Here's the Zürich set list with a new Free song replacing "Seagull".
This also includes my notes on instrumentation for those who - like myself - aren't so interested in shaky YouTube videos or who don't want to spoil all the visual surprises.

Tie Your Mother Down
ADATR intro riff / Fat Bottomed Girls

I Want It All (finally: on the 2005 tour, the guitar broke down on this one, so we were deprived of this solo)
I Want To Break Free
Stealer (Free song; played for the first time)
Love Of My Life (BM)
'39 (BM & RT on bass drum & percussion; joined by the band after a break in the middle band: JM on acoustic guitar, DM on the upright electric bass, SE on the accordion)

+ Cosmos Rockin’ (guitar out during intro chords, SE improvising a fine rag solo whilst BM changed guitars)
All Right Now (a girl who had fainted being carried out along the catwalk just as PR & BM came beamingly from the other side ... seemed in a bit of dampened spirits as their eyes fell on her)
We Will Rock You (live drums & original “drum” track)
We Are The Champions
God Save The Queen
In 2005 we'd had too much guitar in the mix in Zurich, this time it was bass and drums overkill whilst keys and Paul's vox were low, but standing between the main and the B stages isn't ideal as one gets the main PA in one ear and the B monitors in the other.
Of course, the Swiss audience was calm during the songs as at every concert. ... Don't try to change us - we're enjoying the songs very much that way and prefer to applaud at the end - or, shall we say, whenever the bands seem to explicitly allow us to get noisy for an instant.
