For everyone who is against, or has been against the tour and Paul Rodgers singing, consider EJT's words:

"I cannot stress how much this concert has meant to me, being a young un (25) I never thought it possible I would get to see Queen on tour (my first real exposure to their music was watching the Freddie tribute concert on TV)."

I think it's fantastic that someone will have memories to match my recollection of my first show in '76. I'll see them if they come to Canada, it won't be same for me, but God bless them for giving thousands of people the thrill of their lifetimes.


You know, good times are now.

Well said my fellow BHM. I can still remember the day in 1973 when Queen came on as support for Mott The Hoople. All of us "Young Dudes" stood mouths open and saw a very young Queen give it some (and more).

It's brilliant that there are some youngsters joining the ranks of those who for many years have lived on Brians opening of TYMD or nearly wrenched their necks when Bo Rap goes crazy.

Mine is a simple message. Remember those moments, take it from me you won't see many groups who can rock like Queen

BTW Cardiff tomorrow .... It's like bloody Christmas Eve ... I ain't gonna sleep tonight ..

Thanks my friend, I suppose at 49 I can look back at a complete era. Paul Rogers and Free were one of my major musical influences before Queen, so I am going back to my roots big time. I never ever thought I would be in the crowd singing "Alright Now" again, but with Brian on guitar and Roger on drums .... Well.... words fail me.... But they are certainly going to take me back to my early days.

I'll do a report when I get home tomorrow ...
