Has anyone seen Roger Live?
When?
Where?
Which songs did he play?
Was it good?

Also, why has Roger never released a live album or video/DVD? I for one would like to hear/see one of those type of things I mentioned in my previous sentence.


This can't end well.

Ditto, except for Guildford. I've seen him in lots of places.

Roger's performed live many times, especially in the 1990's. Sometimes he performed with Brian, and sometimes with special guests.
And sometimes, by himself.

The setlist would usually include songs from Roger's latest album to date. For example, when touring in 1995 he would most likely play songs like "Foreign Sand" and "Nazis 1994", both which are featured on his 1994 album, Happiness?
He would also play Queen songs that he wrote, such as These Are The Days Of Our Lives, I'm In Love With My Car, or Radio Ga Ga.

And of course, we all remember his 1998 live webcast performance from his home in Surrey, England(i believe that's where it was , called "Live at The Cyberbarn". It got him in the Guinness Book of World Records!

So yeah, Roger live was nice. Nothing amazing, but he had some good stuff.
