While tour didn't started yet it is always nice to speculate and drive others and yourself mad about possible ways how it could be.

When will they start to play. I mean, it says there that bands start at 17:30. I guess preparation and play for each is 30/45/60 minutes (choose your favourite) so I would assume two bands playing 35 to max 45 mins. Then voice of Freddie will be heard and whole audience will repeat whatever he will shout (I guess Live Aid stuff or mixed as on Tribute). And the gig itself. I guess 8PM. We know that is has to finish until 10:15PM. What do you think?

On concert itself, do you think the staging will be something special (light effects and so on)? Things did advance since last Queen tour - or is this going to be simple stage (not only Hyde Park but also whole tour). Brian did say there are no photos from their preparations as there are few surprises. Hopefully they are related to the stage and not him having short hair :))

At the end, how many people are expected to attend to Hyde Park? Do you believe in future there will be DVD of it perhaps? Any other question you've been wondering around? :)

With all these years and new bands I forgot the entire thrill around Queen I used to have. Now, it is back :)

Still amazed at how early the show begins. Admitedly Hyde Park has a curfew of around 10.30-10.45, so that would encourage an earlier start.

Special Guests are advertised on the Press Adverts- not seen on the other ones for the UK shows, so perhaps there will be a few support bands.

Hyde Park can hold up to 120000 these days, I'd imagine 80,000 fans will be the maximum.

As for filming, it is possible.

After the interview today by Brian and Paul we know that filming will be done, but decision on DVD will be taken later.

What I expect most of the concert is to hear Queen in different way than it was before - I don't wish to hear songs as they were done on studio albums, but rather with different approach. Remember TYMD played by Brian... it was rather long, with first part like a blues story with no guitar as on original. I really loved that one. With Paul on board that could easily happen now. Same goes for his songs. From the interview I believe hint was that something like that would be to expect. I wonder how different Hype Park might be from the rest of the tour in that respect, but can't wait for whole thing to start anyway.
