Did anyone go to WWRY last night?

How long were Brian and Roger on stage for? Just Bo Rhap at the end?

Would have love to have gone! It's a fantastic show

Yes, I was there,  Brian came up from the trap door during the Bo Rhap guitar solo, as normal & then left the stage for the operatic section & then came back on for the rock section, just as Roger & his new "RT"  skinned kit came up through the floor.

Brian & Roger only performed on "Bo Rhap" & then did a brief speech.

Great night, but I wished it could have been more,  could be, that they were saving themselves for tonight, Maybe if they turn up ;-)

Here's a clip from youtube:-

I was there!

It was incredible... Everyone (I guess) thought the show was over, and suddenly THEY came up on stage... :)

It's the only time I've seen the musical, so I couldn't belive it...

Here's something that I couldn't believe:-   10th may   Brian & Roger played on half of  Bohemian Rhapsody.  The next night on the 11th May,  at the Taylor Hawkins gig they did:-  Im in Love with My Car,  Long away, Sleeping on the side walk, Tenement Funster  + 2 more.

Feel a bit short changed that we at the dominion got the short end of the stick,  what a bummer that I didn't go to the Coattail Riders gig :-(   Brian & Roger must love the Taylor Hawkins fans, more than their loyal QUEEN Fans.

Well, here you have something about it. Brian says on Brianmay.com:

"It was a great fun night. [Tue 11 May 2010] Roger and I had a blast. La Scala pulsed to something amazing .. the great new Taylor Hawkins band - the COAT TAIL RIDERS, and some pals who dropped in to lend a hand. It was all very spontaneous, like the Old Days, really, and .... yes, it was NOT my idea for me to sing two songs in the encore section! I'd rather have hammered out TYMD with Taylor singing. But Taylor is committed to his idea of .... ah, well, I can't tell you yet ... but he has a plan for us! Respects to the amazing young Rufus Taylor too ... he's the only drummer who has EVER made me worry about my ears ... except Chad Smith!!!!!
Thanks for a great reception. Maybe we should do this kind of thing more often ! (maybe not! ha ha.)"

Hmmm!!!   Interesting statement  from Brian.    I wonder if the 2 Taylors tour/gigs  in the autum might progress into another QUEEN+  venture??    QUEEN+ Taylor Hawkins????    just a thought!!!!
