To all "regular" visitors of Queen+PR-shows:

The intro-tape before the show had at some point always the same songs near to the show-start. Beginning with a weird We Will Rock You-version followed by Feel Like Makin' Love, then that crappy Guns N' Roses-song and then that song with lots of na-na-na naaaa na-na-na-na-na. Then came a very good song. Very rock, very uptempo and completely instrumental. This song was the last song in Basel and Vienna, before It's A Beautiful Day-remix was played. Can anybody help?

In Budapest due to 30 minutes delay, much more songs were played. Right before the beginning of It's A Beautiful Day only a few seconds of a very famous Rock-song very played with those heavy guitar-riffs. I've been looking for this song for ages, but still don't know what it is. Can anyone remember? Again: The very last song, which was played for maybe 5 seconds and which was quickly faded out to start with Beautiful Day.

Thanks for help and

Cheers

Wasn't the instrumental song an Abba song? Or do you mean a different one?

They always start the show late, I wonder why (for example in Prague all people were on their seats at 8 and the stage was ready since 7.30 or so but they still started at 8.30). And they always play the same songs before the show, it's getting really annoying - because it's longer and longer.

Vienna - 3 songs
Munich - 4 songs
Prague - 6 songs (I think)
Leipzig - 6 songs
Frankfurt - 6 songs (I think)
Budapest - 7.5 songs

No, I think this was this na-na-na naaaa na-na-na-na song I mentioned. But right after that came that rock-song, only instrumental, heavy guitars.

Martin, can you remember the last seconds before A Beautiful Day started? THAT song I'm looking for desperately.

In Basel A Beautiful Day startet at 7.57. Exactly at 8.00 pm lights went off and Eminem started. They couldn't be more in time.

Cheers!

I wasn't there, so I don't know but they always play music somehow related to their career such as All The Young Dudes, Since You've Been Gone etc. I think in Brixton they played Smoke On The Water, so maybe that was the famous riff you heard.
Edit: I take this back, you said instrumental - it was a Mike Oldfield track, I think from Ommadawn, Ill find it for you.


I do not want any google ads here.

The instrumental song is an ABBA song: Arrival.
It was covered by Mike Oldfield in an album called QE2 in 1980 (I think). In fact, the first time I listened to the original ABBA version was in the Olympiahalle in Munich(!) and being a fan of the Mike version, as soon as I arrived home I got the ABBA one from iTunes. I hope they'll keep it 'till Belfast because it is a great tune.

Ops! I forgot, as I remember after Arrival, a Guns 'n' Roses song was played: Sweet Child of Mine, and then Beautiful Day ...

Thank you for your help so far, but the 2 songs I'm looking for are still unknown.

So far we have:

We Will Rock You (weird version)
Feel Like Makin' Love (Bad Company)
Sweet Child O' Mine (Guns N' Roses)
Arrival (ABBA)

but now: AFTER Arrival came that fast instrumental rock song - a lot of people recognized it. All these songs were always played round 8 o'clock

AND: Due to the delay in Budapest, at approx. 8.25 they played maybe 5 sec. of another well known heavy rock song.

These two songs I wanna know.

Thanks and
Cheers!

na-na-na naaaaa na-na-na-na is now definitively identified as "Arrival" by ABBA.

sorry William, you're no help ;)

Cheers!

Being a Hungarian i take it as an offense. Watch your language, please!

People were waiting for the show to start, and they were drinking their beer outside, weren't they?

I am not Hungarian, but i was at the concert and they started late because of problems with Brian´s guitar, as u all could have seen.

That one was Led Zeppelin's Kashmir from their Physical Graffiti album.

I can't remember the other song you've mentioned though :(

BINGO!! - You made my day, Burak Sepici. That song was played for a few seconds just before "It's A Beautiful Day" started. And: I'm really embarrassed about not knowing this number.
Thanks man for your help!

-> Norman: That Boston-song I recognized, but it's not the number I'm asking for. I still would like to know the song, which came right after "Arrival" by ABBA. Once again: Very rock, concise guitar-riffs, very uptempo and without singing. Many people cheered when it was played, so the song could belong to "basic-knowledge" as well.

Thank you all for your kind help!

Cheers!

Ladies and gentleman!

Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum: Now I know the two songs I was looking for.

1. "Kashmir" by Led Zeppelin (thanks to Burak Sepici)
2. "Bareback" by The Darkness. This song was played after "Arrival" by ABBA. Thanks to Kickforce, who mentioned this in another thread.

Here a link to listen to "Bareback" for those interested in.
