? I know Flash and The Hero were often played but I think they did Attack of the Hawk Men before too. So maybe the others from this album would count. And does God Save the Queen count as being played live if it was just a recording?

I just included it for the sake of it. And I don't include Flash Gordon as it was just a sountrack album.

I forgot all about the solo stuff, but i'm not sure I'll include it or not

Long away was played on verse solo by Brian on a couple occasions on the last tour. I seem to remember seeing Princes of the universe on some magic tour setlist some time ago, but I could be wrong.

Its certainly a surprising list. Hope Brian and Roger look into a couple of the songs for the upcoming tour as they could be great live and would also suit Pauls voice.

Brian played it live on the roof of some big building in London few years back. Apparently Roger also played percussion on the track so it meets the new standards for being played live by Queen.

Jesus and The Night Comes Down were played live in '71-'72 according to many sources, though no bootlegs exist from that period.

Sorry, you're wrong, mate. :) They never played it. For some strange reason, the best rock tracks from A Kind Of Magic were left out of the concert setlists.

Oh yeah! I've only seen that clip on the Night at the Opera anniversery disk with the video DVD and I guess didnt realise that was live since they used it with the album track. I would love to hear that live.

They've only done it live twice. First time at the 10th Anniversary Freddie Tribute (Oceans Club I believe, in London UK - Nov 24, 2001) and at the Queen's Day celebration in Holland later 2002, the latter broadcast on TV.

Brian did perform this on his solo AW tour. Not sure Roger's ever done it live solo, but can anyone prove me wrong?

Parts of "Fun It" were occasionally played as an intro to "Keep Yourself Alive" in the 1979-1981 tours.

"Long Away" was played by Q+PR at a couple of shows on the 2005 tour...all in Japan, I want to say.

Some of those earlier songs may well have been played by the band in the 1970-1972 shows, as they didn't have a ton of material to choose from at the time. Not too much in the way of bootlegs or confirmed setlists aside from the "Freddie Mercury hand-written setlist" that some gullible sap bought off eBay for $1,500+. If it's true, it proves that "Jesus" and "Night Comes Down" were played early on.

Las Palabras de Amor was never played live!
You can't count the accoustic intro played at Bowl as an actual perforamnce of the songs, it was just fiddling around with a melody, losely resembling the intro of "LPDA", nothing more.
