We got Brian doing You're My Best Friend, train wrecks of WWRY fast and TYMD, some very touching between song stuff, AL saying 'Deacon' when introducing the guys (I'll need to check the video). But with all that, a solid 8/10 from me. I fucking hate AL fans and his mannerisms and also camera phones need to be uninvented. But it was funny seeing all the people filming suddenly panic during the RGG choruses as they realised they can't do both. One woman infront of me spent Bohemian Rhapsody deleting old pictures off her phone and missed the song. Dickhead.

They looked and sounded really tired and concentration wandered quite a bit. Nice to hear bits of White Man, Liar and Get Down Make Love in the mix. I would've ditched that whole AOBTD and Dragon Attack dirge. But soooooooooooo glad I went.

Brian Broke a string during TYMD & had to change his original Red Special for copy.


Joyful the sound

Yup. It was ballsed up long before that though. I didn't like that headset mic he used and I don't think he did either by the end when he threw it off. It was a very American Idol idea of what a rock band do. As an aside, I think the band could easily have carried on TYMD to an abrupt end (it was 3/4 of the way through anyway) with a wounded guitar... after all, WWRY was next.

Had a great time in London, just got back! My first time ever to experience Queen live.

The concert was phenomenol! Sold out and packed in like sardines for hours - but worth it. Brian was very appreciative of the audience turnout, as if that would ever be in doubt! We were a heaving mass of Queen fans down in front. So many awesome moments. Adam delivered and changed several times, including a huge red furry jacket during dragon attack. He was sublime on gaga and many other songs.

Brian brought us to tears with Love of My life and his Last Horizon solo. When you travel so far, experiencing these things can just gobsmack you. It means so much to a Queen fan. I love listening to Brian's banter with the crowd. So real, so honest.

Rogers's AKOM, UP, DOOL ... Quite enjoyable.

The program book is very nice with lots of Hammy 75 photos provided. A real sense of history coming across in the program book.

I would see them again for more next time. Thank you Brian, Roger and Adam! The pics from Hammy are great, but have you seen the Poland pics on Brian's site? Huge! I want a stadium, open air next time too.

"They looked and sounded really tired and concentration wandered quite a bit" ... wtf?!?!? - Not at all. They were absolutely brilliant and on top form - plus there were a few laughs to be had... The face Brian made after the little *ping* during Love of my life, and some of the expressions Adam made during Somebody to Love. All good fun. It was emotional at times too, especially seeing Freddie on the screen - and anyone could see Brian was clearly proud of the job Adam was doing, mostly through Another one bites the dust - which was one of the highlights with the crowd taking turns to sing. Towards the end when Brian took lead on Tie your mother down, there were a few problems with the headset and the guitar string, but with the love coming from the audience it didn't matter at all, after all, it was hardly his fault, and despite difficulties, he got through it well. Bohemian Rhapsody was amazing too. Hell, the whole show was!!! I would definitely see them with Adam Lambert again if the opportunity arose.

In your opinion, not in Dysan's.  Are you right, and Dysan wrong?

No! In Spider-man's opinion. And the Pink Panther is right. And Scooby Doo is wrong.
What a stupid reply from you.

Err, no.  Dysan said "They looked and sounded really tired and concentration wandered quite a bit", you said  "... wtf?!?!? - Not at all. They were absolutely brilliant and on top form."

If you say WTF and not at all, you are questioning or doubting Dysan's ability to witness things, right?  So if they were brilliant, Dysan was wrong and you are right, no?  So Dysan's opinion is worth less than yours because you disagree with them, right?  Not that difficult a question, but with that retarded reply I think you're unable to answer without cartoon friends helping you.

You're making yourself look more and more of a numbnut to me with every word you write. Do I really need to say "in my opinion" every time after I share my opinion on something? And does my opinion, no-matter how strongly I feel about a particular subject automatically mean someone else hasn't the right to their opinion? Just because I believe what I do - with what I witnessed with my ears and eyes - does that mean I believe his view carries any less weight to him? Or possibly others who share the same view? Or does it mean that just because I say "WTF!?!? - Not at all?" that I don't value that he has an opinion on the matter simply because I disagree with it?

Well, you wouldn't know - because you're not me. But - you appeared to assume I was someone who needed to be told "In your opinion, not in Dysan's"
You know, maybe the whole assuming thing isn't always such a great idea?

You super-duper internet guru, you.

in my opinion ;-) I thought they were on top form, Both Brian & Roger were on fire. Personally I thought the band just got better & better on this mini tour & this final gig was the better of the 2 that I did. But "Day dop" is entitled to their opinion, even though in my opinion "Day dop" is way off.

Day Dop commented upon an opinion, and you attempt to sort opinions.

One observer will say the sky is blue and another observer will claim it gray. Who to believe? Each person is directly informed best from the strength of their own experience.

I say resist being a bootlicker to anyone else and instead go and see and hear and think with your own mind and heart. I say heart because emotions are specific to the person and if you get a lump in your throat that is a physical manifestation that your experience and response are really heartfelt and really truthful to you in the most personal way.
