How do you think each gig will start?

I expect a start with one vision or tie your mother down or is there any free/bad company songs that could fit?

Also i think a 2 hr set list will happen as i can see a lot of change arounds such as a mid gig acoustic set then guitar solo etc.

What do you think?

P.S. Any update on the support?

I think It's a beautiful day (Tape Intro) Into Tie your mother down would be a good way to start

I think there should be a ruddy big cheer when Brian and Roger appear but dead silence when that singer bloke appears.

It should be as still as the day Sir Archie walked into a miner's bar with his 'I love Maggie' t-shirt. I swear the darts stopped in mid flight.

I think the place will errupt and that all the band members will arrive on stage together.

IMO TYMD will be one of the first songs as it gets the crowd up and going right from the start.

why would One Vision only be a part of the magic tour? .. TYMD is played millions of time, so why not doing One Vision a second time?

Personally I hope it will be O.V., because it's Queen best openings track

They're going to start the show with a strange video montage of Freddie/Queen interviews mixed in with a tribal beat in the background. Then BAMMM smoke...lights....the lights go on and they start the show with .....Jailhouse Rock!

What do you think...? Hey, it could happen!


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

Roadies: "Yeah! Great Idea!"

Freddie: "And it will fly into a great big mouth with a moustache!"

They have to open with a Queen song IMO...

I think they should open with a rocker....

Personally I think Tie Your Mother Down and One Vision works well.... Fast version of WWRY maybe, but not very likely I guess... The One Vision intro is maybe a bit dated concerning the synth sound... (maybe they will create a new one?) still I think One Vision is the best opener..... I get goosepumps every time when I hear it... it is so pumping and energic and it results in explosion of screaming guitars, heavy drums and raging vocals... ;)

Not without a little bit doubt about Paul's voice, it could be:

Princes of the Universe: "Here we are, born to be kings...etc...here we belong..."
Could be a smasher.

The Show Must Go On... Building the excitement when the lights go on... but perhaps a song more suitable further on in the tracklist.

Innuendo... is the superb opener of the WWRY musical because it builds up the tension in a great way.

Tear it Up. Long musical intro before the singing starts. Very rocking to start a concert I think. "Are you ready, hey are you ready..."

Let me Entertain you. Perhaps a bit TOO obvious.

And as mentioned... Tie Your Mother Down. One of Brian's favorites. (and mine!)

But (if it weren't openers before) to have something "new" I think Tear it Up and Princes Of The Universe would be great!

How about starting off with "I Want It All". A great song that was never played live on a Queen tour and probably would have been the opener if there was a "Miracle" tour.

I agree about Princes Of The Universe or an extended intro of Show Must Go On, these are great ideas.

Princes of the Universe? Cmon...no way. Not One Vision either...I think they definately wont play those types of songs...they'll probably stick more with good old fashioned rock like TYMD, Hammer to Fall, Stone Cold Crazy,...

considering they didnt even consider princes, gimmie the prize, or dont lose your head in 1986 with freddie i cant see it now (all of them would have been fantasic live back then) to do them know would be a bit of a pisstake as why they werent done who knows, maybe bri wanted em & freddie didnt (vocal damgage etc)

Exactly.... a few "Freddie" chants, wouldn't go amiss, either.....
