Brianmay.com published the Official Setlist for tonight's gig in Cleveland. Same songs as the last couple of shows but they changed the order. Now Dragon Attack precedes AOBTD and Under Pressure was moved more near the end. Maybe they thought the audience had reacted positively to Under Pressure. This means that they probably will keep it in the following setlists, Cool! :)

Here's the setlist...

Had a great time tonight!! No major flubs..;-) Enjoyed seeing William, Haystacks, and Richard..(if you still look on here!) Jeroen..were you there?

Brian was funny.. When he went to the end of the catwalk for LOML, he let out this huge scream! ;-D I'd say the place was around 80% full. The only real obvious gaps were in the corners of the arena from what I could tell at my vantage point. The crowd was a heck of a lot better than Pittsburgh, although I did see quite a few people sitting in the stands. Good times, good times..;-D

I don't think that there is anyway that would have got your camcorder in there. Security was pretty tight.

Just got home, show was AMAZING, everything I expected and more. Crowd was pretty good, like said before I'd say 80% + full. I was in section 127, I'd say most of them stood the whole time (I DID). Songs that got the most reaction were Radio GAGA (crowd did very weil with the clapping!), BoRap, and of course the encore songs.

Sorry I don't have pics as of yet, my digital camera is ancient and sucks at distance shots so I used a disposable, I dunno how they'll turn out.

I'm wondering, how did the crowd compare to other shows (this is the only one I was able to make)?

It was a damn good show, I wish Freddie would've been there. Paul did as good of job as could be expected. Not everyone thought this tour was a good idea, but I appreciate Brian and Rog for having the balls to do it, without them I would've never heard these songs live. Seeing them in action was brilliant. Half of Queen is still better than any other band out there now IMO.

I look forward to seeing some of your guys' photos and your take on it

ROCK ON!

Well-said, Rickell...you're spot on. This band on it's worst night, without it's lead singer, and a half-empty arena still kicks the crap outta practically any band I could name.

Finally made it back, the concert was IMO better then NJ even with less people, seeing a 80 year old grandma dancing for about 3 songs really is something and 15 year old kids holding up "Long live Freddie" signs was also something.
So Happy they played IWTBF and UP and I do like that version of Dragon attack. All the Bad company/Free songs seemed to get a huge amount of clapping compared to some of the Queen songs.
They should Drop Radio Ga Ga, or atleast have some one other then Roger sing it, he sings good but has no emotion for that song.
I think I seen Jereon, I did see some one holding a dutch flag, and also another person holding what I think I was the French flag.

Security: I had a big ol' purse, full of girl scout cookies, two cameras and $ store products. The security guy started to laugh and never checked through everything. I could have gotten away with a proper camera if I had one.

The show was fun, I think I enjoyed it better than NJ. Would have preferred to stand up and dance, but up there it was too steep. The only ones dancing close to us were clearly drunk to their brains.

P & E nice to see you two at the HRC. I know Bill enjoyed it.

Anybody meeting anywhere for the Detroit show?

OMG! Cleveland was magic :)

The crowd really enjoyed the Bad Co and Free material, and there were probably 3x the size crowd of Pittsburgh. Danny had some great moments, esp the Dragon Attack solo...Mary scored great tix and we sat three rows from the stage. Amazing, Thanks guys!

Anybody else have some pics? I'm off to get mine developed today, hopefully scanned & posted sometime soon. I'd be neat to see the show from a different view.

Went to the Rock hall today. I must say I was a tad disappointed at the lack of Queen stuff. Wouldn't mind havin' the NOTW drum that's there, though! I think my favorite things were John Lennon's report cards and Jimi Hendrix's childhood drawings.

Oh Pieter of little faith! Not only would Lisser have gotten her camcorder in the arena, she would have convinced all the security guys to take off their shirts! ;) She totally rocks!

Based on fan reviews, the band probably would have been well served to have bypassed Buffalo and Pittsburgh. Maybe then Cleveland would have sold out.

I caught the Cleveland show last night. The band played well. The audience was not as energetic as I hoped, but what can you do?

My only other comment is that I wish Queen would pick up the tempo on some of the tunes (Radio GaGa, FBG, and The Show Must Go On come to mind). The tracks come off more heavy than hard, which I think takes some excitement out of the equation. (Notice in Queen's Live Aid set how Radio GaGa was sped up a little -- it was great.)

It would have been no sweat to get a video camera into there. No sweat at all. Our digital camera records video, I recorded a few minutes here and there of the show.

Sound is suprisingly good, wish I had recorded more.

Boy, did I get a TON of pics! The only problem I had was finding our way back to our hotel DRUNK in the freezing cold. That sucked. Once we got back, though, we continued to party down.

What a fun day and night. Was very cool to meet Erin, Pieter, and Shay. They all probably think I'm wierd. ha ha ha

Just getting around to making a post about my quick trip to Cleveland. The boys rocked Cleveland. The band was tight--much more than when I saw them in New Jersey last year, IMO. The crowd, on the other hand, was pretty lame. Maybe it was just me, but I didn't think they were overly enthusiastic. Nothing like NJ last year. In fact, I thought besides "Under Pressure" and "Bohemian Rhapsody," the Bad Company songs got a bigger response than the Queen songs. I asked 2 different security people if they knew how many tickets were sold--they both said a little over 7,000.

I thought "Under Pressure" was kick ass (other than Brian's attempt at falsetto...lol). Didn't think they were gonna play it since it didn't come in the middle of the set like it had been at earlier shows. Could have done without "I Want To Break Free" (like the studio version but never cared for the live version--even with Freddie). I thought "Take Love" sounded more like a Paul Rodgers solo song or maybe a reject from one of the songs he wrote for the Bad Company reunion back in 1999-2000 that may have been reworked?? Was an OK song--just wasn't very memorable, IMO. "Dragon Attack" was simply awesome. Overall, I'm extra glad I went and had the best freakin' seats you could ask for for $80.

Went to the Rock & Roll HoF this morning for about an hour or so. Had a couple Queen items on display--a replica of Brian's guitar, John's bass, Roger's News Of The World bass drum, and Freddie's Works tour costume. Overall, pretty much the same stuff in there as the last time I was there 5 years ago (although I would've killed for that Rolling Stones pinball machine).

Wish my trip didn't have to be so quick. Didn't get out of the 'Nati 'til late on Tuesday 'cos of work so I didn't arrive in Cleveland til 6:30 so I missed the get-together at Hard Rock, and had to come back early today to finish the project (it was supposed to be in the mail on Monday...lol). But it was great to see Aaron P. and Pieter again, and great to meet Haystacks (even if they were all briefly).
