I enjoyed listening to concerts which are opened with One Vision. As far as I can see this are only a few on the recent tour. Does anybody know why, or which concerts in 2008 Queen opened with One Vision?

I don't count intro tapes as 'openers'. ;-)

Oh, btw... your reply is the one that is 'not exactly true'.
You forgot the time that t was cosmos rocks intro tape - surf's up intro tape - TYMD! :-P

Queen + pr should open their shows with Innuendo, like they do in "We will rock you".


Innuendo or Kashmir? Both awesome!

Yeah! And they should add a terrible storyline to their songs, which have nothing to do with the songs whatsoever, like they do in We Will Rock You

I'd imagine the guys opened with One Vision for a while because they'd been rehearsing it for the 46664 show, and they knew that they could pull it off while they cleaned up the Surf's Up intro that they tried next.

One Vision was and it still is the better choice to open the concerts.

Would have loved to have heard Now I'm Here!! Why did they forget this one!!

This song is awesome on Live at Wembley!!  This is more nostalgic than One Vision!!

Brian played it on his solo tours so maybe should have been played.






We all of us deeply apologise for this god forsaken shit heap of a building...but we will make it rock.

With all due respect to Roger, he wouldnt have been able to play Now Im Here I reckon, in fact, I'd bet they considered it at some point and decided against it for that reason.
He comments on it on the Wembley DVD documentary I think - basically saying the bit where they drums kick off good style at the beginning after "Im just a......" was knackering to play - if he found that knackering in '86 I cant see him being able to handle it these days - particularly given his slightly....more ample frame.

I remember there being a bit during the Brixton gig in '05 where he looked like he was going to die - I think Spike actually was like "you alright Rog?" cos he was gasping, lol. Sure, he's got back some match fitness since then, but I dont see Now Im Here ever getting rolled out again in any future live appearances.

The intro on the 2005 tour is probably the most imaginitive opening of any Queen tour so far, bar none. The 2008 tour was probably the most unimaginitive one...
