Should be a blast, I'm looking forward to seeing how he does the songs his own way.

Good deal :)

It's nice to see Paul spending the first half of the month on tour rather than doing something silly like recording with Queen :-P

I thought Mr. Rogers was dead. "Won't you be my neighbor" LOL

Have fun. Paul Rodgers got some 17 year old guitarist touring with him. Hope it's good.

Well it was a great show, no surprise, the band were hot and so was I in the third row at the front, Brian and Roger were in attendance however didn't play, but a certain Gary Moore did, and came up on stage to tear the place down, he can still rock with the best of them.

Paul got a great reaction from the crowd with all his old favs, too many to mention.

It was a good old rock and roll show with all the trappings, Brian looked to be enjoying himself with the guys afterwards and Paul dedicated Wishing Well to "the guys from Queen"

A great night, shame they close the M4 at night afterwards just to spoil my fun!

Thanks for this Togg. Glad you had a good time. Did Steve Rodgers perform? If yes, are you able to share any observations? Thanks again.

CQ: are you out on the trail again? :)

No Steve didn't perform (that I'm aware of I wouldn't recognise him)

Paul seemed pretty pleased with the show, the band were very tight, and his lead guitarist (ex heart guitarist) was amazing but I have to say he looks like an ordinary bloke not a rock star and is in urgent need of a good hair cut!!

Anyway sound was good although as I often find in the Albert Hall the vocal can get lost. Paul asked if the sound was good but I don't think he waited to hear the answer!

Brian was standing in a corridor after the show and talking to the band, he seemed very up and was wearing his long black coat, very rock n roll, didn't see Roger but he was there, as were Anita and Spike and Jamie I believe.

Paul's other guitarist the 17 year old was stunning and clearly has a great career ahead of him.

Paul handed out plectrums to people on the front row and took a bunch of flowers at the end. he ended the show with him doing Seagull alone on stage.


Gary Moore was a great surprise, man he can still play, but the years haven't been kind to him and he know looks even less like a rock god, however he still have the magic touch.

He seemed unhappy with his amps set-up to begin with and tweaked it several times during his performance. But by the end he was as clear as a bell.

It would have been amazing if Brian would have joined them I spent some time looking around the stage for a hidden AC30 but it was not to be!

Nevertheless and great show that brought back fond memories of the Queen tour and my long lost youth listening to Free & Bad Company albums
