Paul rocked the house last night in Connecticut!

Set List:

Closer
Rock Steady
Running with the Pack
Simple Man
Good Loving Gone Bad
Radioactive
Satisfaction Guaranteed
Silver Blue and Gold
Bad Company
Fire and Water
Little Wing
Feel Like Making Love
Shooting Star
Rock & Roll Fantasy
Can't Get Enough

Encore

Saving Grace
All Right Now

2nd Encore

Ready for Love

The house went crazy when Paul opened with Closer from The Firm. Maybe Queen and Paul Rodgers could use it their set.

as good as paul was. His band was utter crap. He must have known Brian and Roger and bring his songs so much more to life and add craftsmanship to them. After listening to Brian and Roger playing his songs many times, tonight sounded like a tribute band. I hope he uses his noodle and finishes these dates and gets back with brian and roger.

To say that the band was "utter crap" is being a bit harsh don't you think? You're comparing second tier musicians to argueably the greatest guitar and drum players of them all! Paul was in grande form and I was fortunate enough to be standing right at the stage!!! I wish I was that close in Worcester, I would've damn well pissed myself! My only disappointment were the 2 idiots who started a brawl towards the end of the show about 3 rows back from center stage. Cheers!

I was right at the stage also...left hand side, and had the pleasure of shaking Paul's hand...
I dont think the band sucked or was crap.
I think people are comparing them to Queen and thats not fair
Paul was definitely in his element doing his own material and seemed to be having a blast!
It was my birthday and I bought these tickets as a gift to mysllf...what a THRILL!!!!!
I loved silver blue and gold the way he performed it last night....It was all amazing...Rock n Roll Fantasy, Shooting Star, Feel Like Makin' Love...he was ON...smiling, dancing awesome....
i would see him again in second, and i also have to give kudos to Cynthia who was very gracious and talked to all of Paul's fans, a very very nice woman
Great night!

maybe it also shows that he wanted to be closer to the fans again
how well he's doing?
this man is 56 years old, has had many many years of fame and fortune
i dont see that he HAS to do anything
and anyone who was there last night gets it
that man rocked and i dont care if he played to 1500 or 15000
he was awesome
and i didnt gamble, so that comment didnt work either

oh my God...i got to go backstage, to his dressing room, and i met him after the show. it was UNBELIEVABLE. say what you want about him "replacing" Freddie, none of which i agree with, but he is an incredibly talented performer, and one of the nicest people i have ever met.

Ya know-kudos to Paul for what he did for us,Bravo!!,But to sit thru a set of PR only stuff with b grade session players,i will pass.After watching King Freddie wow audiences its is difficult to groove to a 60 year old man in a muscle shirt singing under key and cutting high notes.Paul as QPR YES..anything else must say no.

Too f*cking funny.
Queen fans complaining about Paul Rodgers doing a solo tour.
He can do whatever he wants. If he decides not to play with Q+PR good for him. If he decides to play with Q+PR again good for him. If he does solo tours with musicians who aren't Brian and Roger(therefore they must be second rate) good for him. If he decides to go busking on Granville Street in Vancouver good for him.
It's his life, his career and his choice.
I'm embarassed to call myself a Queen fan when I see the crap some Queen fans spew.

Thank You- I agree. Long Live Paul!! Long Live Brian!! Long Live Roger.

Just a thought to those complaining- well you could say the same thing about Roger Taylor's and Brian May's solo tours and the "second rate" musicians who played with them and the venues!!! In 1999 Roger Taylor played in dumpy-dirty clubs that held no more than 500-1000 folks--He wanted to be with his fans and we had a great time...I would have much preferred to have seen him in a Casino venue....enough said!!!

The MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas reportedly had 15000 people on the QPR gig, but - and this IS a question, I'm not affirming:

Isn't it technically a Casino venue? What's wrong with this?

Cheers,

"Take Love" wasn't played? It seems that PR thinks of this songs as a proper(the first) Queen+PR song!!
