Hi, guys! There are a lot of rumours, that Queen (Brian & Roger) would tour some day. Nobody can tell exactly if it is true or not, and nobody really knows who can join them for the tour (John Deacon, Spike Edney, Neil Muray, Mike Moran, Chris Thompson or somebody else). But let's imagine what songs they can perform live nowadays without Freddie.
After thinking for a while about Brian's and Roger's vocal abilities and remembering different Queen performances till and after Freddie's death, I came to conclusion, that the set list can really be as follows:

Procession (taped intro)
Bohemian Rhapsody - operatic part(taped intro with clip images on large screens)
Bohemian Rhapsody - hard rock part
Tie Your Mother Down
I Want It All
Medley: In The Laps Of The Gods/Killer Queen/The March Of The Black Queen/I'm In Love With My Car
Too Much Love Will Kill You
Under Pressure
Another One Bites The Dust
Hammer To Fall
A Kind Of Magic
Guitar Solo: Brighton Rock/Chinese Torture/Bijou
Acoustic set: Say It's Not True/Is This The World We Created/Love Of My Life/'39
Headlong
I Want To Break Free
Radio Ga Ga
Days Of Our Lives
1st encore: The Invincible Hope/46664 - The Call/The Show Must Go On/No-One But You
2nd encore: We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions
God Save The Queen

Agree or disagree.

No way. I don't know what mine would be, but things like Procession wouldnt do to start the show nowadays.

Interesting setlist. I'm not sure what the likelihood of the medley or opening with Procession would be, but otherwise, it's good. Might be a little long, though.

Probably like most I dreamed of Queen touring with the Miracle and Innuendo albums before the rumours about Freddie were confirmed as reality!

A Good Opening would have been "The Show Must Go On" if they had done a medley perhaps it would have been "Was It All Worth It" / "Headlong" / "Slightly Mad" and "Breakthru". I would have loved to have seen them do Innuendo live, I reckon Freddie would have really rocked it out!

If they were to tour now, I personnally would like to see them bring a decent singer on board and get John involved again. Maybe Gary Cherone - whatever happened to him? Tour as a proper band now that would be good!

I hope they would've dropped some of the hits like AOBTD and IWTBF and played some older ones again, like Flick of the Wrist or Liar.

Yeah, I agree. But my life would be that much closer to complete if I watched Brian and Roger perform Heaven For Everyone in front of me. MIH is definitely my favourite Queen album.

Well, I googled it and I found about a Gary Cherone in a band called "Van Halen".

The band members are:

-Alex Van Halen
-David Lee Roth
-Eddie Van Halen
-Gary Cherone
-Mike Anthony
-Sammy Hagar


But I'm not sure if it's the Gary Cherone from Extreme but I think it's very probably, because "Gary Cherone" isn't a very common name, and people who were famous one time usually try to be famous again when their fame ends...
yeah, Gary Cherone from Extreme recorded an album with Van Halen like 4 years ago and it's probably the worst VH album ever. He is not anymore in the band and Sammy Hagar is back and they are touring the US.

I like to hear songs like Save Me and Killer Queen. But nobody on this earth can sing this songs like Freddie did. Radio Gaga will be a lot easier to perform.


I got to try al little more,

because I'm an asshole but I'm learning.

Don't think Robert Smith would want to do Innuendo as he's openly said he doesn't like Queen!

antiden - why on earth would you want Brian to repeat The Call? Generally there isn't any song I don't like in the Queen/solo catalogue, but The Call is a big exception. Can't quite understand why they thought it was worth recording (I like the riff, but the "lyrics" ruined it completely).

Tops Roger's Nazis even!

As much as i love Queen, Brian and Roger (Especially John) will NEVER TOUR. They keep talking about it and we hear all thses rumours but no action is ever taken. There both not getting any younger either so i don't know what they are waiting for. Its like they have a fear of touring together maybe they can't do it without Freddie,i think they can, i don't know only they can answer that Question?????

The Call's lyrics were written for the 46664 campaign and only for that. It's just to get the message across. It's not supposed to be the best song ever. I think it's good. Brian looked like a real frontman when he did it live.

Mmmm, have to agree to disagree. Thought he looked stupid at 46664.

And I KNOW it was written especially for it (hard not to with all the 4-66-6-4 chanting!!!). Still think it was pants though, and shouldn't be performed ever again (and this is about as negative as I get when speaking about Queen!!)

Not a bad set list -- personally I'd move Bohemian Rhapsody into the middle/end where it's always been and have a guest vocalist do Freddie's songs, but otherwise...

Right Gary Cherone was in Van Halen for a couple of years so I found out today and he has a new band now! I was at the Tribute and just thought he rocked on Hammer To Fall as well as the Extreme Medley! Yes I've got Robert Plant's Innuendo but as already noted Freddie would have been the difference!

I don't think Queen will ever do a major tour but they could maybe do the festival circuit. John - who knows, he might be getting bored at home now and the kids are probably all grown up now! I think if he knew there was a tide of public opinion wishing he would get involved in a Queen live venture he might go for it? Who knows?

Around 75/76 Queen opened with Bohemian Rhapsody in a similar form to that already suggested. A good Call if you ask me!
