Dear all,

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.

Queen, Hallenstadion Zürich, 29Sep2008
20:01 – 22:15

(Cosmos Rocks intro)
Surfs Up … Schools Out! (beginning on tape, incl. first scream; played up to and incl. the second chorus; PR on harmonica)
Tie Your Mother Down
ADATR intro riff / Fat Bottomed Girls
Another One Bites The Dust
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
C-lebrity
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)
Roger Medley: Bass solo (with Danny) / Drum solo (as the set is being built around him) / I'm In Love With My Car
A Kind Of Magic (RT on drums & vocals)
Say It's Not True (SM on keytar)
Paul Medley: Bad Company (PR on electric grand piano) / Feel Like Making Love (PR on harmonica)
Brian Medley: Guitar solo / Bijou (up to and including the verse) / Last Horizon
Radio Ga Ga
Crazy Little Thing Called Love (PR on acoustic guitar during first verse)
The Show Must Go On
Bohemian Rhapsody (live band and FM vocals from WWRY/Montreal; opera section tape; very end: trade between FM-PR-FM-PR-audience-band)

+ 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.

Best regards,
Jan

According to Brian's site, this was a shortened version. Same with Radio Ga Ga and Cosmos Rocks - although Jan explained why for the latter song.

Stealer was indeed a full band version and went down very well, so the Munich crowd may brace themselves for a stomper!

As for AKOM, my blurred - in retrospect - perception was not at all that it was less than complete; where I noticed that a song was (SU...SO, Bijou), I stated so. Cosmos Rockin' wasn't shortened but extended for a few bars during the intro until Brian had changed his guitar and they really lept into the tune.
Radio Ga Ga and CR' were definitely performed in their entirety.

Since I don't follow Paul and don't have any of his albums other than Free Live, I have a hard time comparing his 'good' and 'bad' nights in recent years. Again, I felt that his vocals were rather low in the mix, therefore it's even more tricky to fathom whether he had been in anything but a good state.

Same for Brian on guitar, if you will: the bum notes and immediate chromatic escape routes have been part of his stage persona at least since I first saw him on the Another World Tour ten years ago. ;-)

Roger: AAAAAAH, so to say. He certainly seemed to be in good mood for some sillitude on the B stage and it was only during CR' that I felt the band's tempo was increasing some, but that might have been just my excitement, ha ha!

i think the begining of a show for Queen is trdtionaly a place for a new album trak, the last 3 tours being prime example, ie

works tour,
machines intro/tear it up , tie your mother down

magic tour
one vsion intro/one vision, tie your mother down

2005 tour
loose yourself intro/reaching out, tie your mother down (that counts by the way haha, reaching out was from muddy water blues feturing brian)

the cosmos rocks
cosmos rocks intro/srufs up schools out, tie your mother down

its also seems fitting to me that they have droped it, its a new tour. also its a great song, and the masses cant compare it yet becasue one vision is a great classis, surfs ups from a new album.
im glad they have droped it.

any opinions?

I think maybe they should replace TYMD with the full version of One Vision.


tymd is a bit stale to be honest, maybe it should be moved back into the encore so it has more momentum behind it

Yes, I know, and I respect your opinion, but One Vision is the best show intro for a Queen concerts, and They played it in Ukrania and Moscow, Why not at the present?. And one more thing, the set list was of 33 tracks, and now 24 or 25, do you know why?.



Thanks my friend!!

Oh joy, the WWRY backing track is back.

Hypocrites, bitching about lip synching but using backing tracks themselves.

I think the Muddy Water Blues track that Brian Played on was called I'm Ready  & Reaching Out was the stand alone Charity single. please correct me if I'm wrong???


Joyful the sound
