According to "text/SMS express" (and if correct) taken from QOL:
21:26 No AOBTD yet tonight. PR's autocue is missing. Sound is spot on. No guitar problems
22:25 "The Show Must Go On" followed "I Want It All" (PR on vocals) Smaller light show at Cardiff. Another One Bites The Dust performed during encore

However, until several people confirms it I would not take this for granted.

Got an e-mail from Danny that said,

"We're doing Dust now, and it ROCKS!"

I'm assuming that might serve as confirmation.

Haven't seen anyone post the full Cardiff setlist only any of the threads yet, so here it is.

No new songs but some changes in the running order and Pauls voice must be getting better as we had "Feel Like Making Love" back in the setlist. He also took vocal duties on again during Hammer to Fall, I Want it All etc.

A lot more of Paul at this concert compared to Birmingham on Friday.

A kind Of magic was a bit dodgy again but they were on top form for everything else. AOBTD improved a little since Birmingham.

I think Paul's voice was better so they added Feel Like Making Love and re-introduced The Show Must Go On, but into the main set . Then replaced Under Pressure with AOBTD in the Encore. So basically 2 more songs over Newcastle. 1 more than Birmingham. It was Excellent, the more the better as far as I am concerned.

It was such a fantastic show last night!! I think brian snapped string on his 12 string acoustic near to the end of love of my life but that didn't matter!
Im so glad they put the show must go on back in the set list because it was amazing!!! A kind of magic was pretty good i thought! And pauls voice was in great form, i didnt notice it breaking once!!
over all a great show!


I'm not a river or a giant bird, that soars to the sea, an if i'm never tied to anything i'll never be free!

Wow!!...what a day out!! Not going to bore you with this but quite simply a brilliant show IMHO and the best set list to date!!

After 2 pints of Guiness in O'Neill's and The Prince Of Wales pub I then went for chips in Caroline Street and saw a bloddy streaker running down the street with a copper in pursuit. Bloody hilarious with the girls screming as well. Then had a quick drink in Dewi's pub and joined the queue. One of the longest queue's I'd ever seen at the CIA but got in eventually and stood stage left on Brian's side. Some guy on the balcony was singing "We Will Rock You" and the crowd joined in before the show started...a good start to the pre show build up. Only thing I have to say is I think they should have opened the doors later than 06.50. Had to stand 90 mins before the show started. Would have preferred the doors open at 07.30. Not so long to wait and all that!

8.30 and the intro started and in the darkness Paul appeared on the catwalk singing Reachin'Out and then all hell brook loose with Tie Your Mother Down!

The atmosphere was electric and when Roger, Danny and Jamie began Say It's Not True, Roger reacted to a banner in the crowd by saying: "That's disgusting!"

Paul's overall performance was excellent and the band were really relaxed, tight and enjoying themselves. The only weak song IMO was AKOM...only Paul's vocal let it down. LOML was really great with Brian almost in tears after the rendition. Brain said that the Welsh are the best singers in the world and it was hard to seperate Welshness and singing. Really enjoyed AOBTD..heavier version with Paul using the autocue. Allright Now was brilliant and WATC was excellent with Paul standing on the upper catwalk.

A really enjoyable gig with many fans taking photos with digital camera's and mobile phones. The guy next to me was recording the show so security was crap. They were only checking for bottles as at the end there were hundreds of plastic bottles and glasses on the floor.

Really glad I went now and the ticket price was well worth it.

Long live Queen is what I say. Haven't freaked out so much since Wembley'86!!!


We all of us deeply apologise for this god forsaken shit heap of a building...but we will make it rock.

Intro started 20.30 and they went off 22.40.

2 Hrs 10 mins with Track 13 from MIH at the end. I was so excited and overawed that my timings could be slightly out!! A two hour + show anyway.

Brilliant gig. I'm still on a high writing this!!

Great, GREAT gig. The audience was really up for it, it was even too hot at moments. Paul in GREAT shape, band spot on, perfect setlist...
What else? Cardiff at night is a mad place... So mad, taht I paid extra 35 pounds to get to Heathrow 3 hours earlier at night than I was supposed to... And I wasn't even going to Heathrow in the first place, just wanted to be away from there... What tyhe hell weas it? Rugby final? Just a match? World Cup or something? I don't think I've seen so many drunk ppl in one place in my life...
Back to the gig... This girl with a banner (Roger- bang me like you bang your drums) was standing just behind me. The fuckin lady was screaming entire night, like girls used to when seeing Beatles. I really hope she's still have a sore throat. Embarassing thing was- Brian was AVPOIDING looking this way. She REALLY pissed me off. Joined the queue about 4:30 (YEAH!), met few nice ppl in there, had a great place, great view- the gig was awesome, second best after Manchester IMO.
