predicable responses I guess - would you expect them to play 'Sleeping on the Sidewalk' or 'Staying Power' instead or maybe the b side to Under Pressure....(which was actualy quite good) - 2nd post - well....what exactly was wrong with Adam Lambert, did you see the shows? - with the greatest respect it was 1000% better than Brian's voice - of course you could just not watch it, but I'm sure you will and still complain afterwards!

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the Doc will be performing with Jessie J apparently.

I really hate that price tag song of hers. Really fucking hypocritical and awful.

let's guess which songs they will play, probably will be WWRY and WATC, songs that we never hear in life, right?

loving the responses to this post ! maybe you all need to look at this from the perspective of a member of the general public who is not a dire-hard Queen fan who can name the most obscure track (even from the Flash Gordon album!) - It's the closing ceremony of the Olympics....maybe WATC is quite a good choice for a change!

Guys, grow up. If you like Roger and Brian, this is good. If you don't, shut up and move along.

I posted a couple of weeks ago they were doing WWRY with Jessie J. Might not be too bad, who knows? Can't see them doing WATC though, the line 'No time for losers' is not quite in the Olympic spirit.

And if you want even more obvious song choice than this, Duran Duran playing Rio (the "2016 mix").

Brian (No Roger) at the closing ceremony???? From the leaks that have come out in the past day or two it sounds like it may only be Brian playing at the closing ceremony, along with Jesse J.

What happened to Roger?

Although if you look at one of the pic's Brian posted on his soabpox today it looks like Roger a bit from the back, facing Brian, during a rehearsal with Jesse J so I could easily be wrong.

If the post from his soapbox below is any indication it looks like Brian may be doing a solo version of God Save The Queen.

Some people love to spoil surprises, don't they? Especially the Daily Mail.
It's not clever, or helpful. I hope they are ashamed.
It would have been be so easy for me blurt everything out on my website, and publish pictures … but I respected the Team's wishes that we try to keep it all nice surprise.
Well, there's one surprise which the Mail did not get hold of, and neither will they, until the moment I walk out there.
I hope it brings spontaneous joy, as a completely live moment, shared by 800,000 people. I will be out there 'without a safety net'.

Love

Bri

Well. The guys are playing live. Thats all that matters for me now. I dont (well almost) care who the play with anymore. We wont ever get the "old Queen" back, so i just enjoy to watch those two guys live.


What a great band!

All true. . .

There are certain songs that artists will always. Play because they are so much part of the artists history and are so well known outside of just the fan base.

WWRY is known around the world, it's easy to sing along too, it gets a stadium clapping it gets a reaction.

This is an international event of which Queen are a tiny cog, with a limited amount of time to make an impression and connect what do you really expect,

Roger + Brian - obviously Roger in the picture + my link to Rogers' wife's twitter sort of means he is probably there anyway! - In regard to only referencing Brian in the press this is normal - again from a 'general public' point of view Brian is always the visible presence of anything Queen nowadays

Wouldn't it be great if John Deacon decided to come back for the GRANDDADDY of the world stage for just one gig with Brian and Roger...for the 2012 Olympic Closing ceremonies ?

Could it happen ??

Maybe John Deacon will come on and attempt The Discus with a copy of the Stormtroopers RSD pink 7" ?

Now THAT I would pay to see !
