Why is this a surprise? Most Queen shows were only 95-100 minutes minus encore waits.
Think 95 minutes is being taken as the length of the set INCLUDING encores.................... but do agree that 95/100 is around right for minus encores waits. Seen 5 Queen shows.......never played more than 110 minutes with 2 encores. Even Freddie Mercury tribute was under 2 hours with guests and vocalist changes.
Take note.............full set lenghts.
THE CROSS Gig 1988 80 - 90 mins
QUEEN THE WORKS 105 mins
FREDDIE MERCURY TRIBUTE SET 1992 - Around 110 mins
LIVE AT WEMBLEY 1986 - Around 110 mins
BRIAN MAY ANOTHER WORLD - 1998 135 mins
ROGER TAYLOR ELECTRIC FIRE 1999 Around 105 minutes
I wonder if history will repeat itself......no support act gives more credence to a longer set -possibly.
We all of us deeply apologise for this god forsaken shit heap of a building...but we will make it rock.
