This day last year QPR played one out of 3 European outdoor gigs in Cologne, Germany .

I have very nice memories of this day. Cheers to everybody who was there. Double cheers to those who came to the QZ meeting:)

A bit rainy but cool:-) I'd love to see them again... I always thought they were going to play Now I'm Here (in Cologne or Arnhem) but I was wrong... it's a shame, maybe in 2007?

One of the last dates of the Pim & Niek Loosch in Europe '05 Tour.

It was good to have Queen as our support act

Sadly I was not there, however a friend phoned in from the gig and I listened to two or three tracks!! sounded like a blast.

Great - dispite the weather it was to me the best day of the whole year and still, without any doubt, technically this was the very best QPR show of them all!

A great day (despite the rain), a fantastic concert and a wonderful memory. They ROCKED !!!
They had the crowd in the palm of their hands - and seemed to enjoy themselves as well.

Definately the best gig of the ones I've been to. Plus it's my hometown!

I saw the band 4 times on their spring tour but Cologne was simply not an option for me, since I had to return to my country, haha :). Either way, I met many European fans and everybody was looking forward for the outdoor gigs, particulary Cologne. I wish I had seen the band in a bigger venue, Prague was the biggest crowd for me, but it was a very intense gig. San Diego was a million times better, if you ask me, hehe :). I guess they had it figured out a year later and the setlist was better.

I'd like to say hello to Barbara, Miklos, Martin, Attila, Thorsten and the german guys from the John Deacon fan club. It was nice to meet you all! :)

Cologne....!

Great memories...! Absolute highlight of the tour for me.

Nice to meet all of you guys (Leonardo, Wiliam, Barbara, Klaus, Thorsten, Miklos.. etc)!

Hope they will be touring again soon!

See you at the Dutch fan meeting Barbara!

A year ago I was in Aruba making blender drinks and Mexican food for fellow world travelers. Oh yeah, I was also gearing up for the Peter Frampton gig Friday night and seeing Q+PR in the sauna that was Saturday night. It was a great week!

Wow, Ducksoup, you dug up some old cow! ;-)

But a good one - so no complaints :-)
We'll all do all the things we did in Cologne again next year, I'm sure!
