I can only say that it was spectacular. The crowd lost their bearings when Mr. May and Mr. Taylor appeared. I am so fortunate! But the best thing for me, is that I heard them rehearse every day the week before the concert. The studio where the bands were rehearsing is in the same complex as my martial arts dojang. I must tell you that my martial arts improved DRAMATICALLY for that week - with Bohemian Rhapsody and the rest of the medley to inspire us, we all trained like we were in the army! It was spectacular and I will never ever outlive it. Much love to all, Celeste

Dear Sir, or Madam
A hell hole? I think you need to come and visit Cape Town! It is a beautiful city. And yes, I think you should be jealous! I would be! I am so jealous of you guys in the States - you see so many amazing things on a regular basis! :p

why should I be jealous? - I attended Queen concerts in the dim and distant past. I don't need to be jealous of anyone who sees Queen+

Celeste, I'm (in a sane way) jealous of you. I perfectly understood what you meant about that about being jealous. There isn't such a lot of oportunities to see Brian and Roger live nowadays, and you've had a real and fortuneable lucky, besides of that about the rehearshals.

Forget him, he was ironic, but I don't find South Africa as a hell hole. It is very beautiful, yes.

Not the slightest bit jealous - Queen+ is but a pale shadow of Queen. Queen + is nothing but Two desperate old men clinging onto their glory days.

Oh dear what a very sad person you are. I wish you guys would kick ya Asses out of the past!

Freddies dead get on and deal with it. Queen will never be the same as they were at there peak but Brian & Roger have every right to use the Queen name and in my humble opinion the new stuff they have done for 46664 is excellent.

I still get the same buzz from this stuff as I did all those years ago when I first heard KYA. They should not and will not try to emulate the past and working with musicians from around the world is a brilliant idea.

I would much rather have this Queen than no Queen at all. Since 1992 I have dreamed of seeing Queen perform again and at last my dreams are being answered.

They ROCKED BIG TIME on Saturday and the world knows it

Hey what do I know I've only ever saw Queen 36 times and been a fan since Q1 and yes I'm jealous

Yes, a sad person indeed. Very very sad. They are still talented - THE BEST. I am a hardass and they brought me to scream like a baby at the concert and cry like a baby when I watched the televised version afterwards, alone at home. They are masters of the universe, and any Queen is better than no Queen at all.

Hey to South Africa!

I am not going to spoil your moment so enjoy it:
I am very jealous!! :-)
The only thing I have seen that was closest to Queen was We Will Rock You in London.
And that's it. (apart from videos and dvds)
So you are very lucky and I absolutely understand your excitement. Most of the Queen stuff (and not just Queen) happens in Europe and US (and Oz with WWRY). I am very happy for you that you enjoyed it so much!

Rock On!

That all sounds great Jacklyn - especially hearing them when you were in the gym! Inspiring indeed.

Not sad at all, quite content in fact.

Contented LOL I guess we are each entitled to our own opinion after all music is a very personal thing. I find it irratating tho when people slag off someone for trying good or bad just because it doesn't appeal to them. I hate pop idol but wouldn't slag off the entrants because at least they've got the balls to get up their and have a go. brian & Roger don't need to do this for any other reason than they want to so good luck to them I say.

Yes, let us not forget why they are doing this! It's all for a very good cause. And I don't care about Happy-Day's comment - why don't you go and do a couple of riffs on the guitar on stage in front of 3 billion people and get them to applaud? I salute Roger Taylor and Brian May!!!

Jacklyn, try to ignore some of the guys on here, they say they are not jealous but really they are. I saw Queen 11 times in their peak, i also attended the Freddie Mercury tribute concert at Wembley, but i wish i could have been in South Africa. Not jealous, not much.


There must be more to life than this.
