Great news, great video, great song, great voice.


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.

I said this in another post ...

Brian, Roger, Spike, Jamie, and Danny should do a theater tour playing the Queen songs that Brian and Roger sang
and some of the songs that they wrote, but Freddie sang.


Brian May: "I like KISS a lot. I have a great regard for KISS 'cause it's all-out. They just had their vision, they had their dream, and they damn well went for it."

That would be great, but I'm sure they could fill venues a lot bigger than theatres. I think 2000-3000 people wouldn't be a problem at all.

I think the point of doing theatres rather than arenas is so that there is a more intimate feel to the gigs, which lends itself to a more relaxed atmosphere in which to play the non hits albums tracks, rather than the 'sheds' which are more suited to the 'greatest hits' tours

Apparently they also did I'm in Love With My Car, Long Away, and Sleeping on the Sidewalk.  If only they'd take this show on the road and do the few-thousand seaters.  Clearly they enjoy playing the obscure stuff.

Modern Times Rock´n Roll
Some Day One Day
She Makes Me
Good Company
Drowse
Fight From the Inside
Leaving Home Ain´t Easy
Fun It ....

And many other rare Brian/Roger compositions that Freddie sang ....

The really should do that!

The die-hards would be thrilled, the band would enjoy it and anyone that's interested would get to know another side of Queen. Those songs are just as much Queen songs as the ones sung by Freddie. Actually, songs like Tenement Funster and Sleeping on the sidewalk and Long away are among my very favourites!

It has to be said: there's nothing like seeing Brian and Rog together. They start to play and it's Queen. Ok, you miss the other two but still, a part of Queen is better than no Queen.

I wish there was a nice audience recording of that set!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What was the date of this gig?


It's late, but it's time to set me free

It's late, yes I know but there's no way it has to be

Too late, so let the fire take our bodies this night

So late, so let the waters take our guilt in the t

I would pay any amount of money and travel anywhere in the world to see a show where Roger performed Drowse. Seriously.

I bet if someone tried to sell it to Brian that way, he'd be game!

Ha ha haha.  You were just funny on accident.  Like when my hungover friend working at the shoe store said she couldn't see two feet in front of her.

I would travel the thousand of miles required and go to several shows if they toured like that.  Tenement Funster is one of those songs that more music fans who don't really know Queen should hear..they'd appreciate Queen more.  Same with Long Away.   Sleeping on the Sidewalk, live? Wow!
