Dead right! 95 mins is taking the piss! Will they have time for the Brighton Rock solo? Might have time to plug and unplug Brian's guitar!!! Riot control security take note.........just kidding!

OMFG!
I want to go to the Ahoy concert sooo badly, but if it's 55 euri's for only 95 minutes of music I'll stay home and just listen to the live cd when it comes out.

WHAT THE F*CK ARE THEY THINKING??
95 minutes man ... that's just crazy! I can't believe that's right..

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.
