QUEEN + PAUL RODGERS BEGIN REHEARSALS

Before they hit the road in what will be a rare tour Queen + Paul Rodgers are currently
rehearsing in the UK .After the first day of rehearsals Paul Rodgers had this to say,

"We had a fantastic first day. Everybody arrived fresh and ready to rock. I have to say it was great to crank up the jet engines again."

When asked for clues about the set list and how it will differ from their Live CD/DVD "Return of the Champions" Rodgers replied,

"Today we tried various songs in order to change up and fine tune the new set for the US & Canadian dates and yes their will be some surprises."

After seeing the new DVD and hearing the live cd this is a must see concert.
Q+PR kick off their US & Canadian 23 date tour at Miami's American Airlines Arena
Friday, March 3.

I would like to see White Queen Played, even if Brian Solos over the whole thing, that would be awesome and maybe the full version of Brighton Rock. I also think Was It All Worth It would be nice to whip out, but the deffenantly should not shorten the set lists.

I think they will play different bad company/free songs instead of the ones they did in Europa. Bad Company was pretty big in the US for a while.

Let's hope they will play some different queen material as well allthough I don't expect it to happen...but you never know..

By the way: are the tickets selling good?

Surprises? Killer Queen, Keep Yourself Alive, You're my Best Friend & Under Pressure will be added (Somebody to Love will be a BIG surprise).

More Paul Rodgers songs: Rock & Roll Fantasy, Bad Company, etc.

Do NOT expect White Queen, It's Late, Was it all Worth it or Delilah. They were never hits or popular in the US.

We all fans would like to listen this non-singles tracks, but the reality is that they have to play the songs that are more popular; they also might be thinking on releasing a new Queen + PR concert DVD and it HAS to include well known songs so it can sell well.

I wish they can play Nevermore, Lily of the Valey, Flick of the Wrist, Innuendo, It's a Hard Life, The Marh of the Black Queen but...

We have to wake up.

oh, It's Late was not popular in US ?! What were we thinking! By the way, The first two Queen shows I attended the band included White Queen in the set.
*********************************************
Check this out. Absolutley TRUE story. Queen @ Providence CC, '78 Jazz Tour. My buddie and I had seats "Front-Row floor" Deacy side, toward center. All thru the show some guy (also in front)kept chanting out "Black Queen...Black Queen! Every chance he had...Black Queen ! Between every song - Black Queen !
Later, toward the end of the show as Freddie heads to his grand piano for what will be BoRap - again "Black Queen, Black Queen!!!". I Swear to God - Freddie starts banging out chords to, you guessed it, BQ !
It was so f'n cool. He then segueyed into BoRap, but that 5-10 seconds of BQ piano made that guy's night and every other fan privy to what had just transpired. It was a great moment.

Oh, I forgot to mention I also slapped 5 with Freddie Mercury that same night! ...i think it was during Brighton Rock, no maybe it was during ITS LATE ! Word.

Great News!!!

We will probably here different Bad Company songs-
Bad Company, Movin on, Rock Steady, shooting star, the list goes on. Maybe they will put WIshing Well back in---it was consistently good.

Different Queen material: perhaps Now I'm here, I really want it's late or long away among countless others--but I am realistic.

Not too long before we find out. yeh!!

Bad Company went over well at the NJ show, one of Paul's best songs, IMO...

Shooting Star would be another they could easily do well, and would be a crowd fave, as well as Rock and Roll Fantasy, and the others they have already done.

Regarding Queens material, UP will be added for sure, perhaps they drop some of the mid/late 80's material in exchange for the late 70's stuff. For instance, IWTBF can be cut, and no-one would miss it.

IMO, Somebody to Love should be mothballed.

Because they played It's late in the 1978 Jazz tour doesn't mean they will player in 2006. They played Friends will be friends in '86 and we're not expecting to hear it again.

I remember an interview with Paul(or Brian) where he commented on how some of the more "Freddie" stuff, the stuff that only Freddie could pull off correctly probably wouldnt be attempted. So I dont expect Killer Queen or Somebody to Love... or really anything that involved mystical lyrics(most of the first 2 albums).
As far as Its Late and stuff like that... What really WAS popular in the US? I hope they dont let our ignorance of Queen in its "heyday" influence the set too much, or else we can expect "The Game" album front to back...

Surprises?

How about a brand new song penned by Brian, Roger & Paul? That would be a BIG surprise.

It would also state that that this new incarnation of Queen isn't just a nostalgia band living in the past, but instead, they are a band making new music of their own and looking in the future.

It's not impossible, is it?

You don't bloody know what was popular in the U.S. I'm sure It's Late was popular.

I was actually glad they skipped IWTBF last October. FBG flowed much better out of TYMD. I'd like to see Keep Yourself Alive, It's Late and perhaps Sleeping on the Sidewalk... We've got what - a week until we find out?!?!?! Almost more excitement than I can stand at this point !!!

I'll be at the Gwinnett show with my kids on the 7th and have been bombarding them with Queen the past few weeks.

They've settled on 'Living on my own' as their favorite, so it'd be great to hear that. 'Its Late' has always been a favorite of mine although I don't expect to hear it.

things like innuendo, white queen, its late, was it all worth it, father to son, in the lap of the gods (revisted) th prophets song, long away, drowse, fight from the inside, mustapha, rock it, sail away sweet sister, ride the wild wing, bijou, mother love and such should be played as the arena fills to keep the crowd occupied.

i wish theyed get of of the hits, expose new stuff to people, that could boost record sales and maybe send a single to a high position. This may be the make it or break it tour for new people (not die hard fans) its bad enough there is not enough promotion. I live in pittsburgh. At the bus stops when areosmith was coming to play they had tour poster posted. Its not right. Im about to post shit on public area.
