Have you never thought that maybe Freddie didn't sing somebody to love on magic tour because he fell in love with jim hutton, so he stopped playin' it live. I think it's a good reason (look at the lyrics), but maybe they didn't play it anymore because freddie wanted to dance around and not play piano so much, or maybe because it was too difficult to reach the notes... I don't know

No, I never did up until now... yeah, you may be right!

But then... why did they stop playing "Body Language" in 1984... long before Fred came to know and love Jim?

Oh my God... so many questions... and so few answers! :-)))

Maybe because people was not satisfied with hot space (under pressure apart)

From what I heard he was tired of playing Piano songs, He didnt really like/love the sound of Piano live(guess rock concerts), and liked the "Move around freely" concept.

yeah, Freddie wanted to strut around the stage and dance to the songs which is much better than just sitting and playing the piano.

To be quite honest I think piano songs are much better for rock concerts than IWTB, FWBF and other 80s garbage. I don't know what Freddie was playing at- Wembley needed Somebody To Love, Death On Two legs and if he wanted to do a recent one- he could have done It's A Hard Life. If he was already suffering from AIDS then you'd think that doing a few more piano songs would be a good idea- it would have given him a rest- instead what do we get, a flipping medley of 50s songs- unaccpetable.

I suspect the reason was that Fred's voice couldn't handle those songs anymore- Killer Queen was awful on The Works tour.

Rant over.

has a point. spike playing them and fred strutting around could have added a whole new lease of life to some of the piano based songs, even if it is a break from tradition.

you know what i hate seeing? people who just want to see stuff from 70's played at nearly every tour!

"they should of played death on two legs, etc on the works tour, and on the magic tour they should of played this this this and this from the 70's"

are you guys stuck in one perioud or something?

Queen made new music, music they wanted to play live, not make it and shove it on an album then play ANATO all over again, gods sakes, if you made new albums with lots of different songs you would want to play them live! not have people sayin "nah they should stick to this album cos i like it better than the new stuff"

GET REAL! move out of the 70's and into the new eras! i love queen in the 80s better than 70s but i still like to hear stuff form the 70s too.

like this recent tour i loved hearin 39, im in love with my car etc, i agree more should of been played like If you cant beat em join em, but not so much its mainyl old stuff.

like one thread i seen in Q+PR 2005 forum

They should play.....
...

ALL 70's Stuff just cos they like it better than hte 80s! get real man!



That is total rubbish. I don't mind a mixture- in fact I like AKOM and Radio ga Ga live. For that reason I liked the Works tour because it ahd a mixture of old and new but the Magic tour was mainly 80s pop hits which was very irritating-not showcasing their talent. A piano medley would have balanced it, pleasing older fans instea dof alienating them. As for Spike playing the piano then no as well- Freddie could play instruemnts- the stadium factor should not change that- in fact I think him not strutting about makes the songs stand out for themselves.

I do not advocate a wholly 70s setlist as you so crudley imply- what I hate are safe play the eighties hits setlists. I am not proposing a seven song piano medley that we saw on the Live Killers- just three or for songs; DOTL, STL, PTG and MOTBQ. That'all Wembley needed.

Maybe because Body Language is shit.


This can't end well.

Well said Asterix, I couldnt agree with you furthermore, "Death On Two Legs" is a great rocker that would have gone down thunderously well at Wembley!!!

I think he didn't sing it anymore cause he couldn't hit the notes
