Have you ever seen Brian May and Roger Taylor play live after 1991?
Let's hear it from you, guys and gals, only if your answer is YES. (most of the Queenzoners CAN read, I'm sure.)
No need to come up with stories why you haven't or why you don't want to.
After all those posts from people who dislike Brian and Roger to go on tour - as Queen - or dislike their choice of Paul Rodgers, I now want to read when you've seen Brian and Roger play together and what you thought of that.

What? ok, I'll start.

I've seen Brian, John and Roger at the Freddie Mercury Tribute in London.
I've seen Brian and Roger play live in Amsterdam 2002,
and I saw Brian on tour in The Netherlands,
and I've seen him and Roger perform during the WWRY musical and at the WWRY Cologne afterparty.

It was fun. It was great to hear them playing Queen songs live again, after all those years when I had bought the albums. I think it's great they still enjoy playing together!

I have seen them twice:-

1) Aids benefit concert - including John.

2) A few songs together (only Roger and Brian) at Ocean in London to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Freddies death.

My answer is YES, so that's why I reply.

Twice:
1) MTV-Russia Awards
2) The Moscow musical premiere show afterparty
Both at October of 2004
3) Brian's concert in Moscow at 1998

I saw Brian live in Cologne way back in 1998... Geez, I am getting old.

However, I still rate this as the best concert I attended so far. I did not know what to expect and I was so happy that he also played some Queen tracks. Although he had throat problems, I very much enjoyed his vocals and I had a terrific time. Judst a shame he did not play No One But you.
One thing I can clearly remember. When me and my buddy were waiting outside the concert hall in a throng of some hundred people, the sound engineers checked the sound system inside with No-One But You in full blast. Naturally, you could hear it and the whole crowd spontanuously joined the lyrics. That WAS nice indeed.

I don't know if this counts, but I watched Amsterdam and Queen's Jubilee live through the internet.

Brian, 1998, Hamburg. It was nice, although I never liked the "Brian May Band" that much. That's why - if I could choose - I'd like to see them tour without Jamie Moses, Eric Singer, and any ladies in the background, and without Spike Edney.

I saw Brian in Offenbach, Germany Oct 21st,1998
-Brian and Roger in the Oceans Club, London, Nov 24th 2001 which was a memorable night for me and my best birthday ever:)
-Brian and Roger in Modena May 27th, 2003 - another memorable experience
- Roger in Clapham Grand Dec. 6th, 2004 - the closest I ever was to a stage when a Queen member played (and I did not manage to make pictures with my new photo camera!)
- Brian and Roger WWRY after show party Cologne, Dec 12th 2004 (I saw you walk by, Rien but was not sure it's you!)- which was incredible with only so few people watching after many party guests already left when the cast performed because it was so loud !!

Excellent topic!!

Ah..the memeories are loding back to me now...
I have been fortunate to see both of them perform a few times times.

In order:

Brian ( supporting G n'R's ) March 17th 1993 Boston MA

Brian (first solo US Tour with BMB) October 7 1992 New Haven CT

Brian (BMB solo) October 8th Providence RI

Brian and Roger (WWRY Vegas Premiere Aftershow Party) September 8 2004 Las Vegas NV

All of these shows were INCREDIBLE...but the most amazing was the Vegas Aftershow gig. WOW...it was AWESOME beyond BELIEF!! Roger was fantastic and Brian was in fine form. They more then convinced me that this upcoming tour will be a SMASH. They can STILL ROCK HARD!

Get ready...these shows will be MINDBLOWING if the Vegas "preview" was anything to go by...they ROCKED!!

I saw the Brian May Band at the Danforth in Toronto in 1992(93?) and while supporting GNR in March of 93. Both times were great though the Danforth show was the better of the two as he was the headliner. The small theatre was awesome!!

"I did see Roger Live at the Cyberbarn on the Internet, but the real issue of this post is: "you should have been there". :-)"

I WOULD have been in Amsterdam if there had been a chance but as it was only some Dutch fans were notified to avoid a chaos in Amsterdam. Instead I listened to the web broadcast together with some other fans (who skipped work like me!) in the Queenzone chat room. Oddly enough, almost the same group met a year later in Modena.

Brian: '93 in Düsseldorf - F****** good rock-show, all that you want: smoke, pyros, drum solos, all the beloved rock-clichés... :-)

I saw the Queens Day gig,
Although it wasn't perfect, it was great to be there and see the guys playing!

But this Tour will be, without a doubt, the highlight of the post-Freddie Queen! I'm really looking forward to it!
