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

It ain't about how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit: how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!

The best they did : just before they rise into a megaband, fred is a excellent & entertainer at the same time. Great setlist. Great visual show.

I;m sorry only a few excellent recordings of this tour excists today.... Would sell my mother for a excellent pro recording from the spring european tour...

In terms of the musical performances, gotta say that The Opera Tour through to the Crazy Tour had the best tours!


I always knew I was a star And now, the rest of the world seems to agree with me-Freddie Mercury

Of course they were real concerts. What evidence is there to suggest that they were not real. It would be a great shame if a band who released an album like Queen II, released a song like Bohemian Rhapsody, perform such a wounderful concert such as Montreal/ Live Aid to later release an album like Hot Space and the Works which saw Queen become the Freddie Mercury group, release a song such as Body Language and perform a concert which was not real.

what I meant is that , compared to the new concerts , new generations (Lady Gaga , Justin Bieber , Jonas Brothers , Miley Cyrus ,etc ) ,
these if they were true concerts :
Concerts that only the queen could do
in summary , magical concerts , Ej :
London '86 (two nights) - 72,000 each
Budapest 7-27-86 - 80,000
Mannheim 6-21-86 - 85,000
Slane 7-5-86 - 95,000 (some reports claim 110,000)
Stevenage 8-9-86 - 120,000 (some reports claim 200,000)
compared with now, these were magic concerts (:
