I saw many bootlegs from this tour, and I was in Belgrade Arena. Honestly, that was one of the best performances in this tour till now.



I am sure that they now regret the fact that it was the first time they were in Belgrade.



I'll post a setlist later, because I have to work...i just wanted to tell you that it wasn't canceled. Almost 20.000 fans sung every song from begining till the end (except drum and guitar solo lol).  







Again, WHAT A GREAT SHOW!!!!! WOW!!!! :)

I think there's a difference between hearing a bootleg and hearing a band live, trust me :) The Budapest concert wasn't any exceptional so I guess the Belgrade one will hardly be significantly better. Maybe better audience - Budapest was the worst selling gig of the tour.

why would they cancel the gig when there are so many people here in belgrade who couldn't wait to see them? Plus there were a lot of people coming from the region, Croatia, Bulgaria, Slovenia... The concert was fabulous, as was the audience - I truly believe we left a huge impression on the band, since they didn't know what to expect. I could see tears in Brian's eyes... yes, I was that close to the stage. :) Honestly, I think this was the best concert both the band and the fans could imagine. The feelings and the vibe were so strong... Thank you guys, you did a great job!
kisses from belgrade :*

It can hold 20.000 people, but yesterday they were around 12.000-13.000 people there. I was there also and I will post some of the photos I took with my mobile phone. Does somebody have photos or videos?

I was there too!!! I didn't know there is so many fans that live near Serbia... I am from Smederevo, which is about an hour from Belgrade...

The show was amazing!!! There were so many great moments! Brian was on fire!!!! Solo on I Want It All was just incredible... And I think he was very suprised when he heard the crowd singing '39 and then he stopped singing and let the crowd sing the chorus!!!
The Show Must Go On was the most amazing song on the show...

Anyway, I'm searching for the audio bootlegs from this tour...please give me a hint where can I dowload them...

Hello to all the people from Balkan! Queen rocks!

me and my girlfriend came to belgrade with a few friends (day before we were in budapest) and had time of our lives! that was the greatest show i (and she) have been too, crowd was great, crowd's reaction took me (and certainly the band) by suprise, such a great reaction to the band, you could se on QPR faces that they were amazed. i heard a little bit of soundcheck, bits of guitar solo. no way there was only 11000 people, 15-16000 is more like it.

I was there.

I got the impression the band came onstage feeling tired and slightly nervous about the glitchy equipment, but the crowd's loving reaction gave them the strength to play one of the best concerts I've ever had the luck of attending. The audience was desperate to sing every single word - and even "pa pa pam" to bass lines - and, in accordance with the famous Balkan hospitality, cheer wildly at the slightest opportunity. The band rewarded that with emotional performances and great virtuosity.

The first part opened to a slightly shortened version of Hammer To Fall, then continued with classics Tie Your Mother Down, Fat Bottomed Girls, Another One Bites The Dust, I Want It All, I Want To Break Free. Then they introduced two new songs, C-Lebrity and Surf's Up…School's Out (with Paul on fire with his harmonica), to great response. The stage cleared, with only Paul left to sing and strum an acoustic Seagull.

The second, more intimate, part began with Brian retreating to the satellite stage. He simply stated "I'm kinda lost for words... We didn't know what to expect from Belgrade... wow... Thank you for this!" and introduced Love of My Life as "a song written by a great friend who was with us for many years... his name was Freddie Mercury." The audience sang the song throughout.

Brian then introduced '39 as "an old Serbian folk song - I'm lying through my teeth! You can sing, you can dance, you can clap, you can take your clothes off" - and once again, the crowd sang every single word flawlessly. He was then joined by Roger on bass drum, Danny on fretless double bass, Spike on accordion(!) and Jamie on another guitar for a cool new version of the same song.

Next piece is, I believe, billed throughout the tour as the "Bass Solo." Basically, Danny handles the neck of his double bass while Roger drums on it, playing famous Queen bass riffs such as Another One Bites the Dust and Under Pressure. It was simply breathtaking.

Roger then proceeded to steal the show by playing his Drum Solo, starting with a bass drum and a snare and incorporating seamlessly every new piece of kit as it was put on the satellite stage by technicians. Fortified by Brian's guitar, he sang I'm Love With My Car, A Kind of Magic and opened the album version of the heart-shredding Say It's Not True.

Then Paul took over the piano smuggled on the main stage and led Bad Company by Bad Company from Bad Company, with footage on video wall paying tribute to his old band. Next followed We Believe and the best Brian's Solo I've ever heard, mixing Now I'm Here, Brighton Rock, Last Horizon and Bijou with recorded Freddie on vocals - as well as a huge bag of all new tricks.

Then followed full band performances of Radio Gaga, Crazy Little Thing Called Love and The Show Must Go On, with audience, once again, singing every tune. The last on the main set was Bohemian Rhapsody, done, as in 2005, as a duet between a recorded Freddie and Paul on stage.

The encore, predictably, opened with playful, showing-off versions of Cosmos Rockin' and All Right Now, and then came to an emotional end with We Will Rock You and We're The Champions.

As the crowd dissolved, you could see huge wide grins lazily bobbing towards the exit.

So, yeah, I was there. Fuckin' glad I did.

My highlights were: both solos (well, all three solos); I Want to Break Free, which showed Paul never tackles the same song the same way twice; Surf's Up... School's Out, a charged, hypnotic live number; The Show Must Go On, and All Right Now.

But my biggest, biggest highlight was the crowd of true and loyal fans who can party hard.

And many, many thanks to Queenside and his wonderful girlfriend, who grabbed me by the collar and shoved me in the best standing spot, the first row by the satellite stage.

Well, dude, in fact he's been actually doing the same in every show since the very first gig in Kharkov ... anyway, I'm sure the audience in Belgrade really rocked !! [img=/images/smiley/msn/thumbs_up.gif][/img]

Bloody fantastic show, undescribable! I know many people which didn't wanna come to see this version of Queen (maybe that's one of a reaaons why the show was far from sold out), and I can only say - they made a huuuge mistake! Hey, it's worth goin' even only to have some tea with Dr. May! :D

One guy told me that he recorded whole show with a camera, so I'm expecting him to call me when he transfer it on a DVD, I don't know when that will happen, maybe next year lol, but I will share it via some torrent or somethin' when I get it (although my upload speed can't bee higher than 18kB/s)...

I have been to many gigs over the last 2 tours. The audience reaction here compares to Japan in 2005 in my opinion, the best show of this tour so far. I've been to 16 gigs, this was my favourite. I am writing this after all the UK gigs.

There was a special atmosphere there. Brian did look a little tired to start with, but he (and the band) really seemed to enjoy the gig. Such a shame this wan't filmed.

Still no audio or video recording from Serbia? There are several recordings from every gig of this tour but I can't come across anything from Serbia.
