I wonder why Queen (+PR) chose not to play any different songs this tour - they are basicly repeating the songs they did in 05 (and adding some numbers from CR)! Both (Q+PR) have a wonderful backcatalogue of songs - but they play the same songs every night. I know for a fact that they are great musicans - so I wonder: Do they think the fans expect them to do the same "Greatest Hits" package all the time? I could do with songs like "Save Me" or "Innuendo" - which would fit PRs style perfectly - from time to time!

Sorry that no one has answered so I'll reply in the style of other queenzoners:

kingogre & ray d o'gaga: It's all good. get over it.

Erin: I hope the Foo Fighters doa cover of Innuendo. That would be great!

Pieter: Indeed.

YourValentine & Mr Scully: I dont care what they play, I've bought tickets for every show on the tour. I have abandoned my home, family and job in the hope of hearing 'It's Late' live just one more time.   

PG: I'll give you ten pounds for it.

Tero: Doing the same stuff over and over saves on rehearsals, which in turn saves on electricty costs. Literally dozens of pounds are saved by using this cold and calculated tactic to swindle Queen fans out of their hard earned moolah.

Treasure Moment: It's because they are sheep. Freddie Mercury was Queen and THIS is not Queen, no matter what songs they play. I hate bands like The Darkness because they rip off Queen. BTW you can listen to my new song which sounds exactly like Queen at my website. We played to 100,000 people at our local Starbucks. I will soon post a video to prove it. back to the question: Brian May went to university and universities produce only mindless sheep. That's why they play the same songs over and over, becasue they're programmed to. Can't talk any more right now as I'm off to class at university.

Jake: It's depressing. I feel like killing myself. NO I DON'T! I WAS JUST KIDDING! I've started a poll just in case anyone doesn't know just how WaCkY I am!

Fatty:
My dog's got no nose
How does he smell?
Like Jake. Minging.

Somebodywholoves: Pay attention to me, I'm so lonely.

Bad Horsie: It doesn't matter what they play as long as they don't invite Jimmy Page onto the stage. That guy can't shred. Sloppy man, just sloppy.

Sebonka12: Freddie Mercury still has aids.

Thomas Quinn: If they don't play songs from the new album, a pan-European war will surely follow. It's inevitable: I read it in a history book.

Gym Bitch: As soon as I can I'm going to upload ALL the songs from the tour in mp3.

Inu-Liger: I hate Treasure Moment.

Lisser: I blame the poor (kidding Lisser!)

Music Man: Best leave it to market forces to decide the tracklist. Any interference in that will only result in a poorer setlist.

You forgot Queen Archivist:

I SUPPOSE IF QUEEN "FANS" WOULD BE MORE GRATEFUL FOR WHAT THEY GOT, THE BAND MIGHT FEEL LIKE PLAYING A SURPRISE.

Good spot.

Also

Queenzone Ghost: QUEEN PLAY ALL THE HITS ON CURRENT TOUR AND ONLY ONE OR TWO FROM COSMOS ROCKS, WHICH IS, BTW, AVAILABLE AT QUEENONLINE. SOURCE: www.queenonline.com

Clear: It's a disgrace. I took my ticket back to the shop, and returned all the tour merchandise I bought. Honest.

ruth.olivier: is the concert available in FLAC? 

Yara: Is rock music really the music of the soul? I remember yadda yadda yadda yadda yadda yadda yadda yadda yadda yadda (goes on for rest of page)

I'm glad somebody 'ghost' posted Clear..
 I was gonna with:
Clear: It's Scandalous, they ripped off my life savings, I've been a fan since 1823 and I had to bring the tour back to the shop. RING THEM if you don't believe me. I exchanged it for a Take That gig and a packet of blue buttons. ITS FUCKING TRUE

But, seriously, Holly, I may not know many of those posters, but yours made me crack up. Well done.


Throw it in the lake, dear

Nice to be namechecked:)

Though I quite agree that the setlist is safe/boring compared to what they could do.

Dead right. I love some of the new stuff and am disapointed with the set list.
Iam sure it will still be a great gig but it could have been much better.
(going to glasgow & newcastle gigs) would love to have heard save me,
innuendo, and maybe spread your wings, liar,ogre battle,and keep yourself alive.
all songs paul could sing.
Seems they are catering for the masses. and not the original die hards who
have been with them from the start.



I lie in wait with open eyes.

I am a bit disappointed but not surprised really. They never toured for the die-hards and they have got Paul to think about, its not easy to perform material that he hardly knows in front of tens of thousands of people. Some who will scrutinise every tone he takes. So I can understand if they do the safe songs.

The tour has changed in one major way from the last and that is that they now perform more as a band whereas the last time they were more three solo artists working together. Brians and Rogers solo spots have been toned down a bit and Paul is on stage a lot more.

I would still have loved to hear some unplayed songs from their later career, some of Brians and Rogers lesser known vocals or why not even some solo tracks. Bad Company and the stealer are welcome additions though.
The taped Bohemian Rhapsody is not to my taste at all but I havent seen it live so I dont know how it works then.
