My favourite intro is definately Procession and Flash theme + The Hero.
What's your favourite intro?

I like the "One Vision"-intro during the Magic-tour and the "Machines"-intro during the Works-tour. I still have goose pimples when I listen to this and when the four enter the stage.

The tour of 1977,the intro to A Day at the Races is played on tape, which in turn leads to Brian playing the first rift of Tie your mother down, then huge thunder flashes explode and Fred and the boys come through the the dry ice and let rip, deafning, blinding and brilliant.

I love the Magic Tour One Vision intro too.
When I listen it from Live Magic, as loud I can, it is sooo awesome!

From a personal point of view I would say the Magic Tour but thats because I remember the feeling of excitement of being there,it was just great.
Though I would have to say the 1977 shows, where they had the huge crown rising from the stage, that would have been the most spectacular.

The Magic Tour, with the opening chords of One Vision, is just great, though We Will Rock You is my second choice.

I actually like the BoRhap heavy section played on the beginning with the operatic intro tape (with Kenny Everett) and than using BoRhap as a part of the medley...

Second place- definitely We Will Rock You (fast)

Last- "One Vision"... Cool track but not very good opener...

Procession without a doubt!!!! One Vision was probably worst it lacked power.

Procession is such a regal intro - I saw this on a rare concert and it worked so well.
I think it mightn't have worked as well in later concerts - but was ideal for the time.

I also like the way the One Vision intro built up to such a climax for the start of the Magic Tour concerts.
