Good constructive thread. It's nice to discuss Paul Rodgers'part in all this instead of getting into a frenzy about tickets, codes, venues, bitching, disrespectful comments etc. Many people IMHO who are.......
just plain ignorant/never heard of Paul Rodgers/only interested in Queen songs don't care much for Paul Rodgers....are missing the whole point of this tour.
This is 1/2 QUEEN + PAUL RODGERS not Queen with the original line-up!! There is going to be Paul Rodgers material on this tour so ACCEPT IT however much it may piss Queen fans off!! Also, it will appeal to a more possibly mature audience but many younger fans will come and have a ball!
Freddie idolised Paul Rodgers - he is known as the "Voice" and has inspired many singers since the early 70's. As you know, he'll never replace Freddie, has not joined Queen and is as such a guest vocalist performing his songs as well as Queen's!! Anyone who is expecting a Queen only set should stay at home and get out their CD's. I've heard that there could be a 1/3 Rodgers
2/3 Queen set list. That narrows the Queen songs down to about 15 - 20 maximum if they play a two hour set (they usually play around 110 minutes) but who the hell knows!!
I wanted to get this off my chest. It's been buggin' me.......oh the relief!!
We can only keep guessing and speculating.....that's what makes it exciting!!!!!
We all of us deeply apologise for this god forsaken shit heap of a building...but we will make it rock.
