I wonder about the darkness...?

As for Queen tribute bands....uh no.


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!"

Have you seen them live? I have and hope I never have to suffer them again! I think that the best choice out there would be Thunder, but this isn't going to happen. Def Leppard would be good, and is a possibillity. I suspect that it will be The Wire Daisys for reasons stated on other threads

No support band please. If it's too much for the guys, have a short interval whilst they rearrange the stage, then come back to do an acoustic set at the front of the stage ( like on the Crazy Tour ) before a storming finish with all the old the crowd pleasers.

Don't think it will be The Darkness....they're a headlining band now!
Someone who's going to Cardiff has received his ticket....no mention of support or + special guests which means they don't know yet or even better there isn't one!!. I would much prefer to have a longer set of 2Hrs 30 mins + than have a support act "killing" time before the real action starts.

as for thunder that question has been asked on their website & i cant see it as Danny Bowes Thunder singer has had Paul Rogers comparions before for me Danny Bowes is the better singer & thunder have always had free/bad company comparisons

& when thunder played under bon jovi at wembley in 1995 , a certain mr jovi took offence because thunder outplayed them

im not getting into thunder v queen thing so dont start people.. it could happen again ie stealing the show

and to add i cant see any support acts with both camps having such a vast back catalogue when i saw macca 2 years ago the same thing his point of view which can be viewed as macca being big headed he didnt any silences & moving of equipment before he went on ... so he did the strangey artsy thing which worked quite well & then wallop he started with "hello goobye"

as for the darkness, they're were a good night out 2 years ago when no one knew them i saw them in night club in middlesbrough you get drunk & just enjoy the acdc/thin lizzy/queen trademarks but when i went to leeds last year (just to see the wildhearts) how they managed to drag a 40 minute less album into 90 mins was beyond me & the point was lost itll interesting to see where the dreaded album 2nd album goes

As for Queen tribute bands....uh no.


HEAR THIS..... no tribute bands within 5000 kilometres of any of the gigs. I really feel strongly about this one!! I don't want to hear impersonators turning out Queen songs when you can see the real thing later on! The whole idea is a joke!. Prefer to hear an original lesser known band with their own ideas and songs having a chance to play on a bigger stage rather than some poser dressed as Freddie singing ******* Radio Ga Ga! Tribute bands don't have the need to play original material and will just copy their idols. I'm not against tribute bands but it's not right for a rock'n'roll show somehow.

Either no support or someone who's half decent please. I've seen plenty of appalling support bands in my time.

Come on Guys lets get real ....

Do you honestly think Bri would allow a tribute band as support ???? I don't think so ...

The best support band I saw was in 1973 their setlist was:
Procession
Father To Son
Son And Daughter
Ogre Battle
Hangman
Keep Yourself Alive
Liar
Jailhouse Rock
Shake Rattle And Roll
Stupid Cupid
Be Bop A Lula
Jailhouse Rock
Big Spender Bama Lama Bama Loo

Shit !!! that was ** years ago
