My mini-tour (Basel-Vienna-Munich-Budapest) is over. Setlist as known + 3 songs I've never heard live before:

- Tavaszi Szel Vizet Araszt (1 verse)
- Long Away (!!!) (1 verse)
- Feel Like Makin' Love

- It was Roger's best night so far. Very powerful performance.
- Extended version of his drum-solo!
- Best song of the evening: I'm In Love With My Car with a very hot finale (Brian/Roger)

- Brian had massive troubles with his guitar.

- Paul seems to have recovered. Sang Hammer To Fall (from 2nd verse on) and some parts of other songs as it was at the beginning of the tour. - Really good voice and performance.

- Brian doesn't make a mistake during the instrumental part of Love Of My Life, as I supposed formerly. It seems to be intended. How could I jump to conclusions!

- Brian sang the second verse of Love Of My Life correct by watching the monitor in front of him very carefully.

- Brian played little teasers of White Man and Headlong before Fat Bottomed Girls

- Paul didn't appear through the curtain, he came upstairs and wore a jacket in peach-colour (whoever is interested in)

- I'm not sure but I think I saw Martin (Mr. Scully) and Thomas (Zeidler) standing together

- Extra bows of Jamie, Spike and Danny during God Save The Queen (good idea!)

- Hungarian audience is fond of jumping as much as possible, often without cognizable reason. Quite annoying habit.

- Best song of my mini-tour: I Want It All
- Worst song: A Kind Of Magic

- Best show: Vienna (without being patriotic!)

That's all I think. For all of you who haven't seen them yet: Have fun!

Thanks and cheers!

Thanks for this. Too bad we did not see each other in Munich. Any chance you come to Cologne in July?

Thanks for the review! I was in Vienna too and liked it very much! It´s a shame I could not go to Budapest (had to stay at home and study...) since I would realy like to see them one more time!

Anyway, how much did it cost to travel around like this and buying the tickets? :)

1. Sorry for opening a new thread with my review
2. -> Barbara: Yes, what a pity. Cologne? Maybe. But I'm not really keen on big Open Airs, as you have to fight hard to get a good view. Moreover I prefer indoor-events ... let's see
3. -> pirx: tickets (Vienna-ticket was for free!)+ trips: 392 Euro (= ca. 94000 Tolar)

Cheers!

Yes, we were there together, in first & second row just in front of the B-stage.

Very annoying, I agree - but it wasn't Hungarian audience, it was the Czech guy standing in front of me :-) He was jumping and waving so much that he even managed to hit me into my eye once :-)

I ABSOLUTELY agree.

> Best show: Vienna (without being patriotic!)

:-) Vienna was a good one but Prague and Budapest were IMO better.

I haven't been to Prague, so I can't reassess it. I mean, IMO the atmosphere was best in Vienna, musically Budapest was the best show I saw. I have to admit you're right, Martin.

Did anyone mention Roger's funny condom-comments btw?

Cheers!

Vienna wasn't anything special for me. I think the atmosphere was better in Munich. But I don't remember the concerts anyway so I may be wrong :)

They are getting better from a show to show. I agree - Prague was the best ( infortunatelly, my only 1 concert) :) Cheers!
Does anybody know -are they going to relise the concert CD or only DVD. The CD wanted!


I have just returned from Prague. It was the best concert I have ever heard and saw. It is just not enough for me. I want it all I want it now (again...) Before the cocrt I was ful of doubts about th

As Vienna was the only concert where I had a seating-ticket (press-ticket!) I could see the whole thing from above. The big advantage is that you can see the complete effects of the light-show. You cannot see this standing close to the stage. Moreover the big audience-roars are more effective to experience from a distance than being part of the crowd. So maybe I'm wrong, but from the distance you get a very different impression of the whole spectacle - therefore I liked Vienna most. And: Munich was certainly NOT better than Vienna. Never. They are Germans, c'mon! ;)

Cheers!

The Germans are handclapping all the time, for no particular reason - and that can actually be good :-)

I heard a couple of Austrians were allowed out of their country to see the show .... ;)

Yes, we Austrians are a curious tribe. I was keen on travelling back to stone-age where you can find instead of big modern indoor-halls huge tents. And as far as I know I was the only Austrian who got permission to travel to our infoccial 10th federal state ... ;-)

Cheers!

Oh no, the other Austrians were backstage pedalling to get the power generator going - we may have no electricity but we have our Austrian brothers to help out :)

Roger comments about Jamie and Danny ( I think, can't remember) wearing condoms were funny :)

Power generator? - Be serious! It was the only Queen-show illuminated by candle-light. ;-)

The candle lights were in Vienna - and the band had to bring their own candles. Brian looked a bit green from all the Palatschinken he had to eat. And he was threatened with Salzburger Nockerln into playing the Blue Danube, hmmm

And please don't think I don't like Austrians, Fenderek, in fact I love them. Whenever I say or do something stupid in other countries I say I am from Austria and I am forgiven immediately :)

1. To be correct: Roger is the Palatschinken-eater as everyone can ascertain these days!
2. If Brian was threatened with Salzburger Nockerln, he would have played bits of Mozart's oevre, wouldn't he?
3. > Whenever I say or do something stupid in other countries I say I am from Austria and I am forgiven immediately :)

Germans tend permanently to say ("tschüss") or do (watch out for the coasts of Mallorca!) something stupid. They HAVE to say they're Austrian to escape, otherwise Germany would be a qite sparsely populated country, as lynch law is worldwide permitted exclusively to punish Germans.

But to be honest, I love Germans, especially Bavarians. They have the best humor in the world beside the Brits of course. And my sister ist married near Mannheim, so ... we're family.
Somehow. ;-)

Cheers!
