That is to say, make up a set list for the concert played in the major city closest to you on either the "Miracle on Earth" or "Going Slightly Mad" tours.

This was kinda triggered by the post of "The Imaginary Performance - Queen Live in Uruguay 1983" topic, and I think it'd be fun.

I'll lead off with the first Canadian stop on the "Miracle on Earth" tour. Freddie, Brian, Roger and John were all excited about coming back to North America, especially with the sales of The Miracle north of the 49th.

So, without further ado, the set list from "Miracle in Toronto", live from the Maple Leaf Gardens, July 15, 1989.

1. I Want It All
2. Tie Your Mother Down
3. Long Away
4. Breakthru
5. One Vision
6. A Kind Of Magic
7. Another One Bites The Dust
8. The Invisible Man
9. I Go Crazy
10. I Want To Break Free
11. Keep Yourself Alive
12. Guitar Solo
13. Now I'm Here
*Intermission, band sort of lazes around, chats amongst themselves*
14. Love Of My Live
15. The Miracle
16. Fat Bottomed Girls
17. Action This Day
18. Seven Seas Of Rhye
19. Hammer to Fall
20. Bohemian Rhapsody
21. Scandal
22. Crazy Little Thing Called Love
23. Radio Ga Ga
24. We Will Rock You
25. Kashoggi's Ship
26. We Are The Champions
27. God Save The Queen/O Canada

The intensity of the crowd was high when the Gardens lit up with powerful blue and white lights, almost simulating the sky above. The "Miracle Face" was displayed on a large video scren behind the stage, and out of nowhere, it spoke "I Want It All, I Want It All, I Want It All, and I Want It NOW!" Cue the massive pyrotechnics, Queen has arrived! The band pulled out all the stops for their opening number, Freddie being as lively as ever. Frederator was in a Toronto Maple Leafs tee and blue jeans, Brian was wearing his Magic Tour get-up, John was in leather jacket and shades, and Rog seemed to be wearing...well, not much. The band swung right into another high-paced number, Tie Your Mother Down, to get the place jumping. They quickly took it down a notch afterwards. Brian said something about "reaching to our bag of tricks and making some miracles tonight." And just like that, Long Away starts, completely surprising the better part of the audience! Freddie and Brian sang vocals back-and-forth, until John decided to do his own thing, and shunt the tune into Breakthru, which was the popular single at the time. One Vision and A Kind of Magic were next, with Freddie trotting out in his old Magic Tour jacket, "just for old time's sake." Another One Bites the Dust followed, with the band warning that "things are gonna get a little steamy in here." AOBtD led into the Invisible Man, with John actually singing his part, getting a good rise out of the crowd. Afterwards, another "miracle" from the band: they play I Go Crazy! No one really even knew that this song would be played live! EVER! But it received a decent response from the crowd. IWTBF followed it, which led into Keep Yourself Alive (another nifty one from the archives), after which Brian decided to do his guitar solo. It seemed the band just threw together their setlist at the last moment, which is why there wasn't any Impromptu beforehand. Now I'm Here closed out the 1st half of the concert, leaving the 20,000 or so in attendance nicely buzzed.

Freddie: Now, if you'll excuse us, we need to take a bit of a break. We are, after all, four aging queens. We're old. We need rest. *trots off*
(and btw, Rog was wearing Canada-flag boxers...)

The intermission was a bit of a weird one. The band came back after a while with a change of clothes, but without instruments. They just sorta lay around on stage, chatting about how the concert's going, and plotting out their second half, cracking the occasional joke, stuff like that. (I honestly hope this part makes the DVD...)

Eventually, Brian finds his guitar, and Love of

Just realized: The SkyDome (now the Rogers Centre) would've JUST opened that year, so Queen would've likely played there. 55,000 people swaying in time...not quite Wembley, but on the west side of the Atlantic, that's pretty impressive.

And I'm surprised at the amount of ideas so far for the two (or three) tours that could've been.

I'm guessing englishyob's set list would've been for the "Heaven For Everyone" tour in 1995.

Very cool.
Actually, you didn't need to make a story for it, but it helps.
Wonder if we can "bootleg" one of these gigs eventually...

Not very realistic setlist (except the last one)

I highly doubt live performances of Innuendo and Was it all worth it
