Comments:
- Nb of songs played written by Brian = Nb of songs played written by Freddie + Roger + John !! One of the more irritating Queen+ trends ... And that's not counting Last Horizon

- Sheer Heart Attack and Made In Heaven are the only LP's with no songs on the setlist

- 18 songs out of 25 were played during the QPR tours. SSOR and WWTLF are resurrected from the Magic Tour, KYA and STL last appeared in late 85, and Flash Intro and WWRY fast date back to the Hot Space Tour days. DSMN was last performed during the Crazy Tour, 33 years ago !

Nice analysis- interesting to know.

I feel they missed the boat a touch in not delving a little deeper - after all, there's only so long they're going to be able to do this, and particularly for the London shows, with such small venues you can guarantee a mostly hardcore fanbase - no need to play hits for hits sake.

White Queen, March of the Black Queen, Millionaire's Waltz, or rare/"never live" things like Leaving Home aint Easy or Sleeping on the Sidewalk would have been lovely additions. Ah well!

Be nice to get 7 things I've never seen live on Saturday. Fingers crossed for a late set addition.

For a Sheer Heart Attack fix I guess we have the Queen Extravaganza. They are doing Killer Queen, Stone Cold Crazy and both versions of In the Lap of the Gods.

The best part of the Q+AL setlist has to be the first 15-20 minutes. Flash/The Hero intro followed by Seven Seas of Rhye, Keep Yourself Alive and WWRY (fast)?? I'm sold!

Interesting. Killer Queen, to me, seems an obvious addition, as well as Bicycle Race, Now I', Here, and Play The Game, especially the last one, which has gotten more popular as the years go on. These are songs I could see them actually considering. As for rare live-ish songs, Heaven for Everyone with Roger singing is my number 1 choice.

Didn't they play Seven Seas of Rhye at the Princes Trust gig last year with Midge Ure and co?

Fair points!

For some reason I considered the tours and not the one-off's like FMT or Prince's Trust.

As for Life Is Real, it was only performed once and with the Russian singer and keyboardist, I reckon it barely qualifies as a Queen performance (it was enjoyable, though!)

Bri seems to be very excited about this mini-tour, there might be a future for this collaboration ...

Setlist-wise it's a shame they absolutely didn't take into consideration the official setlist fan poll

It's thanks to such a poll that Macca added Mrs Vandebilt to his setlist, for instance

I could have gone further and delved into the closed, private function shows, but chose instead to keep to shows that were fairly open to the fans and public alike to keep it respectably fair :-)
