So what do you guys think was the best tour for the roadies? When did you think they handled their technical tasks best? I've heard people say 'Crazy Tour' but I love the way they did the 'Magic Tour', they had developed so much more force by then.

The Game / Flash. There were several unexpected problems they had to solve right away, they also had to build some stage set-ups from scratch and the overall chemistry was better. By the time of Magic Tour there were loads of internal problems.


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.

Ego problems, mostly: 'x' roadie thinks it's 'his' stage and he's more important than the others, and so on. They weren't a team as in previous tours.

The american leg of the Hot Space tour, without a doubt.

The way the microphones were handed to Freddie during that tour are just phenomenal! Pure magic!

See, this is where I disagree. I used to think so too until I saw the big screen from Knebworth in the Magic Tour. See the almost ballet-like way they force those microphones in Freddie's strong sweaty hands during WATC. Normally, when putting something in the hands of a man so ghastly sweaty, the microphone would have fallen straight out of his hand. But not there. You can't fake professionality like that.

I think the best had to be the Queen + Paul Rodgers tour.

The way they got Zombie Freddie to play Bohemian Rhapsody flawlessly every single night.

Awesome... AND Creepy.

The Crazy Tour was when the roadies finally got the colour of the M&Ms right, so I vote for that.

And the manager didn't think hiring people outside the colour-blind club would pay off...

I'd say their Earl's Court show....pure audio bliss!

Or silence is golden as well.
