The "bird" as you call her, who's singing WATC is not just some "chick" from the musical, but just happens to be the best Dutch singer of Holland! Please check your info first before judging someone you don't even know!
But I do agree that Amsterdam was't their best gig, but i was proud they came to our little country! :D

if you've complains about HTF and not about NOBY or ABTD (THAT chick really can't sing .. Trijntje can) .. then .. well .. you didn't listen to it really good :P

I personally think that HTF was oké, the extended opening solo of TYMD was big fun, Radio was fun too, the interaction between Rog and Bri and the public was great, and AOBTD, UP and NOBY sucked.. :)

i stand by my opinion, but! i take back the reference to the bird from the musical, its bird from hollond who is a good singer and famous in holland! thats why i have not heard of her, but i did think she was a good singer, was that the same chick who sang show must go on? b/c that was the best singer of the day!

Well, you can read here http://trijntje.nl/welkom/index.htm
(scroll to the bottom for english biography) all about Trijntje.
She has been very succesful with her brother in the band Total Touch.

And about the Amsterdam gig? Call it what you want but Queen was the top act of the day (for me that is). During Brian's hard work on the premiere of the WWRY musical he cleverly used this moment of attention to promote the WWRY musical. And for the Dutch fans it was really great to have Queen playing live in Amsterdam. A thing you could only dream about until then.

And NOBY was very special, despite what you may think. Correct me if I'm wrong but this was the first time Brian and Roger sang this live.

It wasn`t the first time. Imo the gig was horrible and a lack of respect with a country that is very loyal to those two lads. But that`s just my opinion, whoever experienced multiple orgasm with them even if Brian`s voice broke all levels of weakness, who am I to judge?


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Do you mean multiple orgasms WITH Brian and Roger or by just seeing them perform? You should be a bit more specific.

Oh, and if they did sang NOBY earlier as you say, you also should say WHEN they did that.

I meant by seeing them perform of course. They sang it at Fred`s death 10-year anniversary in London. They did it quite good that time

Yep, Amsterdam was without any doubt the worst show they've ever played! Not one single song feels right. (I never watch or listen to this show, also because whenever I do, my cat freaks out and starts molesting my curtains!)

It always makes me laugh when after the show Brian says to the Dutch TV woman " Did we ROCK ", er... NO!
