What song do you think Queen should open the concert with? I personally would like "WWRY" fast version.

I'm thinking Innuendo. We have to consider the material that came out after 1986 as well.

i think they should go out with a bang in the beggining, they probably will anyways. But yeah, WWRY and then straight to TYMD, itll have the whole place in a riot.

Breakthru. a fab song to be the first! with the "A New Life is Come" intro... other good options is "A beautiful day Reprise" with record Freddie intro and guys jumping to the stage on the jam part!

hehe...let's not forget the outside possibility of "now i'm here"!


Freddie: "Yes, we'll have a great big cock fly over the crowd!"

Roadies: "Yeah! Great Idea!"

All great suggestions guys - would look forward to any of them.

WWRY fast I guess would be mine.

Yeah, WWRY fast is my choice as well. Damn, they'll have to practise really hard if they want to make it sound as good as in the 70s.

I've seen Queen 5 times and they always started with a taped intro - One Vision/ Magic Tour, Machines/ Works Tour and Thunder/Lightning/ Crazy Tour.

My choice

Taped Intro
TYMD (Brian & Paul)









We all of us deeply apologise for this god forsaken shit heap of a building...but we will make it rock.

One minute, folks:

Don't you think the good idea would be starting with a song of "no tour" years (1987-1991)?

You know, something never played before on stage as band would be one of the important reasons of this tour.

And, about "no tour years" songs, I prefer I WANT IT ALL. Innuendo is very, very great (epic!!!) but I think is not good for starting because its beggining is mid-slow (in crescendo).

Agreed Raul.


Innuendo is too ponderous and labouring for an opener. You'll be waiting for a quick number after 20 seconds.

Hopefully not that shit heap Tear it Up either.

WWRY (fast) or TYMD are most likely IMO...
But INNUENDO could also work (remember musical?)

Innuendo would work. Just others would work better.

I don't think the musical compares to the opening of a Queen concert though.

Did like the opening of the musical to be fair
