Brian has mentioned that there'll be surprises on this tour. I think he's referring to some of the songs and not the line-up...that's more or less sorted except for the bass player. Here's my choice of "surprises" More likely to be lesser known tracks IMHO.

Sleeping On The Sidewalk
I'm Here (Rodgers song from Muddy Waters' Blues -Brian plays guitar on this track and has the same feel as Sidewalk - blusey number)
'39 (Brian Vocal) - give Paul a rest
Feel Like Makin' Love (as last part of acoustic set)
Invincible Hope - (Roger vocal latest Queen related song)
Rock'n'Roll (Roger vocal)
Fire & Water (Paul Rodgers. Thread on QOL has said that Brian & Roger did a soundcheck with this one before a WWRY after show party)
Tenement Funster/I'm In Love With My Car
Sail Away Sweet Sister
Lucille
Hammer To Fall (Slow then Fast)

What do you guys think?

Sleeping On The Sidewalk or Hammer To Fall slow/fast are hardly a surprise, they have been played plenty of times in the past years :-)

'39 would be a nice surprise for me.

Feel Like Makin' Love they'll play definitely.
Rock'n'roll would be graet!
I'm almost expecting at least one Hendrix number...
AND- how about We Will Rock You done like in Rock'n'rll Hall Of Fame?

You know, I'd LOVE to hear Roger sing "Drowse"...Don't even know if he ever sang this live, even back in the early days, but it'd be great.

'39 has been played in the past as well and Hammer To Fall slow/fast at Amsterdam 2002 and Brian's solo tours. Reckon most people are expecting Hammer To Fall to be like Wembley'86 and not in two parts.....so it may come as a surprise to some people. Can't recall Sleeping On The Sidewalk being played many times.....only at WWRY parties. Must have been at pre '79 Queen gigs.

Right on.....how about Hendrix's Purple Haze/Hey Joe,Foxy Lady or Stone Me. We Will Rock You was brilliant in Rock'n'Roll Hall Of Fame and will definitely be played as an encore with WATC and Allright Now.....not really a surprise but a certainty!!

No chance in hell. Will only sing 3 - 4 songs max. Radio Ga Ga, Ride The Wild Wind, Days Of Our Lives, Under Pressure or Break Free.

As for '39, I meant the full version which hasn't been done for a VERY VERY long time. As for Sleeping On The Sidewalk, it was played very often at the WWRY afterparties so I assume it will be in the setlist for sure. Maybe the same counts for Don't Stop Me Now.

"AND- how about We Will Rock You done like in Rock'n'rll Hall Of Fame?"

If you mean the Songwriter's Hall Of Fame (2003), then it'd be great. The R'n'r' Hall Of Fame version (2001) was almost normal.

Funny! All songs mentioned in all the posts where actually on my 'wish list' at the Paul Rodgers website! ;-)))

But please, may I add what I hope for. The one song that immediately entered my mind as THE ultimate song for Paul Rodgers to sing:

My Melancholy Blues!!!

And let's not forget The Prophet's Song!
(Could actually work, I think)

Prophets Song would be brilliant - especially if they get the sound right for the choral part.

Rodgers did a great version of Hendrix's I Don't Live Today, with Slash and a couple other guitarists. Love ot hear them do that.

Something maybe to remind us of Freddie would be very nice. And also
Another One Bites The Dust, to remind us of Deaky.
And Dreamer's Ball! I love Dreamer's Ball! If they would play it, TALK about surprise!!!
And, As someone said before, Drowse, and WWRY fast and then normal (with the crowd stomping and clapping as well) and umm.. Definetly NOT God Save The Queen, 'cuz it was Queen's ``Registered TradeMark´´ if you know aht I mean!
