According to wegotit did the setlist not change from the Basil concert :-(. Brian threw in a bit of the danubewaltz during his solo, but that was all :(

Basel = Vienna = Munich. Absolutely no change at all.

How many people are going to more that one concert in the same week? Twenty, fifty, one hundred? That is the 1% of the total audience, so why bother to change a great setlist just for me and a few other crazy people? Queen has never move setlists much during tours, so why now?

Of course the majority is happy about the setlist. That doesn't mean it's a right thing to do. A majority was undoubtedly happy about Platinum Collection or Greatest Hits III as well and I wouldn't say it was the right thing to release. I simply feel Queen are too lazy and they can't be bothered with rehearsing more than the 'greatest hits'.

I absolutely agree with Scully. The majority probably finds it ok I guess. The material is way too predictable in my opinion. Way too commercial. We fans have used MUCH money on Queen and I think this tour should be more aimed at us who have kept Queen in the limelight. I would have wanted these songs, and they should be included sooner or later :

- Now I'm here
- Who wants to live forever
- Another one bites the dust
- Keep yourself alive
- Stone cold crazy
- innuendo
- white man

Dont know why they arent there.... they are SO QUEEN!!!

It seems as if they have chosen the most easy material to play...

Actually I don't think they should play a different setlist every night because of the die-hard FANS. They should play it because of the VAST CATALOGUE that they have. I don't believe for a second that it's a problem for them to rehearse a short medley, even if it had to be instrumental (because Paul Rodgers doesn't still remember the lyrics). If Spike played a few seconds of Millionaire Waltz in Vienna on piano, the Brian played I Go Crazy in the guitar solo... or something like that. Just small pieces that please the fans.
