THAT SATURDAY MORNING WE WERE QUEUEING UP TO ENTER THE QUEEN FEST MEXICO 2005 . THE DOORS OPENED AND WE WERE LEAD INTO THE AUDITORIUM OF THE VENUE.AFTER A LITTLE WHILE IT WAS PACKED.THERE WERE ABOUT 150 TO 200 QUEEN FANS .THE EVENT STARTED WITH A SUMMARY OF THE HISTORY OF THE QUEEN FAN CLUB IN MEXICO..THE HEAD OF THE QUEEN FAN CLUB MEXICO RECOUNTED TO US THE DAYS WHEN QUEEN PLAYED LIVE IN PUEBLA IN 1981 AND POINTED AT A FEW FANS WHO HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO SEE THEM LIVE THEN. AFTERWARDS, HE ASKED THE NEWCOMMERS TO A QUEEN FEST TO RAISE THEIR HANDS, MUCH TO OUR SURPRISE 2/3RDS OF THE ATTENDANTS RAISED THEIR HANDS! IT IS WONDERFUL FOR US WHO HAVE LIKED QUEEN FOR SUCH A LONG TIME , TO WITNESS THE POWER OF THEIR MUSIC UP TO NOW.IT IS REALLY IMPRESSIVE. THE HEAD OF THE QUEEN FAN CLUB MEXICO TOLD US ABOUT HOW HE MET THE VERY BRIAN MAY AFTER THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL CONCERT .IT WAS NICE TO SEE THE QUEEN FANS REACTION, LOTS OF JOYFUL SCREAMS AND SHOUTS FOR WHAT HIS EXPERIENECED WAS, EVERYBODY TOOK OF THEIR CAMERAS AND TOOKS PICS OF THE ITEM BRIAN SIGNED FOR HIM.FLASHES HERE, FLASHES, THERE, FLASHES EVERYWHERE.THEIR FACES AND BODY LANGUAGE REFLECTED THE HAPPINESS IN THEIR HEART AS THEY HEARD HIS ANECDOTE IN AMAZEMENT. THEN THE RETURN OF THE CHAMPIONS WAS PLAYED ON THE BIG SCREEN.SOME FANS WERE STANDING AT THE DOOR OF THE AUDITORIUM SINCE THERE WERE NO FREE PLACES LEFT, AND THE EMOTION AT LISTENING EACH AND EVERY SONG CAME OUT OF THE PLACE, WERE EVEN THOSE PEOPLE STANDING UP SANG ALONG.SOME OF US WERE THERE AND A FAN CAME OUT ,AND TOLD US ABOUT HIS EXPERIENCE AT THAT VERY CONCERT, HE WAS THERE THE MOMENT IT WAS FILMED FOR THE DVD!! HE POINTED OUT IT WAS SUCH AN EXPERIENCE.HE AND HIS WIFE WERE AT WEMBLEY TOO.AFTER THE POWERFUL AND YET MOVING VIDEO, TOO ESQUINCA ,THE RADIO MAN FROM MIX FM , ASKED THE ATTENDANTS TO WRITE THEIR NAMES ON A BIT OF PAPER,AFTER A FEW MINUTES HE EXPLAINED THEY WOULD TAKE PART IN A KARAOKE CONTEST. MUCH TO OUR SURPRISE THIS YEAR , PEOPLE WERE QUITE, NO, MORE THAN WIILING TO PARTICIPATE. EVERY FAN ONSTAGE SANG WITH ALL THEIR HEART AND SOUL, EVEN A LITTLE 8 OR 9 YEAR-OLD GIRL WHO HAS BEEN AT SEVERAL QUEEN FESTS BEFORE (EVEN WHEN SHE WAS A BABY DISGUISED AS FREDDIE MERCURY , WITH HER LITTLE MOUSTACHE (MAKE UP) FOR THE OCCASION, WHEN SHE OBVIOUSLY CAUGHT THE EYE OF THE ATTENDANTS) .PEOPLE WERE DELIGHTED AND WANTED TO KEEP ON SINGING ALONG. SOME PRIZES AND PRESENTS WERE GIVEN AWAY BY THE ORGANIZERS: EMI MUSIC AND MIX FM ,(THE RADIO STATION) FOR THE WINNERS OF THE LOGO AND COMIC CONTESTS AND FOR THE ATTENDANTS IN GENERAL (I STRONGLY BELIEVE AND THIS IS MY OWN PERSONAL OPINION) THIS IS A BONUS, FOR WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT TO ME IS LISTENING TO QUEEN MUSIC AND BEING WITH PEOPLE WHO ALSO LIKE SUCH A MAGNIFICENT GROUP) .THEN, THE LATEST VIDEO OF THE ANATO 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION WAS SHOWN, EVERYBODY SANG ALONG AGAIN, THERE WERE HEAD BANGERS TOO, I WISH YOU ALL COULD SEE THOSE FACES, PEOPLE WERE REALLY ENJOYING THOSE MOMENTS AND THE EVENT AS WELL.THE END CAME BUT NOT THE EAGER AND LONGING OF THOSE FANS LOOKING FORWARD TO ATTENDING ANOTHER SIMILAR EVENT .AGAIN, THEY WANTED TO KEEP ON SINGING ALONG THE KARAOKE, UNFORTUNATELY, IT WAS NOT POSSIBLE. THIS EVENT WAS QUITE DIFFERENT FROM WHAT WE ARE USED TO SEEING AND DOING YEAR BY YEAR.YET THE MAIN INGREDIENT :LOVE FOR QUEEN MUSIC WAS THERE WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT . THE QUEEN FEST 2005 IN MEXICO, LOTS OF QUEEN MUSIC, LOTS OF LOVE AND ADMIRATION FOR THEM ALL AND OUR DEAR FREDDIE, A WELCOME TO PAUL RODGERS , LOTS OF EMOTION AND FONDNESS OF THEIR SUPERB ART AND SKILLS, A DAY TO REMEMBER FOR MANY QUEEN FANS.I PERSONALLY THANK THE ORGANIZERS OF THE EVENT AS WELL AS THE QUEEN FAN CLUB MEXICO FOR LETTING ME BE THERE.
MEXICAN FANS AND PEOPLE ARE REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO HAVING QUEEN+PAUL RODGERS LIVE IN MEXICO.WE HOPE OUR DREAM COMES TRUE.

BEST WISHES,

Zey

P.S. I ALSO HOPE THAT THE FAN WHO CAME TO THE FEST IN MEXICO CITY ALL THE WAY FROM DURANGO (A 1

REVIEW IN SPANISH.RESEÑA EN ESPAÑOL:
ERAN APROXIMADAMENTE LAS 11 DE LA MAÑANA ESTE SABADO 26 DE NOVIEMBRE ,CUANDO UNA FILA DE ESPECTANTES FANS DE QUEEN ESPERABAMOS PRESTOS A ENTRAR AL EVENTO. FINALMENTE SE ABREN LAS PUERTAS Y FUIMOS CONDUCIDOS AL AUDITORIO DEL LUGAR, PASAMOS POR LA VITRINA DONDE SE EXHIBIAN LOS TRABAJOS PARTICIPANTES EN LOS CONCURSOS DE LOGO Y COMIC.YA EN EL AUDITORIO , EL EVENTO INICIA CON UN BREVE RECUENTO DE LA HISTORIA DEL QUEEN FAN CLUB MEXICO, SE INDICA LA PRESENCIA DE AQUELLOS QUE ASISTIERON AL CONCIERTO DE PUEBLA, DE ASISTENTES A OTROS QUEEN FEST Y DE AQUELLOS QUIENES POR PRIMERA VEZ ASISTIAN A ESTE EVENTO.CUAL NO SERIA NUESTRA SORPRESA CUANDO UN POCO MAS DE LAS DOS TERCERAS PARTES DEL AUDITORIO LEVANTARON LA MANO!!!REALMENTE ES MARAVILLOSO EL CONSTATAR (AL MENOS A FANS DE LA VIEJA OLA) COMO EL PODER Y LA MAGIA DE LA MUSICA DE QUEEN PREVALECEN HASTA NUESTROS DIAS.ENTONCES EL ENCARGADO DE LLEVAR LOS ASUNTOS DEL QUEEN FAN CLUB MEXICO NOS RELATA SU ENCUENTRO CON EL MISMISIMO BRIAN MAY DESPUES DEL CONCIERTO EN EL HOLLYWOOD BOWL, Y COMO ESTE LE DIO SU AUTOGRAFO, AL MOSTRAR EL ARTICULO EN CUESTION, FUE IMPRESIONANTE VER FLASHES POR TODAS PARTES, LA GENTE SE LEVANTABA DE SUS LUGARES Y GRITABAN DE FELICIDAD AL VERLO, TOMARON VARIAS FOTOGRAFIAS COMO UN RECUERDO DEL MOMENTO.FUE MARAVILLOSO VER COMO SU ROSTRO Y LENGUAJE CORPORAL REFLEJABAN LA FELICIDAD QUE EL OIR ESTO LES PRODUCIA. A CONTINUACION SE PROYECTO EL DVD "EL REGRESO DE LOS CAMPEONES" (THE RETURN OF THE CHAMPIONS" EN LA GRAN PANTALLA. ALGUNOS FANS LO VEIA DE PIE EN LA ENTRADA DEL LUGAR, YA QUE LOS LUGARES ESTABAN OCUPADOS.LA EMOCION AL ESCUCHARA CADA UNO DE LOS TEMAS INUNDABA EL LUGAR.ALGUNOS DE NOSOTROS NOS ENCONTRABAMOS EN LA ENTRADA DEL AUDITORIO, Y UNO DE LOS FANS SALE PARA CONTAR SU EXPERIENCIA EN EL CONCIERTO QUE SE ESTABA PROYECTANDO, EL ESTUVO ALLI EL DIA EN QUE FUE GRABADO PARA EL DVD!!! INDICO QUE QUE FUE UNA EXPERIENCIA EXTRAORDINARIA , QUE EL Y SU ESPOSA TAMBIEN ESTUVIERON EN WEMBLEY . UNA VEZ CONCLUIDO EL CONMOVEDOR Y ENERGETICO VIDEO , EL LOCUTOR DE MIX FM TOÑO ESQUINCA LES PIDIO A LOS ASITENTES ESCRIBIERAN SU NOMBRE EN UN PAPELITO PARA DECIRLES DESPUES QUE SERIAN PARA TOMAR PARTE EN EL CONCURSO DE KARAOKE.PARA NUESTRA SORPRESA ESTE AÑO LA GENTE SE MOSTRO MAS QUE DISPUESTA A PARTICIPAR , CADA FAN QUE SUBIO A CANTAR, LO HIZO CON EL ALMA Y EL CORAZON.AUN UNA PEQUEÑITA DE UNOS 8 O 9 AÑOS QUE AL PARECER HA ASISTIDO YA A VARIOS QUEEN FESTS (DESDE BEBE, DISFRAZADA DE FREDDIE MERCURY, CON SU PEQUEÑO BIGOTITO -MAQUILLADO-, Y QUE POR CIERTO, ENTONCES LLAMARA MUCHO LA ATENCION ).LA GENTE ESTABA FASCINADA Y QUERIA SEGUIR CANTANDO .LOS ORGANIZADORES (EMI MUSIC Y MIX FM) LES DIERON ALGUNOS PREMIOS A LOS GANADORES DE LOS CONCURSOS DE LOGO, COMIC Y A LOS ASISITENTES EN GENERAL (CREO FIRMEMENTE , Y ESTA ES UNA OPINION MUY PERSONAL- QUE ESTO ES ALGO EXTRA, YA QUE LO VERDADERAMENTE IMPORTANTE PARA MI ES ESCUCHAR MUSICA DE QUEEN Y CONVIVIR CON GENET A LA QUE TAMBIEN LE GUSTE ESTE GRUPO). ENSEGUIDA SE PROYECTO EL VIDEO RECIENTE DE LA EDICION DE 30 ANIVERSARIO DE ANATO, LA GENTE COREABA LOS TEMAS UNA Y OTRA VEZ, HABIAN HEAD BANGERS TAMBIEN , DESEARIA QUE HUBIESEN VISTO ESOS ROSTROS , LA GENTE DISFRUTANDO GENUINAMENTE ESOS INSTANTES COMO EL EVENTO EN GENERAL. EL FIN LLEGO, MAS NO EL DESEO FERVIENTE DE LOS FANS, YA EN ESPERA A LA REALIZACION DE EL PROXIMO EVENTO, ELLOS QUERIAN SEGUIR CANTANDO, MAS NO FUE POSIBLE. ESTE EVENTO FUE BASTANTE DIFERENTE A LO QUE ESTAMOS ACOSTUMBRADOS A VER Y A HACER AÑO CON AÑO EN UN QUEEN FEST. NO OBSTANTE, EL INGREDIENTE PRINCIPAL: EL AMOR POR LA MUSICA DE QUEEN ESTUVO PRESENTE. EL QUEEN FEST 2005 EN MEXICO, MUCHA MUSICA, MUCHISIMO AMOR Y ADMIRACION POR ELLOS Y POR NUESTRO QUERIDO FREDDIE MERCURY, UNA BIENVENIDA A PAUL RODGERS. MUCHA EMOCION Y GUSTO POR SU SOBERBIO ARTE Y DESTREZA, UN DIA MEMORABLE PARA MUCHOS FANS DE QUEEN.EN LO PERSONAL LES AGRADEZCO A LOS ORGANI
