Is Queen Openin' their shows with an eminem song?

if they are doing this... why?

i read in somewhere that they used the Abbey Road album to open the shows in Mexico in 1980 is that true?

Have A NiCE Day..

Because Eminem asked Brian to use samples from WWRY. So it's Brian's way of saying Thanks

That would be a bit cool! I would have never thought that EMIMEN would open up for Queen,but thats cool! I used to be a big fan back in 4th grade.

Eminem is a great musician. The best rapper I ever seen, great lyrics. Brilliant.

I've come to respect Eminem when he came out with The Eminem Show. Good stuff. And 8 Mile is such a good movie!

Where exactly is the sample of WWRY anyway? Is there just a slight stomp, stomp, clap in the song? I certainly can't hear it.

Don't be confused here- they use one track in the info.

I think it was a great opener, if you listen to the lyrics, it makes more sense.

lol at the NJ concert me and my friend thought they tricked us and it was really going to be an Eminem concert and we all screamed NOOO really loud. but i like the lose urself as the opening song, it makes me think about how brian and everyone must feel before coming on stage. gets me pumped in other words
and its the first time i didnt mind listening to it, but its nice to see how the old, great artists are aware of todays less talented artists

based on my musical experience i can make a coment of emminem's music ... and i must say that his none to sing with queen- even to sing near queen- he just suck! basing on his music and also on rap music a can say that rap doesnt have any musical composition they are just words with out any musical meaning nor any musical reall composition ... im a musician and and with all my experience with musical teory y can say this: emminem is a looser- i dont wanna insuld anybody (any emminem's fan) but i must say what must be said

You have to be there to understand!

'Lose Yourself' really gets the crowd going..

Yeah I agree, it was a great opener at Hyde Park last year.

Actually the WWRY beat has nothing to do with "Lose Yourself". Eminem samples it in his song "Till I Collapse" off the "Eminem Show" album

I could agrre with the words that fit in the opening of a show "losing yourself".

But when it played it in Florence me and the audience disappointed the "surprise".
