Would be interested on reading comments on what you think of Boyzone's recent performance of their Queen medley:

Personally this really makes me cringe - what the hell were they thinking of? I dread to think what we'll get next - maybe Borat to play Freddie Mercury in new biograhical film:

Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with other artists that cover a Queen song during a concert. I'm fine with that as long as it's done in a respectfull way. Robbie Williams, Mika, Katy Perry, Greenday, Foo Fighters etc all did queen songs during their live shows and all showed respect to Queen (and Freddie)

But the thing Boyzone did is just not respectfull at all..
They should be ashamed of themselves. Really horrible. The suits, the moves, the "ice ice baby" - bit.
Damn. I wonder if those tossers would have done the same if Freddie was still alive.

Well, if nothing else these guys make Freddie stand out as the great singer he was ;-)

I hope I'm taking your comments wrong - but are you for real? I think Boyzone should be ashamed personally. This isn't a tribute - it's taking the p***

HITMAN- I am for real. I have my opinion and you've got yours. I think that Boyzone are into Queen music (or Freddie alone) and they just wanted to pay respect to F.M. in their own way. Fair enough, perhaps it wasn't the best Queen medley ever performed but at least guys bothered to try and do that. Even Celine Dion & P!nk sang couple of Queen songs during their gigs, so, why not...?!

Cheesy as f**k!  However, kind of charming to see a tribute.  You have to say without a doubt that Freddie would have loved it!

You're not lacking oxygen when tying this (with your free hand), are you Hutchence?

My sister phoned me whilst at their gig in cardiff. Unfortunatly i couldn't make it out over the phone.
She text me later and said it was wicked, and that i would of loved it.
All i can say is that it was damn loud.
Great to now that modern bands would rather play Queen songs than their own!!!!!

That's only the beginning: a month later, a Queen + Boyzone tour will be announced and Brian and Roger will claim Stephen was Freddie's favourite singer.



John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

The only worse insult I can think than this would have been if Westlife done the medley too.

A bunch of over rated Kareoke singers.
