4 hours until I see Queen!

I am rather looking forward to it as you can imagine.

...the show just finished with "God save the Queen"!
Pre-produced (taped) version as usual... ;-)

No they already played "Hijack My Head", an out-take from Highlander score :) (sorry jeroen for borrowing the joke :) )
Brian instead of love Of My Life played some ukulele, very weird version of Good Company. Roger indeed sang Hijack... and the band after WATC came out for another encore and played "Silver Salomon", saying it will be a bonus on the DVD, as this show was also recorded!
They started with Eminem tape, followed by Reaching Out and instead of Tie Youre Mother Down they played fast We Will Rock You. After playing two verses of AOBTD they played the snippet of Dragon Attack, finishing with Now i'm Here reprise. And the last thing- remember the snippet from White Man? They played bloody thing, instead of Fat Botomed Girls...

I actually received an mp3 of them doing 'Hijack My Heart', and Brian's little 'Good Company' ukelele busk.

Really good stuff, I must say.

They absolutely played Freebird again, and circulated bottles of Jack Daniels and Wild Turkey amongst the audience in the arena after the stewards handed out plastic cups of Red Bull and Stoli while we waited in line. The show totally rocked. Paul rode in on a Harley for "Reaching Out," and Brian played harpsichord for the entire gig. Tie Yer Mother = pure carnage on the harpsichord. The crowd went wild. Roger played "I'm In Love With My Car" on the sitar accompanied by Ravi Shankar, who came out of retirement for the gig. At the end, Ravi doused the sitar with Ronson lighter fluid and set the stage on fire. Literally. It's hot, it's mean!

Jamie, Danny, and Spike finally had enough and kicked the you-know-what out of Paul. A great time was had by all. ;-)

Now will someone please post the real review? Thanks!


I saved Spike's life in 'Nam.

I'll not list all the songs, but they played:

Another One Bites the Dust
A Kind of Magic
A FULL version of '39
Under Pressure
The Show Must Go On

I cant remember how long they played for, but it was AGES. My mate rekoned it was 2 and a half hours...

When you say full version of '39 do you mean the two verse rather than one verse version he does sometimes.. or the actual full song?

Did anyone notice what they were rehearsing during the soundcheck? I don't expect any surprizes though ;)

Fuck I dunno, it seemed like the full version to me. Though I was caught up in the atmosphere of it all so I could be wrong of course!
