So, Brian is confirmed for the next Mandela concert. What role do you think he'll play in the show? Host? Maybe a guest with other musicians? A Queen or solo set (a long shot!) perhaps?

Also, I'm surprised I haven't seen anything about THIS little snippet on the boards:

"Today, I am 'resting', which actually means spending much of the day with Mike Dixon writing a new arrangement of a new song for the Japanese We Will Rock You show, opening soon in Tokyo - as usual this show will reflect the country it is playing in - if ever you see WWRY in a foreign country you'll notice there are many different slants - every one is different...."

Though I very much doubt it, I don't suppose anyone has any further information on this 'new' song? Of course, It IS very possible that I misunderstood the quote. Anyway, Share your thoughts fellow Zoners and Zonerettes!

I have a feeling Brian meant "new song" in the sense that they're going to add a new song that wasn't previously included in any other musical - which, of course, might mean 'Teo Torriate'? I'm not sure if this was included in the musical already, but, as it is Japan, that inclusion would only seem to make sense.

Yeah, I think he meant new arrangment for the song which is absent in other WWRY show versions.

But everything is possible!

That's what I was thinking as well, But I've never seen the musical and really have no clue what's in it in the first place. :P

Bloody Japan get everything. First they get the I Was Born to Love You video, then they get brand spanking new Teo Torriate, then my brother moved over there to work for 2 years. Bloody Japan.
